Newb overclocking 1080

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just recently got my strix 1080 oc card. Am messing with oveeclcking and was wonderjng what i should be expecting. So far i added like +100 to the core and 300 memory and have been running the firestrike demo. do i need to purchase it so i can run extreme and ultra?

Wither way it seems like my firestrike numbers are way lower than others that ive seen. My clock starts out at just over 2100 but ends up at like 1978 or something which i assume os the new gpuboost 3.0 at work . My graphics score is 24340 and total of only 15030. I only have a 4690k and have it running stock at the moment but have had it 4.7, 4.8 in the past.

Some pointers from you guys would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the typos am on my phone at work

That kind of drop off is indicative of your card throttling due to power, voltage or thermal limitation. Check GPU-Z while benchmarking and look for Perf.cap reason, it's the second to last row in the sensors tab.

Well i overclocked my cpu a bit and enabled xmp and here's what i came up with. 24299 graphics and 16900 total. When looking at perf cap reason only getting vrel which i beleieve is normal. How is that score? Also how far should i be pushing memory ? Havent went past +330 or so . Just wanting to learn how to get tje most out of my card and hoping someone can kind of teach me their ways.lol . I appreciate the advice.

What software you're using to overclock with? You could give your card extra voltage to maintain the 2100 MHz boost clock or close to it anyway. But still that drop is quite substantial. My 1070 drops from 2101 to 2075 during Fire strike stress test if I don't give it extra voltage.

Memory clock isn't as important as far as performance boost goés and it greatly depends on the benchmarks you're doing. I can run Unigine Heaven with +500 and then only +320 (using same core clock) in the Fire Strike stress test to pass the stability test.

3Dmark advanced was on Steam sale for 5€ wink.gif

I was using a.b. but cant touch the voltage on it for some reason. If i use the asus software i can. How much voltage should i use. Do i need to use any settings like k boost or whatever or just leave it stock and let it go up and down on its own. So far all ive done is take the power limit and temp limit to the max ,added some memory and took the core clock up by around 100.

You must download the latest Afterburner beta to change voltage in Pascal cards with Afterburner. Add little bit of voltage and check the voltage number in GPU-Z and see if it's going down while benchmarking. Also keep your eye on the core clock and if it's maintaining the max boost better.

You could add the maximum allowed by the software, these cards are so well protected and almost impossible to brick thumb.gif

Ok ove got the latest ab one thing ive noticed though. The voltage maxes out around 1.062 and have seen 1.075 for a split second. I woukd raise the voltage slider and the voltage cjanged exaclty zero percent? Ive seen some posts about changing the voltage curve can someone explain how exaclty i should set that curve up properly
