Windows 7: For overclockers ! (by GB)

For overclockers ! (by GB)

Hey buddies i just have some overclocking tests and found a thing that should be shared.

Any gpu stability test software takes the gpu to full load and keep it under full load . until some thing bad happens !

So these software give you the max temperature under full load and depict that either you should go ahead or not.But the main thing is that during gaming the gpu doesn't remain under full load it keeps on going up and down depending on the game details . . .
So the big overclocks that seem to be stable in the burn test fail during gaming !
Because some times the drivers doesn't switch well when the gpu go from full load to low low and vice versa thus giving BSOD or skips in games.

I suggest the overclockers to use heavy Games as testing tools !
No doubt it will require more time but i know it means nothing for the enthusiasts

Use OSD to check temps during gaming ..................

Using unigine heaven and 3dmark11 pretty much works to find if your gpu is stable, but I noticed that using Might & Magic Heroes VI just by running it at the loading screen where you pick campain / custom game worked very good in trying to find if your card was stable, I also heard that anno 2070 test is really good also

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot

I use furmark to test graphics overclocking. These is also OCCT that can put a load on everything.

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I believe a combination of both tests/benchmarks and games is the best way to go.
