Finally got my evga superclocked signature. Please add me. I haven't added it to my computer yet as I have to remove my 680's from my loop. It's going to suck to go back to air for a little while. I have no airflow in my case at all, everything is underwater. This really is a beautiful card.

In my case, there is nothing specifically limiting my card from running on the pre-set boost without driver crash (anything over+150 induces driver reset.)

When the driver resets:

The avg-power usage over the span of the test fluctuates between 40-70 percent power usage
card temps are in the 50's with manual fan at 63% (low 30's at stock@63%, high 20s stock with fan at 70%)
mem boost zero
Core boost - anything past 150 crashes - no matter what voltage boost used (0-37)
Relatively minor down-clocking through the length of the test - if at all. (1 or two bins e.g. 1149 down to 1137)
Never any artifacting

tested v-sync off, or adaptive.
card temperature profile set to maximum performance.

I've tested Power targets and temp targets at different settings. I thought maybe something was spiking out of bounds so tried matching the power targets to what the avg of the card was doing in order to downclock it if necessary, but that didn't seem to work.

There is nothing that sticks out that I see as a limiting factor, other than hitting some internal TDP power boundry that is hard coded in the bios (someone mentioned they saw bios strings for 250 somewhere in the first 100 pages of this thread)

What I'd be curious to know is - do you all feel a relatively low power usage card is considered a good one, or a bad one?

So far from what I can tell, it's a new boost 1.0 algorithm that includes fanspeed in the TDP calculation - and when you use a high manual fan your card downclocks substantially.


So basically when I want to do an insane 3dmark run with manual fan, I can't. I have to let the card cook, it's very annoying. Right now the MSI lightning LN2 BIOS locks out all of the other throttle stuff, so I do have that on my side....but 70% manual fan overrides everything and drops my clocks to 1020mhz. Really, really stupid "feature" of this new driver.mad.gif

Honestly, that sounds more like a glitch than something that was done on purpose. There is no reason to change the behavior to throttle the card because of the fan speed, and no reason why it would immediately throttle allt he way down to 1020 even if it did (instead of the normal 13MHz throttle). If it happens with a WHQL driver, though...

I think Nvidia is taking fan speed as one of the things that controls GPU Boost 2.0.

If you watch the video on PCPer the Nv rep makes it very clear over and over that they are going for great acoustics.

So it only makes sense that if your fan goes up they need to downclock the card to meet those acoustics. Thats why I think when you guys up the fan speed it downclocks. I dont think its the fan pulling that much power. Just looking at my Corsair AF120 Quiets they only use 2.3 Watts.

They probably just need to allow you to disable the fan speed in the GPU boost calculations and let it go by strictly temp and power. I think now they are using Temp, Power, and Fan Speed.

Just an update....Water Leak test has been completed. I bleed and leak tested since 11pm last night till around 10am this morning and no issues with leaks and got a lot of air bubbles out of the loop. Took the time to add a drain port this time to my loop. Cards look sexy as hell with the water blocks on them. Just completed plugging everything back into the power supply, shot the entire case with compressed air and wiped it all down. Took some nice pics that I will post later.

Just moved the rig next to my HDTV and started her up and currently re-installing drivers and going through some system maintenance. I should have some initial information shortly, but looking good so far.

BTW if you really want to test out, SimCity 2013 is very graphics intensive btw biggrin.gif

I won't even have the rest of my FrozenCPU order in until tomorrow, then I will have to tear down my current loop and put it all back together. Using the time to thoroughly bench my CF 7970's for comparison when I get the Titans up and running. Done all the synthetics plus the Crysis and BF3 benches so far. Still have Crysis 3, MOH Warfighter, FC3, and Metro 2033 to go for CF testing then all of it over again with a single 7970. This crap just takes so much time!

When I track my blocks there's been no update since Monday night, hopefully the big storm hasn't messed with my shipping. frown.gif
