Has anyone tested flashing Gaming OC bios on Windforce OC? To gain higher PL?
I'm currently using beta bios F4 - with 122% power limit. The latest one (F7) has lowered limit to 108%, so I've went back to F4_beta.
So I wonder if Gaming OC bios with even higher power limit will run on my card...
The card is running on water, reaching 1890 clocks. Temps are under 50 during heavy load.
Yeah your card never goes above 60C-62C at 65% fan while gaming yet your superposition screenshot shows 67C with fan at 100% and it only takes a couple minutes for a single superposition run. There is no way your card runs 60C overclocked or stock during gaming at ~30C ambient. Yeah, I said it.
My card never goes over 60c ever, with my fan locked at 40% and running at 2000+
I was able to keep the back and front (inner) plates.
Due to the front plate there's a small gap between the bracket and the card, but tests proved there's enough contact, so not a problem.
Due to lower temps OC is now stable at 2190/2175Mhz on benchmarks.
Max bench temps dropped @ 15C, but on a way silent card now.
This also proved FTW3 stock cooler is pretty good.
Any questions let me know
Turns out my OC curve was not 100% stable. While it passed Superposition runs, I noted occasional artifacts on 3 scenes of Heaven Benchmark doing 1 hour runs, which I do not consider stable.
But because I also improved my temps changing the GPU radiator to push exhaust (was intake before), even with an one step lower OC curve, core clocks stayed stable at 2175 Mhz with 2190 peak, and I was also able to bump memory OC to 8250 Mhz, which resulted on a even better Superposition score =)
