What does this mean?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to see how high I can exactly overclock my GPU. When I run GPUTool, I'll get this weird issue. (Look at first picture.) But when I do printscreen it does not show the same thing. (Look at second picture.) My guess is that the clocks I'm trying to achieve are fail overclocks and are creating this issue, although I want to know why.



*Sorry for bad picture quality. I just used my crappy phone's camera.*

It's the effects post processing passed to the shaders the GPUTool is set to test Such as MLAA. I never used GPUTool to stress test. You can lower or disable this test in the settings. But in other words your OC is not stable according to GPUTool.

Try Furmark, OCCT or Metro2033 and real games.

I ran OCCT, and it ran without any errors. (1 Hour Test) My max temp during the test was 79.5 (Should I worry?) while the average was 67.4, respectively. Could you please elaborate on real games? I assume Crysis 2 might be one of these "real games" you speak of. I did run a test on it, roughly 30 min's of gameplay on ultra (highest settings available) settings, DX11, and high res texture mod, but the same issue as image 1 occurred, as seen of above in post one. The clocks I did all these test was 880Mhz Core Clock, 1375Mhz Memory Clock on 1150V.

Yes, playing games to know if the OC was stable enough to sustain the clocks. The OC might pass stress tests but not a guarantee will pass all the games you are playing. Crysis2 (DX11, HR, Ultra) is not as stressful as Metro 2033.

The temps are fine. In CCC Overdrive set the Power Settings +20%. The OC might need more power or increase the voltage.

Do I have to use CCC Orverdrive or could I just use Sapphire TriXX?

Use CCC Overdrive to +20% and TRIXX to increase voltage or just increase the voltage if you can get away with it. Trial and error. I believe both Trixx and Afterburner will reset the PowerSetting back to 0% everytime PC restarts.

I put the voltage up to 1.155 now and played Metro 2033 on all settings Very High (highest settings available) with DX 11 enabled along with DX 11 settings. I played roughly 30 minutes and had no issues, so I'm guessing this could be fixed. I won't have enough time to actually play a game until later this weekend, but for right now I'll assume the issue is fixed.
