6950 CF BSOD with AB and Trixx - Page 2

post #11 of 21
If you want to OC with CFX use the method outlined here: http://www.overclock.net/ati/923129-...hz-shader.html

I'm OCing this way and using Afterburner purely as a monitoring/OSD tool.

Do you guys use GPUTool to test for stability?
I just put my cards at 1GHz and ran 30min Furmark, 3dmark11, Heaven bench, and played 2hrs of BC2.

You know what, I never tried this without disabling ULPS. I am going to do a system reformat here soon as I am going RAID 0 on two new hard drives. I will try it out WITHOUT ULPS disabled. I will post back with results.

Thanks. Would be nice if you could leave ULPS enabled with the CCC hack method.

Should take my idle wattage down below 100.

Although this is a good method of overclocking, it requires you to flash your BIOS with an ASUS BIOS. The registry hack method is the best as you do not have to tweak your BIOS at all if you do not want to. The only tweak will be to unlock shaders if you prefer.

The registry edit didn't work for me. After I merged them the GPU Clock slider was missing but the memory slider was longer. I think I'm going to give MSI AB another shot now that I've reformatted.

Edit: MSI AB is working now.

Edit 2: It took forever but I think sticking with 920/1350 @ 1.16v. It looks like it gets to 89-90c. After 1.16v if I bump up either core/mem it I get errors in GPUtool. I also tried 930/1350 but that wasn't stable even at 1.175 so I don't think raising my voltage will do me much good. I only did my current clocks for 10 minutes on GPUtool and the real test will be when I play DA2 tomorrow. I figure at worst I may have to bump up voltage a little bit. I will be very very very sad if it crashes a lot.

Green card, do you have anything to monitor your GPU clocks and memory while your game or benchmark is running? For example, I use MSI AB to display stuff in my logitech G15 keyboard.
If you have that or a second monitor, run something full screen and monitor your GPU clocks and memory. I am assuming you are using MSI AB to overclock both cards. I would like to know after a computer restart if you see one of your GPU drop it clocks back down to stock. Also, monitor the temperature on both cards right after you restart your computer. I would like to know if the temperature on one keeps climbing as if it is under load (or better yet check the GPU usage) without anything graphically intensive (game, benchies) running.

I just checked out the options for AB and see I can have stuff display on my G15 LCD. Awesome When I restart my computer the speeds do go back to stock and I have to load my profile and apply them. I know AB will put a card at load when it starts up but that does seem to stop after a couple minutes and I read other people have had that problem. Is that what you were referring to?

Guess as long as you are willing to deal with that, then it is all good.

For me, the second card never went to idle unless I start furmark or Kombustor or something similar and exit it.

It is pretty lame. I guess I was wrong because it didn't go away after a few minutes though GPU-z does stop the card from staying at load. I don't have much choice though because this is the only way I have been able to successfully overclock and I would like to keep ULPS. Also I gave you +rep for helping me from the beginning

Well I'm using AB to monitor my GPU clocks while I play DA2 and it will randomly jump around. It will go anywhere from 6xx - 920mhz. I have made sure I had powertune +20%, raised voltage to 1.175, and changed PC settings to high performance. This doesn't happen when I use 3DMark 11/GPUtool or play AvP.

Edit: Can anyone guess who was only changing the Powertune setting for one card?
