With precision-X? The log is saved to C:\Program Files (x86)\EVGA Precision X\HardwareMonitoring.hml

To view that, you can use any word processor (wordpad, notepad, etc) or you can use RivaTuner's HML file viewer to view it in graphical form rather than straight text.

Alright. So after spending about 9 solid hours messing around with my 670, I've managed +6 on the clock offset (max boost of 1286) and +521 on the memory offset. However, I'm still not able to break 50 fps, so I'm guessing the only thing keeping me from it is my processor. Anyways, here are some pictures of GPU-Z, etc.

Hopefully I'm able to improve my scores once I get an i5 3570k. My fx-8150 is just lacking. I tried increasing my overclock, but it absolutely refuses to go higher than 4.7ghz, and even though that is stable for me, it's still obscenely hot and I don't feel safe with it. Oh well.

700My latest OC, loving this card!

+45 boost (1325mhz)
+450 on the memory
temps never above 70 with a little over 1:1 fan curve!

So far completely stable and no artifacts. Can't wait to see how far I can push it.

Everything looks fine to me. The only thing i can suggest is try dropping your memory by about 60 offset and see if your score improves. Your memory might be unstable but not showing artifacts and that could be lowering your score. It's unlikely though, and i'm sure you've tried that already anyways wink.gif. You're really only about 1-1.5 fps away from where you should be, and there's a lot of things that aren't related to your GPU that could account for that.

You could also try restarting your computer, open up Heaven and let it run a complete circuit, after that then run the actual bench test. Heaven can be wonky at times, i had a test where i got 49FPS at stock settings on my 670, reran it again and got 44 (where it should be). There's also times where i get ~30fps every run and have to restart my computer to break 50FPS again.

I tested my Asus TOP with a boost clock of 1265Mhz and I still get less FPS than my Gigabyte at 1245Mhz for some reason, that is with same memory clocks. My Asus scored 47.8 fps in heaven while the gigabyte with less boost scored 49.7 fps. I tested both cards with same setup multiple times running heaven continuously in the same PCI lane, same fan curves and max temp was just about 62C for both cards. I also restarted the PC several times, still same scores. If I try to overclock the Asus more, it crashes rolleyes.gif

Every card is different. I kick my 680's ass with this card with clock speeds but my 680 still score 100 higher in heaven and 1000 more in 3dmark11. I know they are different card but my core clock was 10mhz higher and memory was 40mhz higher and I can't get close to my 680.

People are getting confused by this made-up "kepler boost" term.

There is no kepler boost. There is only a base clock and a boost clock.

The base clock is the minimum speed at which the GPU will run.

The boost clock is the average speed above the base clock the GPU will run while under load.

The speed over the base clock varies depending on TDP, the speed over the base clock can go beyond the boost clock or below the boost clock. But, what nvidia is guaranteeing is that the AVERAGE speed over the base clock will be the boost clock.

Some background reading regarding boost clock:

Can you please stop spreading false information. None of the people in those links you provided really know what they're talking about. Those were preliminary reviews of the new Kepler GPU's and no one really had any idea what was going on back then. I guarantee if you were to email them or post in their forums and ask them their opinion now, they will confirm that their original articles were wrong and they now have a better understanding of how the Kepler-based GPU's work.

Edit: Besides, in all of those articles you can clearly see the Kepler Boost in action. Those reviewers just misinterpreted their data.

so i installed my 670 top and the latest nvidia drivers however im noticing that I'm actually getting less fps in certain games (LoL, cs:go, jc2) then i was with my 5770. any game that is a little more demanding like bf3 and metro 2033 crash outright. i tried to run heaven and that crashed as well during benchmarking. my question is do you think this is a driver issue or should i get my card rma'd?

Do you really think everyone that posted a review on Kepler was incorrect? It doesn't seem likely, but from what I read it seems that everyone else explains base and boost clock the same way. I'm not trying to argue with you but I would like to find out exactly how these clocks function and what the terminology used by Nvidia means as defined by nvidia.
