Issues with overclock Evga 970 SSC (more so looking for information)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
First and foremost I really haven't overclocked since AMD 32bit so it has been a long time. I have spent the last 2 weeks researching and using most of my spare time trying to work out this extremely strange issue. So lets get to it.

I originally had a +175mz core and 495mhz memory 25mv power limit 110 overclock. Which I ran Heaven max settings 2560 x 1440 for over an hour with no crashing nor artifacts. I was pretty stoked. Started up GTAV ran smooth and perfect for a few hours, I thought I was successful. So I ran 3dmark 2011 and my computer locked up, I restarted re ran it and it was fine so I didn't think twice. Now here is where it gets strange. I started overwatch and anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours I would get a driver crash. However according to after burner I never went over 106 power limit and I never exceeded 70c temps. I was really confused, so I put over watch on the shelf for a bit because the OC was working perfect in GTAV. Then I booted up Arma2 Dayz mod with a friend and almost instantly crashed. Now Dayz runs fine on stock but if I change LITERALLY anything it crashes to black screen where I still hear sound and cant doing anything but hit the power button. I can live with turning my oc completely off for Dayz no problem there (still really strange). So yesterday I was so fed up with over watch crashing (I have tried at least 30ish overclock profiles messing with settings) I went to stock and starting over. I booted up Overwatch and started tweaking the core by 10's until 125 and stopped. Then Memory to 300 and stopped. Together they work success! But I am still confused as to why Overwatch is the only game that cant handle the bigger overclock even though temp is fine and power limit is fine. Maybe I am being a noob and over looking something but I just am really trying to absorb as much information as I can about overclocking this card to its full potential. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have read this card is Voltage locked. That being said wouldn't the power limit be at 110 when it crashes?

One more thing Crysis 3 max at 2560 x 1440 ran great (well 24-50 fps) with the higher overclock for over an hour without issue.
