I had just read a thread somewhere stating that 12.2 was stable and 12.4 not so much.Installed 12.4 last night and the card is working fine now.Thanks for your help.

I updated bios to 1.40 using the instant flash in uefi.Is this the preferred method of flashing bios?Thought I'd check before going to 1.70.

Guys - Are we 100% sure "Auto" in LLC Load Line is the same as "Level 5" ??

I thought I read that..and have been doing a lot of testing based on that assumption....if "Auto" does not equal "Level 5" - please let me know...

Thanks.

I'm having the same problem as the poster above. I can only select a mutiplier value up to 38 in the uefi, but in CPU-Z under load it only shows up 36. For some reason I can't go past this, although I have been testing at 4.7.

I've posted a separate thread on this but was digging around and saw this post. Couldn't see if a resolution had been found. I'm on BIOS 1.7.

Which is better:

- Higher offset and level 5-4

- Lower offset and level 2-3


sry for newbie question :]

I had that question to..but if I had to guess...I would say lower offset with higher level. At least that is what i have been shooting for...mainly because I feel it's easier/faster to test.

BTW I found this nice guide on Offset: http://forum.overclock3d.net/index.php?/topic/39090-offset-mode-overclocking-starter-guide-and-thread/

No.

You want to use LLC to get close to your voltage setting. If you use a lower voltage with LLC 1, you're going to get voltage spikes. You want to deliver consistent voltage to your chip at load, not fluctuating higher/lower voltage spikes.

If your voltage once offset is 1.240v, but you use LLC 1, and it spikes to 1.290, that's not a good overclock. It might be stable, but you want to try and get it as close to 1.240 at load as you can. If LLC 3 is giving your BSODs, you should increase your voltage slightly before trying to use LLC 1 instead.

That said, LLC 2 and 3 are usually fine. But you should still load your CPU and monitor voltages with CPU-Z or CPUID and play with your settings to prevent your voltages drooping or jumping too much.

FYI - When I said "higher LLC"...I meant like Level 4 or 5...not LLC1. LLC 4/5 + minimum (+) offset > LLC 1/2 + big (-) offset. Am not sure if we agree or disagree on this...

If you truly want consistent voltage..why not just use fixed mode.
