Am I pushing My SLI OC to Much?

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
You can see my specs in my sig, let me know what you think

Just got BFBC2, I run the game on advanced w/ the following settings.

SLI Enabled
Res 1920X1080
Level of Detail -High
Texture Quality-High
Shadows - Low
Effects Quality- Medium
AA- 2X MSAA
Anisotroscopic Filter - 4X
VSYNC- On
HBAO- On (<--IDK what this does, but it looks better with it on)

So here is my question, I cannot run the game like this unless I am really pushing my cards. Stock they are the following:

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 260 OC2 Maxcore
Core Clock630MHz (vs. 576MHz standard)
Shader Clock1350MHz (vs. 1242MHz standard)
Shader Model4.0
Texture Fill Rate45.4 Billion/sec.
Processor Cores216 (vs. 192 standard)
Video Memory896MB
Memory TypeGDDR3
Memory Data Rate2126MHz (vs. 1998MHz standard)
Memory Interface448-bit
Memory Bandwidth119.1GB/sec.

My current OC on them is
Core Clock: 820MHz
Shaderclock: 1757MHz
Memory Clock:2126MHz

I run the fan at 75 on precision and my temps are staying at 49-51C under game load.

Am I going to blow my GPU's up with this kinda OC or can I go further?

Overclocked GTX260 SLI + Core 2 QAD @ 3.4GHz should be able to max the game out....

A single GTX260 at stock can do 43FPS at 1920x1200 at high so you should be getting 60-75FPS easily.

Tried that, the screen tears and the game runs like ****. What else can I do? I want to run maxed out however have not been able to. I really dont want to push my cards to over 900MHZ. If I even try to go above 4X AA the game is not playable IMO and looks horrible.

Thats a VERY decent OC, considering its an Oc'd card!! and some sweet temps too,

For some extra stability testing us the Furmark Multi gpu stress test, it gives you real time temps.

Post your results.

good luck

Your processor also stomps on my and then scrapes it off on the curb. if im not mistaken, this game runs phyx through the CPU. So you have 8 cores, I have 4.

8 Cores? in what reality? 4 cores, 8 threads, sorry to correct you!

the i7-980e has 6 cores!!
