Funny thing happened on the..........

I went to 3DGuru to pick up an OC program for my video card. I read that the EVGA Precesion will work on most nvidia cards. I concider this to be the best OC program for most people ( and I already had it!) My card has 1800+ shaders so I bumped it up to 2k and fan to 100%. Vanage died on it's ear so I aborted and cut back the shaders to 1900. #DMark Vantage did the same. I put Precision back to stock except for the fan speed and ran it agian-all the way through this time. The Score? P612-I'll get revatuner in the nex day or so.

Arrow

Just a guess, but the way it sounds is a combo of 2 things happening.

1. Driver conflicts with OLD drivers that are left behind in the system's driver cabs.
(Use DriverCleaner.Net to fix this)

2. Clocks being set too high & not stable.
(Could be any single one of them or all of them. Core/Shader/RAM)

There's a reason for running the shaders & core clocks unlinked because they can run at different speeds.
If you don't know what the fastest stable speeds are, then keep them linked & just go off the GPU core clock speeds.
OCing your graphics card is the same as CPU overclocking in that if it's not stable I will crash with errors, so you need to know
what these "Max" speeds are before setting them.
There's lots of tutorials on this & worth the time to read them so you know how to do this correctly.

I'm not sure if ATiTool is compatible with the new Nvidia cards or not for determining what your Max clocks are,
but that is what I used to find my Max clocks on my Nvidia 8800GTS card.
But you can still do it the old fashion manual way...takes more time but still works.

It had to be driver leftovers. As I said I upped the shaders-that is all. and the score of 612 was stock. I assumed at that point Precision just wasn't going to work. Now that I know that DriveSweeper doesn't do it's job, I'm going to try Precision again. Rivatuner may be fine for some but for me most of it is a waist of time. It's sort of like getting a Beemer stretch limmo just to go through the drive thru at Burger King.
