    ASUS EAX1600XT problem..

    i brought an asus abn5x motherboard and ASUS EAX1600XT with an amd 64 3000 processor. i formatted my hard drives, installed windows, and installed an ATI display driver from the ATI site. after updating everything else, i wanted to see what counter-strike source looked like with my new pc, it played fine for about 30 seconds and my pc completely crashed..
    when my pc booted up again it said that there was an error with my display drivers. so i uninstalled my driver using driver cleaner and installed the drivers straight from the cd i got with the card and tried it, and it completely crashed before i even picked a server to play on..

    anyone got any ideas?

    Is it a passive (no fan) card? If so direct a case fan near it. If its an active (ie with fan) one, is the fan spinning?

    For both it should thermally throttle itself, rather than crashing, what temperature is it running at?

    yes there is no fan on the card, im going to move one of my case fans near it. my catalyst control center dosnt say what temperature it is just 0 degrees. when it crashes you can just hear a repeating sound and my monitor just gets no signal, with the sound still repeating.

    Also might want to check your PSU is supplying enough power, if its not you will get the crashes, also if the power connector to the grpahics card is not connected that can also be a problem

    i cant see any socket or power connector on/for the graphics card. is it worth supplying more power by changing the values in the bios? if so how much and on what??

    the values in the bios shouldnt need changing, and afaik the x1600xt doesnt require an external power source

    Do not touch the voltages in the bios, it's almost definitely PSU related, how did you identify the card was overheating? What PSU do you have?

    tagan 480 watt. theres 28 amps on the +3.3 rail, 48 on the +5 and 28 on the +12. ive found pci express plugs on the psu but i dont know what there for, as ive lost the box and manual for it. ive tried putting a fan right next to the card to cool it, it worked for abit and overheated again. ive been touching to gpu + heatsink to feel how hot it was and i could tell it was really hot

    It will be really hot, to the point where you think it's overheating and that definitely shouldn't be ruled out as the cause, but modern GPU's run between 50c-70c, rather hot.

    You could consider an aftermarket cooler, the obvious suggestion being an arctic cooling solution of some kind.

    laze.

    i dont think its overheating now, its crashing and my gpu isnt even warm. also if i leave it in the counter-strike source main menu for 2 minutes it does the same crash then also. :/
