Heres my score when I had it maxed, http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4067599
I just managed to jump over the 10k mark with my sandybridge i5. It looks as though most scores in that range are i7's or at least ivybridge cpu's. So, again, really chuffed with that. I'll give it some more runs tonight with some screenshots of precision graphs open-temps,max clocks,power targets etc.

Nice score! thumb.gif

I bumped my Top to 1340 for a quick run:

Yeah it's a FTW. Realistically it performs fine in all the games I play but it drives me NUTS see how much higher other FTW cards are. Heck, I've seen a couple 660ti OCed higher than my 670.

I'm dead against RMAing cards due to low clocks but I'm beginning to think there's something flat out wrong with it.

All GK104s should clock roughly the same, in the end it's all the same chip. The reference 660s just don't win that much because of the power target limitation.

yea I have not had an RSOD in a few days since I flashed back to stock bios. I don't know for sure if my card degraded since the RSOD has stopped but i'm thinking it has not.

I don't think I'm going back to any modded bios because I apparently was not stable at 1231 (RSOD) 1215 (RSOD) so i'm closer to the 1202 that tecfreak sets since I don't think I would have gone above 1202 if it RSOD there.

Point is my max before VMOD was 1178 so from that to 1202 is not worth $400 if my card decides to die.

I am slightly considering RMA this card like people have suggested just to be safe and since it is a low clocker and the RSOD i've had. I don't think I will though unless I start getting RSOD @ 1178 then it's getting RMA for sure.


Here is my take on the RSOD. say you push a card to the max on a 1.175 bios it's not truly the max of the card just the max of the clocks with that voltage so it will give you game crashes w/ display driver has reset messages in windows (USUALLY 99% of the time in my experience atleast) But when you push the extra electricity through it and the card truly is at its max it just locks the whole card/system up and thats why you get RSOD crashes.

I don't however know if RSOD lockups cause permanent damage but my thought so far after testing this card is NO or Not without letting it happen ALOT.

I would also say that this core clock is not rock stable. To go for sure heaven has to run for at least 4 hours without crashes or artifacts.
How high is your power level while runnimg heaven (avg & peak)?

sorry for late reply. I do not subscribe this thread on instant notifications.

I do not run Heaven, it puts a weak load on GPU. 3dmark11 is far stronger and much better for detecting core speed oscillation under load (Test#1 is enough for it). my max TDP never went above 108.x% with a setting of 112% Power target. it's a very good BIOS thanks to the vmod. I use GPU-Z sensor's tab to check for MAX TDP after each benchmark run.

Last night I was balancing the core vs mem speeds and seems I found a few working combinations, used 3dmark11 scores to find the best optimal ones (as some higher clock combinations were giving me lower scores actually than lower clock combos).

so far this is the highest stable I can get, hitting nearly 10200 points in 3dmark (with 3770K clocked at 4.7Hz and 16GB ram @ 2000MHz), going by memory, if I am not wrong the best settings were +98core offset (1300MHz actual) with memory running +425 offset (forgot the clock, probably around 3430MHz).
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4140877

at same time my former clocks, +100/+395 (1302/3400) was producing around 10150 points in 3dmark11. so far I was unsuccessful in beating my own record of 10199.

increasing memory speed further up (even with lowered core), and I went as high as +500, always produced lower scores and sometimes even mediocre results. interestingly I have never ever seen any artifacts and every time if something went bad it was the core crash (driver crash or 3dmark11 crash). makes sense since increasing memory speed was taking the balance off the core at same time.

it seems that on this BIOS I cannot run memory at same high clock as on stock BIOS, because the stability or performance of CORE suffers, not a problem though, still very happy with it biggrin.gif

@HardwareDecoder I have still yet to have one personally even at something like 1600 lol. My drivers just crash when I open heaven or anything like that.

@feniks What 670 do you have? I run mine personally at +620 any higher and I get black where everything is on the screen and can only see shadows blinksmiley.gif weird I know lol. I also did not loose anything on my memory when going from stock to modded, possibly it was not 100% stable on stock?

count your self lucky having an RSOD is way scarier than a BSOD since RSOD gives you 0 info other than OH *****

EVGA 670 reference vanilla here.

on stock BIOS the max I could achieve (stable) was +149/+564 (1246core/3571mem) @ 122% taget max, resulting in below ~9750 points in 3dmark11.
memory alone (0 core offset) I was able to push to +600 max without artifacting, when combining it togetehr with core offset I needed to compromise.
