This is at 1485/3555 with a G1 1.0, Hynix. Highest score thus far. Thoughts? redface.gif

Need a lot more memory clock. Unigine loves memory, up to about 2100 (base). If you can get the memory up to 2000 base (4000), and the core at 1500ish, then you should get pretty close to 68 fps. I run Valley at 1607 on the core and 2110 on the memory and get 74fps.

So I posted in the Asus ROG forum regarding the GPU Tweak utility no longer allowing overvolt on the Strix card. I believe it's either disabled now via Asus or Nvidia in their drivers. Stock voltage on the bios gives me 1.175V under load. I upped the max clocks on the bios and reflashed. Now I get 1.185V...so it's a little more and a win. lol I just wish there was more voltage tweaking with the Strix card. It's unfortunate. I set the top values for the voltages at 1268.5mV in MBT but it's nowhere close to that. I'm wondering if going higher will net me a little more volts but I highly doubt it at this point...

Different kind of memory? Idk, 3900 would mean a +400 increase on the memory clock, when it's only at +50 right now.

I'm scared to go over 1500, and 3500 is the stock memory clock on this card, I could OC further but I have never gone over 1500. Hell, the last time (and only time I've done so) I stopped at 1475. I'm just scared I might need to tweak the BIOS/voltages again to be able to go above 1500.

You may need to raise the power limits, yeah.....should be able to run 1500 though with stock voltages. Most cards will hit 1450 or so with just boost 2.0.

I was game stable, in every game I tried, at 2000 on the memory......there is absolutely NOTHING in the stock bios that is going to allow you to hurt your card in any way, shape or form. +50 on the memory is horrible....put some clock on it.

I'd like to add that some cards need higher voltages to reach 1500+. I almost RMA'd my newest card last week because of the artifacts. Raised the voltage=artifacts gone, so now I don't have to waste my time or eVGA's

If you enable KBoost in PCX, it'll run the card at the highest voltage available in the bios....there's really no need to "add" any.
post #22447 of 26194
minimum was 1.218, max was 1.262. had to increase in the bios +63mV, lol.

Make sure your Power Target is as high as you can go. If it is already, then you either need to manually lower your clocks and voltage to get back below the power limit, OR, flash to a custom bios.

With just +95 on the core and +200 on the memory, you shouldn't need to add ANY voltage for that. Don't add any voltage and see what happens, as well. I doubt you need it.

Yeah i have been running +95 and +200 without any added voltage. I wanted to add voltage to se how far i could take it. I have a custom skyn3t bios on my 780 but havent tryed one on this card. Think that one was like 1.275 on air.

My powertarget is as high as it can go.

I was curious how high i could get when i reached 1500mhz+ without any added voltage.

Is 1225mv standard max mv without custom bios?

Its the second revision version of the card.

Yeah its Green and blue.. Gosh darnit.

Any bios tips on the fly? Maby i visit the "help me with my bios" forum page

It depends on the card. Some have a limit in the bios of 1.212v. Most of the others are either 1.256v or 1.262v. Running KBoost, will give the highest possible boost voltage. That's what it's for.

And yes, visit the 900 series custom bios by request page....Mr Dark will hook you up.

I've seen like +700 on the memory in this club. People running like 2100MHz or higher. I've personally run 2050MHz with no problems, although I don't run that high because it only boosts my benchmark scores, not gaming, so it's not worth it to me.

@ around 1480MHz my card crashes on stock volts. Asus GPU Tweak used to actually work for overvolting and I could get 1.232V on the core which I was 1520MHz stable. Now with new drivers I can't overvolt at all. Sad day... Oh well. Temps and longevity will be great! Especially when my card maxes at 37C...Hehe. Most gaming sessions the card is around 32-34C..hehe
