Thanks..

Looking forward to it..

Just watch out for the ending of New Calico (ships return to earth/planet), its a bottleneck.. And the gpus like to get hot in that section, and u lose OC potential.. If u running air, and the 6900 series..

Nice score X Pack. More bench coming?

thanks..



hehe, who knows.. ;o)

Think i will take a global cup placement in Vantage..

Maybe futuremark hall of fame, 7950, i think that will be the only 7950 in there.. havent checked so much..

Not, i must, or i need.. just if..

2 be honest, i dont know my way around at hwbot.. just bench randomly, and submit scores sometimes..

What are the temps on the GPU? If I remember correctly (don't have my notes with me), the GTX560 Ti's core was suggested to be kept under 70C to prevent throttling... I know, you're playing with the 7950, but does it has such throttling temp?

I know the limits (clean score) for this card now, its around 1300 mhz, and around 1700 mhz, on ram.. with my cooling (for now)..

I will try the other cards as well, and see which is the best clocker, and place it as top-gpu, in my multi config..

Dual 680,,, thats power...^^ Nice

Here are my temps (short run 1280), at 1300mhz, 1 single 7950, at 950mhz they are at 35c

Fully maxxed mega load at 1300mhz, peak> 41c

will have to wait and see the temps on 3 gpu,s... are they to high, lets mod..

haha, no i did NOT add the music!! it was the background.. i am not that ambitious..

O that music, put a bullet in my head, lol.
That is some nice temps, I ordered blocks this week, if it doesn't give me any headroom at least I can bench in peace and quiet, want to try the hex editor that some are using on AB to up the volts on these funny looking Lightning cards, got a funny looking hump on the back they call a reactor, and there not even red and black. They'll have to do for now I am tired of buying and selling 680's trying to get good overclocker's and not having any luck.

Yes they were made by a request from some owners on overclock.net, thru Sidewinder computer, enough people placed an advanced order to have them built, some were not purchased so I got 2 by chance. I have to reconfigure my loop or split into 2 loops now.

Water cooling this time... What a blessing........

will add some glycol in the water, and connect 4 pcs, 5m pipes/tubings to the rad's (a la polar pipes), and take the air from outside (-25c), this what i think...

i am a little worried about the pumps..

Its going to be a wall of chill........

1300 mhz at 41c.. Going to be great to see if -25c, can make the numbers a little better..

+100 with default voltage and memory. But in the process of this, it may appear to me that the result was not right. I wasnt sure now if I OC the CPU. Sorry folk, my apology.

Menthol
09-15-2012, 10:57 PM
Dual cards typically get higher scores than dual GPU card. They are clocked higher from the get go and overclock higher. Your CPU overclock will improve the combined result score quit a bit so comparing the GPU scores may be a better comparison especially with different CPU's. Overclocking GPU memory improves results on Kelper more than it did in previous Nvidia cards because of the narrower memory bus. So I would say both scores are in line and very good.

Zka17, absolutely the same league my friend, you can get get that with your 670 and one of your overclocked CPU's , I think you have been working your way thru CPU and memory overclock experiments(and doing a damn fine job of it, I'm sure I'm not the only one that watches your thread) and have just not gotten around to your GPU yet.

get the 3dmark11 and/or advantage demo ( dont have to pay for it ) but you cant do pro unless you pay for it.

in demo/trial you cant change mutch realy, you will get up a window that tells you if you want to purcase it every time you open the program, just ignore it.

But it will be the same, I presume, as your 480... needing new BIOS if you want to push it or.....it has contact points for connecting to RIVE by soldering wires and then I think you can go to town......having voided the warranty of course haha;)

Yes, when running 3 gpu, my limit indoors, are 1230 mhz, for the gpus. 1 psc gpu = 1300mhz (vantage)

will attach radiator shoruds, and force outside air into the rads, with one of those tubing/vent fans, but no hurry..

Cant you build like a air conditioner, and hook up vent tubing that way?

Shall i also include a Swedish Blondie, in that parcel?

Arne Saknussemm

I have AC but the vents come in at the top of the rooms and I have high ceilings. I saw a pic of your polar intake....good stuff....I don't know....maybe if I get the benching bug bad I'll have to try something with ice water....

I wont say no to Swedish Blondie :D but I hear they increase temps....especially in SLI!!

I didn't touch the GPU RAM.....does that help much?

Zka17, I feel fine it's my CPU I worry for!

Rockford

Yes, the ram OC, actually boost the score, very noticeably..

Arne Saknussemm
09-20-2012, 07:18 PM
Interesting! OK, so maybe I can squeeeze a bit more out......I'll have to investigate and go for another run..

