After almost a year of following this thread as a guest, I've joined the club at last!
. I have to give it to you guys this is the most mature and most helpful forum I've come across(and I'm on a lot of them).
I've been trying to eek the most out of my 770 with tips from you guys, but now I'm hitting the limit it seems. The maximum stable I get on my ACX 770 on is +80 on core and +200 on memory with voltage of 1.212V. This gives me a max boost clock of 1280Mhz, stable for my other games but causes regular TDRs on Far Cry 3 fully maxed with 4x MSAA. The TDRs show up after about 20-30 minutes, sometimes longer. However I get much smoother and consistent fps with this OC in FC3, it's a joy to play. Bumping it down to +78 on core reduces boost to 1267Mhz which doesn't crash Far Cry 3, but gameplay is noticeably choppy especially in areas with lots of trees. I use an aggressive fan profile in Precision X so temps stay below 72°C at all times so I don't have temp issues(I live in a tropical country).
I'd like to know if I can get a higher overclock stable for the demanding games especially since the reason I bled almost $2000 for the rig was for the upcoming GTA V(add Far Cry 4 and Arham Knight to that list) I can't afford to have my rig grow old on me even before I get that game. I read about the afterburner mod and bios tweaking in this forum, what would you guys suggest? My limitations are I can't RMA my card from my and current location(costs will be prohibitive) also watercooling isn't in my budget right now. I just wish I could make 1280Mhz or even 1291Mhz completely stable with temps under control, that would be enough for me right now.Edited by abe2g14 - 7/13/14 at 4:47am
