So I'm going to need a new CPU as soon as possible.... my i5-2500 is holding back the Titan big time. I turned on my OSD and found out that the highest usage I have is in 3Dmark11 and it barely hits 89%. I'm trying to hold out until haswell gets here but I might have to snag a 2500k or something before then.

If you can get a cheap 2500k/2600k and clock it to 4.5(most do it with ease) you should be fine.

I was waiting for Haswell too but the gains don't really grab me at the moment. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. Am waiting to see what IB-E does now. Kind of wish I'd kept X58 for a bit longer but I had an itch and SB-E hadn't been released then smile.gif

Yeah, I'm running my backup machine that was supposed to go to my dad to replace his C2D rig. Basically the motherboard and CPU are the only things I'm not keeping, everything else is new. But I have a 2500 non-k and a Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H which is really crappy, no heatsink on the VRM's and its not a B3 stepping board although it hasn't shown any signs of SATA port problems.

I managed to get the CPU up to 4236mhz with some BCLK and upping the multi to 41x for all the turbo bins, but it normally runs between 3.9 and 4.1 since its a non-k.

Keep in mind Haswell is a little farther out then first week of June if you plan to wait for C2 stepping to fix the usb3 stuff. Probably retail first part of August.

Are you sure that your 2500 is the culprit?

Running my 2600K stuck at 3.4Ghz (no turbos no nothing, straight 3.4Ghz) i am getting 99% gpu utilization in 3dmark2011.

Haven't checked CPU utilization but i would doubt the extra 2Mb cache and the HT can make a difference at GPU utilization...

PS: you are talking about a signle titan right?

Yes and yes. There isn't much room for anything else to be the culprit. Games are either CPU bound or GPU bound. CPU heavy benches like Valley I see 77-80% usage on the GPU.

okay, where are the expert gtx titan overclockers, i need your opinion gentlemen smile.gif

i got an asus gtx titan, which has a somehow bad asic quality rating 72% mad.gif

anyway i tried to overclock it by maxing all the sliders out; gpu clock, max voltage, power target, temp target . . .

and i used crysis 3 to test my oc and i got a constant 1149mhz on the core most of the time, some times it goes to 1162mhz but that is rare and for a brief period, it throttles back to 1149mhz and stays their and never goes lower which appears to be good, right?

my TDP is 99.6% and would not go higher which annoys me, cz i feel it doesnt go above 99.6% intentionally which in fact if it did maybe it would clock higher, maybe? ( i already set the TDP target to 106% btw)

my max temps hover around 79-82C

be informed that all of that is done using the stock bios and stock fan profile

now is that results good? is my card any good? is my luck good with the u know . . . silicon lottery? or im i unlucky? any recommendations?

before u tell me to flash the bios, i dont feel like flashing it, cz the asus service guys here in Dubai are crazy and would happily use any ridicules reason to refuse ur rma mad.gif

one more thing, why does my max voltage never go above 1.1870 mad.gif i already set the max voltage to 1.212 in asus gpu tweak utility !! maybe that is throttling my max clock too?

With Stock BIOS that is pretty damn good man. The fact that you do not drop below 1149mhz and stays steady means that it is throttling. You will have to run some more test like Unigine Heaven/Valley to be sure and try a few other games. But if you are playing C3 and it stays pretty much solid 1149mhz, then that is a good thing.
As far as the voltage issue, that is luck of the draw on the card. I have 2 cards, one hit's the stock bios max of 1.200v while the other hits 1.187v like yours. It is not a defect or anything and there is no gurantee from the vendors what the max voltage it can hit...so it is what it is. Now if you go with modified BIOS this can and does change, but that is up to you if you want to do that.

I personally have 2 cards that do not throttle, one card hits 1172mhz at 1.200v, the other hits 1150mhz at 1.187v. In SLI one card drops to 1163mhz and the other 1137mhz at the 1.200v/1.187v respectively for each card. So I am pretty happy with that type of jump from stock.
