I have got some stability issues that i would like to talk to you about
so here comes a wall of text
First of all i have a little question, when i push the card with my overclocking, and i have a crash sometimes my card just underclocks to 575MHz and no power consumption at all, like 5-15%. and whatever i do, i can't reset the card at all. Only thing that helps is to restart the computer. but it sucks to do this every time i get into an unstable area. Also this is not only when the card crashes, but also if i just start firestrike, it can in the meantime have underclocked itself.
okay, but here is my real issue:I have the following setup:
CPU: I5 2500k 4.7GHz
MOBO: MSI Mpower z77 1155 socket.
Graphiccard: MSI gtx 780 Lightning
RAM: 16GB corsair vengeance 1600MHz CL9
Cooling: H80 watercooling for CPU
PSU: Corsair TX 850W
Okay, so my card has 2 bios, the normal stock bios, and the Skyn3t LN2 rev.4 Hynix BIOS. i have set a goal for myself, i want to push this card to 10.000 score in firestrike, and right now i got a max of 9876 points.
But with the LN2 skyn3t bios, i can only achive something around 9500.This i don't understand
Because the core clock frequency is like 1200MHz on the LN2 and in the stock normal bios i can only push the card to max of 1135MHz. And i don't even know why my clocks is so low in the first place. The card doesn't get high temps at all. 70 or so max. and is unstable in every thinkable way. whenever i try to take a Firestrike test, the card can sometimes get though with a low clock, and then the test after it crashes or underclocks like 10 sec into the test.I have got 75.9% ASIC
The stock bios is running on this:
+140MHz core clock
The second bios: (skyn3t LN2)
+200MHz (unstable like hell, no artifacts, card doesn't get hot at all, sometimes firestrike just crashes)
+250MHz memory clockThis is what i can give you atm that i thoink you might want to know. im in LN2 here:
and a comparison from my 3Dmark firestrike tests is like this from the two different bios:
Please help me sort out my problem, i have overclocked CPU's for a while but started with this Lightning for GPU overclocking.
Please help me find out why i haven't reached 10000 with the LN2 bios when i can reach 9876 with the stock bios, and please help me sort out why the clock isen't stable at all.
Best regards Noddy;)
