Hi mates! smile.gif

My Heaven score , 1080p, maxed out.




About core throttling:

On my XFX 390 black edition i have set afterburner on custom overclock mode without powel play so mi gpu core stay at 1050 mhz rock solid (stock clock) even with vsync on, even with less than 100% gpu-usage.

this is the trick to avoid clock throttling (if you guys know another or better "technique" to avoid core throttling... let me know!)

another question : have you ever heard coil-whine on your 390s ? Mine has a bit of coil whine , even at 60 fps but non that much. The card runs smooth with good temperatures.

That seems almost low , I had trouble running heaven without artifacts at my usual overclock ( which was stable on everything else ) so I dialed down the core clock from 1200 to 1160 and it ran clean but my score was 2566. I do get some coil whine during benching , not a ton but some for sure and whats nice is with the lower core clock I was able to lower the voltage to +80 mV.



Ill re run with tessellation set to extreme and see what difference it makes , I also use clock blocker to ensure my clocks remain stable during bench or games.

I ran with tessellation set to max and it does hurt some but not quite as much as it did for you , what is your overclock on GPU and CPU ?

That, and they gave the STRIX 970 1 x 6 pin power connector, SEVERELY limiting it's overclocking potential. ASUS is known for having issues with customer service, so, in seeing what they did to the STRIX Maxwells, and having experience with their RMA process, I'll never even consider them for a GPU in the future. They're just horrible.

Yeah, I agree. They've done a great job of destroying their reputation on GPU's as far as I'm concerned. Too bad. They of all companies have the means to do a lot better. Guess they just got too greedy. Who else have we seen do this a lot lately? Hmmm...thumb.gif

yeah but isnt the direct cuII about the only one that has a full cover block, is that BECAUSE the stock cooling is garbage or just a really awesome deal with asus. One of the reasons I bought the MSI is because it has a great stock cooler with plenty of VRM cooling and it should "fingers crossed" get an EK or heatkiller full cover block in the near future .

You did it wrong. smile.gif

You missed AntiAliasing (my Heaven benchmark is with 8x AA)

The right way to run Heaven is on MAX SETTINGS, even AA. smile.gif

Re-do it and put AntiAliasing on 8x! smile.gif

Ya i saw that , with aa x 8 my results were essentially the same as yours. When gaming i turn that off and tessellation to medium settings , it looks great and greatly increases fps. I cringed when I saw the fps with that junk on.

Why would anyone run Heaven on anything but Extreme preset anyway? lol at "Custom" preset.

Crimson driver without hotfix can cause core clock throttling, and also make sure your power limit is at 50%, regardless of whether you are overclocking/volting or not.

I've had several hawaii/grenada cards that would throttle in the 930-1000 range if power limit was not increased.

If it still does it after that, try jacking up fans and taking your case door off to see if the cooler temps stop it from throttling. What exactly are your temps?

I just can't believe Asus failed on cooling 2 rounds in a row, an with a second cooler design. They keep slapping their NVIDIA coolers on AMD cards despite the fact that the damn AMD cards need the better cooling worse than the NVIDIA cards do!! You'd think if they were recycling, they'd go the other way around? rolleyes.gif

Im staying under 70° on 1175/1520. Mostly 63-67. When i open Window and its cold in room :l. Otherwise 70°-75°.
Power target 120%. Increased by 20%.
Gpu voltage 1325mV. increased by 75mV.
Fan speed 50%-60%. Mostly 60%
I never tried increasing memory because I was told by people, by reading other forums, that Increasing memory on such cards is just waste of time. Because GDDR5 is way too fast to make and noticeable difference by changing it a bit.

You should always have your power limit at 150%.

First off, what Stige said. Power limit doesn't tell your card to consume more power, it just tells it "yo, don't hold back" so that IF the card needs that power it has it on tap. No reason whatsoever to not max it out, unless you're using a small factor case with a barely able PSU. And even then, I doubt there's any reason to leave it lower than 150%.

Other than that, I would suggest either leaving your memory at stock (1500MHz) or upping it to the next strap end (1625MHz or 1750MHz) to get the tightest timings possible. 1520MHz has the same, looser timings as 1625MHz whereas 1500MHz has tighter timings. So both 1625MHz (higher bandwidth) and 1500MHz (lower latency) should (will?) perform better than 1520MHz.
