Question about overclocking the 670 GTX  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have an MSI 670 stock OC model. I have precision X set at 122% power target and 1.175mv with a GPU offset of +54. GPU-z Reads GPU Clock - 1021 Mhz and Boost of 1100Mhz.

How come when I run a game or benchmark the boost goes up to 1242MHz. There does not seem to be any problems just that it is monitored at the high clock. Any help is appreciated!

We call what you're talking about the Kepler Boost around here. Well, I do, anyways ... and the term is catching on thumb.gif

Please feel free to join in any of the half-dozen or so already-started (most of them quite busy) threads on the subject of 670's and overclocking wink.gif
