32Mark OC gpu, score goes down

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, tried to overclock my gpu a little today as for the first time i ran 3dmark11 on my system. scored 6297(GPU score 6014, Physics score 8628). overclocked and score dropped to 6253(GPU score 5980, Physics score 8542). Am i just not giving it enough V and its an unstable overclock? Never tried overclocking the gpu at all really. previous owner said he got 950/2250 under 1.2 and highest V i can go is 1.15 in afterburner. any help would be cool. thanks!

How much is 'a little'? Kinda need to know that point. And did you try it multiple times? Sometimes there's some variability in the test score. And it's unlikely you'd need to raise volts for a little OC, honestly.

scores are never consistant, too many background processes are running, to determine an 'exact' consistant score will be impossible. Run it three times and work out the average. Run a gaming benchmark to see whether or not you see changes in fps when you overclocking, you will have to run a number of times before cnocluding any real performance gain when overclocking the gpu
