I've got mine running at 625/1512/1188 right now. Shaders make the biggest difference with this card. Temps in games are in the 70's with auto fan, but Furmark can make it get into the 90's with auto fan.

Thanks mate, Ill crank up those shaders. You using ATi Tool to test?

Added to the list, thought It be nice to make a list

Furmark seems to stress the GPUs much harder, so that's what I use. ATI tool has never worked right for me anyway.

Just received my gtx295 yesterday so I'm really happy. I'm on 620/1495/1197 and still testing for the ultimate results... My fan runs at 75% 24/7.

Should be lol, when I pumped mine to 66%, sounded like a F-16 taking off! Was crazy loud!

Well... I'm kinda used to it now lol. Just making sure this baby its running cool

Just curious huh, what programs are u guys using for OCing? And what are some good programs for running stability tests? I know that furmark is one, vantage and 06...

I'm using EVGA Precision Tool, and using Vantage to check for Artifacts and heat. ATi Tool can also be used to test, and of course Crysis as well

edit; to a admin, Can I get this moved to Nividia OC forum, wrong area sorry.

At least one of the clocks you've cited is 'impossible' ... use the Rivatuner graphs so you can see what the actual speeds are that your card is running at. Your shaders, for example, are either at 1476 or at 1512, they physically cannot be run at 1495


My current, stable clocks are: 675/1476/2448. I can eeek out 1512 if I want to on shaders, but it doesn't seem to help any of my scores, so I keep it 'em at 1476. I've also run it at ... I wanna say ... 691(-ish?) on the core before as well, and it's okay on some tests, but it barfs on like a crysis bench run.

My temps are usually around 50/52C idle, and under the most extreme conditions (like playing warhead on all 'enthusiast' with 4xAA, in the ice covered levels) it'll top out around 90C. More 'normal' games like CoD4 I usually see temps in the high 70's/low 80's.

I do run the fans on auto, but I've turned down the minimum fan speed to 36% instead of 40%. This causes the temps to be a little higher than they would be, both at idle, and at load. But at 36% I cannot hear it over the case fans, so that's how I like it.

I think these cards totally rock, btw. Never held a card in my hand that felt as 'well-built' as one of these things ...

Added to the list, Just asking, What is your GPU score in Vantage?

edit, nvm XP SP2, sorry didn't see that! Nice OC though!

I've got 2 of them, XFX and Zotac.
Will do 648/1566/stock if I can keep the below 90°c
I never oc the mem, aways seems like the first component to go on NV cards, so I won't mess with it.

Currently running 630/1512/stock, cards are stacked so I've got one running in the 90's with 100% fan speed.

I'll post some benchmarks later on.

Here is a screen shot i took a couple days ago of my clocks on both my GPUs. Still folding stable on these and been gaming COD4 and EndWar not one crash or lockup. Temps never go above 70c-74C on air

730 CORE CLOCK? On Stock volts, and air? Golden GFX card

Not to mention that 100% fan speed CRAZY LOUD?

Roger that ECHO5, you are clear for takeoff, full throttle up! (<--F16 taking off with that noise!)

I've managed *unofficially* 648/512/1212 stable in games, 3Dmark06 and Futuremark. But for [email protected], I have to drop my shader down to 1476. Therefore, my official 100% stable stettings are 648/1476/1212. This without any voltage tweaking.
