Don't overclock too far, as it might cause physical/permanent damage to your card. You don't want your GTX 670 to be damaged after that adventure with the HD7950! smile.gif
I don't think its possible to damage a card that you can't overvolt.

can someone riddle me this:

I have 3 x 24" 1080p monitors, 1 via DVI-D - 1 via DVI-I - 1 via HDMI, and when I put them into NV Surround mode it puts me into a 5040x1050 resolution instead of 5760x1080. When I go to set 5760x1080 as a custom resolution it says the test failed since one of my monitors is not supported...even though each monitor is 1080p and the 670 can handle it as 5760x1080 in extended display mode.

2 monitors are the same make and model while one is not.

That's your problem. They NEED to be the same make + model.

I'm not so sure this is true. Don't have any info to back that up but I have seen others run with mismatched monitors. Not sure why that would matter.

oh, well that's a damn shame now isn't it! coming from using an AMD card where they didn't have to be the same (just one had to be using displayport) it worked fine with the current config.

but oh well, i guess it's back to extended display mode for me then!

if AMD let me do it then i don't see why not on NVIDIA. while the monitors maybe mismatched by brand they're still 24" and display at 1080p so i don't see why such an artificial limitation has been implemented if it were true.

How am I using 2 that are the same and 1 that is different in surround then?

So, got my card. Apart from that famous Gigabyte blue PCB, what a lovely (and heavy) piece of equipment it is. Some overclock details from my first play around with it:

Max Boost Clock: 1144Mhz
Kepler Boost: 91Mhz
Maximum Boost: 1235Mhz
Max Memory: 1802Mhz (could push this a little further)
Fan Speed: 50%
Temp: 50C

I knew that my case would allow superior cooling potential than what was being reported in reviews and boy was I right. My card, even on a perfectly acceptable fan speed of 50% barely cracked 50C while running at its maximum clock speed of 1237Mhz. Overall, my card doesn't overclock super high, but it managed to beat my max OC on the 7950 which, clock for clock, would not be as powerful as the 670, and certainly nowhere near as cool. A great result.

See if there's a way to prevent ForceWare from reading the EDID information on the monitors. Maybe that might help.

Hey guys, just a quick question. I have run a few benches on various games/programs, and although 3DMark11 gives me a great P score of 9750, and Graphics score of 10,450, just about all other benches fall below the frames/score I was getting with my Sapphire 7950 OC. This is including the fact that not only is the GTX 670 a superior card, but also that my new 670 is actually clocked higher than my old 7950 when running the same benches. Max stable OC on the 7950 was 1200 core and 1700 memory, while on my 670 it manages 1235 and 1750 easily while barely hitting 50C. Something doesn't seem to add up. I also reset all the settings in the Nvidia control panel to default and ran the benches. The scores are similar, but I figured that with a higher clock, I would easily break the old scores that I had set with the AMD card. I am running the latest Nvidia beta drivers, I'm wondering if returning to the WHQL release might change something.

I am new to Nvidia cards, and would love anyone's input on what settings I should be using when running any benchmarks. Something like PhysX I am sure would interfere with scores if not properly set before you start benching. Upgrading to a 670 from a 7950 (wanted to change teams) does not feel like much of an upgrade when the only bench that performs better than my old card is 3DMark11.

Thanks for any info anyone is able to provide. For reference, I am running the Gigabyte OC 670

I don't know where you got the impression that clock for clock Kepler is somehow better than Tahiti. If you look at benchmarks at similar clocks you will see they perform similarly, as you have found out first hand.
