Yeah, I went step by step. Been doing this all night trying to figure this out for the first time. Thought I was doing okay while testing Valley, but then things went south when I tested by playing BF4. Here is the basic run down of my previous posts with the main points in bold.

IDK, I feel like that Classified Software Overvoltage Tool may have been messing with my settings, but I'm not sure. That tool is confusing. I open it to see what setting it is at, and it seems to follow right along with precision X I guess. I hit default a couple times, but then I felt that shutting down my pc was the only way to get it to stop intruding...but idk.
Once I shut down my pc to hopefully clear the classified overvoltage too, and then had my card on primary bios and had everything on default, finally...finally I was able to run Valley.
Also, Shadowplay was trying to run while doing this and I eventually turned that off as well.So with that Valley benchmark gave me this:
Platform:Windows 8 (build 9200) 64bit
CPU model:Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz (3500MHz) x4
GPU model:Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 10.18.10.3316/NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 220.127.116.1165 (3072MB) x1
Mode: 1920x1080 fullscreen
That is with anti-aliasing off, and on high.My gpu clock was at 1123, and my voltage was at 1161.
Using the same settings for my gpu and precision x, but changing settings in Valley to Ultra for Quality, and turning on Anti-aliasing to 4x I got:
Mode:1920x1080 4xAA fullscreen
Min FPS: 23.6
Max FPS: 163.2
I'll update when I try to up the gpu settings.

In Precision X I put the power target at 115%, set overvoltage to +38 (my max) and I was able to run Valley and the gpu-z stress test. During those tests, and with only changing the power target and overvoltage my gpu clock went up to 1149 for both Precision X and GPU-Z.
My voltage showed in Precision X as 1200, but I am a little confused as to which category I should verify that with for gpu-z. Is is VDDC, or 12V?
(During these tests VDDC is at 1.172 and 12V is at 12.09-12.14.)
Mode: 1920x1080 4xAA fullscreen
or in 1920x1080 Extreme HD with 8xAA fullscreen I get
Max FPS:128.4Adding +94 to the gpu offset in Precision X my gpu clock shows 1241 both in Precision and the sensors page of gpu-z.
Valley score goes to (with the same Extreme HD settings just above):
Min FPS: 23.4
Max FPS: 134.8

with Valley Extreme HD. I made it through Valley HD a couple times with those but then it started crashing. Without touching the mem offset could not get to 1254MHz, only 1241MHz.
I have been falling ever since though, and fast.
Trying to play BF4 and I keep crashing. Never had this happen before with my card when it was all stock. I just crashed at +81 on gpu, and +75 on mem. I'm not sure what I should lower first. Mem or gpu offset? Guess I'll try with +68 on the gpu and +75 on mem???
Any suggestions? Is mine a dog? Some of these numbers people are throwing around with the stock cooler, yet I can't play BF4 with +81gpu / +75mem.
Any advice would still be appreciated.
Like I said, as high as I could go was +94 with the voltage max out on Precision X, where it showed me 1200 for voltage (not sure how to verify that...is it VDDC in gpu-z?) and 1241 for gpu clock (verified by gpu-z).
When I went to touch the memory everything seemed to fall apart.
I just crashed again while playing BF4 where gpu offset was +68 and mem offset was +75.
Let me try mem offset at +0 (zero) and gpu offset +94 while playing BF4 and see how that goes?
(But I've got like 15 days left for the step up and at this point. IDK, I just wanted to try overclocking the card a little so I could figure out what I should do. I think it would cost me $12 to go to the stock 780ti after shipping.)
Not to derail my quest here with that info.
Any advice for me is certainly appreciated. Thanks.Edited by mphfrom77 - 11/11/13 at 3:40am
