EVGA OC Scanner FAQ:

  • Q: Why does the EVGA OC Scanner stop scanning at 2 hours? Is there any way to increase this?
  • A: For safety reasons, EVGA limits the OC Scanner to a 2 hour burn-in. There is no way to increase this.
  • Q: Why does my card detect artifacts on stock settings?
  • A: Check to make sure that you have all "overlay" programs disabled, this includes applications such as Fraps or EVGA Precision (with OSD). EVGA OC Scanner can detect these as artifacts.
  • Q: Why does EVGA OC Scanner detect artifacts when I move the stress test window around?
  • A: On some occasions, the EVGA OC Scanner can detect a new window position as an artifact. If this happens, simply press the “reset all” button.
  • Q: How do I make full use of my SLI setup?
  • A: SLI support is available in NVIDIA driver version 256 and later.
  • Q: Does EVGA recommend using the "Unlock power draw" button?
  • A: For general artifact scanning, this button does not need to be used, nor is it recommended. General artifact scanning can be accomplished with the default settings.
  • Q: Why is the "Enable alarm" button disabled on my system?
  • A: This feature is only available in Windows XP and Windows Vista. When this feature is enabled, it will allow the PC speaker to beep if there are any artifacts found.
  • Q: Why are my PCB, Mem and VRM temperatures listed as N/A?
  • A: This is only listed on select graphics cards that have the ability to monitor these temperatures.
