jake, your card is a good clocker. those over 1300 cards are excellent cards. anything over 1200 is good. newer cards dont seem to be clocking as high either.

My EVGA FTW edition only gets +80 mhz on GPU and +100 mhz on Memory at max scaling voltage. Since I really don't want to mod this card's bios, though I may try it someday when I'm not as attached, I assume I should just accept that it's a lottery and deal eh?

Bleh and I was going to put this puppy under water. Eh, probably still will for the noise.

You shouldnt be scared of flashing the BIOS. Ive done that about 10 times already trying 4 different BIOSes with my Gigabyte but since i didnt have any luck with the modded BIOS and the card run pretty much the same clocks ive just updated to the latest one released by Gigabyte that supposedly fixes some bugs in the earlier BIOS.

One of my 670 FTWs clocks like a dream, I can run it at 1280 no problem with over +300 on the mem, only problem is my top card will only do about 1241 with about +230 on the mem, and then it starts acting up if my temps hit about 40c. Thankfully I usually run 29-30c at load.

I clock both cards the same though, and leave them at a clock that sits very steady with no oscillation at 1241. This completely prevents any micro stutter and let's me play Borderlands 2 on max settings 6080x1200 at 80-90fps, and Battlefield 3 on High about 70-80fps at 6080x1200.

I think my card is a bit of a dud. Well, it does what the box says and more, so I can't be too disappointed. But damn, I'm seeing lots of other people getting boosts of 1,200 - 1,300MHz.
The highest I can get to is 1050 which puts my max boost clock at 1150. Memory can't go very high, either, though I haven't played with it as much. I've got it 3204 and I don't think it goes much higher.

I can easily keep it under 70°c and have power limit set to 122% (though it refuses to go over ~106%).

I've got the ASUS DCU II version. Maybe I should have payed a bit more for the "OC" version.

Am I doing something wrong, or did I just have bad luck with the new nVidia overclocking lottery that we now have to deal with?

June or July last year. Is there any point in raising the voltage slider, I thought the voltage was locked?


I may try flashing a new BIOS onto it.

raising the voltage slider keeps the voltage from dropping when it goes to a light load. if going from a light load to heavy/full load, its possible for the card to not respond fast enough to keep the voltage at a needed amount causing a driver crash/black screen.
