3DMark 11 nvidia drivers test:

3DMark 13 tests soon. thumb.gif
post #6392 of 7827
I just had a fun weekend with benching, single GTX 680 and i3770k on watercooling. I took the computer outside and the temperature there was just around the freezing point.




GPU-Z show wrong frequencies. I was on 1555Mhz on the firestrike test and 1515Mhz in the 3dmark11 test. My Radiator cant keep the water cool enough to run the CPU test if I go beyond 1515 in 3dmark11. I divide the loop in two the coming weekend and hopefully reach higher in both tests.

Still with all settings on default and no windows tweaks. Only MSI AB and Artmoney ;-)

Good stuff, I test drivers but never think to write down or save results, thanks for sharing!

Good stuff here as well!
You, djramses & menthol are doing some pretty amazing things on water...

D'oh ! 1500+mhz nice, I've tried Artmoney, 1450 was already requesting +200mV, it's not that the temp were high but I was just messing around.
Still need Nvidia to get their driver together anyway... I did like 10x 19800+ easy on 3DMark11 sometime back (306.97) and now I have hard time getting ~19600 (with artmoney).

Plus, today I received Tomb Raider and seriously, w/o the new driver it was horrible, poor perf and sli wasn't detected. It's all good with 314.21, but as expected, while running Crysis 3 I have major stutter. Not to mention the OC issue, explained few post ago...

all done with 306.97 (1398Mhz/1778Mhz no Artmoney or anything) Warning: Image! (Click to show)

done with 313.95 to 314.21 (first one @ 1450Mhz/1862Mhz w/ artmoney) Warning: Image! (Click to show)

Got my 1st card in, decided to see what the gimped LN2 bios currently shipping can manage. I haven't messed with memory yet, mainly wanted to see what core could do on stock LN2 bios.

Crysis 3 does a nice work at crashing drivers with a bad OC so I used it to see what I could do with core. I maxed first two sliders was only able to get to +40 on core. Anything more resulted in driver crash:

nV drivers: 314.07
AB: 3.0 Beta 7
LN2 BIOS = 80.04.47.00.19 (new card/factory)

AB settings:
Core mV: +100
Power Limit: 133
Core Clock: +40



That seems pretty lame? I was considering not flashing LN2 bios and settling with what I could pull with AB, but 40mhz sucks, barely worth running Afterburner. I'll flash LN2 bios tonight and start again.

Yeah flashing the card is an absolute need for overclocker.

Very much so. I'm looking forward to doing around 1300 on two in SLI.

The locked LN2 BIOS is not gimped. It works well -- in some ways better than the unlocked one on the later cards for which it's designed. The unlocked BIOS will only let you throw more voltage at the core, and run TDP up to 300%, which is not helpful in normal use.

If you really need +100mv on core to get a boost clock of 1215 with no mem OC, then I doubt flashing will take you much further, although, honestly, I don't mean to discourage you from trying.

I'm using the original LN2 BIOS exclusively now. I can get 1215 mhz on boost and +600 on mem with no added core voltage, while backing off the mem voltage by 50mv. This is great for temps in C3. And performance is excellent; see below:



My 680L has an asic score of only 70.9, so the unlocked BIOS doesn't give me any better clocks -- just more heat and more fan noise. In both cases, the boost clock maxes at 1333 mhz, but it's a little cooler and quieter with the shipped BIOS.

I'm finding that the locked BIOS consistently gives me the same boost clock at lower voltages than the unlocked one. Now, this could be due to some flaw in AB where it reports voltages differently depending on BIOS version (a variable "inaccuracy offset", let's say), but I've seen no evidence of that. AB should be good enough for comparisons, even if it's not reporting the true voltage, and it should be consistent unless you change your version of AB.

So yeah, I'm realy starting to prefer the LN2 BIOS that came with the card.

You just need to put it on water. Low asic score require more cooling and more voltage but overclocks really well. I got an asic score of 71 as well and I am doing 1555mhz on water.
