I have a MSI N670GTX-PM2D2GD5/OC, since it is a reference card would I be able to use any of the EVGA bios? I have a Dell XPS i have been wanting to use it in.

This firmware doesn't cure the instability I had since Day 1 with my 670SC and rFactor and high AA levels.  That's not necessarily EVGA/Nvidia's fault... it coudl be something with rFactor.

Re:EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Firmware Update v80.04.31 2012/08/11 12:10:00 (permalink)
not cool. my GPU core clock got stuck at 914MHz and didn't want to boost at all under load (50% TDP max). re-installed both nvidia driver (304.79 beta) and precision X (it lost the GPU temp sensor), now all back to normal.
 
however now as everything clocks normal I see some EXTREME POWER THROTTLING under load (when OCed). in deed the TDP stays at max 122.7% (near ideal), but I loose lots of MHz for that!!!!
 
here is a short run of Scanner X at my GPU OC, look how deeply it power throttles under load (dropping from 1242MHz core down to 1138MHz!!!! over 100MHz drop!!!!)

no, I no longer am fond of it. what's the point in OC'ing it if the GPU core drops the speed to its own liking (based on power draw).

I don't ever see this thermal throttling you all are talking about, my cards never break 67C and even when I purposely lowered the fan speed to allow it to reach 74-76C no downclock happened....
I just updated this bios and if you have sli you only have to install it once it attaches to all cards automatically.
My benchmarks scores stayed the same, however, my max power usage has dropped 10% and my maximum and minimum fps also drooped.....How about a link to the prior bios, I don't think they improved anything in this flash..........

The power throttling is application dependent so it will only do it in certain things, my 670SC 4GB doesn't do it during BF3, but from what I have heard it will in 3dmark11 (haven't tested this myself yet). Your card should throttle down for sure at 70C though, that is the first thermal throttle point on these Keppler cards. I don't think anyone is talking about thermal throttling here, just the power throttling. I haven't updated my card either, I haven't had any real big problems with it so I am leaving it be.

Nope my cards never have down clocked during 3dmark11 even when I purposely lowered the fan setting and let the card get well into the 76C temps. I have onscreen display and LCD keyboard display, they never downclock from 1300mhz and 1260mhz ever.
This may be just a issue with the 670 reference and SC models.
The FTW's are actually 680's with one SMX unit disabled.

AFAIK all the 600 series has a thermal throttle point of 70C too, and yes I know the 670FTW is on a 680 pcb. I am not saying I don't believe your card is not throttling down at 70C, but it is supposed too.

The FTW are ACTUALLY 680's with a defective SMX unit, they use the same pcb/heatsink/fan.
The reference/SC use garbage components and are on a much smaller pcb/cheap fan/cheap heatsink. Hence why they reach 80C when OC'ed. The FTW's never surpase 67/68C.

AGAIN ALL 670 gpus are just 680 gpus with a unit disabled. the 670 FTW just uses the reference 680 pcb and cooler. and BS on the 670 FTW not going above 68 C cause they most certainly do even at stock if the fan is left on auto.

Hmmm, i guess im lucky to not even come close to that 70 mark when im OC'ed. I MIGHT get it to 61, and that's it.

My 670SC 4GB doesn't go over 67C overclocked, and that is when I don't run my AC (I do use a custom fan profile), and I wouldn't call them garbage. A lot of people say they are loud too, not the case for me. My 560SC 2GB is way louder. Back on topic though.... anyone else having issues with this new firmware?

61 C? BS. you people either have fan profiles or you are full of crap claiming to never go over 70 C for full load on an oced gtx670.

Mine doesn't stay as low as 61C, but I haven't had it hit 70C yet. My room is usually pretty cool, I try to keep it at or under 23C. What temps does your FTW usually run at?

I never see above 67C on either of my 670 ftw's and I have pretty nasty OC's going on both. My fan curve is default and I just have it on auto. My fans never hit 70% so I never hear them. If your cards are getting hotter than that, your cards are bad or your case cooling solution is terrible.
Here's the official review explaining the many differences between reference 670's/SC 's/ and FTW's cards.  -http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/27432-evga-gtx-670-ftw-reviewed/27432-evga-gtx-670-ftw-reviewed?start=7
"EVGA did a great job taking the GTX 680’s design for its GTX 670 FTW graphics card. The fan is silent in idle mode but even when it’s under full load you won’t hear it until you’re really close to the computer. Bear in mind that the GPU was overclocked from 915MHz to 1006MHz and that the cooler is still silent. In fact, this is the best GTX 670 cooling solution we’ve tested so far."

