After stepping up a couple of times i just got impatient and went in at 1.35 vcore, and while i was there i upped the vtt to 1.15. Though with the extra heat my headroom for improving on this overclock is quickly disappearing lol. And theres no way im gonna use the second or third setting on my H80 since its far too loud.
I might be able to shed a little off these voltages when i have time. Either way they are both at pretty safe levels.
How is it possible that your gflops are that high? People running at 5ghz on this forum have not posted that high? Is it because of the 133 strap? I really dont care about what gflops im getting, but just curious.
Also i tried using XMP profile with 2000mhz for my ram timings and disabled Hyper Threading last night. Everything is still stable.
However, I reran pcmark 7 basic and lost about 150 points compared to running manual overclock and keeping HT on. What's up with that? I'm still using 125 X 37. Does XMP change anything else besides ram times?
Am i better off changing it back to manual overclock and adjusting my ram timings? I heard a couple of you had some issues posting when doing this though.
We have a benchmarking competition coming up at work and im trying to get the highest score i can on pcmark 7 and 3dmark 11. We must run 20 passes of IBT to make sure its stable first.
I'm just curious what other tweaks I should try to get a higher score.
So far I have 5394 on pcmark7 on manual overclock and 11173 on 3dmark11 with my 480's at 800mhz core and 1900mhz memory.Edited by B3AST - 3/30/12 at 8:45am
