Overclocking FX-6300 and other components - Page 6

post #51 of 57
Thread Starter 
I see. Well speaking of the GPU, I'm getting some strange readings from my hardware monitor program. It seems the core clock is going up to 1137Mhz when the boost clock is only supposed to go up to 1098Mhz. Also the memory is supposed to go up to 6000Mhz but my monitor shows that it only goes up to 3005. It lists the shader as going up to 2273Mhz when it is only supposed to go to 980Mhz. Do you think it's just an error with the monitoring program, or is there some settings I should look at?

Are there any programs that can monitor PCIe bandwidth usage?

It seems like 3.0 would give me a lot better performance, unless there's another factor I'm missing.

Its like driving a car that will only go 50 mph on a highway with a 100 mph speed limit. The car still only goes 50 mph.

The GDDR5 bus can be measured different ways. It can be reported as 1500mhz, 3000mhz, or 6000mhz depending but there is some "confusion" there as it's really 1500mhz and 6000MT/s by my understanding.

The high core clocks are probably just natural Keplar boost frequencies, perhaps you have a mildly factory overclocked GPU. Nothing wrong there.

The shader clock is just being incorrectly reported by software as 2X the core clock, which was true for Fermi architecture cards.

I understood that it doesn't use up the available bandwidth of PCIe 2.0. I guess I had just figured that they made it use 3.0 because it needed 3.0...perhaps it's just for people doing an SLI configuration.

Good to know, although the core clock IS still going up to 1137Mhz, even after installing the utility that came with the GPU and having it set to the default 1033/1098 Base/Boost. The GPU core does get fairly hot--I've seen it up to 52 degrees Celcius. It must be fine at that temp though since I've only ever seen the fan go up to 50%.

52C is cold for a GPU. Everything is fine wink.gif

Nope, pci-e 3 is backwards compatible to pci-e 2 and even with sli the pci-2 buss isnt saturated yet AFAIK. They did it for 1) Marketing purposes and 2) Future needs down the road maybe.

Yeah, 52C at load is very cold for a gpu. Most will go 70 - 90C under msi Kombustor testing.
