~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 13

post #121 of 3357
Just bought my Gigabyte GTX670 today. Updated to latest drivers from nvidia.

I installed my drivers and then played one round of Diablo 3 after which I opened the NVIDIA Control Panel and then it immediately went into a blank red screen. I forcefully rebooted the computer and chose to boot normally after which it BSODed mentioning a graphics problem and then rebooted a second time.

Not sure if this helps:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 18441

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 116
BCP1: FFFFFA800B797010
BCP2: FFFFF8800F5D24D4
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: 0000000000000002
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

Now I'm getting constant error messages along the lines of NVIDIA drivers have crashed and recovered.

I've run Heaven DX11 to stress test it and it went to 70C without freezing (I've been getting green artifacts in Heaven DX11), however the moment I closed and opened Firefox my system froze. My system has frozen twice so far. I've set my power target to 112% and my voltage to 1.175 but it's not helping.

I'm running:

Gigabyte 670 Windforce
Boost: 1120 MHz
Max Boost: 1237 MHz
Mem clock: 1502 MHz
112% Power Target 1175 mV

Thoraine, I'm confused ... it sounds like you had unresolved issues, but then decided to overclock anyways (1120 is not stock boost on the GB)?

How are things doing if you leave the card at stock at this point?

So it's been at least 4 years since I have touched voltage on any video card and I absolutely love this guide. Is it safe to jack the voltage up to max and leave it that way forever? I remember reading about adjusting the max Power % to whatever the highest was in Precision X but as for the voltage we just leave it at max?

Hello, Thanks for replying. yeah they aren't the stock boost clocks for the GB board. I reset them to the default 1059MHZ boost clock and still get driver crashes and green artifacts when running heaven dx11. What should I do? I have tried cleanly removing the drivers and reinstalling.

Sort of sounds like an unstable stock card. I'd consider RMA'ing that card.

I've been following the guide and when I increased the gpu clock a second time I got the below crash.

Is that the error that shows up when you've overclocked too high? Is there anything that I can tweak to make it possibly work? Voltage and power are already maxed out. Or at this point is the only option bringing down the clock? Thanks.

What hurts is the monitor graphs look so good right up until it crashed. frown.gif

Is "D3D10 App window::swap_window():Device removed." the error that you guys got when overclocking too high? And if not, what does that error mean?

If I follow the long version guide, does it work with 2x 670s in SLI?
post #128 of 3357
So, i've got a Asus GTX670 DirectCU II.. Not TOP, just stock speeds.

Heaven is able to pass a run fine at and a little over +200MHz offset (and I have ~130MHz Kepler Boost), but during a second run through directly after it would crash. Fair enough, wasn't totally stable. So I went down to 195 offset, and it passed two runs. I thought "sweet", and started raising it by 1MHz testing two runs each time. Long story short, I got to 199MHz before it crashed. then on 198 I tried for a third consecutive run (by 'consecutive run' I just mean starting another benchmark as soon as one finishes), and it crashed. Even longer story short, i'm now on 185 offset (1165 boost + ~130 Kepler Boost, it sits stable at 1296MHz according to the chart), and let Heaven run continuously for about 20-30 minutes (not benchmarking, just running through) and it was fine. Sat at about 62 degrees the whole time.

Anyway, what I eventually wanted to get to, was to suggest that you recommend people let Heaven run two or 3 times through once they think they've found their maximum stable clock - just to be sure.

I wish these cards wouldnt throttle at only 70 degrees. Thats too soon and limits the OC. AFAIK 70 degrees is perfectly safe. I put in hundreds of hours on my GTX 460's at 80 degrees without a problem.
post #130 of 3357
So is everyone using precision x for these cards? I like the ui much more in afterburner. Is pinning the voltage that critical to getting a good overclock?
