Gtx 970 ssc can't get artifacts during oc - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
so for right now i briefly tried oc memory with core at +0 and was able to get it to run without artifacts at 425 and then i tried core oc and got it to +130 without any overvoltage but fire strike crashes after the demo with "an unkown error occured
returned error message DXGI call IDXGISwapChain::SetFullscreenState failed (-2005270494}:"

the only background apps running are steam, ab, and gpuz

those results were without any memory oc, just to isolate the core testing

just tried playing fallout 4 with mem +425 and core +130 and it went smooth for about 10 min then i got the graphics drivers crashed error message =(

the card has 4GB of memory so either multiply the 1GB clock by 4 or multiply the 2GB clock by 2 and youll get your effective memory clock speed.

thats why on EVGA's website it lists the 970 SSC to have 7010MHz effective memory clock. but in GPU-Z it displays as 1752.5MHz(1753) default clock.


hope all that makes sense.

awesome that makes sense! thanks

@phreshxmetal alrite. first i need to correct myself. i previously said that the memory clock readout in GPU-Z's sensors tab was for 2GB of memory, i forgot that with a stock bios the sensors tab shows the same as the main GPU-Z tab. so in your case, just multiplay your memory clock by 4 to get your Effective.

anyways it looks like your card is wanting more power and voltage. looking at the last image of afterburner you posted your already at the stock bios limit of 110% power target, so your not going to be able to do anything about that unless you get a custom bios.

as for the voltage you can try maxing out your voltage slider(this wont hurt anything since your on stock bios and it will limit you to a safe value). however, by upping your voltage your going to increase heat, and seeing that your already at 71c you might bump up toward 80c and then youll start seeing instability from the temps...if its not already cuasing problems(thermal throttleing starts around 65c). id say give adding some voltage a try and if that doesnt yield you any gains then simply back it down to stock voltage and start reducing your clocks untill your stable again and that will be your limit on stock bios unfortunatly.

if you want to push your clocks harder i recomend going here

http://www.overclock.net/t/1573308/nvidia-gtx-900-cards-custom-bios-upon-request

and requesting a custom bios for your card.


also if you would like to recieve better, more frequent help i cant tell you how much i recomend going here

http://www.overclock.net/t/1514085/official-nvidia-gtx-970-owners-club

youll find all sorts of answers and the 970 crowd is very good people just looking to help each other out to reach their cards potentail.

Ok I'll give that a shot and check those links out! I was worried that upping the voltage might shorten the life of the card, but that makes sense. Thanks so much for all the help
