min vs avg vs max fps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I used Crysis Benchmarking Tool 0.33
Gamer Settings, 1920x1080 Full Screen, NO Vsync, AAx00

Run the following levels with 5 loops each.
1 Airfield Flythrough
2 Ambush Flythrough
3 Avalanche Flythrough
4 Cargo Flythrough
5 Frost Flythrough
A total of 25 Loops consecutively were ran at each clock.
NO CRASHES, NO ERRORS, NO ARTIFACTS or glitches.
ONLY GPU CLOCK IS ADJUST, the rest are @stock.

Based on my data on every increment of 5-10Mhz:
L4-Cargo has the lowest MIN fps
L1-Airfield has the highest AVG fps
L2-Ambush has the highest MAX fps

I made a chart including the average of the AVG FPS of the 5 levels.


As you can see, the MIN fps goes down as the GPU clock goes up except @1000Mhz.
However, AVG fps has a constant trend going up.
The total average also has a rising trend except @1005Mhz.
MAX fps has rising trend starting @980Mhz.

I need your opinions and reactions on my study.
Why is the minimum frame rate going down as GPU clocks higher?
Isn't it that MIN fps should be considered the most?

Dont try crysis

Crysis doesnt like overclocked GPUs!

Try another benchmark, like the Heaven benchmark or 3dmark11

Edit: try increasing your vcore more as well

Possible instability? Either heat or Vcore related?

My 560 Hawk is intended for high temps.
Ambient temp is quite hot, 30-34c. Only air cooled but great case(Antec DF-30) with additional high performance fans.
I am reaching max of 80c @950. 85c @1000+
Fan of my TFIII reaches 85-95% at full load.
Voltage is at stock 1.050V
