This is making me wish the RMA would come quicker for my mobo!
Im at 810/2025/1210 on mine. Has not crashed or gotten any artifacts in 3d mark benchies or games. Could probably push it further too. Was actually running crysis at 1300 on mem and it was running well but it had a few artifacts so ill probably push it further once my evga 750i FTW comes in!
Best my card could muster is 760 / 1900 / 1150.
I pumped it up to 775 / 1938 / 1175 and the screen starts to go black in the middle of gameplay and it took a second to refresh the screen.
I'm going to clock it down to 750 / 1875 / 1150 and just leave it at that. It's not worth putting the card at risk for one more FPS.
Ok so the SSC edition is FAST im getting stable...
considering im on a descent Core 2 Duo and pulling 15250 in 3d Mark 2006 i'm very pleased with this card!!
Off topic, would you share your SSC bios? Mine stable at SSC speed and I wanna it like that all time so I don't have to set it every time. Thanks!
Point is, you'll have a lot of people asking what it is every time you post and you'll have to respond to them. Not worth making the small point over it not being a 9800gtx.
It's alright. I'll just tell them EVGA made the 8900GTX just for me. I'm special lolz :banana:
Why call it a 8900 when it is not??
Nvidia called it a 9800, Its not the same as a 8800gts 512, therfore its a 9800..lol.
EVGA 9800 GTX
I don't see why people get so worked up over names, who cares. You're going to look at the specs and buy based on those anyway.
Just a reminder, the RAM is designed as GDDR3 1200MHz VRAM, so anything less than that is underclocked!
Guess my BFG card is "underclocked" for a reason then, since my system freeze in games etc when I go over 1130.
It's not even getting hot.
My 9800GTX runs at 810mhz core, 2025mhz shaders and 2420mhz memory stable.
My CPU may be dragging my gamming experience though.
Mine is BFG, goes to 800/2010/2400. But i use 780/1950/2300 just to be safe.

Oh but they are worthy of the name, it's those 8 series G92's that are in the wrong series.
Seriously if nVidia had displayed the slightest hint of common sense they would have called the 8800GT 9800GT instead (which technically speaking it is) and spared us the pointless debates and questions like "why is it called 8800GT, since it's faster than the (G80) GTS?" Answer: because it's not supposed to be the same series. "Whys is it cheaper?" Because nVidia don't want to see ATi undersell them (and because it has a shoddy cooler). Why is it not called 8900GT or 9800GT then?" Because nVidia prefers to launch a new series from the top (GTX first) and the first edition of the G92 couldn't handle high enough clocks until recently to make a model worthy of the GTX suffix. "Why is the 9800GTX cheaper than the 8800GTX?" ATi, there is your answer. And the 9800GTX is not cheaper than the 8800GTX now, it's cheaper than what the 8800GTX used to cost before the 9800GTX came along.
BTW my clock speeds are stock and my card is from Asus. It was slightly overpriced at $359.99 (Asus makes you pay for the jumbo box I guess) but it was the only 9800GTX my computer shop had in stock the day I paid a visit. It was from a canceled order, lucky break so I wasn't gonna haggle for $12.99 over list price (for the Asus model in the US). Don't want/need to OC it for the moment as it performs quite well.
I'm just running the clocks to the left
