How to: 680 overclocking fundamentals - Page 7

post #61 of 125
Would you be able to adjust the core clock while benching to see if it would produce any errors? Lets say im running a gpu bench mark, can i increase the core temp while the bench is running or is that not advised?

Absolutely! Just pick a benchmark that can windowed easily, bring up afterburner/precision, and tweak to your hearts content. That's actually a really good way to fine tune your overclock, I do it myself using Unigine 3.0 or eVGA OC scanner (if I'm trying to max out temps). thumb.gif

I'll be getting my EVGA GTX 680 on Thursday -- W00t! My GTX 580 Lightning hovers around 29 C and 55 C load.. (I have my PC is a cold basement) -- I am excited to see what I can do.

Is there any way to flash the BIOS of the normal EVGA GTX 680 to a SC ?

Thanks!

EDIT: Also, I was debating on doing two GTX 570s SLI but I hate dealing with issues, drivers, etc. Is the 680 a wise choice for 2560x1440 gaming?

You can flash the bios, but it really wouldnt accomplish anything you couldn't do yourself (a mild overclock).

^^This^^

Definitely no need to flash the BIOS. Just over clock it. All the SC is a small factory over clock from vanilla.

Thanks for the response --

I have been using AfterBurner for quite a while and really enjoy using that. Can I do the same OC with AB or should I use EVGA Precision from the start?

Any other tips/tricks with the 680 I should play with like adaptive anti-aliasing, etc or is that all just marketing fluff?

It be a good idea to try EVGA Precision X - it works great for GTX 680's.

Adaptive Anti-aliasing is good for 60Hz monitors if your getting tearing during games.

I tried out precision when I got my 680 thinking it was needed or did something special. I had issues with it like saving profiles didn't want to work. I went back to old faithful AB. Plus the new version is finally out of beta and supports these cards.

That's weird, it's working for me.

For some reason AB 2.2.0 is not working properly not showing clocks and not resetting them at least for me. Posted my problems on the AB 2.2.0 thread where others are showing other issues with final release.

So I'm back to Precision X. I used to prefer AB until 680. EVGA has ironed out a great final product with voltage control they used to be lacking prior. I'm good now.

I'm just used to Ab I guess. And I like my profiles. To each is own of course.
