No cooling issues on V2 at all, your link is about first revision.

Oh, right sorry. Never knew a second edition came out.

Could also be insufficient voltage for that overclock (not sure on that). Your temperatures look fine though. If you don't see any of those artifacts at stock without overclocking, could just be that 1150 is too high of an overclock for your card on air cooling.

I get artifacts and crashes, when i pressed youtube video, with few GPU-z interations in the background.

I disabled HW acc and the issue is fixed at least for now.

Also please guys, someone explain me this.

How important is to go with small steps when you OC GPU's ? lets say if my card is good to pass 30 mins test 1150/1500 with small steps, will it crash quite a bit faster on if i jump from 950/1250 to 1150/1500 directly or even on lower clocks? does this really affect stability so much? thanks in advance!

Well, its really to do with not frying you card. For example, if your card @ load was 60 degrees stock clocks then you overclock your card to 1150 and your temps were 92 degrees, your effectively reducing your cards lifespan. Same thing goes with overvolting, setting the voltage to 1.3 without any small steps could possibly fry/overheat your hardware. I usually check my temperatures before make another small step. Overclocking is really about patience and not being overly greedy. You could go in big leaps but its not recommended.

yeah mate slowly find your stable core then move on to memory..

with memory slowly increase it and also do a 3Dmark11 bench as say your get your memory to 1600 and score 9000 graphics score then raise your memory to 1650 and you graphics score drops to 8800 this means your memory is recieving data to fast to process and has entered ECC mode in which is why the performance decrease.. thus while overclocking your vRAM its best to run a 3Dmark11 run to test this..

PS: i think heaven crashed becuase i increased my CPU OC and wasnt stable as on reboot i entered BIOS and had an error about system crashing due to overclocking and my CPU went back to stock

Thanks rep +

Yea, i know how DDR5 EC works, i was just wondering, how much effect has direct oc compared to slow steps, if the card temps are in check lest say 70-73 max, i guess this card have troubles over 75 regarding oc/stability.

Regarding your crash, just enter BIOS, and your CPU oc/settings should be back, thats how GB BIOS worked in the past, i think its similar now as well.

If you have some spare time, please do max heaven oc bench, with GPU-Z in the background showing max VRM/core temps, 15 mins loop would be enough thumb.gif

cool, yeah i went back to my stable OC of 4.5 as i wrote the settings down.... i will do the heaven run in the morning.. its 4.30pm here so its family time soon and i am on my lappy.. thumb.gif

Got my 7950 day before last! Been having some constant driver issues while overclocking, but i think each time it crashes, it just means i need more voltage...
Anyway, so far im only at a OC of 1060/1250, working up slowly!

You're right. Technically, that's not a driver issue, when it crashes, recovers, and says that the display driver had stopped responding. That's most certainly too little voltage, too much heat, too much clock, or a combination thereof.
