Hello, friends. Can you help me? I'm trying to squeeze a little juice from my MSI gtx970 Gaming 4g. But I have this problem... I can clock my card to 1480 core and 4000 memory. It even passes stress tests =). Right after start card turboes to 1493 core and changes back to 1480 when temp reaches 65С. Also the temperature stops rising at 72C. If I give it some OV (40-60mv) it stop throttling and temp shots up (stopped test at 83C). Is it normal behavior? Is it safe? 

 

Right now I disabled OV, but ran into another problem. Card (1480 oc) can pass 1 hour of Furmark, 3DMark and Superposition, but games started to crash with errors after long sessions (something about shutting down the video driver). Some games crash (Overwatch on min settings and PC Building simulator) and some don't (FF XV and AC Origins).

 

Can someone share the experience with me, should I touch voltage, or is it better to just lower the frequency?

Right now I use safe 1470 core & 3995 memory preset and it works fine in games...

 

P.S. Sorry, not the best English, I know...

Don't OV, it's doesn't really help with current and last Gen nVidias.  Down-clocking is normal.  1493 will be your max GPU Boost frequency.  This will clock down.  It's the normal way GPU Boost works.  I pressume you already maxed the Power and Temp limit sliders?  These can help.  If it stops rising at 72C, praise be and thank the silicone lottery gods and decent cooling :) 


 With all the Trolls, Try Hards, Noobs and Weirdos around here you'd think i'd find SOMEWHERE to fit in!

Yes, I raised the limits in the very first place. In fact, I have advanced in setting up my card. I realized that raising the voltage increases the boost frequency of my card, even if the base frequency is untouched. The most stable frequency that my 970 can survive (without artifacts and crashes) is 1480mhz. So I lowered the voltage so that it does not affect the boost frequency, and raised the base frequency so that the boost frequency is 1480mhz. And now it never falls (survived 1 hour of FurMark)! I'm very happy!

 

P.S. I adjusted the fan curve and the temperature stops at 70~73C. Is it safe?

Yeah 70-73 is fine.  Founders/Reference cards usually sit at 80-83 all day without a hitch.  Don't worry 👌

Which particular flavour of 1080ti do you have?  The Armor? Or is it a reference one?

Armor, But put a Aio on it never gets over 60 now and getting 2075ish clock in benchmarking compared to less than 1800

Hello. This is my first post on the LTT forums so I don't know if this is the right place to put this but I'm having a problem.

A few days ago I started up my PC and as usual Overclocked my HD6850 (Using MSI afterburner) as I normally do to get half way decent performance from games. I could care less about noise so I crank the GPU's fan speed to max and let it sit to cool down for a little bit without playing any games. I  usually got a great 36 Degrees Celsius but today I'm getting no lower then 42 idle (which I know is still OK but it worries me that its gotten higher) degrees, my screen is artifacting and looks like it's tearing up when I increase core clock,( Made sure the cable is secure) and my performance in games has gone down a ton. Have I fried my GPU or do you think there is something making it get hotter and preform worse?

I was messing around with my old gaming system to see if I could get it to run fortnite and I did get it to work. but when I tryed to overclock my graphics card to get better fps the textures got blurry did I do something wrong? The game still runs normaly but the texture got blurry? 

Evga GTX 460 768mb 

I5-3550

It could be the VRAM but I dont see why over clocking would make it worse.

This is what my "Lite" version of "GTX 1080 Ti" aka GTX 1070 Ti can do aircooled, this card has got some damn fantastic air cooler on it.

Its not even near Power Limit or Temp Limit, card just refuces to go beyond 2126Mhz and by "refuces" i mean it wont go beyond no matter what i put into "Clock Offset", time to try K Boost mode soon.

Had my Gigabyte GTX1070 G1 v1.0 for a couple of months now but only just decided to see if I can what i can push it to.

 

Here are my results. Cant seem to fault the overclock, yet. Stressed tested with both OCCT and MSI Kombuster.

Also wondering are these good numbers for a GTX1070 OC?

I've got 150MHz stable on the core of my MSi Armor OC 1070 but I couldn't get 500MHz stable in heaven on my RAM (so settled on 450MHz)

 

Out of curiosity, what does GPU-Z report your RAM back as?  Samsung or Micron?

