~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 246

post #2451 of 3357
Anyone here good at making a bios setting using the Kepler Bios Tweaker? Id like to setup a profile that will not throttle even if I hit past 70c and will always run at 1228Mhz unless the card is idle. I've managed to make a setting that does what I need above but the voltages are always at 1.212v and I would need it to stay only at 1.200v and Im not sure how to change the power settings as well.

Does the 189% power usage get reported as a spike that coincides with the gpu crash? If so, probably just a bad sample taken at the time of the crash. I've seen spikes of ~300% in precX when my card has crashed in failed overclocking efforts, its not really using that much power... just bad samples.

So Ive been running the mem with no offsets and I no longer have issues with Dota 2.. Strange I never had issues with it before even when I used +400, probably one of the several mem chips could no longer OC? The cards are just 2 months old XD

I'm glad that you found a way to run Dota2 reliably, but it sucks that your card isn't performing like it used to.

I don't know about how ICs degrade over time exactly but i've read that higher voltages and temps can cause chips to 'wear out' faster. I wonder if you you're new chips got accelerated aging so to speak due to high temps or voltages? Are you running with a modded BIOS that lets you up voltages or did you run with the 'voltage tuner' in precX cranked all the way up?

Im running with a voltage unlocker, this is the first time though I've had something degrade on me if it actually did.. the only weird thing is that dota 2 seems to be the only game affected. My core speed is still running at 1228Mhz pretty fine even on Heaven 4.0

I've made sure that my GPU is running at less than 70c all the time, I guess its tough luck.

I dont know why but i just get my OC stable. It runs heaven, yeah ok. I can play BF for about 40 minutes and then it crashes at some point. Im doing ultra on everything with stable fps. In addition,. my card isnt even overclock alot, its just a little overclock. Im at the point of giving up my overclocking, its so flustrating...
post #2456 of 3357
just finished the first part (finding stable core and mem clocks - moving onto fan profiles, then gaming)

I ended up with:
GPU Clock - 1078MHz --- Memory - 1802MHz --- Boost - 1156MHz

MSi GTX 670 Power Edition, stock cooler, stock bios, ThermalTake Level 10 GT case

314.2x drivers sadly because Skyrim ENB is very bugged on later driver versions frown.gif

I guess I did ok. haven't been into PC's since the 2000's - this is all so different these days redface.gif
post #2457 of 3357
Need some clarification/help.

Reference EVGA GTX 670 SLI
HAF 922 (I'll explain the fan setup later)

Okay, so I got my offset to +95mhz, memory is still +0. My boost clock is 1075mhz for both cards according to GPU-Z.

Okay, so I'm breaking 70 C slightly, up to 72 C on GPU 1 and 74 C on GPU 2.

I have 3 200mm fans. One as an intake from the front, one from the side blowing onto the cards. The last is exhaust on top. I have a 120mm exhaust in back. And, I have 2 CPU fans in push/pull pointed at the rear 120mm exhaust fan. I could probably get it under 70 C if I swapped out the side 200m fan for 2 140mm's, and added an intake 140mm on the bottom of the case.

So I wanted to ask.

Why is (according to perf log in Precision X) GPU 1 running at a stable 1228mhz (-13mhz from the throttle) and GPU 2 at 1189mhz (-13mhz from the throttle)? Is it because their Kepler boosts are different between the cards? Does one card running at a lower stable speed limit the other card to that speed?

Another weird thing. GPU 1 only experienced 1 throttle of 13mhz (from 1228 to 1215). GPU 2, however, experienced 4 different speeds. The first, and the "stable" speed was 1189mhz, where it stayed about 95% of the time during stress. But when GPU 2 got throttled after 70 C, it oscillated between 1176, 1163, and 1150, even though GPU 2 only went up to 74 C. Normal? Keep in mind this is hardly visible in the graph I'm posting, but it occurs where it looks like the graph has 'shark teeth'. (GPU 2)

Also, hypothetically, if I just stick with this fan setup right now, would it be worth it to down clock to get me to a stable 70 C at this current fan setup? I don't expect my temps to fall below 70 C by removing 12mhz from my offset (gut feeling, but I'm still gonna try it). Anyway, how many people have overlocked and live with 70+ C temps for the sake of a higher overclock?

You cant live with 70+ temps. The card will always throttle down -13 Mhz once you hit 70C and will keep doing so if the temp doesnt get below 70C.

Ok, looks like I will be getting moar fans then.

Has anyone updated to MSI-AB Beta 10 and check if the power target readings are higher? I've noticed with beta 10 its pretty much maxed out as compared to beta 9. Not sure if beta 10 is accurate or something was wrong with beta 9.
