How To: Overclock Your AMD / ATi GPU - Page 63

post #621 of 648
what if there is error of 1 or 2 pixel.
Is it stable then cause i dont see yelow dots but gpu tool says last error 1 second ago.

Its up to you if you can live with it smile.gif

try backing up a few MHz until it goes away

Wow, this thread started in 2009. I have been running this card a long time. During the past 3 or 4 years there must have been some cheaper, faster, smaller, cooler running cards out there that I can use in my next PC build.

I won't go with a monster like this thing again. Runs so hot that I can't sit in my home office in the summer unless I have the air cranked in the house and fans blowing on me. The one thing I do love about it - I never did play any games using it after all the overclocking pain - is the ability to run 3 monitors. I have my email open to the left, main browser in the middle, and IM, time, weather and other misc stuff on the left monitor.

Now when I go on a business trip and need to use a laptop I feel so unproductive!

Errors can hinder performance. I've personally experienced that if my GPU OC is too high, my benchmark scores will drop dramatically and I will have noticeable frame skips during gaming. Even if temperatures are in check..

What kind of cooling do you have and is your voltage high?

Not that I know anything tongue.gif

just curious
post #626 of 648
What is the reasonable voltage to use without degrading the gpus once overclocked??
Hmm.. my gpus are underwater btw.. so i just like to overclock it and set it.. so i can overcome anything i throw at.. but i don't want to kill it as well..

HIS 7970Ghz Edition, Stock - 1050 mhz / 1500 mem
I know that i had it overclocked at 1100 mhz at stock volt no problem... i'm trying to get stable at 1200mhz.. the volt has been climbing up toward1.35 so far.. not stable..still testing.. i just want to be safe without bricking the cards. rolleyes.gif

Totally subjective here, but last time I heard overvolting suggestions were generally always within 10% of stock voltage. Under water I would push it a bit more, but I'd never push more than 20% more into the core unless you're planning to kill the card - although, more voltage quickly ramps up power usage.

Okay, what is 20% then... give me an idea

Hey, i just forgot that i had iTurbo from HIS that does the same as Trixx.. even memory volt and core volt mod as well! Check it out.. Great for HIS owners thumb.gif

that unnoficial eula bypass/override will be handy, i have the sliders all the way over on my 7950 right now. lets see what i can get smile.gif
