Well, if you do something like, say, downclock GPU core by 200MHz and Mem by 400MHz, it would considerably lessen the heat & power draw. If it still crashes, I would start suspecting your motherboard...
Lucid Virtu is an endless source of problems and could have played a part. It really is a terrible hack for a "problem" that really needs from-the-ground-up support in DirectX (which it currently doesn't have).
With so many tests I maked in my system, I finaly discovered more details of the problem:
- DirectX10 e DirectX11
Other functions of DX11 like Tesselation don't work (Heaven unigine test, nvidia unlimited city) even the games such BF3, FEAR3 don't run.
So I had a great idea to do.
Uninstall all programs and drivers of Nvidia and install it again.
3Dmark Vantage Score: 25584 (only with 1 card 580gtx with the profile Performance).
I went to nvidia control panel and checked if the SLI was enabled. Nope, not enabled, so I activated and run again the benchmark.
The result was= hardware device removed.
When I disabled the SLI and decide to run again 3DMark Vantage, gave me again the same error.
I told before that the bios version of the graphic cards are different because one is Asus Geforce 580gtx (first version) and the other is a Geforce 580GTX DCII.
Jarnis or somebody can help me out ?
Do you I need to format the ssd and reinstall Windows 7 to have directx10 and 11 without errors?
Thanks(sry for my english)