Yes, i use a fan curve. Its not default of course.

you have to be freaking kidding me. there was nothing wrong with my card as for as temps go and I have excellent case air flow. all it uses is the reference 680 cooler which most certainly exceeds 70 C in every review out there. did you even look at your own link because even at stock clocks it was hitting 77 C? and the 680 cooler is far from the best cooling solution. wow some of you guys really just see what you want to see I guess...lol.

Not sure what to tell ya my clocks are 1300mhz which is a considered a huge OC. Yet to see above 67C even after 6-8 hours of gaming. What case do you have and what kind of fans are you using? Maybe you need to clean your case?

I never see above 67C on either of my 670 ftw's and I have pretty nasty OC's going on both. My fan curve is default and I just have it on auto. My fans never hit 70% so I never hear them. If your cards are getting hotter than that, your cards are bad or your case cooling solution is terrible.
Here's the official review explaining the many differences between reference 670's/SC 's/ and FTW's cards.  -http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/27432-evga-gtx-670-ftw-reviewed/27432-evga-gtx-670-ftw-reviewed?start=7
"EVGA did a great job taking the GTX 680’s design for its GTX 670 FTW graphics card. The fan is silent in idle mode but even when it’s under full load you won’t hear it until you’re really close to the computer. Bear in mind that the GPU was overclocked from 915MHz to 1006MHz and that the cooler is still silent. In fact, this is the best GTX 670 cooling solution we’ve tested so far."

-Notice in quite a few of the benchmarks the EVGA 670 FTW pounds reference 680's-

you have to be freaking kidding me. there was nothing wrong with my card as for as temps go and I have excellent case air flow. all it uses is the reference 680 cooler which most certainly exceeds 70 C in every review out there. did you even look at your own link because even at stock clocks it was hitting 77 C? and the 680 cooler is far from the best cooling solution. wow some of you guys really just see what you want to see I guess...lol. 


SeanEJohan

Not sure what to tell ya my clocks are 1300mhz which is a considered a huge OC. Yet to see above 67C even after 6-8 hours of gaming. What case do you have and what kind of fans are you using? Maybe you need to clean your case?
In fact, this is the best GTX 670 cooling solution we’ve tested so far."  Did you miss that?

lol, please stop acting like I am a noob. my case is in my sig and its just fine.  you were the one that linked to the review and it showed 77 C on stock clocks so it backs up what I said. you either have a fan profile or you are not checking the temps during FULL load. its just that simple. 
 
and all they said was that it was the best cooling solution they had tested "so far".  any non reference cooler would cool much better and quieter. really all you did was make yourself look silly by linking to the review that actually backs up what I told you.

Just about everyone in this forums agrees the cards should not get above 67C...I'd say you have something going on with your set up...

your own damn link shows 77 C for stock clocks. you are NOT running FULL load if you are only in the 60s and that is a FACT.

Could be your case considering it comes with only 2 120mm fans that run at 1200rpm...I didn't even know they made fans that slow

1 x 120 mm front fan, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA

Not sure why it went off track so badly. The thread is about new firmware for the Evga GTX 670. It fixed two things:
 
  • Improved stability
  • Improved compatibility with DELL XPS 8300 systems    
     
      The arguing about temps, and fans needs to stop now.

    So after I posted, a couple members posted  Personal Attacks, and their posts were deleted. Let's do this another way then. Looks like some people may not have understood what I was trying to say above.
     
    Next "Personal Attack", or any other TOS violation that occurs in this thread will most likely get a warning. I hope everyone understands me now.
     
                                                               *General Warning*
     

    EDIT: After this was posted, another Personal Attack was posted. The post was deleted, and a warning was sent. (It's not a good idea to continue TOS violations after a "General Warning" has been issued)

    In battlefield 3 i randomly got 19 fps.... after i updated the bios, i think am also getting less FPS.. these cards should only perform 5-10 fps less than a GTX 680, thats why i bought it. Any tips or reason why my FPS is fluctuating?
