throttled clock?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My rig has been clocked from 4 to 4.5ghz. Running a benchmark at 4ghz, I get decent scores. If I run the same benchmark, but at 4.5ghz I get a much lower score. The scenes seem to fly by so fast that the gc can't keep up resulting in lower frame rates.

I'm running a fx8350 - 8 core with a HD7970 ghz ed (slightly ocd) and 16gb kingston clocked at 2133.

any ideas?

Can anyone suggest why a seemingly stable 4 to 4.5ghz oc would simply make benchmark scenes speed up resulting in lower fps? Seems I need to push more voltage into graphics card, but hd7970ghz ed is barely overclockable. Is there a cpu/bios setting that evenly distributes? What am I missing cause I'm sure there's something that would result in the graphics card being able to keep up =/

From your first post the three components you mention shouldn’t have a problem scaling; by the third post you mention that the video card is not a good overclocker, does the cpu scale if you leave the gpu at stock? I would assume you have checked temps and your ps is adequate for the mentioned components.

Really need more information about your system and how you got to 4.5 for and appropriate answer.

thanks for the reply thumb.gif seems I'm getting somewhere with this now..I don't know why but clocking omn the fly through overdrive simply made benchmark scenes fly by resulting in lower fps. Now clocked in bios everything is good biggrin.gif
