GTX 580/570 overclocking & grayscreen of death - Page 3

post #21 of 38
yes sub is correct in his decryption of my poorly worded post! sorry virtualjockey, i was watching tv and obviously didn't write my post very directly. i meant that in a short winded way; your gpu voltage is too low OR your core clock is too high for the voltage you're using. what i did that has worked so far is lower my gpu core 20mhz.

This doesn't make sense. Too MUCH voltage? Don't you mean too little?

Thanks all, I got my brain tied up in a knot for no reason. I was going about it right the entire time.
I have the best and as far as I know only aftermarket cooling available for the 580, and my temps are nice and low.
I'm at 936 core, 2232(4464) mem in afterburner, and still at max volts for my bios 1.15v. Couldn't play games for more than a few mins until 959 core stepping down from 1GHz, but would crash soon after (from 959). Once I got to 942 things seems to be stable, but hours of gaming made me crash so I lowered to 939. Many many hours of gaming and crashed again so lowered to 936.

All seems to be good, should keep the volt at my 1.15 though, right? if I get another crash lower to 933 and stay with 1.15?

I'm kinda' working backwards on my OC because my temps are so low, so I figured I should keep the max volt and back off on the core frequency from there. I didn't even touch my mem until stable (unfortunately 2232 in afterburner was as high as I could go with no reported errors in ATiTool under hours of testing)

Not really. With 1.138v i never get over 75C. If i increase fan to 100% i can put Max voltage even on air but my ears will not take it.
For Stability get is 3DMark stable first then play games. I got mine 925Mhz with 1.1v and was stable until i sow some small artifact in Metro, I added 1.125v and its 100% stable now. Dont bother with Kombustor. Its horrible for determining stable GPUs.

I've never even reached 70 on 1.15v
My fan is set on auto, should I manually set it to 100%?

do you guys see good improvements clocking higher than 900? my max is 915 not sure if 15 mhz justifies going from 1.075v to 1.1v.

The more the better. 1.1v is fine so u dont have to worry and keep it that way.

I noticed improvements in 959 core from the 936 core I'm currently at. The improvements aren't HUGE but you do notice them in benches.

I'm using a 580 though.
Watch your temps. Hours and hours of gaming can be an easy 10 degrees hotter than benching for an hour or two.

It's only a measly 15MHz, MAX it out! :-p

PS: download the Resident Evil 5 benchmark if you don't own the game. Max out your Nvidia global settings (32xAA etc, bla bla bla) and run the variable benchmark. It'll grayscreen within two loops if your clock is completely unstable, and should be able to run forever (12+ hours?) if your clock is completely stable

Your VRM's might be getting hammered at that much voltage. I remember that the Artic Accelero Xtreme's had pretty spotty VRM cooling.

Run the metro2033 benchmark on max settings for about 15 runs, if your GPU can handle that it is stable. Also no how many cards you have this is gonna max out your GPUs, so it is good for SLI testing.

Also this is why you don't use Furmark/Kombustor because they create unnatural vreg temps.
