Could someone fill me in on a few things to get started?

What LN2 bios should I use? I still have the 80:04:28:00:3A , which I downloaded last year...hopefully that wasnt the issue.

Which Driver and MSI AB should I run? Currently driver 314.07, and non profiled mod 2.3.1 AB.

SYSTEM
Win7
i7377k stable oc 4.5ghz
stock gpu cool, cpu liquid
p8z77vpro mb

Thanks for any info!

Sorry meant to post this in the GTX 680L forum

Erm, I'm a bit late to this but what the hell.
I've had my 670 for a long time but never bothered with overclocking it because the temps would climb to way over 70@load even at stock speeds (crappy palit ref cooler). But I recently put it "under water" so I thought I'd see how much I could squeeze out of it.

Now the problem is that I'm getting very inconsistent scores in Heaven Benchmark, first i got 804 on 000-400 but when I tried again later I only got 463. I've also witnessed the same on other frequencies. What could cause this? Did the settings not apply correctly the first time or what?

What settings and resolution are you using? 804 seems low for a 670 to start with.

What is the rest of your spec? is it the i5 760 rig?

The settings showed in the OP @ 1440p. I have always had some problems with getting this GPU to run at full speed, for example in DayZ Standalone my GPU usage sits at around 20% which makes my FPS stay around 30FPS no matter what settings. The GPU clock isn't 100% either, it seems to be auto down clocking by a few hundred MHz. I've tried K-Boost but that just made the power % stay stupidly low so nothing changed in terms of framerate. Could that be the cause for this as well?
At least it can't be temperature throttling as the GPU won't go over 40C even at full load.

Yes it's the i5 rig, CPU is currently stock frequency (2,8) but I remember having the same issues while I ran it at some 4GHz.
post #3175 of 3357
Have you tried using the monitor page in GPUz to see what reason the driver gives for limiting the speed?

After finding my GPU/Mem clock offset, should I leave my voltage and power target at the maximum?

It won't hurt anything to leave them there. It might crash if you lower them...

No matter what, there is always a slight change of 13 points in my GPU clock Mhz. For example it jumps between 1150 and 1137. Is that normal and something that would stop me from having a good overclock?

i run both cards at 1202mhz and never get the 13mhz jump on either card.
if i set them both at 1228, my gigabyte card will jump to 1241 and sometimes crash. for this reason and this reason alone i have them both set to 1202. btw, my asus card will clock 1285mhz completely stable and when i ran it single, it never had the 13mhz jump. the max clock was higher way back when i first got the asus. it would boost past 1315 stable. i dont know why or how nvidia crippled the cards with drivers

Kepler cards step up and down in increments of 13Mhz, its normal for them to do so when the conditions call for it. Of course, I try to arrange things such that it never steps down for any reason. There are a few reasons they will step down under load. The two we have most control over are:

* exceeds the 70c temp threshold (and another 13Mhz when exceeding 80c)
* exceeds the power target

What temperature does do you see under load? What do you see for power usage under load? If you run precisionx or afterburner and monitor those stats, you'll probably see numbers pressing up against the limits. Those monitoring tools will also display a 'reason for downclocking' value.

To deal with temps, plug in an aggressive fan curve and get those case fans working. To deal with power target, move that slider to the right.

I've got a fan 'curve' thats more or less a straight line from (35c, 30%) to (70c, 78%) and the powertarget is set at 130%.
