good job buddy glad your improving, now update your sig

edit: guys the last few days have been really busy for me, this is a link to the biggest polish overclocking portal and forum, there is an interview with me on the first page the site is in polish but you can set the translator on the right to english, its not perfect but youll get the general idea

Mad props to you, Great story, love to see you turn the passion into a full time job. Support your family and pay the bills, much respect for you.

I'm curious, what are your voltages you guys use for gaming?

Just want to know how far I should push my card

1.15V is as high as i go for gaming, theres only a couple that i use that with though. As for everything else im at 1.10V, but my temps never go above 50C.
post #1755 of 3582
i also use around 1.1v but i don't push my clocks anymore than 900/1800/2100

i used to do 925 on the core, but i would have to run 1.15v and i would see temps hitting 90's (with the fan on auto)

i havent really retested it with the fan on a set speed... it runs great at 900.. and i keep the fan at 65%

Only raise the volts when overclocking. For any games i play right now im pretty happy with what my stock 580 offers. Not sure as i dont monitor stock performance.......quickly looks shows 1.06 right now and lows show .96

Thank you very much Cravinmild, its great when you realize you are actually living your dream

just had a look there, my best one can actually do 1018mhz at 1.150v it needs only 1.056 for 1000mhz thou so from that moment it need a silly amount of v to scale althou id say it will do much better on water

There's usually a *very* tight window in between where the card reaches it's max stable OC and where it flat out crashes. If you're presently within this window, that's the place where you can get some big performance degradation ...

One option, as KP mentioned, if you're comfortable w/this approach, is to keep your present clocks, and increase the voltage a bit, which of course should usually increase stability at a given clock.

If that still doesn't work, you can probably assume that you've hit the wall AFA the OC'ing you can do on that card. In which case, you should probably just drop the clocks slightly, to the point where your 3dMark11 score is significantly higher than what you get at stock clocks. And remember to only look at your GPU score ... the overall score is very 'diluted' by the CPU's effects.

Thanks for the info. I figured it out though. For whatever reason (Maybe the MSI AB BETA im using) if I have the option checked to sync similar cards in MSI my performance takes a hit. Once I unchecked that my performance soared to new heights.
