i had written a long rave about tweaking the video settings, but i fucked up a keystroke and deleted it all... i hate that
long story short, i thought the elpida vram was crap in my giga gtx 760 (and most other situations), until i bumped my main ram's vdimm to help the ares handle the high clocks i demanded : 2133 with latencies at 10-12-12-31 - it's meant to do 2400 at 11-13-13-31, but rated to do it with 1.65v, and my marginally less speed (the highest the sandy is capable of comfortably doing) was at stock 1.5v, which i gently nudged to 1.54, the smallest increment the bios would allow
previously gaming would crash the driver, but not bluescreen ... but occasionally black screen, and i thought the vram was the culprit, as keeping it almost stock was much less inclined to do so; rig specs below, and the impetus to overclock was the upgrade to u2515h from the previous u2410 which was pretty schmick at stock for the 760, but the move from 1920x1200 to 1440p is a major increase in required grunt
i5-2500k 4.2ghz @1.225v / megahalems / gigabyte z77-d3h / samsung 850 evo msata 250 / 2x8gb G.Skill ares @ 2133 / asus xonar d2 + klipsch promedia ultra 2.0 + ath ad700 / Lian Li PC-A17B & corsair hx750i & noctua fans / gigabyte gtx760 oc windforce / dell u2515h
wow, did i underestimate the elpida... it's clocking like samsung despite gpuz telling me it is eplida
check out them numbers : https://www.techpowe...z/details/n8xmv
the gpu is pretty much maxed, but the vram hasn't had any issue despite jumping ion increments of 50 - 100 to here, and i sorta just stopped because i doubt more bandwidth will actually add benefit at this stupidly big number
i'm impressed... all this is at stock volts for the card, as i haven't managed to understand the possibility of using the guru software to add 8% volts "safely" to the card
feel free to admire my e-peen; is there any great joy to be had in making vram even faster ? i know more on the core is good, but currently it boosts in gaming to measure just shy of 1400 ! and it does 1401 according to ungine heaven benchmark... beast !!
