I get what you're saying and am not trying to disprove you or something.

But there has to be a reason the scores went up and it's not simply because the cards got cooler. The clocks had to have been higher to record better FPS and therefore get better score. That, or the driver gives better performance (but personally I doubt it, thankfully they aim towards games rather than try and get improvements in 3DMark etc).

Or, you were being temp throttled before doing this.

This is exactly what I'm thinking. It's unusual that those scores went up just by that significant decrease in temps. I'm leaning towards his card being throttled in the first place before even putting it under water.

Maybe... IDK.... I dont' really care honestly. Maybe when I get time I'll look into it more. For now I'm just happy and don't feel like putting the air coolers back on to test only to figure this out. Doesn't seem worth it right now.

I'll just take my extra scores for whatever reason they happened and be happy with it. Sometimes ya just gotta be lazy and play some games ya know?

so after ive overclocked what do I put the voltage to. at the start of guide ou said to put voltage and power target to max temporally when do I put them back to normal or lower them? or do I just keep them both maxed out?

from my understanding you should keep the power target to max at all times, but the core voltage is your call, some leave it at max, others return it to default. Mine is back to default now, in fact I oced with it at default in the first place

all moving the over-voltage slider really does is tell the vid card the minimum amount of voltage to supply. its beneficial if the vrm (or whatever) doesnt supply juice as soon as the card needs it. some cards a drop in voltage or a sudden need of voltage can/will cause a crash if the juice isnt there when its demanded.

Looking for a little help here guys. I've got a EVGA reference GTX670 here with a flashed bios and water cooling. Card stays super cool and never gives me any major issues. Usually runs at 1241mhz gpu and 3506 memory. Lately (especially while playing World of Tanks) it seems that my GPU is dropping performance by a large margin. My usage stays high, but the actual clocks are way way low. Sometimes there will be a freeze in the game that may or may not be related to the overclock settings, but it runs Heaven just fine. Often it takes a quick reboot to resolve the issue. Has anyone else run into something like this.

I've attached the EVGA Precision graph showing 99% gpu usage, but very low power, gpu clock, and memory clocks. You can still see the higher plateau from before I had to "ctrl-alt-del" out of World of Tanks. I've also included the Bios i currently.

Woah dude that is weird.

A while back I made a custom bios and locked my clock speeds ( I hate boost's inconsistencies) and voltage, maybe you should try the same? 1241 MHz isn't a hefty OC for a water cooled card ( mine does 1306 on stock cooling) so I wonder if forcing a consistent clock through bios will fix your issue.

So try disabling boost and see what happens.
post #3050 of 3357
I would be all for that. Havent found a lot of info on what does what inside the bios screens, just info on "how" to flash it.

I was expecting a lot more but when it jumps to 1254 in Heaven 3.0 it seems to crash everytime.
