Thats it for tweaking mem timings for me!
I just started Ocing my GPU (GTX 970) after what I though was a stable CPU overclock. When starting Ocing the gpu it wouldent take much to have it fail, say 50 mhz over stock = 100hz as it's DDR in Afterburner!
And Ocing the mem was a no deal. So after thinking what a crappy GPU, I just for the sake of it set my CPU Oc to stock, and voila it would overclock like crazy, on both the Core and Memory!
So guess what, it was the damn memory timings that was the problem, I mean the RAM of course. I set it back to the loose stock timings 16 - 18 -18 - 36. And voila again.
I even tried give the Ram more Voltage, and let the mobo take care of it. Even set my IO / SA at Auto.
Nothing was helping, only just loosing up the ram timings. And in every stresstest program it went smooth, but when Ocing the GPU it went staight to he..!
I am very disapointed. I have never heard of how that could make Ocing the GPU almost impossible.
So if I want to be able to O/C my GPU I just have to use very loose timings
I guess many would have though, well first we o/c the cpu/ram and when it's stable you go on to the GPU, thats what I have allways done before.
This seems really crazy dont you think ?
It would be really good if Raija@Asus could help us with a Memory Timings Guide or something Edited by JnLoader - 1/20/16 at 12:45pm
