680 Overclocking (Calling all owners!) - Page 63

post #621 of 1059
i don't really know much about overclocking but here is what i have so far.
+130, +155, +450, the clock reached 1253mhz
here is my heaven benchmark
heaven_2012_04_07_02_08_33_871.jpg

is this good, bad, normal?

Your card may boost to 1110 at stock, whereas somebody elses boosts to 1084. You may be able to do +100 offset, and the other guy can do +126. Which now makes your max boost clocks exactly the same.
Max clock speed is all that is relevant! My offset with my SC+ is only +50, but that gets me around 1256MHz max boost. With my vanilla 680(before I sold it) I was getting +100 offset easy.. and capping out at 1180ish. Obviously the SC is performing way better, but if I were to say "I get +50" everybody would be thinking I had a poor performing card.
There's more to these things than just the slider! Let's try to ditch the old habits and give information that is actually useful wink.gif Cheers~

Another problem is that many people still don't know that the card downclocks at 70°C and above. So what seems to be a stable clock may in the end be not stable at all when using the right fanprofile and keeping the card at lower temperatures. Anyways it turns out that my memory still had some hidden reserves:

Which translates to

- 1312MHz Core
- 3602MHz Memory

for now. CPU is running at 4,8GHz at the moment. happysmiley.gif

I can bold it and put it in my sig, to display with all my 1800~ posts. If people are still unaware of that, there's nothing further I can do thumb.gif

Meh...can't quite get 1300 in SLI. It crashes about 20 sec. into Heaven. If I just had 1.2 volts I could get it.

I already explained the whole deal with the offsets the night after release. Before I even had a card.

Seems like 1306 mhz core is stable for me so far. Been playing a lot of BF3 and GTAIV.

I'm gonna go for higher later once I find that these work ok for a while.

I'm too lazy to read 60+ pages, so can someone tell me the jist of this thread?

Why are 680's such bad overclockers? And why does it throttle over such low temps?

Did Nvidia overclock the hell out of 680s in the factory just so they can beat the 7970 while pretty much killing any overclocking headroom for users?

Will the 780/685 come with the same crappy overclocking scheme??

Was it a lack of VRM similar to the 590? Why does it throttle itself at such low temps?

1) They're not bad overclockers. Most can get at least +200MHz off the base clock of 1006MHz, which in prior generations would have been considered pretty damn good. Some people just like to make asinine assumptions based on how big the (totally irrelevant) "offset" number is, or that OCs should always be judged on a "percentage" basis regardless of the fact that it has such a high stock clock. However I didn't see those same people declaring my 607MHz->875MHz GTX470 a world killer when it got nearly +50% on air. rolleyes.gif

2) They throttle a whopping 13MHz at 70'C, and another 13MHz at 80'C. It increases stability, and grants you higher clocks/better performance than would normally be attainable. Instead of crashing at a borderline-stable OC when your temperature raises, you'll now continue unphased at stable settings.

3) Boost isn't going anywhere, nor should it. The results speak for themselves.

This thread clearly shows that the 680 has OC issues. Now it may not be the worst card to OC, but issues are clearly there. Not sure what Celeras is talking about rolleyes.gif - can't form an opinion based only on his card. This thread is a better representation of the OC capabilities since it has many users trying to OC the card.

The evidence is clearly there that this was the mid-range card but once the 7970 underperformed Nvidia OCed the 680 to compete (beat) with the 7970. The whole design of the card is based on a mid-range schematic so there are mid range limitations; like the VRM, OC issues, already coming OCed from the factory. There is some evidence that the GK110 will not have these issues because it will use the more powerful high end design. I would wait for that card but only because I don't like paying high end price for what was originally a mid range product. Also, I have a SLI 580 set up so it would be a huge downgrade to go to a single 680.
