ASUS DirectCU / DirectCUII Owners Club - Page 34

post #331 of 1059
Hey guys. I just finished my first build, I'm running 2 GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII TOP in SLI and I'm looking for recommendations to get the most out of them. I'm new to this whole benchmarking thing too, yesterday I downloaded free 3D mark 11 and heaven. I can post pics when I'm not on my phone.

Any suggestions would be awesome for performance increases.

if you want to overclock, those cards should be hitting very close if not over(won't be much over though) 1ghz core.

but with sli, you might have to shave off a couple hundred depends on both cards overclocking potential.

overclock and test your cards individually, find the max overclock for each card, then apply the lower overclock to both cards for sli. tip: put the card which can overclock higher on top, since it has a higher overclock potential, it should run a little bit cooler at a lower clock, so let it take the extra heat from sli. run some benchmarks in sli as well, stability in single card doesn't grant you stability in sli. try furmark or heaven to check stability.

good luck overclocking your 560ti top, should be fun wink.gif

Thanks for the ideas!

Out of the box they are a 900MHz core, so I would hope they can go over 1000MHz smile.gif Pictures and some benchmarks will come tonight when I'm free.

asus out of the box overclock of 900 from default 832 is already pretty good among factory overclocks, getting another 100 out of it isn't as easy as it seems, but good luck with it and hope you can get as high as possible!

look forward to seeing your rig and final clocks wink.gif

Well I currently have the 6870 DirectCU, but just got OB 560 TI and 6950 2GB DCUII coming in Tuesday. I will be selling the 6870, but not sure if keeping 560 or the 6950. My only gripe with 6950 is that it is 3 slots and will make me remove my Xonar DG which I love. Decisions decisions. I will also benchmark all 3 in my system to give some comparisons for people.

Hey guys, question for ya...

I haven't tried 1.1v on my 560 yet but I might if you guys think its safe. The very last thing I want is to fry my card. I get stable 920MHz on stock = 1.025v and it looks like anywhere from 1.050-1.078 I get only upto 940MHz. Should I give 1.1v a try? Also, with these core clocks, I haven't touched my memory clock, do I need to up that to get a more stable clock?
Lastly, my friend is looking for a new card, in fact I have two friends that need new gfx cards. I could potentially sell my card to them and bite the bullet for another $170 or so for a 570...good choice? I'm prettymuch only going to be playing bf3 when it comes out, just wondering if it might be worth it...

Try it with 1.1 without increasing memory speed, just to see what it'll do.

Since you're running a fairly low res (768P) monitor, you don't really need to upgrade the video card right now IMHO.

I hate quoting stupid long pictures but I did the exact same test with my GTX560

Overclocked to 920MHz, stock volts. Here's what I get
FPS: 22.4
Score: 564
Min FPS: 3.7
Max FPS: 57.0
Everything the same.

Good comparison...

Here is my heaven for my (2x) Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCUII TOP in SLI. stock clocks (900/2100/1800). I can't wait to overclock!

It is a very good comparison of the previous post which is running a single 560! wow


ok a question - nvidia control panel is reporting my clocks at 900-2100-1800 and gpu-z is reporting them at 900-1050-1800.

the memory clock is doubled. who is right?
