MSI 560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC Freezing up in BF3
« on: 01-December-11, 23:53:22 »

Hello,

I installed this card yesterday and yesterday i had no problems with it, but today, when playing BF3, about 5 minutes into the game it freezes up completely. The screen just freezes up like a screenshot, and my whole PC won't respond anymore. When playing MW3 everything is fine. No freeze-ups at all and the game is running great. Im using the 280.26 Drivers from the MSI-site. Everything else in my system is up to date. It's really annoying because I bought this card for BF3 and it runs this game great, but now I'm only allowed to play for 5 minutes before freezing..

I'm using the following setup:

Motherboard: P5E
CPU: Core2Quad 9550 @ 2.83 Ghz
RAM: 4 GB Corsair Dominator
Soundcard: Soundblaster X-Fi Fatality
Graphics card: MSI 560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC
SSD: OCZ Vertex II
SATA 1: Western Digital 500GB
SATA 2: Seagate 320GB
750 Watt Corsair Enthousiast PSU

 What's the GPU temperature when it locks up? Test with Furmark.

Svet is right. I had the same problem with BF3 with my 6950. Downloaded the drivers from AMD and now its fine.

Also the new nvidea are especial written for BF3

Well i installed the latest nvidia drivers, but man those are unstable as hell. They even crashed when I was watching a movie! Never seen that before. I hope nvidia releases a better update soon. BF3 is not freezing up anymore, so that's a plus I guess..
