8800GTS overclocking problem

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
ok well i overclocked my factory OCed GTS from 575 to 650 and memory 850 to 950, my 3Dmark06 score only improved by 150 points, when i overclocked my CPU my gain in was about 1600 points.



according to Rivatuner, my ambient temp is between 35-40 and my core temp is about 50 and 55 under load.


i also managed to turn my fan speed from 60 to 80.


anyone got any suggestions?


PS: i have 3 things to choose from when OCing, standard 2D, low 3D and performance 3D, do they all have to be the same? because only touched the Performance 3D option.


thanx in advance

2D, 3D Low, and 3D high do not need to be the same. Increasing the 3D Low will likely improve your score. Personally, I keep them all the same. It is from habit when my old card would lock up entering games if the settings were different.
If your ambient temperatures are hitting 40c, I strongly recommend purchasing some form of air conditioning. If you mean that that is the idle temperature, and 55 is load, those are good.

well Rivatuner only has two temp readings, one is Ambient (37c) and the other is core temp (50c), and when im running 3dmark the core temp jumps to about (55c).

The ambient gpu temp means very little, I'm not even sure where the temp is measured from. The only one that is important is the gpu core temp.

8800's are good to go up to 70-80° so a load of 55 is great.

also after overclocking how do i save these settings? whenever i reboot both frequencies goes back to stock, i also clicked that little box that says keep these settings at windows startup and saved them.

was your CPU overclocked or at 1.86ghz? if so thats WHY. check out my thread and youll see that even the C2D's at stock levels appear to bottleneck the 8800 series. what was your CPU clocked at compared to 150 points? anyways a link to my thread.

you are going to have to publish your results and use the compare link so that we may see them.

are you sure you have a gts? Because stock clocks 575 is gtx, anless its factory overclocked, whoops.
and the amb temp is the temp of air leaving the card not your room temp.
3d mark is stupid, having a better cpu gives you higher score, which is stupid cause then your not comparing graphics cards Then.
