xblackvalorxOC bios, and barely seeing 60c under load, 65 highest. Plenty of temp room, silicon lottery is definitely the limiting factor, cooling is insane
streetglide420+800 mem, +100 gpu for most things. Anything higher and games crash. I can get it higher on timespy but not firestrike. my particular card does well till 2085MHz, sometimes 2100MHz. It crashes once it hits 2115 almost everytime.

I can get it higher on timespy but not firestrike. my particular card does well till 2085MHz, sometimes 2100MHz. It crashes once it hits 2115 almost everytime. I'm confused. If you add +100 to GPU, doesn't that make it 1855MHz?
NalphOn a side note, I know the CPU feeds the gpu information during GFX benchmarks i believe anyways, Since the cpu seems to always send the gpu some kind of data. but whilst you'd get a better score in benchmarks with a nicer cpu, overclocks wouldn't get any help from a better cpu? I'm running a 6700K and even if i overclock it, that doesn't help the gpu overclock get any higher. I guess again it's lottery. But could a better cpu like a 9900K provide a more stable enviroment for the gpu so it should theoretically go higher in OC?
MuXuSSAlso max push +160/1025 Tyme spy 13791...can’t go upper than 2200hz on air
xblackvalorxSeems like I just got a dud when it comes to OCI can barely keep stable at +110, barely even brush 2100mhzPretty disappointed considering most cards hit that and I only forked over the extra for an ftw 3 for oc and my card can barely overclock in comparison to most

Cards that run above 2100 MHz stable are the lucky few.I can run Time Spy with +145 on core. It was even a little below my scanner result. Was it stable? Hell no. I eventually settled at +115.It was nice getting a high oc and seeing card occasionally boost to 2130 Mhz and all that, but I don't want my games crash halfway.+110 on core is perfectly fine. As long as it's stable, you are good to go.
murlo26So what exactly does the OC bios do differently? I also read mixed feedback that the normal bios has a lower power target and OC has 130%. Some people say the 130% is only XC ultra and other reference board cards though. I have my switch on OC but I am not sure what that does. Is it just higher stock clocks then? I am only doing +100 core and +750 mem right now. Which is giving me 2100ish core, as high as 2115 but usually between 2050 and 2085. I have done very little tweaking though. I was just trying to get Timespy Extreme to run to compare it to my 1080ti numbers. It kept crashing on extreme though. Then I cranked the fans up to 100% manual and it made it through. But with my auto fan control and custom fan curves it would just crash or not load up and fail the test. So I am going to try pushing it further this weekend. My temps gaming are 55-60 typically, low 60's tops. edit: so the FTW3 has a base power of 300watts, is that true? It looks like Jacob said 373w is the max the FTW3 has for power target, which makes sense then as 300x1.24=372 (close I guess). Still curious if that is only on OC bios or what is different there and if someone could confirm the settings. I am asking as I saw some posts saying that the slider/power target should go to 150% but I don't think that is right as mine goes to 124%. Thanks,
