    EVGA OSD will display what the driver runs at. Refer to GPU-Z sensor data to get the clock the clock generator is producing. As the clock entered will be auto-corrected by the clock generator.

    Don't worry about the calculator because all it does is give u the bumped clocks which do nothing more than require more voltage. Just do it the way I do it to minimize the voltage requirement since the clock generator does the calculations fermi calculator would do automatically.

    It should be 1000Mhz core and 2000Mhz shader, as well as 2052Mhz memory. How are you flashing the gpu bios? It needs to be done in nvflash so it will be done the right way and report correctly.

    Do re-paste anything in terms of cores, just put a dot big enough that you know for sure that with your index finger you can spread over the whole entire chip. The 550 Ti has that outer lip which needs paste too since it'll give more contact surface to transfer heat meaning lower temps than stock. Don't use a glove use your bare skin with Arcrtic Silver Ceramique 2 since it's ceramic. To re-paste the voltage regulators, remove the thermal interface material from the heatsink and clean the voltage regulators and heatsink spotless. Then apply a thin layer across the entire contact surface of the voltage regulator heatsink to get 25-45% better heat transfer, meaning lower vreg temps for improved stability. With that vreg heatsink you have we could push to 1050-1100 with additional volts if u re-paste the vregs like i said.

    From what you said it's only covering half, pick up some copper heatsinks and add them manually to all the voltage regulators, or find a big copper one to cover them all and 1-2 small ones to cover the others. That's the only way to extend the life of the card indefinitely and push the clocks into the extreme realm.

    Good luck

    flashed it using the stuff you gave me via usb dos boot disk
    that readout is form the nvidia driver control panel on linux
    it is at 1125 millivolts...

    Okay since your on linux. That's cool it'll report whatever it sees could be wrong could be right. Use GPU-Z to be 100% sure and update to the latest nvidia drivers.

    To Stress test one run of 3dmark11 is sufficient. Then game it up on your favorite games for hours to be sure.

    What are your idle/ load temps in Celsius?

    Your thoughts on the increase in performance? I found that 1000mhz on the 550 Ti made a world of difference in frame rate could be as much as 20 fps faster than stock.

    heaven on set on ultra with x8 AA without no tessellation @ 720p
    fan speed is being increased using msi afterburner

    only way i can OC this card on linux is to flash it, which is why i posted here
    @ stock i got 28FPS at that part of heaven under those settings

    ............

    Sorry for using this old topic but i have a problem, maybe someone can help me...

    I have some strange throttling while playing older games souch as cs 1.6, Rise of nations etc...

    Those games become choppy and laggy while playing because gpu ist working at full capacity. When switch to desktop, lag continues untill i run some furmark or something similar that awake the card. Tried everything driver/other software solutions but it is not woking..

    So i think maximising the bios clocks of 2d and 3d performance will fix the problem..

    Can you help me?

    Hi guys, please tell me what is the P-STAGE and P-Level I will really appreciate a detailed response?
    What means "P"fermi bios editor

    and what "bumped shader"?Explain that this is the effect on performance?Or discussion died here????
