Nvidia Inspector is just like GPU-Z, but go into the settings by clicking the icon to the right of the 'Driver Version' textbox and you can adjust all sorts of settings that work at the driver level. Sort of an advanced Nvidia Control Panel I would say? Anyways, I mostly use it for the framerate limiter, since Adaptive V-Sync isn't all it's cracked up to be. Half the time it gives you tearing, and half the time it gives you mouse lag. Might as well just go with some tearing but no lag at all.

So, click the Settings icon that's to the right of 'Driver Version', and if you want to adjust settings for all games, leave the Global Profile selected and just look for Framerate Limit in the list of settings. If you want to adjust the settings for a specific game, select it's profile from the drop-down list in the upper-left corner. Happy limiting thumb.gif

Looks like your sb-e needs crasy volts biggrin.gif

Vga was at 1668/1752 @ about 1.575V, on z77 I did finish a run at 1700/1800 at 1.6V but crashed pressing the save, turned out the mobo blew a memory channel, will only boot single channel now.
The 3930k would pass with less volts, but higher voltage was adding a bit to the physics score so ran it higher.

You, sir, are the man thumb.gif Excellent run. Sorry to hear about the motherboard blowing a gasket. Casualties of war wink.gif

BTW I have posted the new 3DM11@1411MHz a while back, not that it s any major improvement..smile.gif

UPDATED! In this OC even though your core is 1411, your mem was lower frequency than before. I had to update your mem frequency in order to change the core freq to 1411

Since I think I'm allowed to post some pictures of it today, a little MSI z77 mpower teaser for the lightning owners because the cards just look really good in this board...,

Man. Looking at that OC spreadsheet in the OP is quite a sight. I can still remember last gen when hitting 1Ghz was the thing to do. Now 1.4 seems like the new milestone to hit. I can't imagine what the 780 Lightning will be like. Although, Nvidia's already been giving MSI a hard time. I wonder what will happen with the next gen.

True, true... I remember trying 1Ghz with GTX 580 quite well, well.. it looks that my card with the WC could run 1400MHz easily -I can play Skyrim at1342 with the fan
55% @1.216 / really its more, we know../

But it really looks that MSI hit the nail - good chips, excellent chokes and extra capacitors pay off . BTW I d be interested what the EVGA boys think of this card smile.gif
EVGA at my place is not that strong, but as far as I can see they got a pretty hefty fan base in the U.S. A.

GTX 680 Classified seems to be quite overpriced and lacking the OC features of Lightning. You need EV bot and EVGA MB to bypass the Nvidia fence ..

GTX 780 and GTX 780K IMHO! I hope they don't burden overclockers with this nonsense (locking voltage on most cards) again. thumb.gif

Not bad just keep pluging away thumb.gif

Sucks my z77(ud5) blew a ram slot too,cant get it back even after a massage over the area and resetting the cpu with an air cooler.
sucks even older benches dont like single channel so for 3d its garbage

Flash to latest normal bios (102 - 39). 100% Fan at startup has been brought back, so I guess I'm reverting back to 101a. Famich do you experience this behaviour too?

Regards!
post #2339 of 7827
Yes, my card s got the newer BIOSes and it spins in the reverse at the startup .
I personally do not mind, 39 and 3A /LN2/ seem OK to me, tried once the F8 LN2, but it gave me the hard reset after the failed OC , pretty much like to everyone else...smile.gif

Regards !

Hey guys so I tried to see what the "true" voltage my ln 2 bios could achieve. So I maxed out in afterburner the mv and connected up a multimeter and ran heaven benchmark. This was the max recorded V 1.078 ~1.081

On Afterburner software though it recorded a max V of 1.304

So yea, no idea what that means :/. Does it mean my Voltage is software locked at the default 1.1750V?! Coz if it is that would suck nut.
