    6990 Gpu 2 dead?

    kinwaras

      Hi, I Bought a HD6990 dual gpu card several years back.. i began noticing that i had to decrease my gaming settings continuously till now when i formated the hard drive and installed win 8.1 on it.. but now with both gpu monitor, and AMD's system monitor, it says the 2nd Gpu is continuously at 99% usage and at a fixed 70 degrees Celsius.. i Saw some other forum topics regarding the same problem as to a Drivers patch 13.1 i think. is there anyway to be sure if it's a software glitch or if it's truly toast..? and what to do in either case.. the card is from Club HD.

       

      the setup is a ROG Maximus Extreme iv-z and a 2600K processor. along with  8gb of ddr3 ram.

          Just an idea, I had to reduce my OCs slightly on 7970 over time, as dust buildup occured on the BBA/Launch cooler. Cleaned it out, back to crazy low idles and much less noise.

           

          But what you describe sounds more likely to be a driver issue, but possibly combination of both.

            "it says the 2nd Gpu is continuously at 99% usage and at a fixed 70 degrees Celsius"

             

            Is that at full normal 3d gpu clock and pcie bus speed by the way ? Better check with MSI Afterburner while in-game/ fullscreen for better monitoring results.

            Is crossfirex working normally as well ? Are you using the latest 15.7 WHQL catalyst driver ? Did you check for malware yet, just in case ?

                both are registering at being in a x16pci-e and im using catalyst cc 15.7.. no malware... it wont register crossfire, think that's the problem but i cant find anything about it online.. only a lot of dead topics.. and i hadn´t touched over clocking or the oc switch before now, just switched the switch to se if something happnd.. atm it's not regisrting any false load and the temp is quite cool ~50 celsius..
