How much were you throttling?

From what to what?

I'm not too sure but the voltage throttles down to 1.12v for no reason. It doesn't seem to be related to temps or power. I can't even get to 1100mhz reliably in Heaven.

Are you manually setting your fan or letting it go auto? Not saying you should have to lower your fan settings or set to auto but that has made a difference for others on here.

Some people have given their settings many pages back smile.gif

Throttling refers to the GPU clock speeds lowering. There are instances of the Titan downclocking the core GPU speed (throttling) for unknown reasons.

Anyone else planning on returning or exchanging their Titan? I love the cooler and I don't think I should have to install a water block just to keep the throttling under control with even a small 50mhz OC.

Mine just throttled down to 1.112v at stock speeds in borderlands 2.

If you got a reference (not a SC), then 1100mhz or just below, especially in Heaven, is about average. It might not throttle as bad in games, as Heaven seems to be more demanding than many of them. But yeah it's still a beast, and runs silent. 2 qualities that force me to put up with the small throttling wink.gif

Honestly, it sucks. But it's not enough to make me return the cards. It's still a beast either way, and 50mhz isn't exactly a world of a difference when it comes to a game's framerate. Just get a SC'd card, as they all seem to be able to do ~1176mhz. And as you can see from my graphs I posted in this thread, a 1100mhz Titan destroys even a 1411mhz 680 Lightning, let alone an average ~1100mhz 680.

Why not just wait for a fix from Nvidia either a bios update or driver fix?

Got the EK block installed on the card, very straight forward to do if anyone is curious.

It is a shame to not to be using that beautiful heatsink anymore.



So fresh and clean clean



But this block does look pretty awesome on it.





So with this installed on its own 360 with only push fan setup at the moment I am idling at 32C and maxed out at 42C which is nice. The bad news is that it didn't really solve anything, my throttling is still happening and I barely got 30-50mhz more out of my overclock. Also with this thing being watercooled I checked the memory on the back of the card and they are over 50C which I feel is kind of high, maybe that could be what is causing the throttling?

Thanks for the post belement. +rep

Could you hold a fan near the back of the card?

The vsync issue is still one of the top threads on Geforce forums. Thats an issue from GTX680 launch. They may never fix this issue.
