The thing about factory OCed video card is every once in a while 1 or 2 cards will not be fully stable and stutter.
If its factory OC'd then it should be stable and not stutter? I dont see why you said that? What cooling did it have to start with?

dual fans but, there area quite a few posts here on OCN where people complain about stutter on factory oced cards, they told to download an OC utility, under clock and low and behold and the stuttering stops. the binning/testing procedures at the factory aren't always perfect. then again defective products are nothing new. tongue.gif

Yeah, I have personally had a pretty hit or miss experience with factory OC cards and stability.

Wow I never realised , I've always been lucky I guess. If I got a card that stuttered out of the box I'd return it, wouldn't you? rolleyes.gif

I probably was just unlucky, but yes they were RMA'd. A couple had weird issues like only crashing in Blizzard games but running other stuff (source engine) fine.

ypu certain game engines ultilize only certain parts of the gpu.

While technically somewhat correct that is a very crude statement to make. Of course not all engines utilise the full potential and the full feature-set of a GPU, but that's got little to do with them not utilising all "parts" of the GPU. As long as there is no bottleneck between the GPU and CPU and the game doesn't implement VSync in software, the GPU will render as many frames as possible. It is very unlikely that Blizzard games use a certain feature inside the GPU that no other game engine uses which somehow gets unstable with higher clocks. The problem is quite certainly a lot more delicate than that. Maybe they use it way more often than other engines, maybe it's a certain combination of functional units that had a small manufacturing error which only comes into play at high clocks and when they're all used at once.

Added you. Is that a FlexATX psu or a custom one? and could you confirm the dimensions of the optiplex case? Is it 340 x 314 x 93 mm at 9.9L?

Setup is as followed:
Intel Core i5 4690k
EVGA Z97 Stinger WIFI
16GB Kingston FURY 1866
ASUS GTX 970 Mini
Silverstone SX600
Corsair H50
Intel 530 180GB SSD
2x WD Blue 1TB
NCASE M1 V3

Pic above has it running with the Noctua-NH-U9B-SE2, however, CPU and HDD temps were a bit on the high side after some time of gaming so I swapped in a spare Corsair H50 and added a 92mm fan blowing on the two HDDs and temps are somewhat better.

Nice case. You should have tried the Noctua cooler horizontally so it sucks air across the hdds instead of sucking in hot air from the gpu
