Results of overclocking - too hot? - Page 6

post #51 of 62
Glad that everything is working the way you wanted.You cant change the treshold thats normal,its the temperature your card will start to slow down but dont worry temps wont go that high.If you are really curious keep the gpu temp window open and run a new game in "windowed mode" and watch the temps while you play.

@ kinderedice....thats great mate! Do you think that i could push my gfx card even further? or is there a risk of damage to hardware?

What game do you recommend as being very stressful to the gfx card?, because i'll have to download it.

EDIT: Lastly I've had to change the BIOS PCI-E to 107mhz as on 106mhz, the gpu dropped back to 1x

Yeah you can try higher clocks,people are overclocking their cards to like 650/1000(2000ddr) for 3dmark 06 tests but thats way too much,my card doesnt even go that high.I havent tried past 575/925 for daily use,if you want try 575/925 and use it for few days lets see if it works ok.I'm not really playing much games lately,I checked Fear and Test Drive Unlimited but they dont have "windowed mode".I think Quake 4 has it,give it a try.

Is there a chance that whilst i'm playing a game, the gpu can automatically switch over to 1x????

Never heard of that before,maybe you need a bios update? also check if new motherboard drivers are available.

bios and mobo drivers are fully uptodate mate. The BIOS is version 1202.

Anyway its not a major issue at the moment, so i'm not too worried.

3DMark Score 8960 3DMarks

SM 2.0 Score 3966 Marks

SM 3.0 Score 3800 Marks

CPU Score 2495 Marks


TOTAL SCORE: 8960


Detailed Test Results

there's not a massive speed difference in my opinion, but it doesn't matter anyway as i've had to cancel the gfx o/c. The problem i mentioned earlier to do with the pci-e going down to 1x is still there..even after i put up the BIOS PCI-E to 110mhz!!

Even if both gpu and ram showed "16x", i could notice the pc slow down and take forever to load as though there was a bottleneck. I don't know what is causing the problems and for now have switched back to the original speed.

***!!! Sorry, please ignore the above as this problem seems to be caused by something else. Even with the gfx not being o/c, my pci-e GPU is on 1x. I have set the bios pci-e to 100mhz and gfx card is back to its standard speed of 513/792. So why is it still going to 1x? Please help!

Here are the CPU-Z and NVidia screenshots:-
