~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 234

post #2331 of 3357
Quick question.

I plan on updating to Windows 8 this weekend. Will I need to retest my overclock settings or am I good to go with my current settings?

Ok so what about your fan speed of 75%? Like I said, raise it if you can. It's obviously not enough as you're clicking 80 degrees, at least that's what your graph shows = throttling. Throw in the fact you're exceeding the power target = more throttling (especially if it actually pull more than 1.1.75v when you change it.

Even if I put it on 80% it's the same and it's the maximum I can set it to. It's when I'm using the power limit in 122% and not even changing the voltage, keeping it normal. What else should I do? should I just not overclock? because I got 80 degrees within 60% fan speed back then...

Ok so I think you may have a problem then, cause not known of course.

Do you have enough air-flow in the case or is something blocking the card, 80 degrees at that speed especially with fan cranked up sounds wrong.

Another option is to open it up, remove the stock paste and do it yourself - 99% guaranteed to give you better results. Last but not least, ask other MSI owners of your card or go to the forum if this is normal (I doubt it). ie: RMA for replacement card.

Hi all,

So I got my second card, and installed it by itself to see how it clocks. It seems to OC about the same as the first, but It does not seem to break 1.1620v, while the other does the full 1.175v. Has anyone else experienced this? Any way to bump it up to 1.175?

Thanks in advance!

post #2337 of 3357
I noticed something odd today, my bottom card which runs always 2-3c hotter ( due to my sound card covering a small portion of the intake ) is now running about 2-3 cooler BUT the clocks on it will move between 1189 to 1215 even if the temps are merely 60c. Im not sure whats wrong frown.gif

Heaven 4.0 has no Extreme HD preset, only the Extreme preset, which uses 1600x900.

Hmm that makes sense. So then my previous screenshot with my score of 880 IS comparable as its set to the same standards as "Extreme HD". If this is the case then why cant I get my scores higher then that. My card never goes over 69 degrees so i dont think thermal throttling would play a part in this. Can I get some input please.

Play with the +MHz setting in PrecisionX. I know it sounds strange but set something like +100, apply, +101, apply, +100, apply and test. Also, set the voltage slider (assuming stock BIOS) as high as it will go. The boost works on multiples of 13, so I typically aim for the lowest +MHz setting I can get the boost I want out of. Your best clocks will be those that don't oscillate, but stay rock steady at max boost. If its oscillating it could mean a bad or less than perfect OC.

See above. Oscillating frequencies can have an effect find the most stable clock you can get, then stick with that. I have 2 670s and if I remember correctly I score in the 1100's at 5760x1200 (desktop resolution). The scores are only comparable when all things are equal, ie same settings, etc. Run the bench at stock settings 2 or 3 times, then follow the Quick 30 minute guide and see what sort of score changes you get WITHOUT changing the bench settings.

I own a Gigabyte GTX 670 OC, can't seem to get the GPU Clock past 110 Mhz, any ideas based on the graphs?

Crashes in Heaven



Hraven set at 3560*1440, 8X and Ultra

110 Mhz score was 1086
