You disable the profiles in the settings where you choose to assign your 2D/3D profiles. If those are set to anything, AB will do as instructed and try to run X profile given the present "load state" so if it's idle while FSI checks your clocks, AB will set the card to idle clocks which shows up as stock clocks. The windoze power options state and the profiles must both be set, because either can change the power state given the load it senses.





I have 4, was thinking of selling one. It's a unique one though with a silly high imc/memory ic, 1750 memory speeds.

I have both 2D and 3D to "not assigned" cause if i set +300 in AB and aplly i.e. 1265 for core when it changes to 3D launching a bench like Unigine Valley it reset the voltage overdrive.

Nice memory performance you have in this card! It's a good piece for single GPU buyers. smile.gif

You have something in the way. It should not change any powerstate if you disable the changing of powerstates. You know what I mean? I assume you're monitoring voltage in the OSD thru the heaven run. If what you wrote is indicative of typical behavior, then it stands to reason that no one would be able to bench heaven with lots of voltage. However I know that's not reality. Are you using the command prompt method? My guess is that you don't have control of the powerstates?

I didn't explain well.

Excuse me for my bad English.

Of course it's not changing the power state.

i mean i have bad bench scores EVEN with "not assigned", high performance power profile and force constant voltage.

Thanks for your time. smile.gif

Ah ok.


Bad scores...? Can you link some?

From memory (i'm working now):

1225 core and 1550 mem +200 +50 valley 4981
1240/1250/1260/1265 core and 1550/1600/1625 mem +300 +50 whatever i could'nt do better than 4750.

?¿?

Just got my Lightning card, what do you guys suggest for a moderate overclock still keeping it quiet? 6 pin plugged in, bios on ln2 or no?
post #2177 of 2769
Also, what is normal operating temp at idle? Mine at stock clocks is at 38C and my room is at 21C. Open air case as well.

38 at idle is not bad but load temps is what matters.

70-75 under load is not bad for fans.

Try 1150 core and 1550/1600 mem look for the lower volts possible.

As you are using Lightning fans use an AB custom fan profile instead of MSI one to prevent fast heat raise cause once the temp raise it's very difficult to lower it under load.

Its since dropped to 35ish when not using it at all. Yeah that's what I've seen the sweetspots to be. Does anyone have an image of a good fan profile? Ill play around with mine of course but suggestions are welcome.

This depends on your personal idea of what is "quiet".

Try a straight line from 40% at 40 Cº to 100% at 75 Cº and adjust from there or move the line to a curve.

Connect the 6 pin also.
