How much is my card even worth? It's a 02G-P4-3765-KR http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=02G-P4-3765-KR. Lightly used, never overclocked, and has a backplate installed.[/quote]nice!!

That doesn't sound like a worthwhile expense to me, unless you want your MB and GPU to match colors. I sold my 760s for $220 each on Craigslist. People on the forums offered me. $200 which after fees and shipping is no good, but new 760s are. $230AR so why pay over $200 for a used one.

Keep your current GPU, no need to switch. Save your money for sli.

yeah, at that price I wouldn't sell my card.

Maybe next generation, MSI tongue.gif

Hey all, first post here (mostly due to looking for OC'ing advice). Validation for having the 760: http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/arpy2/ I just need to post the link, right?

Anyway, I got the MSI Hawk GTX 760 and have just built the PC and updated the drivers. Love how the card looks. Yet to test it on pretty much anything, going to try Unigine now and see how it fares. It's paired with the 4670k processor that I have yet to overclock. ASIC score says my card is 66.4%, which seems to be rather mediocre. If I overclock it, will this shorten the life-span of the card? I don't want to be doing that in any noticeable way.

Well, that's all for now. Going to rune some benchmarks! smile.gif

EDIT: Thought you might want a picture:D



EDIT2: Whoops, it's upside down... Oh well, you can see it tongue.gif

EDIT3 - BENCHMARKS:

Did Heaven and Valley, GPU temps (as the in-benchmark said) never went over 64C, so there is a lot headroom for stronger performance, I believe biggrin.gif

Heaven - 8XAA - Tess:Extreme - 32.3fps
Valley - Extreme HD preset - 40.7fps

Is this good for a start?

Hahah, had I not seen the picture refering to Australia a few pages back, I wouldn't have gotten the joke tongue.gif Unfortunately, the image is upside down because I took a picture lazily with my iPad, didn't notice the orientation... Are my scores good?

EDIT: Card seems to always idle at 30C. Is this normal?

Hi, i'm new on this forum.. i would to know if my gigabyte gtx760oc rev.1 can be voltage unlocked !

running at the stock voltage the card reach the 1254mhz with no problem but if i set 1300Mhz the nvidia driver crash and then return to stock frequency ..

I want to try to get higher freq. because i have also a zotac gtx670 with unlocked bios but this card reach max 1200mhz. At this freq. the 670 is a bit better and i want to set the 760 (if possible) to 1300 or higher to get equal or better results.

Can the 760's bios get unlocked ?

sorry for my english......

Heaven crashing could be a result of File corruption. File corruption occurs whenever the information that resides on an HDD is corrupted when it is read and after that point it can't be properly read or used (processed) again. And therefore u must simply uninstall Heaven and re-install it. But it is important to understand it. Corrupted files result in inconsistencies that can easily confound u. smile.gif Slight corruption of files result in not being read when heavily OCed. Major corruption results in files that can't be read when running stock normal speeds. So diagnose with stock speeds. And as u increase speeds realize that maybe corruption is just poking up its' ugly head at u. wink.gif learn to recognize it.

File Corruption 101:
To understand wat causes corruption with files on a hard drive, think of a normal person taking a book off of a shelf then reading some or all of it and they place it back on the shelf. And imagine another person comes along and they too remove the same book from the shelf and read some or all of it and place it back on the shelf. Well, that can go on quite successfully over and over forever and ever, right? And that is the same as information on a Hard drive. It can be read and over and over too. But wat if a drunk individual decided to read that said book? Wat if they took that same book off the shelf and while doing so they fumbled and dropped it causing partial damage to the book's cover. That wouldn't stop anyone from ever reading it, would it? But imagine that the book also had a few of its' pages a little damaged from mishandling it by the drunk person. Well the book would still be legible enough and anyone could still read it, right? But wat if many many drunk people repeatedly read that said book and continually damaged it? Well eventually it would become so difficult to read that nobody could successfully ascertain wat the information on it was. And that is the same as wat sometimes happens when the information on an Hard drive is read by an OCed CPU, GPU, System memory or vRAM. It's like a drunk person messing up a book so badly it can't be read any more. biggrin.gif

So, sry that took so long to explain but u asked.wink.gif and it's best u have a grasp on why files get corrupted. because it happens from normal use and from OCing and must be entered into any and all equations dealing with problem solving anything involving OCing.smile.gif Also think of Furmark as an itty bitty sized book and Heaven like a much larger novel. That's why Furmark survives much more successfully than Heaven benchmark. There's so little to be damaged when it comes to Furmark and so much to be damaged with Heaven benchmark. But if just a small part of Heaven benchmark is damaged u can get funny results from the testing u do with it. So just gradually learn how to recognize file corruption and how to problem solve it. For now just use this Contingency: To uninstall and re-install. But be sure u do so while the Vid card is running at normal clock speeds. After u determine stable speeds they can't hurt anything.

But wat if ur lazy like me and want to expedite the uninstall/ re-install process? Well, just make something called an Installation Directory (Folder) Backup of Heaven benchmark or watever benchmark or even an entire vid Game. Just right click copy and paste. Then if u ever suspect file corruption, rename the existing folder from like "Heaven" to "Heaven_Old". then take the Backup called something like "Heaven - Copy", and rename it to "Heaven". And after u determine the new Heaven folder works delete the Old one. biggrin.gif But sometimes a full uninstall and re-install is necessary because other files that reside elsewhere get corrupted. But most of the time it is the files in the said Program's Installation Directory and only they need be backed up and restored. smile.gif

Start using the Valley benchmark instead. It is much much characteristically less likely to ever corrupt. i think more ppl have adopted it as a result of it being more sable. It still does corrupt sometimes, but just less often than Heaven benchmark. They did a better job making the Valley benchmark because of the experience they gained from making and patching the Heaven benchmark. And Valley is very very COOOL looking and sounding! wink.gif

GL smile.gif
Thank you for that reading material. Very informative. I hate trouble shooing because I'm not really good at it lol. I'll try the uninstall of heaven and just install valley. So do I just use what I found to be my max values before and just try running valley? Or start the entire OC guide process again? If I have to start the entire thing over again, do I run valley after each adjustment? That would take an extremely long time lol. Also, is there any reason why I cannot type in my own settings in msi ab? I tried and it won't let me keep what I typed in. It either adjusts itself up or down. Im using the 3.0.0 beta 15.

You did press enter after typing the desired value, right?

Yes I did. Not sure if it's the version I have or what.
