retailers need to start checking to make see if things work before returning the payment. change policies so that you cant return something that works. it costs everyone money in the end.

In Denmark, manufactures MUST accept it, when people return stuff within the first 30 days. People abuse this, and it makes me sick. I can only agree with what you said!

Thanks for the great post. Quick question though. Do you leave your voltage and power target at maximum all the time once your done finding your OC max? Or do you just turn them on while gaming?

Apologies if this has been answered before but i couldnt see the answer smile.gif

Thanks in advance.thumb.gif
post #1216 of 3357
yep. leave em both at max. causes no problems at all except maybe a few degrees of heat in your case

Thanks for the quick reply. Just about finished oc my zotac gtx 670 amp! cant wait to start playing!!

anyone have a problem where you oc your card but in bf3 will just crash all of a sudden? I get the error that your display drivers recovered from the fatal error.
post #1219 of 3357
BF3 has issues with overclocks. It has been discussed before. I don't know why but it hates overclocked GPU's

Hey, I tried to do some overclocking on my Asus GTX 670 DCII non-TOP, and it was going well for a while, but at a point I started getting flickering shadows and semi transparent white bars appearing while running heaven. I tried to down clock it, but the weird things were still there, so I went back to stock. I, however, still get these things every now and again in some of my games.

The games are still far from unplayable, but should I be worried about this?