Many thanks X Pack !! I'll see what I can do.....can't really overvolt the card at the moment I wonder if those values are done through hotwire etc.

Rockford

Yes, they might.. some of them..


Dont aim for those ram OC, but you see how other people oc..

The dp outputs are great..

In the past it was a mess running 3d marks with multi screens..

Now its working great..

i am using..

2 X dp
1 X dvi

Arne Saknussemm
09-21-2012, 09:24 AM
Tried RAM OC yesterday and got up to 1602 before bed time..... still more investigating to go on that front......I can't be bothered with multi screen just got one big hi-res one instead.....and sit close!!;) Any difference between DP and Dual DVI? performance wise?

By the way Vantage is a bit boring to sit through.....prefer unigine or 11visually..

Arne Saknussemm
09-21-2012, 02:02 PM
Hmmm with the help of OC man XPack :

11899

My graphics score has gone up ~800 points....seems my GPu is happy to oc memory on the stock volts but not so much core....that's the same 1262 The CPU has dropped though! ~300 points is that normal?

Whatever...the only way is up!:D

Rockford
09-21-2012, 02:34 PM
Nice...

yes, the score change from run to run..

sometimes a nice run, sometimes not..

Very nice score Arne....

Arne Saknussemm
09-21-2012, 03:06 PM
Thanks for the tips! OK, so the runs can differ a bit...I'll try to find my max memory OC and then try a few runs to see if I can break 43000 :) and then I'll have to get a second card hehe :D

Zka17
09-21-2012, 03:37 PM
Good job, Arne! Just keep doing it...

I just started to play with my GTX670 and I found an interesting thing... memory (RAM of the whole system) settings does have a big impact on scores! Until now I was running them at the XMP settings (introduced manually), but when I lowered the speed (to 2400MHz from 2600MHz), the 3DMark11 score went up! So, all I'm trying to say here is, when you think that you upped everything on the VGA, take some time and play with the RAM... (I assume, the CPU is maxed out)

Arne Saknussemm
09-21-2012, 03:44 PM
Hmmm that's interesting too! Thanks! I have some Ram that runs 1600 xmp I'll have to run it at stock and see...I suppose I will have to move up to a kit at 1866 or 2133 one day....:)

Zka17
09-21-2012, 04:37 PM
Again, it's a good idea to look around HWBOT results... I saw this RAM thing there, that everyone is running it a lower speeds, so I just tried... - and "everyone" was right... :cool:

Rockford
09-21-2012, 04:39 PM
Here is my 43k score, check my ram freq ;o)

5060 ghz

it was not a good run, considering.. but

Zka17
09-21-2012, 04:45 PM
Yeap, that's what I'm talking about! Just for validation, could you increase the RAM frequency? Leave everything else as it is, just to see if the score would go down - as I would predict...

One thing though, we should not forget here... I'm on a Z77 system, with a 3770k... that means, the my memory is running/can run at very high frequencies... In your case, Arne and X Pack, with the X79 system things may be a little different...

Rockford
09-21-2012, 04:47 PM
Yes, my default is> 1960 mhz

I down-clocked the ram in that profile... and loosen up ram some..

It was more of a test..

as you can see, i scored slightly lower than Arne on the cpu, but i was 5060 ghz..

That can have many different causes..

Zka17
09-21-2012, 04:51 PM
Thanks, X Pack! That's good to know... :cool:

Rockford
09-21-2012, 11:47 PM
Damn.. i had a urge for benchmark..

Opened all the windows, army boots, and the kit..

5.080 ghz, 1285/1630.. clean run, no pxl error.. And the numbers was totally crazy..

I can only do speculating, when its comes to score.. And this wasnt bad..

After the last cpu test, when everything was complete.. Poooooooooooo... power out.. I gues the psu did not like that completely..

Could have been, slightly 2 low vcore also..



U win some, lose some.. Tomorrow its a new day. This is what makes is fun..

Its only a matter of time..

The great with 3 gpu, is that i can disable 1, and run all the 3d marks, in standard crossfire also..

Arne Saknussemm
09-22-2012, 06:57 AM
Ahh man! bad luck.....but sure you'll get it next run.

I just made one myself..

Still cant OC the gpu.s, as hard as i want, due to lack of chill for the moment.. And to go 5,2-5.3 ghz, only to score on the cpu.. No..

This forum is not represented in there..

Zka17
09-22-2012, 03:18 PM
I agree with X Pack! We should have our own team... I know, right now i don't have yet enough competitive scores (as I'm running older hardware), but soon! :cool: Then I will be happy to be part of the team...

