can you do one with a good oc?
I will see what I can do in a little while as I just woke up.
thats cool, I assumed it was stock, are you able to run it at 1920x1080 thats the more common resolution now. 1920x1200 will have more of a performance hit
i do. im playing around with a few atm. just trying acquire another 580 and i remember he said something a while back about having excess video cards.
you missed his 580 lightning sale a while back $380 I believe
I can scale down to it and rerun at that resolution as well.
yea i saw that. i was just checking the fs thread.
default target is 170W, +32% =>224.4W which is safe limit on 2x6 pin
if you leave power limit and offset value default, card'll try to reach 170W(100%) and clocks accordingly..*
if you crank power limit up to 225W(132%) and leave offset 0, card'll try to reach 195W.. even it has more power room it wont be clocked because of default offset value..*
and finally if you set power limit to 225w(132%) and set offset to 150MHz or something won't be short to reach power limit, card will clock to max as long as temperature allows..
above 70C card try to lower clock speed..*
of course all these situations are assumed there is power room to boost the clocks.. otherwise, card'll stay 1006MHz even if it consumes 200W, never throttles under 1006MHz as long as it wont reach 98C..
Here you are. Heaven Benchmark, Extreme @ Stock, 1920x1080, 16x AF, 8x AA

thats almost 20% better than my cards at oc 910mhz. cant wait for oc test

what does this have to do with anything? its an out of the box feature.
Because nVidia explains how to overclock the cards.....and Darren was having issues doing so.
probably better to quote his post lol
That's on page 4, with a link to the whitepaper.
the post just kinda looked out there is all. no offence intended bro:cheers:
No prob. Just figured it'd make things a bit easier for others having issues if I just posted it in the thread instead of expecting them to actually read the whitepapers.
I thuoght i would set up sli before i killed one somehow.
1 card does not run as much voltage(dmm) as other and different clocks are in osd sometimes.
3d11 sli at clocks listed
1 is set to auto fan the other has a h70 on it.
stock card hit around 76c even with good airflow around it
stock clocks but set fan to 85%
ran a 55k with oc but it had six6six in the gpu score so i did not save it
not sure if clock took but i did not crash before this run
Here is My score SLI 680 @ Stock clocks
Put it up here to compare with others + check there are running as they should
^^^have a oc run we can see bro?
