Thinking about returning but want to know if you guys have any tips first. It is not overclocked.

Don't use HDMI, always use DVI for stability.

The next thing I try is another HDMI cable or maybe even switch to DVI.

It does this because you're using HDMI, always use DVI for stability.

Haha same, last time being on the green team was an 8800gts also.

But yeah they overclock pretty much the same, just use afterburner, precision etc.. whichever you prefer.

Then from there it is pretty similar.

Only real differences are:
It works off of an offset (+200mhz) or (+50% voltage) rather than a standard slider indicating your current clock speed.

And secondly this damned gpu boost.. setting a certain speed and being done isn't really so much of a thing now, it will keep trying to boost itself further in some cases.
So make sure to test your OC on more than one bench/stress test because while it may be fine on one and it will overboost on the next making it unstable.
(Boosting to 2050mhz perfectly stable on one app, then on the next it may try to boost itself past that to 2100mhz and become unstable for example)


My explanation is probably horrible, someone will likely come and correct and improve what I tried to say lol

any micron vram used on 1060?
post #175 of 978
I would like to know myself, it's all about how much can Samsung supply unfortunately. I've tried searching it but so far only 1070 users complained about Micron GDDR5.
post #176 of 978
well unfortunately i had to return the pny gtx 1060. the split second black screens was an issue, and the stock fan as well had such a weird whine to it. decided not to go the closed loop route as well and just bought the msi gaming x gtx1060 6gb instead. For 240 it was worth the extra 30 bucks imo for better cooling and seeing that i dont plan on upgrading for at least 3 to 4 years any way...might as well go with a card with one of the best coolers on the market. i did splurge and get noctua fans for the itx case as well....



What's weird is this card was a lot bigger than the pny gtx 1060, so i had issues but eventually got it in

post #177 of 978
Still with Samsung VRAM Clash? The card is huge XD
I know what you mean by the strange hum/whine on the fans, it's like some interference of the fans... it's kind of slow frequency and starts in the second half of the fan speeds, for me above 90-95% the fans even start to have another strange bad noise once they heatup or who knows, takes a minute or two for it to start.

Some rare shops have the MSI cheaper here now but the rest is still sky high which is weird since the MSI 480 is cheaper. Still +$45 for MSI 1060 here frown.gif

I'm just gonna stick with the Gainward, can't return it anyway but will exchange it for different one, just waiting for Monday to send it.

I haven't opened up the card. Not sure if ram is samsung. Is there a way to know without taking the heat sink off? Where are you Jack? jet.com has it for 240 with coupon code triple 15 for the first 3 orders, elect for debit card and no free returns and the price for the msi gaming x 1060 6gb went down to $240 for me, plus no tax!

GPU-Z can tell you what brand RAM you have on the card.

Yeah I get it, it costs nothing in US mad.gif Jet.com is mentioned quite often especially with the discount coupons, and Microcenter as well sometimes Amazon has good deals. Of course most in US don't seem to be paying any taxes on products when shopping online because shop is magically in no sales tax state and so is the customer, magically.

For me:
EU = +21% tax, +X% distributors, +Y% retailer if they are not greedy it gets down to about +25% compared to MSRP/(suggested retail price) in USD unless there is an MSRP in EUR. I paid 259+21% tax for my 1060, as low as it possibly get without retailer going under MSRP. Of course that's still over $300 in total.
I would gladly pay $240 for MSI GX but unfortunately at places where I can buy it it costs $360.
Of course the salaries are adjusted inversely so to make matters even worse.

GPUz shows memory details.

And test the undervolt power consumption, when you put it at 950-975mV with as high clock as you can, seems like some cards do 2.0GHz+ and eat only 60W, crazy. Mine doesn't.
