~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 74

post #731 of 3357
I think I've got a pretty decent card as far as overclocking goes.

GPU clock is at 1238 (+122% power; Precision shows 131% TDP but the clock doesn't throttle).

Fairly unimpressive 91 mhz KB, but the +155mhz offset evens it out.

Memory is outstanding though. I am at 600mhz offset right now and Furmark, with SeanPoe's settings, is running 40 mins stable with no artifacts.

Heaven works, kinda. No crashing and the only couple artifacts I get is on the Cutscene camera only where it rotates around the dragon [happens at stock though anyways; friend has same issue].



Just posting to see what others think of the OC. EVGA base model 670.

GC - 1238
Power - +122%
Memory - 3602 mhz

Definitely one of the better ones, mine is higher but it all comes down to luck with these cards.

And dont worry about those Heaven artifacts, everyone gets them smile.gif I was worried aswel when I noticed them, but a quick google search showed that everyone have them.

I was just wondering, this guide looks very comprehensive and is quite helpful, but would it be possible for the thread starter, or maybe someone who knows as much to make a video tutorial and post it on Youtube?

Just for derpy people like myself who need a demonstration on how to do it.

Also, what are some safety risks I 'd have to be on the lookout for if I do decide to OC my 670?

On my vanilla EVGA 670.

GC: +130MHz @1240MHz
Mem: +525MHz @ 3524MHz.

Not to shabby for a ref.

Dear OP,

you say that we have to TEMPORARLY increase voltage and power target to the maximum. However I can't see to what setting we have to decrease them after finding the maximum stable overclock.
post #737 of 3357
Hi guys I have a few questions:

If I overclock to beyond the card's capability, does the driver just crash and force close whatever game I'm running or might it burn my card?

How do I ensure my overclock is stable? Do I run something like furmark for 12 hours? Or do I just have to pass one round of heaven dx11 benchmark without artifacts or crashes?

Once my overclock is stable, at what point do I turn down the power target and voltage to default?

I hope someone can help me out with this. Thank you!

I'm wondering how good my OC for my card. I have a EVGA 670 FTW 2gb edition and at the moment my OC is:

Voltage: max (the max precision setting)
Power target: 115% (according to what OC scanner showed it needed)
Core: +80
Memory: +150

If I go any higher on the core clock then when I play a game on one monitor and watch a stream on the second the stream will freeze and go green. The memory OC I will admit I haven't played with much. I think when my Kepler boost kicks in with that OC it's around 1200 core clock total.

Any recommendation on what I should do with this OC or is it as good as it gets? Sorry I'm at work so I might misspell words or not have full info.

I followed the guide and on my 670 FTW My final overclock was 1290 on the core and 1374 on the memory . Those were the settings that i could used ithout my drivers crashing in heaven I also colud run 3dmark11 for 6 times straight.

Did you followed the guide in the OP ?????

You colud always try this :

http://www.overclock.net/t/1289489/gtx-670-unlocked-voltage-bios

It gave me 23mhz more on the core and i colud break the 1300 thumb.gif but the memory stayed the same ..

Give it a try
