~~The GTX 670 Overclocking Master-Guide~~ - Page 97

post #961 of 3357
So I just ran heaven on stock on my windforce GTX 670 and GPU-Z shows the GPU Core Clock MAX in the sensor tab to reach 1123.5 when OP example shows his reaching 1250+

So my stock boost is 1059 and my max (stock) is 1123.5 that means my Kepler boost rounded is 64! Did I just get the crappiest windforce ever or is OP's method to determine Kepler boost done after reaching your most stable overclock?

EDIT: GPU temp never went past 60 degrees so it isn't throttling. Am I getting bad overclocking results because I don't have PCI 3.0 or is my card just a bottom binner?

EDIT2: I guess I am on the latest BIOS version for this card too. Should I re-flash it just in case?

BTW I used Driver Sweeper to remove all AMD and NVIDIA drivers so as to perform a CLEAN install of drivers so it cant be driver issues.

Well your previous post mentions 1215MHz as the max boost, so your card is definitely not a good overclocker. It ain't bad though! Don't bother with the stock clocks or the kepler boost, what really matters is your max stable boost after OC. If that's 1215MHz then it's not bad for games. Increase the memory clock like I told you (you should be able to do at least +300) and you'll be OK.

As for the PCI-E, it doesn't really matter as long as you're running at PCI-E2.0 16x. Neither a BIOS flash will help you from what I can tell.

BTW, you should run FurMark at OP's settings to determine your real max temps. They are about 10°C more than while running Heaven.

Don't get addicted to benchmarking! You bought the card to have a good gaming experience, not to score some points higher in a benchmark. Find out your max stable OC, make a nice profile along with an efficient fan curve and start gaming dude!
I read your posts in this thread and I really think you should start again from scratch. Make sure you fully understand the guide. Your first post indicated otherwise.
Also I would suggest using the 306.97 driver, or the newest beta one which is said to be better.


I think I will, thanks. Just need some more time on my hands. As for now, I'm keeping it on stock with 306.97.

Guys quick question:

So I'm new to Kepler...
Using evga precision I've found out a few things with my 670
The voltage tuner doesn't work....no matter what voltage I set the tuner at, its locked at 1.175v when under load...
The Power Target doesn't do anything too. I can set it to 75% or 122% and neither do anything...

The only thing that really matters for my card is the core offset and memory offset.

Is power target or voltage tuner for something relating to temperatures if they become an issue? My card under water won't go over 35C and I I've found the voltage tuner and power target to be completely useless...

Will try Future mark. I tired +81 boost and +90 (Mem +400 on both scenarios) and both were stable. The difference in Futuremark score with 81GPU 400MEM vs 91GPU 400MEM was minimal

FPS: 45.7
Scores: 1152
Min FPS: 20.4
Max FPS: 113.3

VS

FPS: 45.8
Scores: 1154
Min FPS: 19.8
Max FPS: 114.3

Anyway, I game at 1920x1200 and there is no game I can't run on all Ultra. When new Metro game comes or if a higher res monitor comes out that I might like better than my UltraSharp U2410, I might try to Flash that Unlocked BIOS I saw in some other thread. If my temps on Futuremark are 60 degrees still, do you think flashing that unlocked BIOS to up the voltage would be ok?

on 3dmark 11 or heaven benchmark? Because I think, Heaven and 3dmark 11 have a different method (algorithm) for testing the card.

I tested my MSI 670 PE in Heaven with 1333Mhz and it was stable, I think I can go more furter than that
