Sorry, I missed that.

What I have found is if I lower the mem clock a tad, I can raise my core clocks without needing to raise my volts... robbing Peter to pay Paul, so to speak.

Alright guys..dissapointing news, it seems like I will not be able to hit the 1000mhz that I wanted to get. Very dissapointing for me.

I got capped out at 980mhz at 1062v. I was running heaven and hit a max temp of 80c. Again my room is very hot at the moment because of the summer, once fall/winter hits the temps will probably go lower by about 5-10 degrees.

I tried testing 1000mhz but it kept crashing. I went up as high as the 1112v but my screen went black and I had to do a restart. The temps was pretty high at around 85c. I stopped testing it at that point as I really don't want to go more then 1112v, it seems to much for me at the moment because my computer gets very hot in the summer. I'm currently idling at 36c at 980mhz.

Anyways how did I do guys? Should I be content with these results? I still don't know if I should try raising the memory clock or not, but at this point it doesn't seem like it will be stable with my volts.


My heaven score

Nice! 980mhz is definitely acceptable, only 20mhz off from the mythic score! But you're saying you haven't overclocked the memory at all? Even at 1.062v there is plenty of headroom to overclock the memory. I don't understand why people here are saying overclocking the memory is bad/dangerous/shortens card life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with overclocking ANY cards memory. I'd say get to overclocking that memory! post-flame-small.gif

It's not really just about heat, overclocking memory on GPU's is where issues can arise in the future. What you think is a stable overclock now could eventually turn into an artifacting mess. And in some cases the memory is actually damaged from high stress and will then artifact at stock clocks. And this is without any kind of voltage adjustments.....volt adjustments just bring the inevitable sooner.

People may not believe in what i'm saying but trust me, overclocking GPU memory is just setting yourself up for trouble in the future. The GPU core you can usually get away with, but the memory is very sensitive to stress and could bite you later down the road. I've had several cards where i overclocked in the past and they just died suddenly or artifacted at stock as a result of 24/7 overclocks on them. And this was within 4 to 6months of purchase...

and he seems to know what he's talking about, so I'm just going to avoid messing with the memory.

Can anyone else confirm this? lol

Anyways, it seems like the temps are the problem and this is why I can't get a higher overclock, I put on my ac and seemed to get a stable overclock of 990mhz and a shader clock of 2200 at 1.075v. This seems pretty good right? Should I even have these overclocks 24/7?

You card should downclock if you are not in a 3d application, so keeping an overclock 24/7 doesn't matter. Make sure you are on adaptive power usage in the Nvidia control panel.
What I prefer to do is to set two profiles, one overclocked and overvotled for intensive games and one much less overclocked but downvolted, for applications that you can max out without 100% GPU usage at stock settings.

What case are you using OP? It makes a big difference, if you're using an old crappy case like me, you won't be able to get very high OCs. I.e. When I had it OC'd to 950MHz it was reaching 95 degrees celsius in the OCCT stability tester, this was NOT acceptable so I just lowered the clock all the way down to 900MHz. When I get my new build later this year I'll hopefully be able to reach 1GHz or very close to. smile.gif

Hey Azzur and Harrywang, dont forget to setup Rigbuilder, so we know what gear you have smile.gif

Or you could just add a ton of fans to the case.
