Problem overclocking using Heaven and Valley benchmarks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Recently, I've been trying to overclock my strix 1070 using this guide at the ROG forums.

First I tried to OC using heaven as my benchmark. However, once I used that settings with Unigine Valley, there was alot of obvious artifacts appearing when Unigine Heaven benchmarks does not have any at all. i realised when using Unigine Valley I had to tone down my settings by alot before I can get it to stabilize

So the question is whether I should just use the max settings for Heaven, or should I lower my settings and use Valley as the benchmark?

Below is my rig in case you need more info, it was just built last month:
Asus B150i ,i5-6500
Asus ROG Strix 1070 OC
G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)
SSD 850 EVO 2.5" SATA III 250GB + WD BLUE 1TB
Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Mini-ITX
SUPERFLOWER SILVER 90+ 550W
Window 10 PRO

It depends if you want maximum stability or stability in only certain situations.

I guess if you are seeing problems in Valley, there will most likely be an in-game situation where you will see these artifacts as well.

Personally I'd go for the most stable setup that works on everything I use to test. That way it hopefully won't need to be tweaked later.

You could also try playing around a bit more with the higher overclock, might just be a few Hz on the core or the memory away from stable, or a slight voltage adjustment...

Lower your OC to whatever is stable, regardless of the program.
