~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 264

post #2631 of 3357
So i manged to overclock my video card to a stable clock but the values are confusing.
I know overclocking the memory is easy for the GTX 670 but my GPU clock is abysmal.
I have an ASUS GTX 670 DC2 (non top).
Default clocks:
GPU: 915
Memory: 1502
Boost: 980
Overclocks:
GPU: 1015 (+100)
Memory: 1752(+500)
Boost: 1080

I guess i am happy with the 10% gain in my Heaven benchmark

Ive been reading in many places that people have been able to get very close, if not over +200 via the ASUS GTX 670 DC2 for the GPU clock. Also in over all, resulting in a 1165 boost clock.
My card crashes as soon as it goes over +100 (even if i downclock the memory to just +300). Am i doing something wrong?
Or should i be happy?

Anyone care to take a look at this Precision X log and tell me why it's down clocking so much? I highlighted the areas where it drops or raises and this is while I had my friend run Heaven 3.0, but stopped half way through at the dragon scene. I still can't figure this out. Someone with more knowledge, can you please help?

I guess that card just uses a little more power than some others.

It's hitting the power target and throttling clocks/voltages as a result. look at the Power and Power Limit columns to see that. I'm not sure why its using that much power but it is (for comparison, my card ends up using ~114% max on this bench). If it weren't for hitting that limit, looks like it'd be boosting up to 1280.

That doesn't make sense, if you look where it is hitting 1267 those power % are about the same as when it was at 1241 and if you are looking at the power limit, it is set to 1 almost the entire time.

Not sure why you insist its not power throttling. Being set to '1' means it throttling for that reason and there are very many values in the power column greater than or equal to 122. What doesn't make sense?

Then can you explain cells 111-126? Why didn't it clock down during this point? I'm just trying to make sense of this for my sake and I'm not trying to argue with you.

Lower + 100 start 60ish work up slowly until crash move down -2 test.thumb.gif

Ohh no, i said that the +100 GPU and +500 MEM clocks are stable.
Its just that i have seen many people are able to get their GPU to +200 over the default ASUS GTX670 DC2 clocks (GPU: 915 Memory: 1502 Boost: 980).
Is this just the common case that i just happen to not get a very well manufactured card out of the batch, just like CPUs for eg or is this a good OC?

I see sorry to many threads reading lol I would lower mem and increase from 100 slowly and test

So in trying to follow this to the letter with my 680, I don't get past step one before being confused.



Sean said to set boost to clock to 1100. Done. That's a -24 offset for me. Ran Heaven, checked GPU-Z, found my max boost clock to be 1124. Subtracting my boost clock (1100) from my max boost clock (1124) gives me a whopping 24. Same as my offset. I have a very hard time believing my Kepler boost is a mighty 24MHz.

Does this method not work with 680s?
