Help pushing GTX 680?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right now

My set up... on my cards



I have a Seasonic 1000w PSU

CPU: 2500k @ 4.5GHz Liquid Cooled
MOBO:Sabertooth z77
RAM: Corsair Veng 1866MT/s 4x4G = 16G
SSD: Corsair Force Series 3 x2 RAID 0
GPU: GTX 680 SLI +SC Edition Liquid Cooled

I need some help trying to push this harder. (with out Destroying it)
But everytime i try to push past GPU Clock +100MHz I will black screen and crash when gaming... or benching
Am I doing something wrong? I slowly built up to this set and trying to figure out what I am doing wrong.

And Right now It is VERY stable and runs Great!
But I am also running my system Res at 6000x1080 for battlefield. (bezel Correction)
Thank you FOr any and all help.

Maybe that's the chip's limit , see i can do 1260ish stable on air with my card running in the mids 60's in temps and still got a lot of headroom , i guess i got lucky , it's a lottery with these cards , whether air cooled or watercooled graduated.gif

Also increasing power target helps. It I believe allows the card headroom when it needs it past stock voltage. 100% being stock. Increasing voltage I almost never use since the card ramps itself up when performing, all changing voltage manually does is affect how it runs idle. I would go to 120 or so and increase a tiny bit and test.

I use MSI AB though but they work about the same. Nvidia doesn't like getting stiffed with returned cards they can't prove are over clocked so they actually volt lock the card pretty conservative so I wouldn't be super worried about crankin it a bit. Apparently AMD GPUs are not volt locked but I've only ever used Nvidia so couldn't tell you for sure.
