GTX 600 Series Unlocked Voltage Bios' downloads and tools. - Page 132

You need to find your stable overclock from the 1202 starting point going upward. That new number will then be your stable overclock, set.

I also noticed that the current nvidia drivers (all R300) sometimes lockup and refuse to boost under load or downclock at idle ... reinstalling the driver fixes it ... very annoying problem ... I have it all the time every few days no matter which GPU BIOS I use (I have 3 to choose from).

That sounds like your bios\OC settings... Downclock at idle - Its always done that, thats the slrt of kepler boost thing. Locking up under load - The card is pushing higher than it can be able to run.

This flavor of Galaxy 670 has the reference 680 PCB. Check this thread and notice that you can snag it for $338.99.

Can anyone that has scoured this thread tell me what are the odds are that we can flash a bios or otherwise improve the overclocking on this card?

no OC, it does that at stock clocks as well (eventually, e.g. after a week). driver issues as far as I can see ...

Well if its not OCd, why do you have three different BIOS defaults?

Drivers do not control your card speed, and your card locking up under load means it cant handle what speed it is set to, which is either done by a manual OC, or the factory settings.

Edit:
What card do you have? Your sig rig shows 570s, but this is for 670s.

Im not worried about it right now.. when my other 680 gets back from rma ill address the issue.

stock/factory GPU BIOS, vendor updated BIOS and vmodded BIOS, all suffer from same issue.
sorry, my sig is outdated, will fix it soon. I have an EVGA GTX 670 reference card.

what do you mean the drivers do not control the card speed??? of course they do! you overclock it using a software app running in Windows environment which relies on the software driver to contact the hardware (which does the rest auto-magically) ... I haven't said anything about card locking up, only the core clock speeds get stuck at certain values (e.g. stock unboosted speed and it won't go down, sometimes also refusing to go up from there - no crashes or errors of any kind tho).

There is plenty more people with same issue, at least in EVGA forums.
yeah, I'm not much worried about it either as the card runs fine ... it's just annoying ... and it ALWAYS go away after I re-install the nvidia driver. it could be a mix of issues (a conflict) between the driver vs GPU BIOS vs MB BIOS ... time will tell.

Well, what I meant by my previous statement is that the factory\stock speed is set by the factory BIOS from the manufacturer.

I realize a mistake I have made though; You said the driver was locking up. I read that as the card locking up under load. My bad!

Your situation sounds very odd....Maybe something to do with how the BIOS is talking with the drivers. I dont know.

I flashed my gigabyte card but I cant go above 1230. The driver keeps crashing afterwards, is that normal?
