Which of those should I tinker?
If it is power limit then it reduces speed/voltage and you can see it in afterburner or some other monitor. Easy way to reproduce would be choking card with reducing 5-th (pcie power) to 30/55/60 or set 8-th (total power) to 100/110/120 and then running heaven... should be nice and power limited wink.gif
Furmark etc. should be power limited with default power settings too, if not, then you are very far from power limits in games.
But power-related voltage or power supply problems? No way to know for sure except hooking some equipment to card and monitor voltage while in operation etc...

For gaming would change nothing if not limited (except 5-th to 75). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Told before what settings i'm running etc, had almost all at 300 some time, except for 90W ones (raised to 100 for testing etc) and pci-e... Many probably running all of them 600, 900 or so, and some with disabled or halved power limiting... That was the easiest way for me because soldering iron is my friend, but i like stuff like power monitoring and limiting too, so i chose hard (learning) way... No signs having cards failing at 1,212V during my searches. 1&3 25/280/280, 5-th 30/80/100, 8&9 100/300/300 if you want to be very sure about eliminating even slight throttle in games probably, given that you clock higher... But i would leave afterburner logging and play most demanding game you have first and then see if you even have any problems with them... if clockspeed is flat at highest (like a picture i showed earlier) then if you really still want to add something, then +10 to +20 to each default mentioned (8-th from 100/250/280 to 100/260/280 etc.), otherwise would leave them as they are for safety reasons.

if any one wants to use my extended screenshots to make a tutorial go for it (i did screenshot merging in gimp)

the second line is where you will start adjusting your voltage. only adjust the max value which is the slider on the right. after you find a value to set as the max value that you are stable at you may adjust p00's max slider to match that voltage to set that as a fixed voltage for the card. btw to zoom into your pics click on the pic and when it pops up click original under the pic and it will open a page where you can zoom wherever you want to.

don't mess with PP02? it is just it matches PP0
should i work with increments of .5, .1, 5, 10, 50. what would be a safe limit given temps are safe, i know my CPU's Vcore has a safe limit of ~1.5 V anything more caries a but higher risk
i don't want to up the temps too much for the sake of fan noise, i am sure the cooler can handle any voltage a softmod can dish out, but the fan noise is another
if i set the min fan % to 33 (default is 30) will the speed go up 3% across the board for for all temps or just start at 33%
be nice if the bios had a fan control table i could edit, maybe that will be in 1.28

the fan has an auto-defined curve you can customize in a overclocking program like evga precision x or msi afterburner. i would say that if you adjust the voltages forward one time stop there test it then continue if it works as some cards dont like having the max set over 1187 but 1212 is the max your controller will allow so you should be safe for the most part barring temps and strain and the potential normal failures that could arise from a bad chip. as of now you dont have to alter p02 for now as if its unstable then if you stop benching or stability testing fast enough then it will drop to the p02 stage which will be in stock. once you find a point that is stable and comfortable then you can move it as you know its perfect. but for now leave it. just make sure you make a fan profile so you can be sure you are safe tempswise.  you wont get hot much till you get near 1212 really but its better to do it early so you dont forget to do it later.

ok, i get it P00 controls the max voltage a software OC can give it while P02 controls the stock config
wait a min i think i get it
row 2 is the limit software can OC to
P00 is the current OC level via software, essentially a temp value for software to control, setting this makes a default OC
P02 is stock fallback that is used if the driver crashes from a unstable OC,setting this makes a OC stock

so for now set row 2 to 1150 - 1175
then i should be able to test higher OCs in evga precision and have a chance of stable
did i get that right? may have over simplified it a bit, but that is the just of it

yes and no. yes the in a way row 2 affects what software can oc to but it is the limit that the card follows mainly with or without software. no it is not a software control voltage it is on the firmware level by bios the voltage control and the p-states control different power states. the card has 4 different power states which go in order from highest state(the performance state) p00 to lowest(the powersaving state as well as the boot time state as your gpu will boot in this state) p08. sometimes it might boot in a higher state but only like in the p05 state but the way i am having you do it while searching for stability is modifying the highest power state and letting the rest stay stock till we find that point of stability. then we will modify the second power state. the other 2 should stay low for boot states and low power states so that they will boot as defined and there will never be a need to change those as the point of those is to save power and and if your card can only stay stable for a time and your tests didn't reveal this then at least it will be able to take a break in between all the voltage surging. also a slick way to do this is oc in a oc'ing software by raising the power limit instead of controlling the voltage so the card can request what is needed. then you can raise the core clock or the mem clock. in your case if this is for mining then raise the core clock but not the mem clock. first though see if it boosts and if it does how high does it boost.

I was using mining as a way to get a max load temp beyond heaven's load levels
i have tried mining takes way too long, lol
i think i mined about 1usd of litecoin in a couple days (non-continuous)

thanks for the explanation
line 1 is a absolute limit, i don't think i want to push this so hard i have to change that
line 2 is OC voltage limit
P0 is stable boost power limit
P2 is base clock (980MHz reference speed, on the 650 ti boost)
all the CLK ## values are the clock speeds indicated in the boost table

I know the card's board was designed for over-clocking, just a question of what the chip can handle, hopefully it is not a dud

if i can get a 1.3GHz boost on linux i will stop there, i know i can get 1254MHz boost stable as is on windows, so it is not too much of a stretch
only able to get 1215 on linux
now that i know this maybe if i raise P00 to a 1150 limit i could get 1254Mhz on linux
i have to use evga precision to get +39MHz, so i guess i am using over the 1025mv limit on P00 but less than or equal to 1150mv

so 1.3GHz boost or 1215mw what ever comes 1st, unless i get very impressive clocks for small voltage values

mainly want to reduce lag spikes (high point black activity in fps)

i will change row 2 max to 1175 in a 7-14 hours after i get sleep and see what i can get in a OC
post #7338 of 7931
Anyone can help me unlock my second 670 pe/oc to where it doesn't throttle once it reaches 114% power?

I don't know how to upload the bios here but I have the original one. I've tried everything from using the galaxy bios to unlocking myself. So maybe someone will have better luck.

ok you are on the right track now when you find a stable point boot into linux as well and test it and see if it is stable also if you want to use these clocks in linux you will have to set them in bios and not in a oc software.

zip the file and then click the paperclip in the chat box and it will allow you to upload zip files and i will try somethings cand i will also send you the original bios back

Ok just u/l the file. Btw when I tried the online bios editor it said powerlimit unknown. Don't have that issue with my first 670 pe/oc card.
