How To: Overclock Your AMD / ATi GPU - Page 36

post #351 of 644
I'm new to OC'ing GPUs. Would the fact that my pci-e slot is only running @ x8 affect the speed of the GPU? I have 2 slots but both are in use and will only run @ x8 not x16

No, most mid range gpus do not make full use of the pcie slot. You should be fine, the performance difference would be negligible.

Thanks.
Strange. I know the WEI score doesn't mean much but a guy I know reckons he gets 6.8/6.8. Mine only gets 5.6/6.6 same card. I've asked him for proof but haven't heard back yet

Disabling aero and all other unnecessary background applications could help that score.

Yeah..I don't wanna do that..lol
Anyway, it won't be long til I get a 6850. Just OC'd my current card and got a bit of a boost (was 5.0/6.4). That'll do in the meantime.

OCCT works really well for finding artifacts also.

I have yet to find any artifacts on furmark but on GPU tool with the same settings, it finds pixel distortion or w/e its called.

I don't know which stability test to trust. I've been playing sc2 for awhile and haven't experienced any crashed and I ran furmark for 20 minutes and didn't crash either.

Real world experiences are the best tests IMO. If everything's OK while gaming then I'd say don't worry about it

Same as another poster, the GPU tool don't seem to grab any info. I have installed all the necessary background files and such.

Using Catalyst 10.6 but still no love for the info showing up?

Any ideas? I did read around 20 pages looking for the answer but I gave up cuz I'm getting tired of reading.

Any help would be great!

Thanks!
