Nvidia Titan Faulty? - Page 4

post #31 of 36
make sure you reflash the ORIGINAL bios it had before hand, otherwise you will be paying for the return shipping of the same card :/

The plot thickens!

Upon flashing to RR09SS (which set the mem clock to 6008), I decided to overclock the memory back to the Zotac value of 6608. Lo and behold, the scene in 3DMark11 where I was getting loads of artifacts was now clean! The scene in question was Demo 1. No artifacts at all!

So it appears the card can hit 6608 and be "stable", but it takes an increased TDP as the RR09SS set the draw to 300W in normal and boost mode.

However, this memory OC of 10% only increased my overall 3DMark11 Extreme score by 50 points, so not really worth it.

Also, upon actually looking at all of the test scenes, it appears that while Demo 1 became clean of artifacts, there were some artifacting in Benchmark Test 1, which is not a scene I had ever stared at before. So 6608 is not 100% stable. However, the same scene was artifact free at mem clock 6550. So somewhere between 6550 and 6608 is the breaking point (with these BIOS).

So this is a card which can easily boost up to 1072 core, and OC to 6550 mem. At those values, it is stable and artifact free in every single 3DMark11 scene. That's not too shabby. I haven't browsed the entire Titan Owner's Thread, but it seems most people's memory clock is topping out at around 6400 - 6500. A select few are getting 6600+.

I am beginning to think that maybe I shouldn't RMA the card after all, as the hardware on this card is solid, it's just the stock vBIOS which are crap.

I should point out that these RR09SS BIOS do NOT raise the vcore at all. They simply raise the TDP def and max to 300W instead of 265. I am not sure if mathematically this requires an increase to vcore, but in all of these tests with RR09SS, GPU-Z reports the voltage topping out at 1.162 which is the reference default.

just how much performance boosts to peopl ACTUALLY get out of overclocking a titan?

I mean unless its 10Fps or more in a few games, or a few hundred points on a benchmark, to me its not worth it lol.

Default boost is 876 MHz, many people can get 1100MHz out of it, some even 1200MHz. So that roughly translates to a 25%-37% increase in performance, even more if you overclock the memory too. You would be absolutely crazy not to OC it.

Glad you have it looking better OP. The stock bios are junk and make the card do a bunch of crazy stuff.

My Titans do 1127 at 1.62V and like 500ish on memory. The memory OC still seems useless to me. It gave no fps gain in games and just like OP said maybe 50 points in 3Dmark. It also raises power usage and heat. I saw a small benefit from mem OC on my 670s but even then it was like 2-3fps and 200 points.

In regards to which brand if you get a refund i would say EVGA, when i had an RMA they did not want to test anything on it they simply sent me a new one at the very start of the RMA and had me mail the bad card no questions asked. they said my satisfaction was first cause i said i didnt want to be waiting weeks for my new card so that is when they took my word for it not working properly and just sent me a new card.
