Seems confusing that higher power limit does lower clocks...

See I tried with the default power first, but that got me nowhere, the most I could do was up the core voltage 50mhz.

What card do you have and what kinda cooling do you have? tongue.gif That is an impressive OC imo

7970 lightning with the stock cooler. I don't use a case & keep things well ventilated so generally a bit better temps than average.
Also mainly a bencher, so my usual fan speed is 100%.

Well wouldn't that be nice tongue.gif Except I already have a descent graphics card and no money so the purchase isn't justified, little own possible smile.gif Not to mention that card would screw up my colour scheme xD

I'd rather just see what I can do with my current card for the time being.

Wow, well if you say so than it must be! I've always just maxed out the power limit, maybe that's where I went wrong. You're definitely the expert 420....

I've found that it depends on the bench. 3Dmark is sensitive to power draw for me. If I have volts maxed it doesn't like power slider maxed. Heaven on the other hand could care less, I can max all, all day long.

So does that just affect the actual benchmark results? Or the stability as a whole? (i.e. an OC crashes with 3Dmark but not Heaven)

LOl got very very slight wavy stuff on the screen .. there in rectangles streching from one side to another moving Vertical gotta look close to see it..

I am useing a old 17 inch TN panel.. via VGA to DVI adaptor.. wait for my cat leap to get here.. hoping it is just the old poopy monitor.. i only use this monitor on my work bench to boot systems up lol...

I had to snag it while i was waiting for the catleap.

3Dmark will not run for me if I run max volts and max ptune, it locks after the 2nd screen. Heaven on the other hand does not care.
