Edit: Seems my maximum settings are this:
Core Voltage: +62
TL: 90 (prioritized)
Core Clock: +325
Memory Clock: +500 (pretty low right?)
Fan speed: 78 (While running heaven, set on auto, and using fan curve)
Pic of GPU-Z while running Heaven: (not showing in picture: VDDC Current 77A, VDDC Power 90W, VRM Temps: 84C)
Is this the maximum I can go? Starting to get artifacts now in heaven, and when tryed memory clock 550 the computer freezed and restarted. Have seen people get up to 7600Mhz on memory. So I guess +500 is kind of low?
Can I do some AB tweak to increase voltage? Or do I need to do that leading thing in the video (which I will not even try lol). Because my temps are at 72 only, so I guess I could have been cranking up the voltage a little bit more.
Clearly you need to do some reading!
Here are some of my articles:About PT/TDPThe PT is the increase of TDP (thermal design power) which is determined by the chips maker (GK110 =250W) but this is not a fixed value, refers to the maximum amount of power the cooling system, in this case a chip, is required to dissipate. The TDP is typically not the most power the chip could ever draw, but the maximum power that it would draw when running "real applications". This ensures the chip will be able to handle essentially all applications without exceeding its thermal envelope, or requiring a cooling system for the maximum theoretical power.
"TDP is meant to be the wattage of the processor at load. I say "wattage" because it is unclear if this is meant to correspond most immediately to how much power is consumed in watts, or how much heat is produced in watts, but as near as I can tell the TDP is pretty much meant to indicate both" GL
(where C is capacitance, f is frequency and V is voltage)
Now, you dont have to make complicated calculus or anything like that because you have this chip here:
It monitors real-time voltage and power draw and its where AB gets its reading from the VRM´s!
Stock bios come with 250W TDP (AKA PT) so when its at 100% you will have 250W of power draw, if you increase it to the max stock 106% youll get: 250x106%=265W
The same is with modded 300/400/500W bios what you see in AB or precisionX is the percentage above what you set!
Ex: with a 500W bios (Slider set to maximum of course) you see 60% usage, this equals to: 500x60%=300W
YOU CAN DIRECTLY CONTROL TDP WITH THE SLIDER!
Now, why has AB a 300% slider while PrecisionX uses 200% for the same bios with the same PT?
Well, AB and precision have different interfaces so the readings are different for the same thing, just keep in mind the base TDP value and make your calculations from there
It doesnt matter what the % slider is in any program, just increase it if you having stutters or frame drops and when making calculations always make them from the base TDP:
aW x b% = cW (a= bios base TDP, b= OSD TDP, c= aproximate power draw)about memory:Generally speaking GDDR5 runs at a clock frequency of around 1000MHz up to around 1750MHz. GDDR5 is what we call "quad pumped" meaning that within one clockcycle it can do 4 data transfers. This creates a lot of confusion because sometimes graphics card specifications list what is called the "datarate" or "effective clockrate" of the memory which is actuall 4x the real clockspeed. To make matters worse, for whatever reason some vendors are listing double the clockrate which is odd because there is nothing on your videocard that runs at that speed.
To clear the confusion somewhat:
- If the memory speed listed is between 1000MHz and 1750MHz what's listed is the real clockspeed, meaning that the datarate is 4x this value.
- If the memory speed listed is between 2000MHz and 3500MHz what's listed is meaningless but most likely the datarate is twice this value
- If the memory speed listed is 4000MHz and over what is listed is not the clockspeed but the datarate.
.These figures are valid for GDDR5 only so if the card uses another memory type than GDDR5 you cannot use this list. For the purposes of comparing it's easiest to determine the datarate (also called effective memory clock)
So your 500mhz Oc is not so shabby after all huh?
You can up the voltage all the way in AB or Precision if you use it, at this moment there is no soft voltage mod for your card unless the hard mod i sent you by PM!
But in the near there might be some news coming about voltage unlock!

Some VRM's components have a maximum operating temperature of 85C, they withstand more heat but the optimum efficiency is attained at 85C or less!

As long as your memory bandwidth is enough you wont see much unless the program have memory intense demand like Valley! Normally heavy OC will grant you 5-9 FPS, some particular cases more of course depending on the application!
If you use AA high levels in your games you might see a benefit in OC by reducing stutters, i see it but in tri-monitor as some games seem more fpuid but again i have 120hz monitors!
You always had my OC guide in the OP and in my SIG: OCCAMRAZOR ADVANCED GK110 OC GUIDE
