The 55nm GTX 260 216 Overclock Thread - Page 71

post #701 of 984
To check the voltage just click here in GPUZ and save your bios to file.

Then download Nibitor and open the .bin you just saved within Nibitor, the voltage i'm interested in is the "Extra"

How high can you get the shaders with the core/mem still at stock? I'm interested in one for folding and i'd like it hit around the 1548 strap

Oh, so is it possible to get a higher OC on the shaders if lower my core OC?

What yields the best results in games then? A high shader OC or high core OC?

I'll get that information for you in a minute. I've just created a custom fan profile so hopefully that will help me a little as the old one would really ramp the fan up until the core hit 75C.

I'll test out some low core/ high shader OCs now.

With that card I achieved 750/1606/1100. Temps were 60c max with fans @ 100%.

Could get the core higher but at an expense to the shaders, and I found the shaders to be most beneficial when pumping out more fps.

I am also selling this card fyi

Welcome me to the club, fellas!!!

I got a Sparkle GTX260/216, sporting default clocks on it.

Right now I've clocked it to 700/1400/999MHz. I left the memory stock as there's no real benefit from it, though when I had it OCed earlier to 1100, dropping it back down to stock lowered my load temps 3c. Right now my idle/load is 40c/60c OCed.

I was wondering if vmodding through the BIOS to 1.18v, what clocks might be possible? Would those clocks even matter since I'm running on a lower res, 12x10? I'm probably fine with the clocks I got now, though I haven't pushed it any further (due to overkill). Just wanting you guys' opinions.

*edit* One more question! Does the GTX's fan inhale, or exhale? Dumb question, I know.

I've got the same card. All I can push out of it is 700 core and 1509 shades. I haven't really messed with the memory clock. Anything over 700 core and 1509 shades causes the PC to crash. I hope you have more luck with yours.

It draws air in then blows it out the back.

The stock fans on Nvidia cards intake through the center of the fan and blow out air from the outside edge of the fan.

Welcome!

I have a bit of a dilemma.

I'm not quite sure what the problem is, but it seems with all my games I'm having a stuttering problem. I really don't know where to begin. I've tried default clocks on the motherboard, including RAM and CPU, nothing. I've tried WHQL drivers 181.22s and 182.50s, but the problem persists. It's completely random when it happens. I've disabled unneeded services in Vista, made sure my DirectX is up to date, and the problem still persists. I know my power supply is more than enough to run it no problem, but I've pulled one of the 6-pins from the power supply and used a 4pin molex to 6pin pcie adapter for shiggles, and nothing still. I'm really hoping it isn't the motherboard for whatever reason, because I just received it brand new just 2 WEEKS AGO! Any suggestions?

Are you using a capture card? Since I got this card whenever my capture card is recording i get stutter in my games even though my fps stays steady above 60

Sooo... I just used the EVGA precision tool to OC my card, and don't tell me it was as easy as sliding those bars around... how do I test this OC to make sure it's stable? What programs can I use to test it?

I already have GPU-Z for my validation, I just need to know how to ensure that it's a stable OC...

Furmark stability test and ATI TOOL.

Make sure you run them both for a decent amount of time.
