No need. Right click on the graph, and clear history.

And Makkqverk, I'm just kidding. You've got a dandy card just as it is, better than many of any brand.

Yeah.. im absolutely going to RMA this card!!! crappy clocker... crappy msi selling me this card cheaper than the 680 DCii hehehe <3 JOKE! biggrin.gif

Yeah, i like overclocking! it's cool, like domino haha. i gues i will have the card in LN1 when gaming anyways hehe smile.gif gives me over 200fps? in mw3 so i'm happy haha

Hey guys I'm new to OCN and overclocking and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Just got done with my 3570k but those tests didn't fail on me nearly as much as this Lightning is.

Currently have it set to +60/+400 which is an effective 1262/1702 and it's giving me some trouble in Heaven but runs just fine in Kombustor. The issue isn't that the Nvidia driver is crashing/recovering its that Heaven itself is crashing. Are heaven crashes normal? It seems that my card is a poor OC. (GPUz shows a boost of 1236 but the graphs of GPUz and Afterburner both show 1262 if that means anything)

This just occurred to me...How do I tell which BIOS it is currently set to? The +60 with an effective 1262 indicates the LN2 if I'm not mistaken but I haven't changed it...Does that mean I got a return/refurb from Newegg or is it possible to ship with the LN2 enabled?

Also, is it necessary to adjust the fan profile for an OC? I have it set on 100% while I'm testing but is it okay to leave it on auto once I've found my spot?

You just have to set the offset higher, that's all. BIOS1 must have a higher Boost than the LN2 BIOS for some reason. But that doesn't mean you won't be stable at the same, and probably higher, core on the LN2 BIOS. For 1350mhz in the LN2 BIOS, set it to +148 offset. You'll probably be stable at a higher core since the LN2 BIOS puts out more voltage.

Crashes are normal as well as having to hard reset. Kombuster isn't really the best test for stability, I'd use it for temps, but that's about it. And use the graphs in Afterburner for your max clocks, not GPU-Z. When looking at your card in the computer, the LN2 BIOS is to the right, so you're probably using it since the default core speed for it is 1202mhz. 100% fan speed will let you squeeze out a few more mhz for a bench, but unless you want it running that loud during a game, you probably won't be stable unless you lower the overclock a few mhz.
