Thanks for your words of encouragement.. but i'm having second thoughts of doing the OC for now.. maybe in the future if ill be playing a more demanding game for graphics.. currently i am playing Diablo 3, civilization 5, Dota 2 and other games that are not like the BF3 level. But if you will advice me on the benefits of doing OC now, i'll surely going to try it. smile.gif

Nah, radeon Pro is kind of useless imo because with CCC you can do almost the same with specific 3D profiles per application.

And don't even try increasing the voltage on your card until you know exactly what you are doing and are willing to spend the time required to vet your OC. Otherwise you will be having a funeral for your days old card.
If you want to jump into settings on stock voltage and you have good airflow in your case... If it is a non-reference cooler like the MSI Twin Frozr I would say you should be able to hit 1000 GPU and 1400 memory easily. But make sure you have GPUz installed to watch your temps as your run tests on it. But I strongly advise you do it right starting at your default clock speeds and OC in small increments and test each one.

That "whoa" made my day.biggrin.gif
Yes i already stopped OC as of the moment because i noticed that i don't need it for the meantime.. i say this because of my limited knowledge with the benefits of OCing today.

Sorry, I am a competitive beast. When I saw the word challenge, I couldn't resist.

Used to own a 7950, which actually benched a touch higher than this in Unigine. 670 beats it in 3DMark11, but they are awfully close in a lot of benchamarks I have run. Gaming though, I would give a slight advantage to Nvidia, for a touch nicer image quality, a fraction more smoothness even at 60 FPS, and also when dropping below 60 w/ Vsync, the 670 seems to handle that a little easier. But, both amazing cards and I am proud to have owned either one of them.

BTW, my Gigabyte 670 never touched 55C in this Unigine run. The coolest card I have ever seen. Even while flying above 1200Mhz with a hot Ivy CPU to contend with.

Ivy bridge at 90C is not pushing so much heat at case at all, SB at 70C will push more heat in case than IB at 90-95C, because all that heat is trapped beneath IHS.

how are 28degrees in idle with air cooling? good?
post #13739 of 38701
I own just a few of these cards. {8 or so} so I may not apply.
both ATI and Nvidia
3 of these -- R7970 Lightning --
even tho I would join your little group. Its a pain in the @ to set these machines up just to satisfy you're requirements for registration.

Yup, very good, my card idles at 30-35C, depending on room temp.
