O/Cing GTX 580 - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
I really only wanted to flash my BIOS so I wouldn't need to keep the software installed to overclock the cards.

I absolutely will NOT flash the BIOS if it is unstable. So that's out of the question right now until that is solved.

Without any overclock, Blackops ran fine without any issues. I don't know why 900/2100 at 1.1v didn't work... especially at <50C?

temps arent the only factor, sometimes the GPU just cant go to that setting without more or less volts and sometimes there are little "dead spots" that the GPU simply will refuse to stabilize for no real reason. This happens to CPUs as well.

How is that possible? The core clock is like the "main brain" of the GPU. Am I missing something?

its going to take easy 1.12 to 1.13 to get 900 core and 2100 on the ram if not more depending on each card. 1.14 i could get mine up to 925 core and 2100 ram. Plus i would not use furmark as its actually bad for the card and isnt the best test to check if its ok.

Well, it is unstable since you don't know the really long term effects of your overclocked settings. Okay, it can be usefull for playing several hours or so, but playing every game at the overclocked speed is overkill in my opinion. You'll just wear down your gpu and VRMs. I play most games just at stock speed (810 mhz), but Metro and some games that require some more because of too little memory at the oc speed.
Bios flashing isn't really unstable. But permanently running at extremely high clock speeds which haven't been tested thoroughly can be. But that's just my opinion.

@Oupavoc, why isn't it a good tester and bad for the card?

Well I think there is a core, but not a seperate clock. Both clocks are linked permanently. So you only need to adjust the shader clock. But in progs like Afterburner, you can adjust the core clock, and shader clock will follow. But in Nvidia Inspector you can not change the core clock, just the shader clock, but you will see that core clock will also follow up on that. So, sure, they both exist i guess, just not separated anymore, but permanently locked with shader clock as main clock.

Core is always the mainclock and the shader is linked to it. Furmark is bad because it puts the GPU in a unnatural stress situation same as OCCT. Id recommend the OP to download Heaven 2.1 and run a full benchmark run with it. The stress is equalent to the most demanding games to come and it also test for stability without going monkey poo on your card.

And what exactly makes furmark and OCCT so extreme? Very useful info though. What does it use what realtime progs don't?
