post #2822 of 3357
strange thinks happening to my card???
with stock bios i can get 1254 core and 3400 memory and in valley it gets 105% max power
with mod bios 1254 core at 1.187volt 3350 memory i'm getting throttle because its over 150% max power in valley.even with stock memory speeds i have throttle.
how can this be possible i only add 0.010 volt????

Hello? Anyone, please?

sry... i've never used the nvidia inspector... i think that's an old deprecated tool, maybe having it installed conflicts with precisionx in some way... idk?

Thanks for th guide, OP.

Firstly, here are my specs:

i5 2500k@4.5ghz
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
Zotac 670 Amp Edition
8gigs Corsair Vengeance
z68x-ud5-b3 with latest bios
OCZ 90GB Agility 3 SSD
OCZ Zs Series 750w PSU
Windows 7 64

Latest drivers.
Clean windows install


I have a few questions:

1. You say to set the fan profile high to prevent the card going over the 70 degrees throttle point during benchmark, but even if I set the profile to maximum my gpu gets to around 80 degrees toward the end of the test, spiking at 90 at the very end.

After testing the benchmark with most higher settings disabled and getting these temps, I was a little worried about trying with higher settings.

These were my results runnig heaven:

Are my temps too high for the bench?
Does the score look acceptable?

-

Also, I'm playing a game called Warframe. Users with less or equal hardware than me report FPS of 60+ in all instances. I get dips to 40fps often. My gpu seems to sit at around 20-30% usage. I'm wondering if there's anything about my system that might be an obvious cause for this?

Will an overclock of my card help this?
Does that usage amount look correct?

-

Thanks for any help, a bit new to overclocking and would appreciate any advice here.

what case are you using? it may be an air flow problem causing your 670 to overheat.
do you have msi afterburner or prec-x installed? open up the monitor graph so we can see gpu temp, usage, core speed, and power %.
yes overclocking will help but you need to figure out why youre seeing only 20-30% usage. did you restart your pc after the drivers crashed?
you also should run default max settings in heaven to get(and for us to get) a real indication of your score.

Airflow seems fine for all other apps, I rarely get temps over 70 degrees.

This is my case. Most games sit at around 50-60 degrees under load (BF3, Arkham City. Warframe). Some more intensive games can take it up to around 70-80 (The Witcher 2).

I opened the side and ointed a large desk fan at it to be sure, then ran Heaven on Extreme preset.





I didn't mention a driver crash, so not sure what you're referencing there...

Thanks!

Also, I ran Warframe and recorded the results.





This was in the most graphically intensive area of the game.

Does it tell you anything?

Thanks.

im assuming you use a form of vsync. is that right?
your usage in game maxes at 84%. power maxes at 77%. temp hits 75* and fans only at 45%. my only advice here is to turn up your fan to keep it cool.
during heaven your core clock drops when you hit 72*(?) but it doesnt drop again from what we can see. i honestly dont see a problem with the heaven benchmark usage monitor.
i always assume drivers crash as it happens naturally when you check overclocks on cards just as bsod happens with cpu overclocks. you would be surprised how many people come looking for help after not restarting and their card is acting 'under par.'
i played warframe while it was still in closed beta and do not remember actual usage on my asus while it was running at 1285. both gpus are watered so its kinda pointless for me to try to compare because of heat/no heat differences.
fill out your rig info in the system builder/rig builder and im sure you can get some real help. im sorry i cant really help much at all after all

also most WF3 670 ive seen get excelent mem overclocks but lack on the core clock

used the new gpu-z. damned gb wf3 reads an 88.3% while the asus reads 99.5%
i actually bought the wf3 as an open box. i had the card for 1 hour and knew why the guy returned it. with an hour and 45 minute drive each way i didnt want to return it. i run 64x csaa on 1080p so it works fine for me. eye candy out the wahzoo and great frames, 72mhz with v-sync and never dropping in anything i play.

Tells me that Warframe isn't really intensive or maybe its getting cpu bound? GPU usage no where near 99% and the clock rate is somewhat off its maxboost for lack of demand. Your temps are too high for this undemanding situation, albeit the fan isn't even trying to keep it cool here since is only running at 40% speed.

Valley really does put a load on and graphically intense games will too (try crysis some time). I see you've got the fan cranked up for that benchmark and temps are still thru the roof.

> I opened the side and pointed a large desk fan at it to be sure

Hmmm... what kind of card do you have make/model? You might want to pull the cooler off, clean the old tim, reapply new paste and reseat it? Its running way hotter than it should given the exrtra blast of cool air a "large desk fan" should provide and the clocks you're running at. I would do that first if i were you and see if/how much it helps and go from there.

For comparison, mine stays under 70c with my max OC that boosts up to 1306Mhz, and thats with the case door on and no fancy cooling involved (shrouded blower style).

Also what kind of fans do you have your coolermaster case setup with? It's got room for a 140 up front, 120 on the bottom, and something on the sidepanel. Which of those do you have what kind of fans in? After reseating, if temps are improved but still too high... i'd think about adding fans to the bottom or side positions (assuming you've got something decent up front already of course).

Nice 16.7" tall atx case btw, I have a 17" tall case too smile.gif
