I understand, perfect! just unticked it, as you recommended, which makes sense of course.

Big thanks for your help and time sir.

I really, appreciate this.

It wasn't doing it properly, i had to manually enabled it, probably because CCC was started after Afterburner and it was setting default options, so, what i did is i delayed startup of Afterburner to 15 secs in MSIAfterburner.cfg, and now it works as it should.

Since, i have auto apply overclocking, should i untick Force Constant Voltage or leave it?
This means, if its not using full mhz\power it will use lower power and use max when its needed,or?

Thanks!

Yes untick it, so you save power when your idling.

Edit: Too late.

This also should be better for the card, as its not using high power while its idling = idling temp should be lower, right?
Which is good, i mean, if that is the case, summer is coming here in Canada (it will be warmer) smile.gif

idle temps should be lower yes, i wouldn't expect a 10c drop or anything though.

If any1 please could respond to my questions from post 9, i would appreciate that very much, and will be very thankful.

Big thanks!











Just overclocked my CPU from 3.2GHz to 4.6GHz, and, now getting even better results in 3DMark thumb.gif

smile.gif A lot of fun, to be honest with you.
Lot of testing done lately, everything seems to be stable\run smooth.

As for the gaming, games i play, everything runs as it should, everything is maxed out.
I am also thinking now of getting one more gpu, for crossifire.
.. but, not sure if that is the smart move (yet), as i am able to max everything out right now. rolleyes.gif

For 1920 x 1200 gaming a single GPU is fine unless you need the extra fps and from looking at your monitor it's a 60hz panel (correct me if im wrong) so it's not that useful.

If you want to upgrade then i'd go 1440p or 4k, then you might want another 290 smile.gif
