Disappointed with GB GTX 670 overclock

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 

I have a Gigabyte GTX 670 that can only do +60/+150 (1236/3151).

 

Kind of disappointed since most that I have seen reviewers able to get it to around 1300MHz or higher. Is it just me or are the reviewers receiving cherry picked chips? I have seen other normal users with 670s that also can't overclock worth a darn.

Are you also getting only 1.09v like someone else with bad OCing cards in the GB OC thread? Temps?

Just quickly ran Heaven. Voltage is normal at 1.175 and temp was at 53C and slowly climbing.

think the 670 used the gk104 chips that couldn't cut it as a 680, chances are that the card that are able to OC well are the one's that have the chips that just missed the cut for the 680.

you might have gotten one fo those chips that failed badly, but still fit 670 specs.

I guess it's just a bad OCing chip. If your store doesn't mind, could probably roll the die again and hope to get a better OCer if they agree to an exchange.

There are plenty of 680's that can't overclock worth a damn. OC is a plus, not a selling point in the 600 series cards.

Well I could go that route, pay a restocking fee, but Amazon is OOS :/ Only thing I can do now is return it or keep it.

Well, first off, you're falling slightly above dead center on the below chart of 670 OC'ing reviews, and secondly, the difference between what you get and what the highest OC gets, FPS-wise, is likely on the order of 3%. So you get 50fps, the best OC'er gets 53fps. A difference this small is completely invisible to the naked eye.

I understand being disappointed you didn't win the silicon lottery wink.gif but the actual practical ramifications are nil thumb.gif

Silicon lottery has been mostly fair to me. The last time I got a card that overclock this badly was my old GTX 295. That was more than 20 cards ago...
