After that, skip core overclocking and go down to memory clock, and start increasing it by +100 increments and clicking apply. Get to around + 500 Mhz on MEMORY (make sure you're not increasing core clock).

Then go run Firestrike and see if you're having any issues with it or not (like artifacts or crashing)... If not then go back and increase CORE clock (but don't expect to get much here).

Keep using Firestrike to test for quick stability... ONCE you're completely finished do a lot of other stress testing and MONITOR your temperatures.

So right now I have;

Power Limit 126%
Core Clock +106 MHz
Memory +666MHz

Hey dude, how do you get the power limit to 126% or isn;t that possible for the founders edition?

I believe everyone that updated their BIOS or bought a GPU from the second or third batch (that was already updated), got screwed with an updated BIOS that had lower power limits than the cards that came out with the original batch. What's yours? 112% max?

This is one of the reasons why I haven't updated my BIOS yet. I've stayed on the original BIOS.

Oh right, yeah mines 112%. So I guess its stuck there frown.gif shame really, hopefully things will get unlocked by bios update at some point i havr plenty of thermal headroom

Can you provide some proof that memory is more important than core?

Yeah I was thinking of making a new profile so that they would start spinning at 45c since it idles at 35c. I still want them to shut off if im idle, should make the fans last a lot longer if they are technically only running at 50% duty.

I'm pretty sure my 770 would downclock memory so it might be alright. I will have to monitor the mem frequency when using chrome or watching movies to make sure it isn't going full clocks with the fans off.

My Strix caps out at 112% as well. I'm not sure what 126% would do though if I'm already hitting 1093mv with 112%. I hope there are bios updates in the future that will let us OC over 2150mhz. These cards run so cool it would be a shame not to see them at 2500mhz.

My benchmark scores with +155/+575 are lower than my scores with +140/+750. I was getting within spitting distance of my +155/+575 score with +0/+750.

Just mess around with it and see how it goes with your card.

It won't make any difference unless we can get beyond 1.1v. I get zero difference in clock speeds between 100% and 126% on the power slider the same way I get no difference in voltage between 75% and 100% on the voltage slider.

For me it's quite the opposite heres my score for compare with 2152 core -> http://www.3dmark.com/fs/9256696 i would actually start loosing points when overclocking them memory over 9300mhz effective (+650 set on ab)

Hey guys I've just run the Firestrike Extreme Stress Test and got 0% Passed twice in a row. Any idea what this means?

It's crashing.
Lower your clocks
