Comparison to my Max OC on my previous card: 6970 @ 1000/1450, 1.225v

Worth every penny to me. I'm glad I didn't get Crossfire. Also, the EK installation was quick and painless. And it seems to work well so far!

Awesome thumb.gif

Did you get more stability in OCs after installing the block?

Also, what's your clock speed with the +200mhz offset? Your Boost speed isn't factored in to the GPU-Z clock speed of 1206mhz, so I was just wondering.

1284.8Mhz under full load. And I'm not sure about stability before/after installing the block since I didn't play around with my 680 before it came in redface.gif

I hit 1334Mhz(+240) in one 3DMark run, and it completed (didn't save the result unfortunately). But it wasn't stable in Heaven, so I backed it down to +200 offset. So far, it's been stable in Skyrim and I plan on giving BF3 a test run later tonight.

I noticed that my scores started going down past +400 Mhz on memory. I guess too many CRC errors at that speed. I'm completely surprised by the performance of this card though. Blazing fast and it handles driver crashes a lot better than my AMD card did.

Here's to hoping that we get a voltage unlock soon thumb.gif

Just makes me feel comfortable knowing that my card will be overclocked to he max and never go over 45c. Good way to induce longevity if you ask me.

I agree though. I hope to god this vcore problem can be solved with software updates.

Otherwise, in essence its like providing a race car to a driver with a govern on it. It blows my mind. It's like nvidia didn't even consider the consumers the card is catered for.

Okay... no reason besides feeling a bit more secure and having peace of mind. biggrin.gif

That's strange. My card does 1316 with +180 offset. Maybe the 120% was causing your card to throttle? thinking.gif

Weird, I'll max it out 132% tonight and see if it helps.

Don't forget to save/post the result! thumb.gif

Remember that if your card does 1250MHz at +150 Offset it doesn't mean our card will do it as well.

Many cards have different clocks with same offset. For example my EVGA runs at 1084MHz boost at stock while my Gigabyte does 1137Mhz. wink.gif

I get the same with two asus cards,my faster card has .02 voltage less then the slower boosting card but you need to read voltage live to see with a dmm
Did anyone find out if its hardware or bios yet wink.gifbiggrin.gif

well, for me, I can't get even +100mhz without a crash in haven, and i'm watercooled...

i'm gonna be quite angry if non reference cards come out and are not locked down like these.

I do have a 15day retun policy, so I suppose I can always return it and wait for non reference to come out...
and just hope there is some kind of update on OC'ing these bad boys in the meantime.

EDIT: I may just skip haven and use BF3 as a benchmark. since for me, thats the game i'm playing the most.

Mine is running at +170 / +350 at 90% power target and is stable in heaven, BF3, 3dmark11, but my CPU is a E6850 so my benchmark results are pretty useless as reference smile.gif
