post #40271 of 43972
So I installed Trixx instead of afterburner, and now I can bench the card at 1200/1525 with no artifacting, and I get a decent firestrike score, but when I try to play Battlefield 4 using Mantle at those clocks the game freezes and I have to hard restart my PC. The card is at 1200/1525 with +100mv on the core and +50 powerlimit, is there a way to get it stable? I also want to try out 1225 and 1250 for the core, and 1550 and 1575 for the VRAM to see how my cards fair at higher clocks.

You first need to know how high your card can go. By Benching.Gaming will always be clocked lower.

Ok, so I tried undervolting my 290's and I'd like to know if this is normal or how low the average 290 can go at stock clocks.

I was able to drop it to -37mV using MSI AB and ran Project Cars for a good 2 hours totally smooth and problem free. Both cards exhibited about the same temps maybe 1 degree cooler, tough to say as ambient can fluctuate quite a bit where I have my PC.

I now have it set to -44mV and I'm just wondering how low any of you have been able to drop the voltage while maintaining stable stock clocks?

i can't wait to do the same. i wish we can have someone check the power use from the wall after getting a stable and most lowest voltage achievable.

i am really interested 'cause my ups is only good for 900W and planning on putting a car battery to it to power my crossfire.

By the way guys, for those who are into BIOS editing and can read HEX codes biggrin.gif

Memory timings on both have been altered. Same card.

If u edit bios like how i showed earlier , u can UV down to -180mV with stock core clock and memory fully OC'd

Im running my card at 950/1625 -153mV -33% power limit and i get ~3% higher performance than everything @stock

I don't understand how your memory controller is still stable with so little voltage. My card can do 1640mhz memory but only if I give the core 100mv.

Great results btw!

Not really interested in modding the BIOS at this point. I tinkered with BIOS modding a little while back and saw very minor gains vs the time I spent testing and decided it wasn't worth it. Would prefer to see what can be done with just MSI AB. That is pretty cool, none-the-less. thumb.gif

Makes you wonder if each vendor spent more time in R&D in the BIOS with these Hawaii and Grenada GPUs if they could get these things running more efficiently, maybe they wouldn't have received such a bad rep in their early days. Though, the reference coolers were pretty bad anyways. tongue.gif

That's what BIOS modding can do for you. wink.gif Not every card is the same though. Depends on a number of factors, what each card is capable of.

________________

Going to see how much lower I can go on the voltage tonight. I think the reason I'm seeing almost the same temps is because of the way I have Fanspeed setup. I think the cards are actually producing slightly less heat, but the fans are just running slightly slower and maintaining nearly the same temps. I'm fine with that, the quieter the better. wink.gif

Wow, what a beast. Water? Also, Hynix memory I'm guessing? Beats my 290X at 1240/1640 (14.8k ~)
