Question RTX2060 single fan model taken from a Dell desktop having issues


Jun 19, 2017
Hi All,

This is my very first post requesting for help online as I have always managed to find relevant information and troubleshooting on forums however I have hit a hurdle with my RTX 2060 and cannot seem to find any work around or similar issues anywhere.

Basically I bought a second had RTX 2060 that was taken out of a Dell machine. The card is installed and I have downloaded the latest drivers however when I run most games it will crash out with out me lowering the mem clock and speed in MSI After burner. What is odd is that Valley benchmark will crash out instantly but later benchmarks work okay. Games such as GTX5 HITMAN need to be under clocked as where Project Cars will run fine. I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling drivers, have even flashed bios with other ones to see if it made any difference in which it didn't so I had to restore from backup. The card isnt getting hot and I have lots of air flow. Any advice or trouble shooting advice would be highly regarded.
