So, I have a quick question...how are you guys getting /seeing your ASIC scores?

What V mV should I start off for over clocking my 290x? In MSI AB I can hit 1110/1325 with no voltage increase, but power slider is at +50, ULPS is off. I'm on water cooling and temps are fine on core and VRAM 1 &2.

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Right-Click on the upper left hand corner of the GPU-Z window, and choose "Read ASIC Quality".

 

VRM, not VRAM.  Probably just a typo, but they are very different things :)

 

Personally I add mV in small increments, around 10mV each time and see how far you can go.  This way you can find the 'sweet spot' blend of volts, clocks and temps.  When you get artifacting, tears, flickers ETC you know it's time for more voltage.

 

Only increase core clock at first, it is far more important than RAM speeds on these cards.  This will also reduce confusion of wondering if the core clock, or RAM clock, is causing your instability.

 

Too high of a core clock, or not enough voltage, always gave me artifacting, tearing, or screen flickering.  Pushing RAM too far was nearly always black screens or lockups.

 

Keep the power limit at +50

 

Force Constant Voltage in Trixx/AfterBurner

 

VRM1 is the temp to watch most closely, once you're in the ballpark of 80-90C is when you need to be concerned.  If temps get too high on the VRM1 then thermal pad upgrades can help drastically;  Check link in my sig for info.

 

Hopefully you have a champ OCer like mine :D

I have same/similar card depending on if you have BE or not.  To get to 1100 without voltage is a good sign so far. 

 

Best of luck to you :thumbsups

21578 graphics at 1315/1700? The 290 is pretty close to the 290x, at 1275/1678 I'm at 21598 graphics score...

I've been wondering this for the longest time. So apparently my ASUS card, the one that has the highest tendency to crash has the best ASIC.

Overall, looks like I have bad luck
79.5
79.8
76.5


awww. if only I didn't kill the VRMs(dropped a tiny heatsync right over the backside of the VRMs) on my old card. I sure that card had a killer ASIC value.

Please explain I see 2 x 290X and 2 x 8 pin adapters.

I think 75+ is above average and close to 80 is great?
ive seen alot of 290s in the 60s

My asic quality is 83.9 but i could only do 1040MHz core before needing to increase voltage....

it could be 14 driver. your graphics score should be over 13K.

my bad. your score is right on.
