Furmark crashes, other benchmarks work fine

Im trying to overclock my old gtx 980 without adding core voltage, it seems like after boosting +120 mhz core clock furmark test starts to crash after 1 minute but other benchmarks are running fine above that value without any artifacts.

Should i take msi kombustor furmark donut benchmark serious and left my core clock at 120 or increase the value until other benchmarks such as 3DMARK11 and Superposition crashes?

stop using Furmark, it's a useless program.

download Unigine Heaven, start a test in windowed mode, and let your card get to a point where temperature flattens out and stops increasing and it levels off. pause the scene with space bar, and the the test will pause but it'll keep rendering whatever scene you paused at.

bump up core by 5-10mhz and watch for artifacts. do that until you get artifacts, then back off. do that for core and then do the same for memory after.

for memory, after a point you will start to lose performance when you increase the clock. just watch both the FPS counter and watch the scene for artifacts, sometimes you lose performance before you get artifacts. stop when you get artifacts or FPS starts dropping, whichever happens first.

when you're done, do a few loops of 3DMark of any test you want. most people like Firestrike and Time Spy. If after a couple runs you still have no artifacts, then you're done.

Furmark does nothing and it's called a power virus for a reason, nothing your card does will ever stress it like Furmark and most cards will artificially limit themselves if the driver detects its running.

furmark is, and has been garbage for many moons. it's only purpose is max TDP, and GPU death.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
