Must I leave Precision X turned on at all time in order for my overclocking to take effect?
post #372 of 3357
Lutsk ... I'm pretty sure Precision has an 'windows startup' checkbox, right above the 'Apply' button ... The only thing it won't apply is any voltage tuner setting ... and I dunno about whether it does the fans as well but I think it does headscratch.gif

EVGA Precision X is a Riva Tuner shell. Includes 'Enable Internal Access to Application via Blue Tooth' as well.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Manual fan settings that start up with windows. Monitors and logs all GPU stats.

Screen captures. 2D & 3D profiles. On Screen Displays (OSD). Everything but forced voltage start up on windows.

However with E-Leet Tuner you can take over clocking more seriously.
  • Real-time monitoring of CPU, Memory and QPI frequencies
  • Real-time monitoring of vital voltages such as: CPU VCore, DRAM Voltage, +12v, etc.
  • Real-time monitoring of each individual core, north bridge and voltages regulator temperatures
  • Real-time adjustments of QPI Base Clocks, CPU Multiplier and PCIe Bus Frequencies
  • Directly generate CPUZ Validation file and submit it via the utility itself
  • "Brink OC" mode automatically saves a validation file every time you push up your CPU Frequency so you can grab your overclocking record with lesser hassle
  • Logitech keyboard LCD display support.

"Must I leave Precision X turned on at all time in order for my overclocking to take effect?"

Yes you do. It's not a resource drain at all to your system performance. Only way to force an over clock to a GPU is to have a software utility running in background. Check 'windows start up' and 'run minimized' at windows start up and you will never even notice it running in the back ground. No other way to over clock your GPU, otherwise it starts at default stock clocks and auto fan settings every time.

To get the best over clock you can you'd really want to set up your own fan profile. Bare minimum is 1C to 1% and higher for more extreme over clocking during benching.

I'm impressed with your score. Congrats on the cards. thumb.gif

Your EVGA GTX 670 FTW SLI 3DMark11 score 16306 running your i7 3770K @ [4.7] under water is awesome. smile.gif

My EVGA GTX 690 3DMark11 Score is 17011 & running my i7 3770K @ [4.5] on air. I'm at 1044 Base Core / 1594 Memory / 1149 Boost = Kepler Boost 1175 & 1201 Core. (24/7)

I'd say you did very well spending $798 vs my $999. The GTX 670's have turned out to be the best price performance cards of the year. smile.gif

What is your Core / Memory / Boost and Kepler Boost for GPU #1 & 2?

On a quick side note: You'd be a hero if you posted screen shots of your UEFI Sabertooth settings on the [Officia] ASUS Sabertooth Club thread or if your shy your more than welcome to PM me with them. wink.gif

Sydney is ok...damn it is getting expensive though...even games FFS!

OK, tried core @ 980+100 / mem @ 3002+400 and not only did it pass the 70 minute and 2 hour mark but I let it run for a full 8 hours straight and no issues arose...I even left the house to do other things and it was still going nicely.

then you are golden. you could try bumping things up again slightly... or just be done with it and go play some games. With +100 on your core, what boost clock does that give you? Afterburner and GPUZ will report max boost clock, etc.

Base clock is 1080
boost clock is 1159
mac observed is 1215
memory is 3402

i may or may not have reached their maximums though i think it's a good enough balance of both. my goal was to get it to 1.2GHz and i believe i have achieved that even if i was premature on the verdicts tongue.gif

So i just finalized my overclock on my Gigabyte Windforce 670. Out of the box at stock settings the core would boost up to 1110, with a boost clock of 1059. This gives me a kepler boost of a sad 41. redface.gif. Using the long method, following all the steps down to the letter, I've narrowed the boost offest to +78, giving a maximum boost clock of 1188. While I am a little disappointed that the card wasn't able to even break 1200Mhz, my memory did do a little better. After laborously increasing the offset by +100 each time and doing a run of Heaven, I began to see artifacts at +800. Backing it down to +750 proved,to be stable for a few runs, however I have yet to let it run for hours at a time. I have a 3570k at 4.5 on air, and my Heaven run with 1188 core and 3752 memory gave a score of 1230. Fps was somewhere around 48.8 (I think). Overall I can't say that I am not disappointed, what with the godly 1350Mhz+ being reported, but I did get a fair overclock on the memory. The card plays BF3 beautifully, and I am happy I chose this over the 7970.thumb.gif

Apparently I was a bit premature in giving out what my overclock was...
I actually ended up having more performance doing a more memory OC than Core. These are stable (8 heaven runs in a row + I let it run in between and played BF3 for a few hours)

System Processor: i5 3570k @ 4.5 on air
Card Model: EVGA Superclocked+ 4GB x2(SLI) - Boost 1046Mhz, Memory 3004Mhz out of the box, Max Boost 1175 out of the box. Heaven 83.7fps, 2109. Temp at 85c(no fan profile)

My Overclock:
Fan Profile: 30% at 30c, 65% at 55c, 80%(max) at 70c+.
Boost Clock: 1110 (+64 offset)
Max Boost: 1240 (avg 1215 during heavy load (benchmark, usually higher in games)
Temperature: 80/81c - just setting the power target to 122 pegged me here, clocks didn't seem to matter.
Memory: 1740Mhz(GPUz) - 3480Mhz (+475 offset)

Final Score (Heaven): 94FPS, 2369.

Well, 10fps ain't half bad I think. What kind of increase in actual FPS did others see?