There are some Asus-related teams on the HWBOT... one of them is "Asus Republic of Gamers" - 8 Pack from this forum is a member there... he is a very good guy and he is doing really well when it's about OC'ing...

Should think about a new team name...

Rockford
09-22-2012, 03:26 PM
Yes i know that team..

But that team is not the "mainstream slobs" in here...

8 pack is active in here, the others i dont know..

drop a line to Marshall, and ask if its ok?

yes, rub you cells, and find a name.. ;o)

Zka17
09-22-2012, 03:36 PM
But then you have already a team... you could play in two teams in the same time?

Regarding the team name... combining the ROG (Republic of Gamers) + overclocking = "Republic of Overclockers"

Rockford
09-22-2012, 03:51 PM
The team is no prob, i am represented in another name at hwbot also..

So i can swap user x pack to the new team.. and delete that old team..

No, keep the original republic of gamers. or R.O.G Supreme OC, or...

But i think, talk to marshall, before taking action..

Thats the way to go..

Yes all stock..

But on ref 7970 pcb..

They clock even higher... at my 40c, for the moment..

I know i said, no meaning running 3d mark now, since they will be chilled soon..

But, you know.. I just had 2.. Ohh, Behave...

you have a thing called board power limit, on these

which if i understand it correct, is some kind of floating core mhz, function..


i am not sure about this function, and really how it works.

I could be very wrong.. Did a fast search on the net about this..

Hi X,

To be honest its my first Geforce in years ... have always been ATI fan. But I thought for my new bench system ... lets try an Nvidia Card this time. Its not letting me down ( ;))

here is the link on the Asus Site
http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/GTX660DC2O2GD5/

Great advantage: ITS Direct CU, so it really stays very cool and almost no fan noise ...

There is a already (released in august I believe), newer improved, version the GTX 660 TI version (more expensive and my purse was really, really empty ...)

Zka17
10-16-2012, 09:00 AM
Henk, that's a very good job! :cool: If you join our team and submit that score, you will get your first gold cup... :) As I see on the HWBOT, right now the max score with a GTX660 in 3DMark Vantage - Performance, is 30214 marks... Although, you may want to re-run that with the PhysX set to the CPU instead of the GPU...

I am looking arround in 3DMarkVantage for the setting you mentioned. But all seems to be on the performance preset. So where do I change the PhysX settings?

Ahh oke I spoke/messaged/with him few hours back about this.

I have rerun the test. Set PhysX to the CPU and ... the results are about the same; see picture here under:

If you are using the latest version of Vantage then physics is disabled as a default. So it does not matter any more, however if you are using a old version then it does. And it is easy to see the difference I promise you as it is not slight.

I see... I got confused by the GPU-Z showing PhysX on... but it seems, for Henk, it shows even after switching to CPU... - maybe, he didn't restarted the GPU-Z?

Also, I found that setting Vsync to off, single monitor (instead of multi) and high performance (instead of adaptive) in Nvidia control panel, gives higher scores... - or it could be just a wrong impression? Could you, please, HiVizMan share your thoughts about these settings?

hehe - benching Vantage is all about finding out what works for your system Zka.

What LOD are you using? http://downloads.guru3d.com/NVIDIA-Inspector-1.94-download-2612.html for the Green Team and pm me for a LOD tool for the Red team.
And yes there will be a difference depending on how many monitors you use, and what kind of monitors you use.
High performance vs eye candy maxed out will also make a huge difference. But not always in the way you think. Often it is one or two steps back from maximum performance. Again that all is system dependant and each bencher builds up a data bank of what worked for them with what hardware.

I see... well, then those worked best for me... :) However, I might play a little bit with that high performance thing... if you say that "Often it is one or two steps back from maximum performance"...

I just built the computer Saturday and installed all software new. Including the latest version of Vantage from futuremark website so it should be the latest version...

So that might mean my score actually is correct !! ;)

10-16-2012, 02:12 PM
Oh yes your score is spot on. If you had enabled physics in the Benchmark you would have had a CPU score close to 70K

I just had all 4 cards tested, separately

One of the cards clock, 40-50 mhz lower on the core, than the rest

Thats not good news, i knew it was a black sheep, a couple of weeks ago..

Thats the reason to why my 3 way score didnt get high enough.. i think

i have done a full remount/swap of the block, and same result..

i guess it will be donated to my kid..

Hi X,
That really s#cks !! There is no way to return it to the store or did you install a non stock cooler?

