post #11891 of 38701
Is 1150/1700 good for stock voltage?

My card just seems to hit an extra 30c if I push for around 1180 at 1.2

OCCT throotles even with power tune set +20%, GPU core is only at 1 GHz. (in my case)

Yep, those clocks are just fine. It's all about finding that balance between power and temperature.

That's why water is so amazing on these 7970s... keep all those temps down and unlock some potential.

I can't afford water cooling so I will just have to get a 120mm fan and change my airflow. I will also test to see which card runs hotter of the two, then put the hotter card on bottom.

Cheers.

HWinfo64 is more compatible with newer HD79XX cards. Much better.

Hi Daffie82, I found the difference between set Power limit to 0% and 20% in benchmark smile.gif
Just try Vantage full test, you will see same FPS in all categories but not for Feature test 1 and Feature test 6 wink.gif with 20% produces more FPS than 0%.

Yep yep, dont rely on a single program to monitor your stuff....

Of course my friend... Like i said read my crysis 2 gains... You have to understand also performance all over the board...

Hey guys. I'm new to overclocking GPU's. What is the best method for doing so? I really want to increase my performance.
