Managed to get around 1500 on Unigine consistently last week which I was happy with.
GPU offset 155
mem:400
The really strange this is I have just run the test again with the exact same setting and I am not getting far worse performance. Resulting in 1100 score in Unigine. I have the exact same settings, same driver and same overclock but now get far worse results.
My core clock speed is still hitting the same mark after boost which is1279 Mhz.but the score is no near so good
Anyone got any ideas why my score is now much worse? I hope I didn't damage the card in any way ... THanks for any input here ...

Okay so you're saying that you're boost clock is at 1345 when you opened it out of the box? I call BS!

So the reason his scores are low, is he must of not had something turned on or up the first time he ran it.

Sorry if my post wasn't so clear. Wrote it on my phone in a bit of a hurry.

I am NOT expecting a score of 1500 with stock clocks (this would be a pretty amazing card from the factory, right?) but after overclocking last week hitting around 1280 MHz after the overclock I consistently got scores of 1500 - 1540 on Unigine. At default clock speeds I was getting a score of around 1100 or something like that. I checked my results again last night and I had almost all on max (including tess.) except AA which was set to 4x. i can't remember the res but I reckon it was 1080.

When I get home this evening I'll post the result as I saved them locally on the PC. The strange thing is, now I am getting lower results around the 1250 mark (which, admittedly is also pretty damned fine!) but obviously I want to hit that high score again if I can. Maybe it is some setting that I have that makes my score incomparable to the others listed here. Acttually, it starts to sound like the strange was that I got that score in the first place!

bad lingo on my part, I guess. By "core clock" I meant the speed at which the clock is running after the OC NOT before.

A couple settings not maxed will make a huge difference on this bench. Use the setting in the Top 30 thread to keep things consistent.

Will check the settings I had on the first runs and post them here and then run again using the Top 30 settings and we will see what is what!

Don't mess around with the Voltage. This card will auto go to max Volts when it needs it... Some cards will not manage the amount of offset you have tried either.
