So what would the disadvantage be to leaving the power target and voltage sliders at maximum?

some people have had crashes with voltage slider left at max and crashes went away after dropping it down. no clue why or who it was. they posted in this thread though.
other than that, there really isnt any disadvantages and totally as far as anyone knows. i dont know of any reported problems since the cards were released.

Can anyone with an EVGA GTX 670 FTW tell me if these numbers make any sense?

I tried three different cards in two machines and the best of them was able to take +50, and +650 in Precision X. The max numbers in the Precision monitor were 1215 for GPU clock and 3758 for memory clock. The cards also would go up to 130% power which seems high.

The best they could do was 51 to 52 fps in Heaven 3.0 with max settings at 1080p. Are any of these numbers somewhat normal?

The only thing I can think of is there are a lot of poor EVGA FTW cards out there, and that is why they are on sale: $349 with rebate.

The power target should be left on max. The card won't draw more power regardless of this setting, it only controls throttling. Some games might require more power than the ones you were testing on.

The 670 are some of the best (if not the best) clocking cards.

Which 670? If you are referring to EVGA 670 FTW, I think I just showed that they are not good at overclocking now.

the gigabyte windforce3 were the best overclockers at 1 time. quite a few people getting 1300 or more. they no longer clock as well as they used to. mine only does 1241mhz max...

I've browsed this thread multiple times since I got my 670 back in June of 2012, but I never really saw anyone post results for a "670 Shorty" (EVGA 670 with small PCB as I like to put it). Just wondering what kind of overclocks they were able to get.

My GTX 670 OC settings with Heaven 3.0 make Heaven 4.0 crash!

Is this normal? The new heaven seems either useless because I have to use lower OC settings to run it.

I was able to run Heaven 3.0 @ 1242/7200 and BF3 @ 1242/6800.

Now I can only run Heaven 4.0 @ 1202/6000. My BF3 profile of 1242/6800 causes crash.

My score is 868.... I'm using 1920x1080 with everything maxxed out unlike the noobs using lower resolutions. Is my score normal? I had to set memory clock to default (6000) and 1202 core.

Sorry, the FTW cards yes. Those are the only binned chips. You must have been unlucky