Its like they say: the strenght of the chain is determined by the weakest Link...

Hope you get a better one next round!

But I got a funny look from the missus yesterday when she asked what I was doing and I answered "calculating Pi"...... so I don't think I'll be going pro any time soon hehe

No, no more cards for me.....at least not until GK110 lol

Bottleneck in vantage>

If crash in Jane Nash.. Clock is 2 high, and prob wont pass New Calico anyway..

New Calico, ending (ships closeup).. going back to planet, if running on air, gpu tend to get hot, and possibly crash

The radeon 69 series, were really picky with that part of the track..

For some reason the Radeon 79 series, handle it better..

The cpu test, is pretty simple, but require some amount of cpu OC stability to pass..

Ps: A high gpu OC, dont always give better score..

Ds: Gpu driver can make a difference, in both score, OC performance, and stability..

Tips> Gpu

Dont be afraid to pull the "clock/voltage" faders..

If running on air, keep an eye on temp (new calico)

try to cool the gpu, as much as possible.. Cooler= More OC headroom = more score

Ram can generally be OC very generously in Vantage.. = more score

Arne Saknussemm
10-22-2012, 10:33 AM
Yep, that sums up my experience so far too. If your GPU canīt handle the complex physics of Jane Nash's chest as she runs towards you; you wonīt pass New Calico. And the very end of New Calico as the ships stream down is the crash point for my Gtx 570 and GTX 680s on all the latest drivers. The second CPU test is the hardest on the CPU too.

47-48k should be any day now...

But gonna spend some time with Lil puppy this weekend, so movies has a higher prio, than benchmarking..

will be adding the 2/3/4 cards next week, looking forward to it..

and i really need to get those other benchmarks working properly..

I'm going to have to get off my butt before I get left in the dust. You guys pushing 5.2 and over, I struggle to get a stable 5.2, I seem to have to push enough voltage that my VRM must over heating because I start down clocking. Help me.

default clock is 800-880 mhz for XT, if i am not wrong..

1345mhz, i think is a decent OC.. much powder left.. ;o)

Something odd happened yesterday, i was pushing the gpu some, and the bios "unlocked" some of the faders, even more. hmm

close to meltdown?

maybe a secret Sapphire tweak.. ;o).. or not.. I tend to go with the later..

With it getting colder here now and work slowing to a crawl for the season should be loads of time to play hopefully. Usually I just drop room temps with cold air assist, but still not quite cool enough for that yet. With winters here in eastern Canada cold air is not normally a problem.

I have had them as high as 1020 core in vantage last winter so loads of room to improve yet. With a bit colder temps I will move chip up to 5.2, will help as well.

Hey dudes I have a question...so I went back and had a look at my GTX570 trying to better SP32M and tried OCing it a bit with precision x ...

Long story short got 950 core and 2100 memory.....looking around the net this seems a very good score on air...which kind of makes me nervous..the temps never went over 70C probably because I loaded it up with PK-1 beforehand....but this doesn't tell me much about VRM.....

Anyone with experience on this...is it safe to bench a bit at those clocks on air?

HiVizMan

OK HiVizMan....thanks! as always!......I'll give it a whirl and see what it can do in vantage...

Funny, all that time I've had it and not OCd it..... turns out it OCs better than my DCuIIs relatively:o

Well not bad...19th so far...:D

When I got out of my bed this morning, I realized that we forgot to turn on the heating last night... temps went down to 17.5C... :( - then I've got an idea! What if I would bench a little bit... :cool:

My last 3D Mark Vantage score was 47313, with the CPU at 5.1GHz and GPU at 1402MHz.... now I pushed them a little bit: CPU at 5200MHz and GPU at 1432MHz:

13535

An 1000 point increase! WOW, I love cold! :cool:

Lol, your are as nuts as me..

Like the cpu score......

speedStep disabled?

Zka17
11-08-2012, 04:15 PM
Yeap, I'm nuts too... but feels good... :D

All power saving features are disabled.

Needed to use a little high voltage on the core, but the max temps of the CPU cores are still below 75C... Thinking about try 5.3GHz, but first will need to work on the memories... they feel a little bit unstable...

Also, I think, there is more in the GPU clock too... it's max temp didn't go over 40C during the benchmark... still have room for increasing the voltages...

What the heck is that image?! How are you defining Vcore as normal or abnormal?

I did try to run different benchmarks with SpeedStep on and off... in 2D benchmarks there is a clear benefit to turn it off, but even the 3D ones (#D Mark 11, Heaven DX9 and DX11, 3D Mark Vantage) are doing better with SpeedStep off...
