Beta Drivers 304.79. Finally made 10kl!!!!

Nicely done man. Now I've got my new rig sorted out, I'm going to have to have a go at an OC and see how I go.

 

I was looking at your build post and those pics look awesome of your new build. Have fun overclocking!

Decided to have a play around with this tonight since upgrading to 12.6 drivers, got some good results and achieved my goal of 11k.

 

First score is what my performance would be like if I didn't overclock at all. Overclocking adds approx 35% performance boost.

8193 - CPU @ 3.4 - RAM @ 1600 - GPU @ 925/1375

 

8424 - CPU @ 4.6 - RAM @ 2133 - GPU @ 925/1375

10933 - CPU @ 4.6 - RAM @ 2133 - GPU @ 1280/1850

10977 - CPU @ 4.6 - RAM @ 2133 - GPU @ 1280/1900

10995 - CPU @ 4.6 - RAM @ 2133 - GPU @ 1280/1920

 

11041 - p0is0n - i7-2600k @ 4.6 (w) - 2x4GB @ 2133 (10-11-10-27-2T) - HD7970 @ 1285/1925 (w) - Link: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/4005449

 

About 38% overclock on core and exactly 40% overclock on memory. Max temps 39C during this bench session. It also passed at 1290/1930 but my score was a bit lower, sometimes it freezes at that clock speed on the core. Memory seems to have a bit of room left but CBF doing more than a quick muck around tonight. Significant improvement on my old scores though :)

 

Edit: fixed submission up, tried to include all the info necessary.

congrats on breaking 11k and with the cpu at only 4.6ghz!

its insane just how far you can oc the memory on 7970

Cheers Dasa, I was very surprised when my first decent run at 1280/1850 got me so close to 11k already. Not what I was expecting.

Soon as I saw that I knew I had to push it a little more to get 11k. I hope with some tweaking I could get 1300/1950 but something causing it to freeze at these clocks. Usually at end of test 2 or end of test 4 :( Interestingly, haven't seen any artifacting at all, which makes me wish I could increase the voltage further somehow.

 

Unfortunately I still can't boot past 4.6GHz with memory at 2133. I will try a few runs at 5.2GHz but only memory at 1600 and see if the result is any different. I find 4.6 with 2133 usually gets better physics results, but didn't try 5.2GHz last night.

 

I noticed on HWBot a lot of global scores apparently higher than mine with 7950 or other inferior cards, and when i click the screenshot, i beat it in both physics score and graphics score. They don't have 3dmark links though, could it be cheating?

Nice job Poison! Maybe try 1866mhz and raise the BLCK up? But you might need to slightly lower you gpu settings then. I bet you can get another 200points, but really 11k is dam good!

Thanks mate. Unfortunately don't think that will work, my CPU just doesn't like 2133 or 1866 at anything above 4.6, will only do 1600. It also won't boot at even 34x100.5 or 34.101 so that won't work either :( No room to move on BCLK.

Pretty limited with this dud.

 

Edit: Will try and get some other benchies done too like heaven/vantage.

3dmark 11 - Single GPU Nvidia

P4237 DishD - PII 955BE@3.9Ghz(a) -GTX460@890/2050(a)

 

Yep nothing too special but a fair jump over my best score of p3951, updated drivers, squeezed a little more out of the core and memory and a slight boost to the cpu ( cpu has still got more in it but Iv have a crap MB). This is also with stock Volts on the GPU.

Must be the ram, mine wont even let me set it at 2133 anymore. Its strange bc it would let me if I didnt move the blck but now it wont even dropping to x40 and raising to 11-11-11-32 t2. I can set at 1866 and move the blck though with 9-10-9-28 t1. Ive hit my limit for this rig for sure. I can raise the gpu up to 1250mhz on the core if I dont move the blck but gives a lower physics score hence lower 3dmark score. If you could set it to 5.2 with 1600 and OC your card, curious as to what that will get you! 3dmark does seem to like high frequency though.

 

dishd,

 

That is not too bad at all really and a nice boost in score, good job!

Usually you will need to enable XMP for 2133 if that is an option on your board. I am sure its the CPU not the memory, because 2133 is stable at stock, and stable at 4.6GHz. The IMC is on the CPU these days, which means CPU is responsible for memory speed and at 5.0+ it's probably under a lot of stress already. Seems to be a fairly common problem with these boards though.

Ok, maybe that was my mistake since I would set the XMP profile and use 2133, then I would manually go in to adjust the memory configuration to the timings I stated above. This might be why I was able to boot with 2133 before. I might just try to set the XMP and 2133 and see if that works, thanks!

Thanks bro, i hope you can get your ram sorted, im very impressed by your scores so far, keep at mate :)

Few other results to add.