I was able to get 150 running Kombuster with no artifacts detected but when I ran OCCT i got errors. So dropped it back to 130 and both ran with out errors.

 

GPU-Z reports it as Micron.

NOT A KINGPIN just a skin

my OptiPlex 7040 MT

I was screwing around today and started playing with the clock speed and ram speed to see what it had I end up stable at 1809 and 3600 running the same loads and it never broke 62c with the fans on auto do you think it has a lot more or is it not worth pushing it farther being a 75 watt slot powered evga 1050ti

the temperatures are quite nice but i guess you overstressed the system to much.. maybe its the age too gl with that!

Can anyone give me an idea of what the best overclock levels for a passively cooled 9600 GT Silent Cell card would be? And what software is best for overclocking beginners? I've never overclocked any of my GPU's before and have chosen this expendable card for testing. Hopefully, I should be able to push it enough to see some sort of fps boost with Unigine's Valley. haha

Is it safe to overclock my 1080 Ti? I've heard the 1080 Ti uses GPU Boost and manual OC won't make any difference? Also heard the 1080 Ti was so pushed for performance, that there's barely any headroom to OC?

 

Is it true?

My MSI GTX 1070 Overclock settings:

I couldn't push the memory much further as around 300 I get really obvious artefacts. Is +180/250 decent for msi 1070?

Hi guys, this is my first time posting on the forum so i'm not sure this is the right place. Hopefully it is.

2 months ago I build my first ever PC. Posted it on builds.gg if you want to check it out :)https://builds.gg/builds/mighty-micro-6596

 

Since then, I have read and watched as much as I could and this past weekend i felt ready to explore the OC world. I have a 1070 Ti Cerberus A8G and after 3 days of messing with MSI Afterburner, i think i pushed it to the max for stability. Wanted to post my results and also get some feedback on things i could do better and if you guys were able to push yours further. 

 

PC specs:

i7 8700k @ 4.7Ghz all cores

16GB Corsair vengeance 3000Mhz

Asus 1070 Ti Cerberus A8G

970EVO 250GB NVme

1.2TB Intel SSD 

 

Process:

I used a combination of Kombustor, valley, Superposition (the game mode is fun) as well as firestrike. But mostly kombustor as i like how it has an artifact meter that goes crazy when you go over the limit. I would also play BF5 (Campaign) & Forza H4 (built in benchmark) in between for real world testing.

 

MSI AB settings: unlocked voltage control and monitoring, enabled force constant voltage, maxed out core voltage and a hefty fan curve to stay at 70C under full load.

 

At first, i didn't want to touch the core voltage but when i reached +180 on core, boost wouldn't go any higher as it was hitting stock voltage of 1.062V. I figured since i got a binned card, it could probably handle more voltage. 

 

In this screenshot, i was making final adjustments for stability. When i started this session, the core clock was +235 and memory clock +350. Artifacts would come up every 6-8mins. I started going down on the OC by -5 until i settled on what you see +220 on core and +330 on memory. At the time of screenshot, it had been a good 30mins since the artifact counter hadn't gone up. I ran it for another 30mins for good measure and it was good.

This is Pre-OC. my stock clocks were 1847 on the core and 4006(8012) on memory.

Pre-OC.thumb.PNG.ecac2cb09128b8c48f6e200c690e9619.PNG

 

Post Stable-OC. my current stable OC numbers are 2088 on the core and 4333(8666) on memory.

OC.thumb.PNG.f60b9f2a6dc933e4b19c02d5a18b1157.PNG

 

 

Conclusion:

In benchmarks and in games, i gained about 10fps from the OC. I don't know why but 10 doesn't get me too hyped given the hours put into it or maybe that's about what is expected when you overclock. 

What do you guys think ? Do these numbers sound about right for a 1070 Ti ? Can I get more fps by messing with the clocks differently ? I pushed the core clock more than memory as i read the higher the better for games vs memory.

 

All in all, this was a fun experience. I am able to play BF5 on high settings @60-75Hz on my LG 38" 1440p+ ultrawide. 

 

I learned a lot and looking forward to my next card.

 

Thanks
