Two 470s in SLI with a MODERATE 800/1850 overclock gets me 37k vantage physx on

I'll try with it off later I would guess I can get 33k with it off.

No it wasn't shrink-wrapped.

None of them are shrink-wrapped because they want customers to be able to open that Velcro-sealed flap inside the store. It's all a part of the presentation and MSI's sales pitch/tactic.

Well it's been awhile since I last posted about my card's condition. After a couple of stressful weeks I decided not to RMA my card because I'm 100% sure it wasn't the video card that was giving me "artifacts". In fact, it seems there weren't any artifacts in the first place, as all the games I'm playing now are completely fine. The games I've tried are Stalker CoP/CS, Crysis and Warhead, Bioshock 1 and 2, Metro 2033, DOW 2, and Starcraft 2. I tested my 5770, which gave the same results (the artifacts I saw were just settings that needed to be adjust properly in the games themselves).

So I guess that's it then. This card hasn't been giving me any trouble for almost a week now and I'm very happy with it. I'm in the process of getting a decent overclock; the settings are 800/1600/1810 at 1050mV. I ran MSI Kombustor (1920x1080, Post FX, 16xMSAA, OpenGL3) for around 1hr 40min and Furmark for about 45min (I was impatient) with no visible artifacts in either test and in games. Max temp was 78C at 54% fan speed in a 79F room. Should I consider this stable, and if not, what should I change? For example, is my voltage too low for this clock?

Also, when you say it got as high as 73°C, do you mean while folding? If that's the highest it got, then that's very safe (and probably pretty much normal for this card with 55% fan speed).

I currently have the same BIOS you have, but I ended up with a stock VID of 1.100V (which I have not yet changed). I overclocked just the core to 800, found it to be unstable in EVGA OC Scanner, and I eventually settled on 765 which seems to be about my personal maximum. So, I have an overclock of 765/1530/1848 using 1.100V. I used a fan speed of 100% while running EVGA OC Scanner, and the highest temperature I saw happened to be about 70°C.

Regarding the smell: that's normal. I smelled it too, but as long as it's not a burning smell, then everything is fine - especially with a cool temp of 73°C (it's cool for an overclocked GTX 470 under full load).

I abandoned Afterburner since I find it too hyped up when it comes to fan controls and since it's showing EVGA as product code then might as well use the same utility.

So far it's on a 75c peak with 50% fan speed. Didn't bother to put the fan speed to 100%.


I'll report back after 2 hours when it's done - already seeing 1 artifacts but I'm not concerned with it.

I'm quite happy with the results but I will reflash using OVEVGA480.ROM and will run the same stress test.


Current bios is OCX480.ROM


I appreciate your help TwoCables! I owe you one here.

Just one question about those artifacts during stress test, does it matter even if it reported none after testing?

Ok guys 0412 is unlocked ! ran quite a few bios and settle with gool old ! grunions !
she is resting in the Lyn 870 and finally got her other 4 gb of sector 5 anniversary ram !
7-7-7-20 @ 1600 Stable Now to bench dIs tinG !
Great work all , I was not surprised at all when looking up this card after getting it a few weeks ago that this club was going Kudos OCN !

Just got my SLI bridge replacement from MSI (thanks Rajiv!!). Did a 3dmark Vantage run at 800/1900@1.088v and got 33.8k. Previously I was getting 31k without the bridge, so it's a little less than 10% improvement

Hey guys, I've just updated the spreadsheet. As per usual, if I missed you, drop me a line!



On another note, have we figured out the best performing BIOS yet?

Phaedra, it sounds like you cleared up your issues. That's great to hear.
post #3190 of 5083
BIOS performance is totally placebo. Just find one you like that meets your needs (uncapped, clocks, and if the defaulting voltage has been tweaked)
