post #15991 of 26187
Tsss same story like GTX 770... Have now 970 and in base clocks in 3dmark was around 10 250, and with overclock and vcore 1,250v and +160 gpu and +500 ram have 11 675... I saw people whos have around 12,5-13k points and on the clock 2000mhz... how its possible? Is my score is right? or should be better?

Hi All,

First post on this site. I want to OC my new EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0.

I have never OCed my GPU before. What is the safest way to do this? I want to use EVGA precision X and would ideally like to not alter my voltage.

I've heard this card can handle a 1500 core clock and 3600 memory clock. Would these be safe settings or really pushing the card to its limits? Ideally I just want to OC it to a GTX 980. Thanks in advance.

Are you looking at the Graphics Score?

I haven't really used EVGA Precision X much but you just raise the GPU clock offset and the Memory clock offset.

For the Core, try and start with something like 20MHz, and continue upping it by 20MHz or so, to test stability you can run Unigine Valley and see if it makes it through the benchmark, and also possibly looking for artefacts.

You also may want GPU-Z to monitor things like clocks and temperatures.

For the memory you can do the same thing, and possibly upping it in the range of 20-40MHz.

This is all without raising the voltage.

No, but there is some measurable way to feel the difference... and I wat to hear other users of this card and whats scores and mhz they get. Just want know my score is good or not.

Overclocking your video card is pretty simple, and there are guides everywhere for it. Not much changes between the cards, you just increase the offsets and test (for best results, don't use Furmark) until you're stable. If you're not wanting to add any voltage, then you might not get very far, but that all comes down to your particular card - not all cards can reach the same clock speeds.

3dmark involves more than just your video cards. Your CPU, cache, and RAM speeds also come into play. So if you're trying to compare your results to another's, you would need to match the other components and speeds as well, for a "true" apples-to-apples comparison. Otherwise, you're just looking at numbers. A person with the same exact model of 970 as you could have a 5960X that's overclocked and they would mop the floor with your score.

Also, when you're running benchmarks, try to minimize the amount of programs and such that are running in the background, as they can cause your scores to drop as well.

Yes I know it, but I compare this same CPU mean i7-4790k and they usually have base clock I have 4,5ghz and have worste score. And most programs have close when I run 3dmark. Most important to me is gpu oc gain, how is look with other users.

Motherboard model and memory size and speed would help.

:boxing3:Whats up 970 brothers!

Been playing witcher 3, i found sweet spot for my OC'ed 970 with hair works on.

I really love hair works on monsters so ever thing had to be balanced around high 50 to 60 fps range with it on.

Everything is Ultra besides these 3 things i changed:
#1 "Foliage Visibility Range" set to Medium for love of god.

You sure have your great appearance of 1000 trees with shadows waving in the wind. all that goes away is 10,000 background trees you can't seem to notice, but kill your gpu by good 10 fps or more(am not kidding).

#2 "Grass Density" is set to low, you sure have tons of 'grass" and you keep all cool plant life.

#Shadows High, can't really tell diff form ultra and high that much.


This should get you running musty 50 fps to 60 fps avg range outside of in game moments of close up of hair where it drops big time (really close indoors and cutscenes looking at your hair)

I really love how taxing hair works is. You gotta admit it makes monsters look great!
Here i was thinking 970 was over kill for my 1080p gaming and this game is giving it a intense workout boxing3.gif

PS without hair works on it's solid 60+ fps ever where with these settings.

Im running Witcher 3 on ultra, hairworks off, no AA. Any reason my GPU needs to be at 98% usage 100% of the time im actually in game and not a cutscene or the menu? At least this is what HWmonitor is trlling me its at.
