That about describes how Neverwinter works except for the dots.

I thought as much. I suppose I should turn on some skyrim to troubleshoot.

It really isn't odd that I can potentially do 160/600+ offsets? I just don't see numbers that high without being followed by others criticizing for certain choices (ie "I see all this crazy stuff in BF3, my oc is 180/800, it's never been unstable before!" Followed by people stating "uh, duh.")

I suppose a lot of people have ftw or top editions, so their numbers would be lower when talking offset and not max boost. Maybe that's where this question comes from.

So basically as long as I'm not crashing, overheating, or seeing artifacts, it is a stable oc that doesn't risk cutting short the lifespan of the card? I do love upgrading but I'm not rich so an upgrade is a big thing for me, meaning I want this card to last.

If everything else is okay but there are minor, tolerable artifacts, is it okay to run it like that if as a personal preference if you don't mind it, or do artifacts actually mean utter instability that is potentially contributing to card killing? Or is it just something that looks bad so you don't want it in your oc? Just wondering if I can balance better performance against a blip or two and some textures being ridiculous. It is very unlikely I would tolerate any artifacts anyway, so it is NOT my plan to do so, I'm more asking the mechanics of it.

Again, thanks for all the help and replies so far people.

There is a rendering artifact/glitch with the heaven benchmark right about the time where the screen rotates around the dragon statue.. I've seen that way back in previous versions and all nvidia cards I've tested.. even on video runs on youtube so take a look at that.

Yup I noticed that and spent over an hour adjusting offsets to try to get rid of it since the only mention of it I read at the time was a youtube video mentioning it as a 'problem' and asking how to get rid of it. After looking into it and realizing the answer was "it always does that even in their promotional video" I kicked myself.

Idk why it never occurred to me to set it back to stock and run it and see if it was still there. Pretty much assumed "okay, this has got to be it... Nope, damn. Okay, THIS... Sigh." Haha

Yes, as long as you see black flashing artifacts on the Dragon scene (stage 10 specifically) then you still know that your card is stable.

Hey guys.

I bought a Gigabyte GTX 670 OC 2GB Windforce 3x. It has been fantastic card so far. By far one of the best cooled cards and over clocking I have had since my Radeon HD 5770 1gb sapphire.

I'm curious to know if this is a good score:


Heaven 3.0 with guide settings max. I got to 1386 with +125 core, +400 mem. Giving my card 1184mhz core boost and 1702mhz mem and never above 60c temp.


From reading a few pages most can't make it past the 1200s. I managed to get there after many trial and errors. I get a very very slight white flicker every once in a while but as far as I can tell it didn't make a different.

I've always seen it flash even if the OC is unstable, what do you mean ?

Are scores in heaven 3.0 typically higher than 4? Because I only get 1049 with my max oc like I said ... In version 4.

My 3Dmark 2011 is also 8700-8900 or so as well. It was 7700 at stock too. Running 4ghz oc i7 930. I was wondering how ppl obtained 1000+, though with my setup only 70 or so people have that score.

Am I supposed to be this low? I can't really find a definitive answer since I've seen so much variance among other people too, and I'm not sure if the person posted is a crazy overclocked everything modded bios etc... If most of them are only a simple oc like me then I'm a bit scared of my score.

My GTX 670 is not going as strong ever since I reformatted my computer and I don't know why. I have my EVGA GTX 670 1GB, an i5 3570k, etc etc. In EVGA Precision X, I can't get either the GPU offset clock or the mem clock above 25. For reference, before reformatting my offset clock was 145 and my mem clock was 200. I get a score of literally like 880 in Heaven DX11 with all settings maxed out at 1920x1080 and I have no idea why. I've tried reinstalling my nvidia drivers, the precision program, etc.

Any of you guys have answers?

What I mean is the black artifacts are there even if your OC is stable or unstable. So if you're looking for stability and you saw no artifacts except for those black flashes, then you know you are stable.
