[GTX 590] Flashing & Overclocking Thread - Page 21

post #201 of 721
Im runing my core 690 mem 3600. GPU1: 0.925v - GPU2: 0.913v

using nvidia driver 280.19 smile.gif 3dmark11 P10655

add: there is a little hint (i think it is but who knows) - first 1-2 runs starts with very low fps, my record is 12 fps at benchmark startup. what i do is canceling bench after 20-30 sec and start over again - looks like some kind of warming the card =) (from idle 25C it could be some sort of coldbug)

I eagerly await your results. I'll go back to my old method (run heaven 1 pass just watching then bench) for Heaven. I also rolled-back my mobo BIOS which brought my pscore up ~200 points on average and my graphics score went up by about the same amount. It makes me wonder how much these older BIOS might be throttling performance if the newer ones throttle it like crazy. Of course, in the new BIOS half the features don;t work (incl. vcore, LLC, PWM) and this older one has the same bugs minus vcore and llc and runs the processor ~10C hotter. It also has the crazy boot cycling issue. Gigabyte needs to get their act in gear. Pronto.

Do you have a verification URL?


ETA:
Okay physics scores should be very similar at the same settings. Here's some food for thought concerning Gigabyte's BIOSes.

With the same BIOS, similar runs produce physics and GPU scores within ~50-75 points of each other most of the time.

I noticed drastic changes when I rolled-back to the F2 BIOS so I did a little "experiment."

-Setup:
System specifications in signature.
CPU-> 4.4GHz 1.296V Load 1.284V Idle
GPU-> 740/869/.975V Load .875V Idle
Programs running during testing-> Microsoft Security Essentials, 3DMark11, MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 5, nVIDIA settings (toolbar link), Intel Rapid Storage Technology, Realtek HD Audio Manager, Spybot-SD Resident, CoreTemp.

-Method:
3DMark11 was run five times under each BIOS revision to eliminate 'one-off' scores. Each run was done after a clean boot and initiated only when both dies of the GPU had reached 31C stable and the processor was at 24C as read in EasyTune6 and TouchBIOS. CoreTemp read the idle at 36C. Therefore, CoreTemp is not an accurate measurement of real temperature, but does accurately represent the load-idle delta. 3DMark11 scores are represented as the average of five runs. Temperatures were taken after one run of 3DMark11, with the max of each core being logged by CoreTemp. The temperatures were then averaged across the five runs using the following formula->
RxAmax = (c0+c1+c2+c3)/4
Dx = RxAmax - 36
AmaxT = sum(R0Amax,+R4Amax)/5
DxT = sum(D0,D4)/5

-CPU Max Temps:
F2 BIOS-> 54.5C / Delta 18.5C
F3 BIOS-> 46.2C / Delta 10.2C

-Results:
F2 BIOS-> P10670 / Gfx11187 / Phys9851 / Combo8734
F3 BIOS-> P10547 / Gfx10890 / Phys10186 / Combo8922

-Conclusion:
Stay far away from Gigabyte Z68 boards until they get their BIOS problems worked out. Also, BIOS does have an effect on your scores! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Is there a Gigabyte rep on the boards?

ok...benched
here are the results:
stock settings
stock score

720 settings
720 score

790 settings
790 score

as you can see, score is really lower with lower memory OC

Got another GTX 590 coming soon, hopefully it doesn't.. go kaboom like the last one. tongue.gif

I was really hoping RAM might have less of an impact on the scores. Well poo. Thanks for doing that btw.

ETA: Well I just found out that I can change any frequency setting in BIOS and it will always boot at 4.4GHz regardless of voltage. Afterburner also said that it expires in a week and I have no clue what that means.

My card plateaus lower but scores higher with the F2 BIOS, scores super low with F3, and if I change anything in my RAM it fails P95 in .1 seconds. Tried increasing the QPI voltage to 1.20 to make it stable and raised DRAM to 1.65 but it does nothing for stability. There's no readout for QPI, either; so I have no way of verifying that the feature even works. If it doesn't work at all then that would be par for the course for these BIOS. They really are that bad.

Until some fixes are released there is no way I can push forward and feel good about the health of my components so I'm going to download 280.26 and throw in the towel until the motherboard features actually function.
