post #3271 of 7827
Could be power supply, the ripple noise. And idd even i hear annoying noise from 680 in certain mega high fps... like 3dmark 2003. No wonder this is normal.
Even on a Silverstone Strider 1200W Gold Evo which i have have special anti coil whine cables.

I gonna get to try my hands on the Afterburner Extreme version here in The Netherlands, yeye i know i have to call MSI and so on.. I hope they can give me the sample if i give my Serial number so its blocked for any RMA's smile.gif.

Whats max safe temp for it? And what voltage would u guys recomend? 1,4? max.
Wonder what kind of voltage is safe despite the temps.

Or maybe its a bad idea at all to go above 1,28 ??
I think the design is made to go up 1,28v.
I overclock since 1997. never had any problems at all, even not with that old stuff not even ment for overclocking.

I just got a reply back from a dutch forum that says just call MSI and explain what you want..
So how you guys think about my idea?

Safe voltage on air will be Nvidia stock voltage. MSI raised that a bit and thats what MSI allow and finds safe. Since the twinfrozed cools better than reference cooler it might be ok. Be aware that MSI OC cards is feeded with more voltage than MSI AB reads out - like 0.06v, so when you see 1.21v in MSI AB it might be 1.28v, plug a multimeter to find out A German website addressed that problem related to a 660Ti test and MSI replied that it benefits overclockers which is correct, but it also mean that the GPU voltage from default are raised above Nvidia limits. I would stick to reference voltage when gaming and push it to 1.4Xv when benching.

Link about the GTX660 and GTX670Ti, the 680 Lightning should have the same benefit.

Nah it wasnt the PSU thumb.gif

Could easily hear the whine came from my 7970

I hear alot of ppl with 7950/7970 have this problem especially with high fps like in game menus and intros / old games / benchmarks rolleyes.gif

GPU 1476MHz! (for some reason GPU-Z cant show my GPU frequencies in idle, so look at the graph in the right)

How is my score so much lower? I got 13,050 Graphics Score at 1480/7200 (CPU @ 5Ghz) headscratch.gif

Awesome score by the way thumb.gif

Are you running 3DMark 11 on stretched or centered? Stretched nets a slightly higher graphic score

Always stretched, yep frown.gif

No throttling either, that I can see. When the memory is clocked too high and throttles but doesn't crash, like that ECC or something, I forgot what it's called, but when that happens with the memory, do you just lose performance or can you actually see it downclocking itself? Is it possible that is what's happening?

I dont know. You are close, so maybe you run something in the background that suck some of the juice. I use the latest wjql drivers on default settings. Did you put powertarget high enough?

Oh yes. Even at over 1.4v I only hit around 100% Power usage, and I always put the slider around 150-200% just for the hell of it. And I always make sure I close everything I can before a bench run. GPU usage is always at 0% for a good few seconds before I run any benches so I can make sure there's not a program running in the background fluctuating the usage.

I think the last time I ran 1480/7200 I was using the 304.xx betas. Do the latest WHQL drivers really add ~500pts to GPU Score?
