You should probably continue to use Heaven 4.0 and turn your overclock down so you are stable. Although Valley is nice also.

I thought Valley and Heaven 4.0 uses the same exact engine? In my case, the max temp I get for both programs is roughly the same.

Valley is nice but let's you run higher clocks than Heaven, for me it was even 2 jumps difference. For Heaven I can run 1228mhz and for Valley 1254mhz. Haven crashed at anything more than 1228mhz.

I found Heaven 4 to be most demanding and crash vurnerable so I test with it. I never experienced stable in Heaven 4 and crash in games. When Haven 4 is stable for me, games will be too.

Corrected Heaven ;d

Fair enough, but my point was more that the solution to crashing in Heaven 4.0 is not to stop using it to test the cards, but to fix the instability instead.

I never said to stop using Heaven 4, I still use it (second part of my last post) as it is most demanding ie good for stability testing. Personally I wouldn't recommend dropping tool because it's more demanding...

Well then I guess I'm going to have to lower my core offset considerably. It's like they injected Heaven with steroids for 4.0.

I think Forceman wasn't referring to you regarding stopping using Heaven.

You're right, I was referring to Jinto's post. Sorry xonare - I didn't realize it could be read that way (my intent was clear in my mind smile.gif).

Kinda, it's machine killer. I got 38.5 fps in Heaven with maxed out OC on my card. I don't know what I'd have to do to get higher, probably SLI the 670.
