if you run on stock BIOS then how high can you clock your mem..?
post #5652 of 6048
Alright so I've done some quick testing just using the OC scanner's Furry-Tessy Donut test. I used to be able to hit an average fps of 113, now I've even gone back to stock but I've just added the 100% for fan because it really does help my top GPU a lot. I get 78fps average and I'm lucky if during the test it hits 100 now frown.gif

I don't really get what I've done, all I did was flash it back to stock and then re-flash it with the fan aspect enabled, I've checked all the other settings and they are back to stock, I loaded my old OC profile which worked perfectly fine for this test. It's really odd.

curious to see how this turns out and if you get your clocks back.

I definitely must have noobed something. The problem isn't actually the clocks oddly enough, I have my current clocks without an issue, the problem is when I'm doing the test I'm getting about 20fps lower than usual, I've gotten it up to 95fps now. Might have needed a warm up. That being said, I am pretty ecstatic that now under extreme stress testing my top card hits 70 max and dips back down to 69. It isn't like before where it would climb up to 80c+

My bottom card never breaks 58c either smile.gif

The 100% fan speed is a must, I just wonder why this is happening since I did actually just use my original bios with the fan tweaked only in order to make my current custom rom.

EDIT: I have an update lmao

OK so I was one of those noobs that said "reinstalling the drive? Screw that, that's for noobs" and I went ahead with it anyways, well, some people need to reinstall it and I was one of those people. Also I realized even though I was clicking check for updates and it wasn't finding any, I'm severely ADD and I wasn't ever noticing that it had previously found a new driver but wasn't updating it. So when I reinstalled the drive I also got the new one. 211fps in the test now, prior to this I was getting maximum 115fps even before I messed up my bios. Obviously now I'm going to go re-do the bios stuff and see what I can achieve biggrin.gif

Realized SLI was disabled cause I did a clean install. Enabled it and I'm now getting like 120fps on the test. Will do some heaven's later once I re-do the bios and give you the results.

post #5656 of 6048
Alright I finally have an update.

After doing a ton of messing around and benchmarks.

3dmark11 Firestrike 11494 ---> 12116
Heaven 1980 ---> 2055

This is the best I could improve them.

Card #1: 1241mhz+1760mhz
Card #2: 1267mhz+1760mhz

I'm probably doing something wrong. But whatever it's still better than before.

Also Metro Last Light 30-40fps (pre bios update, higher OC and new driver) and now its 40-55fps.

To be honest that's a huge improvement, I know a lot of it is likely the driver but still.

Edit: Folding caused the 1241mhz one (lol) to crash, so I had to lower it. Any reason why if I set it to the highest possible voltage it just crashes constantly but when I don't it's fine? I'd have to imagine more voltage should help the card OC, not make it worse.

Hmmm I might be having some SLI issues. Disabled it in games and frame stutters that brought me to 0 fps for seconds at a time went away. The heck is up with my SLI o.o

Anyone got any ideas?

Currently trying a driver reinstall and removed any gfx utilities to see if there were conflicts there, weird stuff.

update on what's happening.?

Heres what I did.. First set restore stock settings in Nvidia control Panel and restore both of your cards back to stock settings. ( you can leave the flashed bios in just make sure the cards are set back to the factory default). Then uninstall the nvidia drivers. Do it the proper way.. Deleting folders manually etc.. Do some googles for the proper way to do a complete uninstall of the nvidia drivers because just an uninstall from the programs windows only uninstalls about 40% of everything.. You need to use driver sweeper and others to do it properly.. Google it.. Its actually pretty in-depth. Then turn the PC off. Remove one card and only have one card installed (obviously in the primary PCIe slot) and reboot. Reinstall the latest drivers. Also use the nvidia PCIe 3.0 patch if you need too NOW.. It should be done straight after a fresh driver install. . . Now start overclocking and testing on just the one card.. Get the max over clocks and write them down (and mark the card so you know which one is which.). Turn the PC off and swap cards.. Now do some overclocking on the 2nd card (with it in the primary slot again).. Get its max clocks and write them down. They will be different from the other card because no two cards are the same. (this is where everyone goes wrong. they try to overclock both cards together in SLI and that doesnt work to 100% proper). Then turn the PC off and install the fastest card in the primary slot and the lowered clockable card in slot 2. When you reboot you'll notice that you DONT NEED TO INSTALL DRIVERS FOR THE 2ND CARD.. It actually uses the first installed drivers (and this again is where many faults happen.. When you have two cards installed, Windows tries to install the nvidia drivers twice, once for each card.. this is wrong and cause many faults) Now load up X Precision or after burner (AND FLICK THE SWITCH FROM SYNCED TO UNSYNCED OR UNLINKED) You dont want the cards to run together... ... Then enter in the specs you wrote down for each card.. Remember that your fastest card is on slot one and so will be shown as the first card in the programs.. It is a myth that both cards need to be at the same speed.. TOTALLY INCORRECT. Enable SLI and you will be golden.. You now have both of your cards running in SLI and each with an independent overclock. THis will be much more stable than the lower card (which you didn't know of before) trying to reach the fastest cards clocks. And crashing the heck out of your PC. I hope this helps some people..
