Nice score. To bad about the artifacts though mad.gif

I wonder what stable clock you could get at +200mV offset. For me I don't gain much of anything going from +150 up to +200.

I think I can manage being stable at around 1185ish at +200 vs 1170 at +150. I can do bench runs at 1200 core but eventually I will see a little artifact here and there.

For kicks yesterday, I tried 1225 core with 1700 men @ +200mV. I throttled so much that I got a worse score than 1170 core. How are you increasing the power limit while using Trixx? I've tried running afterburner at the same time, but it's wonky. Are you raising the power limit via AMD Overdrive? For the record, the core never went above 73 and the hottest VRM was in the 60s with fans on 100. It shouldn't be throttling due to temps.

Edit: Nevermind, I feel like an idiot, I didn't see the scroll bar in Trixx where you can go down and set power limit.rolleyes.gif

Anyone getting any crazy overclocks out of this thing? I may try to throw one down this afternoon now that I know how to set the power limit in Trixx. I may go for 1250 core just to see what happens. Anyone done a Red mod on this card? I have all the parts to do so, but the card seems to be too much of a thing of beauty to take apart.

I tried, even going up to +225mV using the cheat with AB does not give much more. My card seems to hate going above 1200 on the core no matter what I throw at it.

Did you bump the Auxilary voltage as well?

Nope never messed with it. I could not find any info on if it helped bumping it up some or how much to increase it. So I left it alone.

New High Score for me:



Very minimal artifacting. Core 1200, Mem 1700, +200mV, Power Limit +50 in Trixx. Getting pretty close to Dorrak's score at the same settings. I'm guessing it's the CPU. Trixx has started black screening my machine though if I don't slowly bump up the core and mem clocks. I can't just set to max and hit apply. I have to move up a little at a time. Gonna try some higher speed here now.

I think the memory was my issue with instability ramping up and down. When I set it to 1650, I don't seem to have that problem. I just ran the benchmark again at 1220 core, 1650 mem, and +200mV and got the exact same FPS and score above, but with tons of artifacting.

Here is my new best at 1215 core, 1700 memory.

Started getting artifacts in the end. Needs more voltage! That was at +250mV offset. Trying to break 1600 biggrin.gif
