did anyone try disabling the gpu boost? Do you recommend it?

interesting. i probably would just leave it on if you're not confident in making that change nor are you seeing any benefit to it being off at all....unless you think using more power and making more noise is somehow beneficial!

Well, i just assumed people would leave it running as that's what you have to do for the overclock to apply as well. I will add a little more information tomorrow on it though. Thanks for pointing that out biggrin.gif

Thanks Sean!

I will try what you said as soon as I am done with the stress testing run I am on now.

I had no idea I had to have PrecisionX running tongue.gif, yep, I'm a noob lol

Sorry but my english is very bad...
Why my max TDP is so slow? i can not get more than that 78.7%...in unignine or 3dmark or any game, only with furmark i get 100% tdp, so what is the problem??

Gigabyte OC WF
1128 Boost Clock
1257.6 Max Boost
1739.6 Memory
78.7% Power Target with 1.175 Voltage slider

That's pretty normal for the Gigabyte cards because it uses an 8+6 pin power connector instead of the 6+6 all other GTX 670's use. Since the 8+6 pin cards have a higher maximum power draw, yet use the same amount of power as the 6+6 cards, their power percent is always going to be much lower (since it's percent based, that doesn't mean it's actually using less power). You shouldn't concern yourself with the power percent on the gigabyte card unless if it's over ~90% (then you might start to get power-based throttle). Because you aren't seeing any throttling (based on the graphs you posted), the power percent isn't currently limiting your overclock in any way. So if you're unstable at higher clocks it's because of the voltage. Since the voltage can't be increased over 1.175v, there's no way to overclock any higher.

The gigabyte cards use an 8+6 PCIe power connectors. All other 670s so far are 6+6. The GB is already using more power.

Yes, sorry, that's what i meant tongue.gif

My point still stands
post #247 of 3357
Lots of thanks for the answer, i saw in most forums that gigabyte cards reach 100%+ TDP, thats because i was worried about it.
I have 129 Kepler boost so i expecte a little more OC...so i think i get a normal one jeje

Really nice post by the way smile.gif

Thanks.
That sounds like a memory leak (or fragmented memory) or something similar. Which I've never seen happen in the context of Heaven. Have you tried restarting your computer? What is your GPU memory usage at when you run heaven? Have you ever used MemTest86+ to test your RAM? What happens if you run the card at default clocks, are your scores higher and constant/stable when you do consecutive runs at default clocks?

Here are one of my many results:

11u7zog.jpg

I ran Memtest86+ and here what results are:

Walltime = 1:28:00
Cached = 8154M
RsvdMem = 2828K
MemMap = e820
Cache = on
ECC = off
Test = std
Pass = 1
Errors = 237
ECC Errs = 0

Tst = 2
Pass = 0
Failing Address = 0017fb0603c - 6139.0MB
Good = ffffffff
Bad = fffffbff
Err-Bits = 00000400
Count = 1

RAM must be the problem? I need to get them replaced?

Yeah, your RAM is probably currently the problem -- you should be getting zero errors in MemTest86. But you might not have to replace them, you might just have unstable settings in the bios. What RAM do you have? Have you set the voltage and timing in the bios to the factory settings? If so, you might be able to downclock your RAM to make it stable/error-free (though if the RAM is bad, then that won't help either).

Has anyone tried the new .48 beta drivers to see if they improve performance.

My Card is currently maxing @1320 boost stable but I'm not getting the results in heaven that everone else is getting. My max FPS dont get high enough.

My card runs a 1.175 volts constantly even if I dont adjust the slider. My Tdp ranges from 64 to 75% under full load. My memory will only go 170 stable in unengine but I can play games a 200 just fine with no issues.
