Windows 7: Post Your Overclock! [2]

Your vddc is already at 1.175v. That's already 'max safe' for these cards. Pushing past that is diminished returns for a lot of effort (Ie bios modding)

Keep it up mate

Yeah i know mate kepler's are locked @ that bar some Gigabyte cards and modding/ changing bios's is not something i'm interested in. I was just seeing what they could do for the sake of it as there is no point to overclocking them really.

I got a modded bios for my 660ti mate, only unlocked it to 1.2v iirc. I still couldn't overclock the card more than a few mhz. Waste of time so I flashed it back.

I've seen plenty of horror stories regarding flashing gpu bios's but even without those stories i still wouldn't. I'm pretty much guarantee that my cpu bottlenecks my cards anyway so there's n point. It was just nice to see what they could do @ stock voltages They went straight back to stock after benching too
It's mad how far some peeps go to wring that last few Mhz out enit lols

I can definitely understand the hesitation, but now it seems to be far more "safe" now than it would have been several years ago.

Then at the same I see the other reason why you don't want to do it, so I'm making moot points aren't I?

It would be just my luck something would die a death on me lol. I can see why people overclock/ bench though as it's good to see what results you can get with a bit of tweaking. Then it's i wonder if i can beat that and so the slippery slope begins

It's in our nature. And I need to overclock something now.

I'm using a modded bios with my two 7850's. It works like a charm, and there were very little chances of bricking the cards, since they have a dual bios chip. If something went wrong I could have switched to the secondary bios and reflash the primary with the one I'd saved. So if your cards have dual bios, I'd think it is not very risky to try a modded one.

I'm afraid I'm becoming an OC junky too! And since I'm such a noob (basically ignorant) I do things without much regard for involved risks. So far I haven't bricked or fried anything (fingers crossed).
Ignorance is bliss some times, or so my GF tells me!

Cheers,

J

Did you notice much performance difference after the BIOS mod? I've got a 7850 as well so I'm tempted. I tried to OC the card but I never managed to get it stable and it made my display cut to a grey screen so much.
