Very low score and strange problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi i am new to forums as well as to overclocking in gerneral.

So i tried to overclock my gtx 260 (also overclocked cpu a little). My score on vantage before overclocking was really low, i looked on other people scores that have the same video card and it was like 3 times less than avarage score. The thing is that after overclocking card and cpu about 20% i get lower score! Please explain me that cause i don't understand - why those low scores, what do i need to do... thanks very much.

Look at the picture to see the scores and my specs:

Dude that cpu is heavily bottlenecking your card. Unless you update it you won't see a lot of improvement. Oh my god, tell me that the cpu.z vcore is wrong because what I'm seeing is 1.856v! Your cpu will not hold out much longer I suggest you lower your vcore right away. And it would be nice if you included the rest of your components such as the mobo, psu etc etc.

Ill look at bios but i didn't change vcore, i just did set it to auto-oc 20%, and now its auto 10%. Cpuz must be wrong. Ill post more info later. But i did manage to get about 13000 in vantage with 682/1470/1280, gpu at 710 gives "Driver stoped working" error.

edit: thinks that voltage is default when set to auto so its must be ok. http://twitpic.com/3w5xmd, highest score i can get http://twitpic.com/3w62d5
