-16 Go RAM at 1600 MHz
- Motherboard Asus Z97-A BIOS 1503
My OC results:
Temp max : 85°C
- Core +150 MHz giving a stabilized clock of 1949 Mhz at full load
- Memory + 425 MHz
- Temp at full load : ~ 80°C with custom fan curve (1%/1°C beyond 40 °C)
- Maxed monitored Vcore : ~ 1,06 V
I start having artifacts in games (in particular Witcher 3) with a +450 MHz on memory, which is a poor OC in comparison with some of your OC.
Core + 175 MHz will crash drivers in some games / benchmark. Example : 3 loops stable with Unigine heaven but crash with Unigine Valley at the exact same moment into the benchmark
Boosting Vcore doesn"t help the OC . I have the same result with +100% vcore (MSI afterburner).
I'm a little bit disappointed by those results as I wanted to reach 2GHz barrier but the gaming experience is amazing and I have no regrets in purchasing this card.
Coming from a GTX680 2Go the performance increase is absolutely incredible.
If my temps go over 80C with extreme overclock I get the same driver crashes.
I usually run +185 Core, and +600 on my memory. The fan was at the default profile and my gtx1080FE crashed the drivers.
After setting my fan to more aggressive profile, keeping temps below 80C . The card no longer crashed the drivers.
