Right now he custom modding bios for people who send it to him one by one, and they currently unlock
Voltage -> 1.2125v
Fan Speed -> min 0 max 100
Power target -> 150%
and set a higher boost clock/ lock boost.
Thank you but it has been in the OP for like 2 days now wink.gif

We also got boost clocks/voltage lock with the new Precision X! biggrin.gif

Anyway, last night I tried the advice of the guys here to lower core and see if I can increase mem, and lo and behold I was able to increase mem. My question is, for all other GPUs, core clock is more important, but I've been hearing a lot about the mem clock being more important for these cards. And I'm pretty positive I am seeing a lot more FPS gain going the mem clock route. Now I have my OC at core 1205MHz and mem clock at 7000MHz. Basically I gave up 50MHz core for 550MHz mem.
Do you guys think this is alright? Think I can go higher with core to around 1215 but the game crashes after long use so reduced it to 1205. Also saw my GPU bandwidth increase by A LOT with this OC compared to my previous OC. +20GB/s. Just wanna ask your advice if I should lower my mem clock a bit to raise my core clock? Or reduce core clock even more to increase my mem clock? Or am I good with my current 1205/7000 OC?
BTW, this is without volt mod so maybe I'm in the wrong thread lol. But still weighing whether to do the vmod or not. My temps are 70 in full load. Scared of frying my card lol.

Hey Beast. My apologies for being away and not replying to your reply which I requested in the first place. rolleyes.gif

I'm using modded unlocked voltage bios and have boost disabled and my JS is at 1202 3D clocks. Again no boost but downclock's fine. Mem is stock. Temps are fine. Barely hits 70.

To give my own info on your comment, for me also 1220-1235mhz with Mem at 7k is around my limit. So don't be disheartened by your Palit.

I know some other brand cards go at 1280-1300(even some 670's) but I stopped thinking about it after trying EVERY bios I could find. And I mean I tried like 10-15 bios IF I'm not mistaken.

In the end I have found my card's limit and I'm happy with it and keep enjoying it. I wish I could go at 1300+ and get like only 5-10 FPS increase but I got what I paid for and even more!

For you I will try 3DMark 11 at 1205/6500, 1255/7000+(if I can) and finaly at 1205/7000 and I hope we can gather some helpful info from the results.

P.S: Btw the modded bios I'm using never and I mean NEVER caused me any crash anywhere. Nadda. Even with Mem at 7150Mhz.

Yeah, used it. My clocks/voltage were locked. Scary! Immediately rebooted(after unticking K-Boost). biggrin.gif

QUESTION: Does it help in Benchmarks having clocks/voltage locked?

Of course it does! Constant 1300mhz core would rock for benching tongue.gif
I'm eager to try it...

Thanks for this! Thinking if I should try the 1.212v modded bios and maybe try get to at least 1255/7150 or something. I didn't have much time to test and compare fps with different OC settings, but if I have time I'dd definitely try that. Personally I play a single 2 lap map of Dirt 3 and keep fps in mind, then tweak and repeat process. It takes time and I'm feeling 1205-1215boost for core and 7k mem is my limit since the moment I increased my mem clock higher the game crashed immediately lol. IDK if I can increase core by like 5MHz but will try..

So the trick is finding a balance between core/mem and seeing which yields more fps? I like the trade off I made by reducing 50MHz core to get 550MHz mem though. If I'm not mistaken mem clock seems to be giving more fps increase over core because of being able to achieve such high clocks compared to core. Looking forward to doing more testing.

Keep me posted on your OC mate, would like to compare clocks since there are only a few of us Palit users. Saved me $100 compared to EVGA or Asus though so hoping to get the most out of it..

Holy s***. Excuse me. I forgot you are still using stock bios. You SHOULD backup your bios with Zotac's Firestorm and try the bios I'm using!
I can't even go at 1255 in Heaven with my modded ones let alone with the stock one. I can sent you all the necessary files(firestorm and modded bios).

Again your are on stock bios and If I remember I had some "low limits" with the stock bios.

Isn't a balance in almost everything a necessity? wink.gif

Sure thing. Also I got it dirt cheap and way below retail price when it first came out, so in my mind it compensates the "average" overclock. Guess that's what keeps me happy with it. biggrin.gif

Yeah maybe Ima try the modded bios. Would also like to disable boost and keep a constant core clock of as high as I can. Fan I think I'm fine with 85% constant. I think 100% heavily shorten the life span of the fans lol.

Guess 1215/7000 is the sweet spot for me. Gotta test more..Wanna go home! lol

100% fans shorten YOUR life span lol

Modded bios rocks, 1.213v is plenty for pushing your gpu actually...

BTW, you can lock boost frequency with the new Precision X.

Hi!

The Asus GTX680 DC2T Bios doesn't work for me. I get white stripes in Windows. Had to re-flash it with my onboard card. Maybe there is a new revision or something. Anyone the same problem?

Thanks
