Not to sure on how to join the club.

Added you. And welcome to the club.

I had talked about a OC stability issue i had with my previous Gigabyte 670 Windforce in another thread but I also want to raise the subject here.

 

I believe that OCing stability of a GPU MIGHT be different in different resolutions.

 

I remember having an extremely stable GPU OC with my previous 670 at 1250mhz with my older display. 

 

Every single game ran fine, 3Dmark 11 ran fine, Heaven benchmark ran fine. I did not have any issues with it.

 

However when i made a switch to my current 1440p, and started gaming in 1440p, that 1250mhz OC became unstable and I had to lower it around 1200mhz.

 

Did anyone else experience such a problem?

 

Can stability of an OCed GPU be different in different resolutions? 

 

Could it be something to do with the GPU being more stressed or vram being used more?

Awww, I thought you were following me. sad-smiley-002.gif

Why are you subbed to a club that you can't join yet though? Your monitor is only 1080p right now according to your sig rig.

I suppose this could be true. I've only ever had my 7970 at 2560x1600. So I don't really know for sure. I seem to be just as stable or unstable if I use a lower resolution for stress testing though. So I don't THINK that's the case.

- 2Gb of vram is more then perfect for any SINGLE 1440p/1600p monitor and will run with zero hiccups
- 1GB/1.5GB of vram is good enough to run 1440p/1600p easily, BUT there are the exception of a few games when AA is turned on you will run into a vram cap, so if no AA is on you will run 1440p/1660p fine
**AA is not needed for 1440p/1600p because of the amount of pixels, AA is needed at 1080p**
- Ok now the touchy subject MODS, i am someone who does not care for mods, so all of the above are true and apply to me. for those who decided they like running excessive texture mods in games like skyrim for example, 2GB of vram will get you by with a few decent texture mods on 1440p, not 100% sure about 1600p. for those wanting to run excessive amount of texture mods purchase a 3GB/4GB card and you will have no issue with hitting the vram cap. users using 1GB/1.5GB of vram dont really recommend running texture mods because your will hit the vram cap fairly easily.
- Lastly for those running under 1GB of vram you will be able to run the 1440p/1600p monitors and even game on them as long as ANY texture/shader settings are turned down to low/med settings.
@iARDAs please sticky this, im tired of seeing countless questions on weather the "X" amount of vram will run 1440p/1600p screens.. now they have there answers thumb.gif

 

I added this information on the 2nd post

 

Thanks once again.

I game on a 19inch monitor but sadly it's only at a resolution of 1366x768. My hardware includes an Athlon II x2 250 overclocked to 4Ghz,corsair value select ram 1333mhz overclocked to 1636mhz and an MSI 6770 overclocked to 960/1250. Could you make an exception and add me to your club?smile.gif

I just realized that you asked a question about adaptive vsync to me and I did not respond it lol :)

 

I believe you edited the post after I quoted you.

 

Anyhow. Yes i am using adaptive Vsync and lowing it however i do believe that these drivers have issues and my older 120hz screen and my current 1440p IPS panel are doing some screen tearing at times even when lower than 60fps. Weird I know.

Sometimes I am thinking that maybe at 1250mhz my GPU was not 100% stable and the 1440p helped me to exploit it.

Why am I subbed? Cos I want a 27 inch panel. Look at my sig.

Ahhh man I wish I could but 1440p only. But you are ALWAYS welcome to join the conversations thumb.gif
