GTX 670 FTW Overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
The settings i have posted last are my current which still are NOT stable.I'll try some oc from basics tommorow and we shall see. Juraad, yes i've done that and each time i did run heaven, the results were better each time wothout any errors. Only after a period of time things start to get "funky" (e.g when gaming)

all right dude
first of all the card can achieved 1180 MHz for final boost till you reach throttle temp ( to me around 75c) its down for maintain TDP specification

in Quick setting : you should up the power limit to max (( 140%))>> increase the core clock offset 90MHz which i found it the max stable clock for 1263MHz final clock
you can also pump the memory clock for 300 as beginning .

Heaven 4 is so tough to me and always crash .. i use valley edition which is more convenient to me thumb.gif

Adding on, that screnshoot shows 100% power yeah? Well i forgot to press apply before the screenie. D: Normally its on 140, and cheers. Gonna try to base my oc on yours.
post #14 of 22
yupe its 100%

remember you should keep the temp below 71 to avoid throttle .. just up the fan for 80% temporary and get test .

I have found Heaven 4.0 to be the worst indicator of stability out of all games/benches... In fact, I don't use it anymore because it will crash with completely stock settings, but then do fine with a ridiculously over the top overclock, then crash with a normal OC. It's just not indicative of stability.

I was able to get through it at 1490core/7443mem, but then it crashes with 1294core/7120mem? REALLY???


Instead, use 3DMark11 Xtreme preset, Far Cry 3/Crysis 1-2-3/Metro 2033-LL/BL2 (with the settings MAXED OUT including AA, PhysX, etc.... the point is to stress the card, not play the game). This has worked perfectly for me, and I'm only 7 points away from 12,000pts in 3DMark11...with a single 670!

I have actally got the same impression, my first overclock which was good for me, was perfectly stable in Heaven where as soon as i entered Bf3 it crashed durning the first 10 minutes...
post #17 of 22
OK one minute you say it's stable then the next you say it's unstable...

First things first your power target should be at 145% not 100% you should also raise your voltage to maximum. Your memory clock offset is quite low I am sure you can increase that further.
However you should lower your core clock offset until you find stability- this is what will be causing your instability.

If you follow the 670 overclocking guide properly I can see no reason why you would not be able to find your maximum stable overclock. Are you sure you are following each step and not skipping any?

I will also agree with the comments made about Heaven - I have had 100% stable overclocks in Valley that have crashed while running Metro Last Light and I think BF3 too.

Most of my overclocks are stable during the Benchmarks eg. 3Dmark or Heaven but then crash in games so I presume thats due to load and the simple fact that more stuff is being processed. So youre saying that might also be due to drivers?
