You should never expect any overclock......

What you get is based on pure luck.

thanks but how about the thing when the voltage drops to stock under 99% load

^normal

I have returned poor clockers before...only to Frys cause they were cool with it.


Right now I'm up to 1200/1180 on stock bios, so I'm extremely happy with them.

I suggest both of you read through this before a mod does some damage...

As for the idle clocks. See if you have anything running on your desktop, a widget, browser, some monitoring programs. I've noticed even my Intel Turbo widget will prevent it from idling properly.

yes freezing and then recovering and continuing..

for the rest there is nothing running so thats strange

Try these steps in this order.

Reinstall your nvidia drivers. I use the 314 whql ones right now because the new ones are messing with my bf3.
Get ccleaner and clean your registry.
Reboot
Get Kepler bios Tweaker 1.24 or 1.25.
Load your stock bios.
Set boost table and boost limit to 1293. (this part is really optional but go for it biggrin.gif)
On the power control left side set gpu energy consumption limit (def mW) to 130000 and the max mW to 143500. Should be 10% difference just like stock.
Save new bios
Flash new bios.
Reboot
Increase power target to 110%
Run Heaven without OC.

If it makes it through then start OCing again. =)
