~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 11

post #101 of 3357
Well, I finally finished this entire guide for my 670 FTW.

Final stable clocks for me were +124Mhz Core offset/+385 memory offset.

Not sure if these are good at all, but these were the best stable results I got!

Attached are some pics:

It would be helpful if you told us what your actual overclock is. +124 could mean anything from about 1200MHz to 1400MHz, depending on the individual card wink.gif

What Brett said and to mention cards factory base clocks can vary. So your +124 MHz over clock on the 670 reference 918 MHz Base Core clock would differ to someone else's 967 MHz base core clock like on the EVGA SC version.

It's best to state your actual clocks to be compared. Base / Memory / Boost & Max Core specs if your monitoring the card. I think the most important spec is the max Core dynamic over clock I can achieve to know what the card can truly capable of pulling. smile.gif

Ah my apologies!

Default Boost Clock- 1085MHz
OC'ed Boost Clock- 1280MHz

Kepler Boost- 91MHz

Max Boost- 1300MHz (spikes sometimes)

i have a 670 ftw and im currently working on the oc but it just seems alittle off to me. the max gpu offset i can get to run stable is only +35 and compared to others their getting +125 on avg and yes i have the voltage set at 1.175v. tho on the other hand i can run through heaven bench with a mem offset of +710 with no artifacts. when i go to play skyrim everything becomes all flashy ppl get thrown in the air. you wouldnt think a fresh install of windows would help at all maybe its keeping some info from my 560ti and doesnt want to update it? thanks in advance

I had a quick question following this guide, I went with the short option and in the beginning it has you "temporarily" set the Power Target and Voltage sliders to max. However at least in the short version it doesn't say anything about changing them. Do you leave them at max after you are done?

Yes, leave them at their respective maximums. I'll be sure to fix that part of the guide. Thanks for pointing it out thumb.gif

Oh my god I'm going to start pulling my hair out here pretty quick ...

Offset values like +35 or +125 alone mean NOTHING. +35 on one card could mean 1250MHz and +125 on another card could mean 1240MHz. What is your actual, observed core operating frequency (like the max you see in AB graphs) when running a full load (the PCI-Ex render test in GPU-Z is a great, quick way to generate a full load, btw)?

There's no such thing as 'keeping info from another card' in such a way that your max overclock would end up being less with your new card. Now, Skyrim might have some information 'kept' from your old card that it's not updating, potentially. It might be worth re-installing the game, or at least deleting the config files and letting Skyrim re-generate them. Could also just try starting a fresh game and seeing if the problem still exists.

Question, on one particular run the GPU clock was steady at 1239MHz then a few minutes into it I got an extra 13MHz and sat at 1252MHz for the rest of the run

Here are some pics, it looks stable I guess. At least it's not going down.

611

605

Should I keep pushing up?

the ftw is stock at 1006Mhz with a boost of 1085. my offset was could only go to 35. and im currently working on a fresh install of windows and skyrim so hopefully that would help
