9600GT overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For the most part @ stock timings I'm getting around 10,000 in 3Dmark06. when I overclock the card my scores go down. I'm only running 53c in Crysis.

Has anyone else encountered this?

I did got a randum 11030 score yesterday. I'm thinking nVidia is holding these cards back with their drivers.

i think it's a voltage thing .. which i think explains the decrease in speed when overclocked

I'm running Forceware 174.16


My Corsair PSU has 49amps on the 12V rail which should be plenty. That was the whole reason I bought it.

This is happening to a lot of people and my theory is that the voltage supplied to the memory and core is just enough to keep it running as the specs the manufacturer as set. Anything above that and your card runs stable but there's just a touch too little voltage to give you an increase.

Now another theory is the 2 phase power setup...what about the Galaxy aka KFA2 version that has a 3 phase power design?
