Mixolyd: welcome to the poor cards club, I've installed Firestrike and that damn thing keeps pushing the OC too high with high temperatures and makes the card crash. There might be some driver hidden crap trying to push the card a little too much when Firestrike is detected. I even switched to a stripped down AfterBurner, no change. Will see after I swap OS and test more games and benches.

GTX 1060 stock reference clocks and limits:

13307
Clocks usually max out 1848MHz but I forgot to check during this one.



GTX 1060 lowered OC so it passes the power hungry crazy Firestrike, +175MHz, +550MHz, max limits:

14760
Clocks max out 2012MHz under sustained load and 150W max power consumption, with the newest drivers it takes a while for the clocks to drop down, they must have changed something because with older I was going below 2000MHz with this low OC. Normal gaming is around 110-130W, yet Firestrike peaks into 140-150W.



Dunno why the physics scores are so different, I guess they are not that much CPU bound since CPU ran the same clocks and I also have my crazy Firefox and HWiNFO running in background for the OC result... oh yeah and a background downloading.

Yes I don't understand these cards. Without touching anything my card boosts to I think 1918 if I recall correctly. Does current temp of the card affect boost? Why does it boost on it's own?

Oh looks like the Arctic liquid cooler 120 isn't too big after all and I should be able to mount it fine on the gtx 1060. Just waiting on these cheap ram sinks to arrive from tokyo biggrin.gif

Did change the stock past on the pny and temps improved. Now I stay in the low 60s when gaming usually in far cry 3. Before it was getting in the 70s in far cry 3.

Very much so.

Because OverBoost 3.0. There have always been Voltage/Clock pairs defined, now we can redefine them BUT IMHO the major change is that it now has a "mind of it's own" and adjusts/tries to compensate the crazy boost it applies when temperature raises. Most of the time it reduces clock sure but not just that it also reduces voltage with higher temperature. That's why I call it OverBoost because it runs way over the boost clock and that curve with voltage/clock? USELESS.

Tokyo? Ebay has the copper sinks for like $6 shipped from Hong Kong.

Meh frown.gif I don't wanna ruin warranty just to change the paste. Is it really that better? What paste did you use? CLU or some crazy stuff or just normal Gelid Extreme and such?

What's your new stable temperature after the paste change when running Heaven 4.0, Ultra/Extreme/8x/1080p?

I think I know what you mean by not understanding them in regards to temps:boost situation.


The Strix 1060 I got never throttled it's boost value when temps got passed 55c. I turned down the fans deliberately to see if boost would drop with even higher temps.

After 66c, boost STILL didn't drop.


I have also bought and overclocked a Zotac Amp Extreme 1070, and an EVGA 1080 FTW. BOTH cards started dropping their boost value after 55c, and then another drop after 60c, and so on after each 5c increase.


It is very strange to me that this 1060 I got doesn't fluctuate boost at all. Even more intriguing that it now doesn't seem like I have the only 1060 that does this.

Hey guys, have been out of the loop for a while. Really interested in a EVGA 1060 SSC, have we heard anything on when these would be available?
post #118 of 978
Hey GTX 1060 owners,

Would you consider putting all that power to a good cause for the next 2 days? If so, come sign up and fold with us for our monthly Foldathons - see attached link.

September Foldathon



To get started:

1.Get a passkey (allows for speed bonus) - need a valid email address

Yes it was ebay, double checked and it indeed is from Hong Kong. I used Thermal MX-4 compound. I thought about that, and I find it doubtful that changing paste would void warranty but pny did have the stickers on the cpu screws so maybe I just voided my warranty. redface.gif

Maybe it has more to do with the Strix bios then. Well it will be interesting to see if there will be drops on this card once I put the arctic freezer on it. I doubt it will get to 50c on water even if it just a closed loop.

Are you saying the Strix bios would do this, and not any other bios? It's an interesting theory to be sure. I'd almost want to flash my 1080 FTW to a 1080 Strix bios and see what happens. It'd be nice if that were the case.
