Poopy 670 overclocker, or am I doing it wrong? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
One other thing you can try is changing the Power setting in the Nvidia Control Panel from Adaptive to Prefer Maximum Performance. that may help keep your clock rate a little more constant (it'll still downclock at 70C though).

Well my 670 ftw is only just over a month old, and it does fail after overclocked, but it only really fails after the OC after switching to the newest beta drivers so I am considering rolling back. After the OC though the card is running at 1280 mhz, which seems to be pretty good since I read that most people are trying to get theirs to 1300. When I use default settings though, I don't have a single problem, most of my problems come from having the game paused for an extended length of time, and that is because I have a 19 month old.

rolled back to the 607.13 drivers and all is fine, I would suggest that you do the same.

Well i've managed to hit 64 MHz with GPU clock and Mem Clock 409MHz on stock power target and 1088 voltage, but whenever I try to go 1 MH higher on the GPU clock, my games crash. I've maxed out the power and voltage and it still does the same. Is this as far as my card can go?

Try different drivers. Certain ones would cause crashing with my oc while one is stable stable stable.

Turn up the power target, otherwise you are artificially limiting yourself. What is the actual boost clock under load? +64 for you is going to be different than +64 for someone else, so it is hard to compare just based on that number.

So I've unlocked the fan settings and the power target on my card, so i've set it at 150+ target, 100+ voltage, and set the clock MHz to +74, and I still crash. Does this mean +64 is my limit? mad.gif

The power target and voltage don't do anything for your overclock, all they do is let the card operate at the maximum power (and the voltage change does nothing since the Kepler cards are voltage locked). So if you had +64 before you changed that, chances are you are still going to have +64 afterwards - but your card will run at that full +64 speed more often (because of the power target change). What's your actual boost speed under load? You can check GPU-z (on the monitoring page) or Afterburner while running Heaven to check.
