post #5471 of 7827
Hey guys, I recently bought this card, so exited to change from a radeon 7870. Well I got the clock speed running at 1411mhz max oc gpu clock with 1.265-1.285v and the memory clock at 6984 because if I set the offset of AB to 500 I get artifacts on farcry 3. After that I think the gpu clock is really good and the voltage is not so high. I wanted to know if I can get some problems in the future? or If get normal temps I will have no problems. Im currently having 70-75 °celsius on gpu and 60-65 memory temp and 70 max vrm temp with fans at 100% and ambient temp of 30° degrees celsius.smile.gif

This temp seems normal, I got about the same but at lower core frequency, 1346mhz/7114mhz, an hour of BF3 result in 71°c for the core, 65°c mem and 68°c for the vrm temp. I'm trying to reduce the voltage by keeping this core frequency, actually I'm at +63mV (wrote 60 but when apply on AB, I got 63. Didn't checked the voltage with a multimeter).
You'r core clock speed is really great btw!

It was stated by an official MSI rep someone quoted a few pages back that if temps are kept low, like what your card seems to be at, then the degradation will not noticeably affect the card's life. I think he said something along the lines of my opinion I gave a few pages back- if you lower the card's estimated life even by half, that may bring it from 12 years down to 6, and how many plan on keeping their card for 6 years? So yes, cutting the life in half is an extreme estimate to begin with, especially since you're on the stock voltage, so you're definitely good.

By the way, awesome card! And welcome to the site/club/Green-side biggrin.gif Now over-volt that bad boy and see what it can really do devil.gif

Thanks to both answers, but now I have a problem, I was playing some games, not all of them. I started playing assasins creed III and then it crashed, I saw my voltage going up and down:mad: (I think is called offset) so it seems to going lower in someparts but with the same clock speed and this results in crashing or leaving Artifacts all over the place, can someone tell me please how to make the voltage stable and locked? Thanks smile.gif

I would laugh if my galaxy s3 gets a better score than my craptop.

Are you on the LN2 BIOS? Well, that sounds like the dynamic voltage kicking in. What you can do is click "Settings" on the Afterburner interface and check the box next to "Force constant voltage", and that will force the maximum voltage you have set, including the offset, the entire time (just don't forget the reading in Afterburner is inaccurate, as all software is). Goes well with the setting in the Nvidia Control Panel, "Power Management Mode" set to "Prefer Maximum Performance", which will keep the clock speed at least at the base clock, instead of it dropping down to 800mhz every other second in a less demanding game. Sometimes it helps with a weaker game, makes it smoother by not having the clock all over the place every couple milliseconds. Just don't forget to set that for the specific program's profile, and not the 'Global' one, or else you'll be at full base clock speeds the entire time your PC is on smile.gif

Nice. Should be quite interesting indeed.

Thanks and yes, Im in LN2 Bios, recently I flashed my card to the older LN2 because of the voltage limitations, and Idk really why the voltage sometimes go lower, when I press the button "force constant voltage" its the same, I have to enable something else? Its strange, also I can only oc the voltage to +100mv

Looking forward to it, & should be out on time, MSI & hwbot are already set to kick off a competition on release day. Should be much fun!

Which driver are you using, skip the 310 drivers, 306.97 or maybe 313.96, haven't tested the 313 yet but 310's caused voltage and clocks to do that to me
