The 55nm GTX 260 216 Overclock Thread - Page 64

Prior machine. E6850 @ 3.4ghz, asus p5n32-sli, 2gb DDR2-800 Dominator 65nm 260 SSC running 712/1532/1026. best 3dmark was 15,648.

My current rig: see sig, completely out of the box, installed windows xp and ran 3dmark06. scored 14,895. So, lost 753 pts. but then I was .1ghz CPU slower and the vid card was down clocked. On my new rig, I saved the "to excel" results after i ran 3dmark, I can find the one where I hit ssc clocks with 3.4ghz cpu and see what I scored.

My general impression is the 55nm runs a touch cooler, but seems to be a bit pickie-er to overclock in some ways. But I am very happy with it now that I have great airflow towards the card, just by doing that, pushed my clocks alot farther than before.

Now that I think of it, I could clock my cpu the same and down clock my memory and set the 55nm to the same clocks I hit on the 65 and see how it scores.
Hmm I'm not sure its worth trading my 65nm for someones 55nm than. Seems like there isn't really any benefit.

Agreed...mine seems to overclock really crappy. (720/1440/1107).

I was wondering / thinking I may try to use the Step-up program to get a GTX 260-216 (65nm version) instead of my current 55nm version. All I'd have to do is pay shipping...

Because for #1 - the 65nm supports the EVGA Voltage Tuner, 55nm doesn't.
#2: The 65nm seems to overclock alot better than the 55nm as well...

so what was even the point in EVGA making the 55nm version? To just not beable to support its software, and overclock crappier than its previous version? It kinda ticks me off, thought this one would be better.

NO NO NO NO!!!! The reason the 65nm overclocks better is becuase the hgiher volts it has. And if your going ot waste your step up chance go ahead. (.5% performance increase yay!from a 20mhz increase in overclock.) Just wait for the GTX275 which is half of a GTX295 or get a 285.

I agree, thats a waste of a step up.

A GTX275 is coming out? I'll hold off on the step-up then. I didn't know of that...where did you find this information? A link would be awesome.

Nevermind...found the info on the GTX275.

55nm
648 stock core
1476 stock shaders
1107 stock memory
216 shaders or could be 240 shaders unit. (*unknown at this time*)
TMUs 72 or 80 (*unknown at this time*)

Price is suppose to be around $229-$250 or so, and the card is suppose to be out in early April '09...so the step-up would only cost me $20ish or so + shipping since I paid $229.99 for mine from newegg about 2-3 weeks ago.

I'll def wait on my step-up, thats a cheap upgrade for $20.

do you guys need a screenshot for proof?

if so i can get one later but i'm up to 774 core clock, 1548 shader, 1152 memory. running at 100% fan speed.

max at 52 - 53 c under load.

Just an fyi: if you are using windows 7 64 bit, the vista 64 bit nvidia drivers as of right now work WAAAAAAAAY better than the windows 7 drivers.

Edit:
well it looks like left 4 dead wasn't pushing it enough. When I played Fallout 3 i got a BSOD so I decided to scale the OC back a little bit and I got furmark to test it. 30 minutes on furmark:

71 C 100 % fan 756 clock 1512 shader 1134 memory.

which seems stable. Can't believe the temp difference between gaming and furmark! wow.

I'm confused, I read across many threads that people stated GTX 260 is a better performance than ATI 4870 1gb version? Please clarify this.

Yes but by a *very small* margin. By the way I think your sig rig is a little out of date 166Mhz Pentium and 16MB of RAM on Windows 95 and a 2.1GB HD? You need *alot* of new gear before even considering either one of those graphics cards.

Ok, so question time...

I've finally got my system up and running, and with some issues that have caused me great stress, I wont be oc'ing my cpu anytime soon. However, two questions:

1 - If I still OC my 260, will the 6700 at stock clock bottleneck this at all?
2 - Whats my best option for OC'ing: the program that EVGA has, or would another program benefit me better?
