Post your Stable 7970 overclock numbers and 3dmark11 Performance Score

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Mine is 1230/1700@1.243v

My 3dMark11 score is P10167 and GPU score is 10522

I can go higher and still bench fine and play most games fine at like 1240/1250 but at these clocks I've found a game that will always fine the instability. LOL "Nexuiz" That freaking game has a benchmark built in and always finds it. LOL I want to see if I can go higher on the core but am nerveous about pushing the voltage up higher. Plus i'm not even sure how many more fps i can even gain on it going up another 10-40mhz you know. I mean a couple frames i would take but 1fps or something and increase heat wouldn't be worth it. LOL.

What is the highest I can safely go without killing the card. I'm not worried about getting 3 years out of the card instead of 6 years if raising the temp but i don't want the card shot in 2 years.

if you can keep temps below 75c under load then you could increase voltage to 1.275 - 1.3v. But I would say its just not worth the extra 50 Mhz or so you could get. Definitely not if you want the card to last 3 years.

Yeah thats why i wanted to see some example of 3dmark11 scores people were getting because I'm not sure the increased heat and stress on the card would even be worth the additional 50mhz like you said but then sometimes you find a nice bump in performance once you pass a certain point. LOL