 

Vantage:

39110 - p0is0n - i7-2600k @ 4.6 (w) - 2x4GB @ 2133 (10-11-10-27-2T) - HD7970 @ 1285/1925 (w) - Link: http://3dmark.com/3dmv/4221824

Nothing special but only ran it once for a number

 

Heaven:

2010 - p0is0n - i7-2600k @ 4.6 (w) - 2x4GB @ 2133 (10-11-10-27-2T) - HD7970 @ 1285/1925 (w) - Link: http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa420/...ts/b037a185.png

Again nothing special. just ran it the once

 

06 froze twice at 1285/1925 so CBF tweaking it right now.

^^ nice one poision, geez those 7970's are a fine bit of kit, if i didn't have such a love of Nvidia (and have such a bad experence with ATI) i wouldnt mind getting one of those beasts.

Cheers mate, I got mine back in January when there was no other option, if I was buying now I'd probably grab a gtx680.. seen plenty of 13k+ 3d mark scores with those :(

Man Poison your Vantage score rapes mine by 5k. I was trying to beat your Heaven score since I was so close, they you had to run it again, dam it!

haha sorry dude :) you can check my compare links to see the individual cpu/video score as I think my 2600k helps a little in some of these, for example in 3dmark11 my physics score is about 1800 more probably due to cpu and slightly faster memory, the video score itself isn't too far apart. same with vantage, the cpu score is much wider gap than the video score.

cant say i expected the 7970 to top gtx480 sli let alone so easily but here it is 80fps crysis

 

80FPS Dasa - i7 2600K@4.8GHz(w) - 7970DC2T@1200/1775(w)

gave vantage a run had to turn the clocks down a fair bit vs other benchmarks though to get it to complete so my score is a fair way short of p0is0n and his sexy gpu

P38100 Dasa - i7 2600K@4.9GHz(w) - 7970DC2T@1200/1700(w)

 

 

been playing with under\overclocking the 7970

 

clocks that seem stable after looping heaven for a while

925mhz-gpu 1400mhz-mem 1012mv-set 970mv-software 998mv-multimeter (reported power use at the wall while looping heaven~170w) (new power meter 207-233w)

1150mhz-gpu 1500mhz-mem 1112mv-set 1070mv-software 1089mv-multimeter (reported power use at the wall while looping heaven~240w)(new power meter 274w max)

 

increasing gpu v seems to make the mem more stable at higher speeds as i received some nasty gray lines in heaven with the mem at 1575mhz 1112mv but it can run much higher with extra juice

default v for most 7970 is 1175mv and ghz edition is ~1218mv but this gpu just doesnt scale well with the extra it cant even reach 1200mhz completely stable regardless of v even with the gpu load temp under 30c

so its a great card for a quiet air oc but thats not really what i purchased it for although on the up side it also lowers my power use a bit

Dasa looks like your cpu score is really high compared to mine in Vantage:

 

P41467 - Gamble - i5 @ 4.8ghz - SLI GTX 670 Async (1277c1/1217c2 and 7100m)

 

3dmark11:

 

P15368 - Gamble - i5 @ 4.95ghz - SLI GTX 670 Async (1282c1/1217c2 and 7150m)

 

Vantage is much more picky when it comes to high clocks. Going to give Crysis a run in a bit.

yest ht can add ~25% performance gain in some benchmarks shame it doesnt work so good in games

I could probably get some more out of the below but would need to run it async.

 

Crysis:

 

81.68FPS - Gamble - i5 @ 4.8ghz - SLI GTX 670 (1215c/7100m)

 

Just for the fun of it:

 

16x:

81.03FPS

16xQ:

78.32FPS - Gamble - i5 @ 4.8ghz - SLI GTX 670 (1200c/7100m)

 

Heaven 2.5:

 

3359 - Gamble - i5 @ 4.8ghz - SLI GTX 670 (1210c/7100m)

 

Heaven 3.0:

 

3678 - Gamble - i5 @ 4.8ghz - SLI GTX 670 (1200c/7100m)

Got a new PB for 3D mark 11 just testing something over the weekend, managed to squeeze out a few more points.

 

Posted Image

 

P11201 - p0is0n - i7 2600k @ 5088 - 2x4GB @ 1600 - HD7970 @ 1290/1925

 

Seems like bumping the CPU up from 4.6 to 5.1 helps my physics score significantly, even though the RAM is running 533MHz slower.

Didn't try any of the other benchmarks for now.

 

From my observations today, it seems safe to conclude 1x 7970 ~= 2x 6970? Decent improvement over the last generation.

Nice score man, whats heaven give you with the cpu up that high?

probably an extra 5 points same with stalker

crysis will love it though
