Two games I forgot to mention lol. Metro and Crysis are also really intensive. Either way you will have a higher OC then me so good job! Being at 1163 sucks :/

I had to lower it twice today :/ Crashing in CS: GO.. now im at +143 GPU CLOCK OFFSET = 1241 MAX BOOST...dont feel to bad smile.gif

EDIT: That is what i was at originally when testing with Heaven...lol so mabye Heaven was right all along..

Can someone explain why i cant get my GPU clock to around 1100MHz?

As soon as i go over +105 for the GPU clock i start crashing and seeing artifacts even when i purposely downclock the memory by -50.

I hear many people are getting the GTX 670's GPU to a stable OC of around 1100Mhz but i cant get anywhere near that :/

The mem clock you have dialed in is very high, maybe instability there is giving you trouble. If you leave mem at a zero offset, can the gpu clock higher?

His offsets are to high start low work up .....

Sigh. Did no one read that even if i set my mem offset to -50 (below default) i still can't get any higher than 105 on my gpu offset :/
I followed the general rule of starting from scratch and working my way up in small increments. I didn't just set my clocks to a random high value.
Also a Mem clock of around +600 is quite stable and gives me a performance boost over lower values.
I also wanted to know what are the causes of me not being able to achieve those higher clocks. Could it be possible that the manufactured card i have is not the best out of the batch?

I actually have the same thing with my 680s. Neither wants to take an offset higher than 100-105 no matter the memory clock. This weekend I'm going to go back to one card and see what the max of each of them individually is and use those numbers instead of the sync feature in Precision.

So you have the same situation as me where you are unable to to set your GPU offset to reach the average OC everyone else is getting?

Oh... sorry, I thought you meant you lowered it to +575 instead of +625 blinksmiley.gif

As for why... seems like that's hard to really determine. There's a lot of luck involved when it comes to how far particular chips can exceed their design limits, the silicon lottery thing. Could be some other components (also subject to the silicon lottery) on your board are holding it back if not the GPU itself. I have no idea how to identify the culprit in detail.

With the boost clock showing in GPUZ of 1085, after kepler boost has kicked in, what do you end up with as a max boost? Just curious.

On the bright side, that's a pretty nice mem overclock. Maybe you can tell me why the mem on my card can't run those clocks smile.gif

Basically yes. At full load with boost / Kepler boost / rainbows & unicorns, my vanilla 680 is hard to get over 1171 and my rev 1 Superclocked 1241. This is independent of my memory offset; messing with memory influences my max core clock offset by maybe 1-5 points. It looks like the average 680 is clocking easily above 1200, often 1250, so the fact that one of mine simply won't and the other is only 1240 is more than a little frustrating. I have not managed to figure out why or how to circumvent these limitations and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't paying attention to the Kingpin mods (unlocking voltage) to see if those are viable options.

However, what might be the case with our 670s and 680s is we might be seeing the 'average' clocks of people with unlocked voltages. It looks like Lightning, FTW, Windforce, Classified, and a couple other card series either have voltage unlocked natively and/or available BIOS mods that unlock the voltage. I know basically every single 680 in the top spots of our official benchmarks are Lightning editions so the 'average' clock I/we see might just be the average for Lightnings vs the average across the board.
