GTX 680 Questions!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It's been a weeks since I've had my EVGA GTX 680 SC. I recently mounted a waterblock to it. I overclocked it so far to 1275 MHZ with +250 mhz memory OC on top of what is already been OC from the SC. (Which I don't know how much that is.) Here are my questions.

When I mounted the waterblock, and tried stress testing it. I noticed my Default Clock dropped by 12mhz . When I was on air cooling I was at 1175 MHZ default. Now its 1163. When I run benchmarks it stays at 1163. Never goes above. I Did notice, while playing crysis 1 it would go randomly form 1163-1175. Sometimes it would stay there for a minute or two then drop back down. Does anyone know why this is?

My second question is, while playing Crysis 1, in the menu screen, I hear this electricity or something (IDK what exactly) whirrup, then it goes off when I alt tab to something else. I know its coming from the graphics card. I know its not the waterblock or pump, or air bleeding out of my loop. It sounds like electricity. IDK if that makes sense or not. Is this something I should be concerned about?

My third question. Why aren't my settings being saved on Afterburner or Precision X when I OC? I have it set to 1275 mhz with +250 MHZ memory OC. But when I reboot my pc. It goes back to default clocks settings, and I have to click default, then re-apply the settings. Why is this?

I was thinking the lower clock and coil whine like problem could be caused by VRM temps, but I guess that's a full waterblock so that would be cooling them just fine. I can help you with Precision though, that problem was well known in this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1242237/evga-precision-x/10#post_16974945, going by the EVGA rep it is now fixed, you just have to re-download and re-install.

Yes. It's the EK Nickel Full Waterblock. My temps sit at 29/30c idle and never go above 40c. I noticed a HUGE drop rate in temps. It was at 74-78 on air. The temps practically dropped by almost half.
