Can someone help me with how to use the X1 OC tool. After I run scan do I update the clock with the new score and then hit apply or do I hit apply after the scan then save the result to a save slot?

Also when I want to apply more power to the card do I input the new power range I want then hit apply, then run OC scan function? Or do I just change the power target then run the OC scanner and the OC scanner will notice the increased power range when I hit scan without applying the new power range? Any help would be much appreciated since their is really no guide book for this software

    I am curious about this as well. I frankly have no idea whatsoever.

    I would try to run the scanner, then after its is done ---> save the results to a profile number

    The API is based on Nvidia Scanner
    It is a voltage & frequency curve tuner - take about 20 min to run


     
    Web search found several youtube posts, I've not reviewed any .... so cant recommend a specific one
     
    Found  this


     
     
     
    I set my X1 manually ... ver 0.2.9.0

    Thank You for Your Support

    Why is my 2080Ti FTW3 Ultra now reading it as a regular eVga 2080Ti now with the beta version of Precision XI? Never mind.

    I ran the scan:
    Highest boost I got was like 2115.
    Got a Pass with score of around 116 I think.
     
    I did not try to save to anything, should I have? Would that make any difference on how it does in a game?

    +153 would be what you input into the core clock.

    Thanks. Is it the 1650 boost clock + 153? I have seen this card at 1985 already in a gaming session. That’s what’s confusing to me. Appreciate your help.

    The +153 is added onto whatever your card actually boosts to at stock.

    this was my best graphics score with the precision x1 when i first clocked it, I game with lower clocks however.
    i78086k @ 5.0 all 6 cores -
    2080 ti ftw3 ultra 1225 mem 100 core 124% pwr 88 Temp 0 voltage 100%fans 
    GRAPHICS SCORE for TIMESPY EXTREME = 7498 so... like 7500 which is way higher than the dude above here that had a 7277 or something.
    When I play video games I clock it like such:
    1000 mem 80 core 124% pwr 88 Temp 0 voltage Auto%fans 
    ________________
    I lower the clock because for Firestrike Extreme the core has to be tuned down to 74, so I just leave it @80 for games. Haven't had a problem yet. I also noticed that you can get higher scores if you open the Tower case. Oh and if you have extra fans blowing into the factory fans it clocks a little higher too, but I never got it to boost over 100core and stable..always power limited, according to the GPU-Z utility which indicates the Performance Capacity Limiting Factors.

    PX1 is suppose to replace XOC, so I would hope so. You'll have to poke around in the software to see for yourself.

    Thank You. I guess I will start testing that tomorrow, I don't want to ruin my gaming tonight, spending time on software.

    Re: How to use Precision X1 software 2019/01/30 15:33:40 (permalink)
    I finally figured it out too. But this program has no documentation, and the UI isn't intuitive.
     
    Frankly, I've avoided EVGA tools and used MSI Afterburner because you can actually understand what's going on with their layout and tooltips.
     
    Here's another confusing situation:
     
    Your frequency and voltage curve won't load when you load your profile unless the UI is on the VF Curve Tuner page - a page that isn't he default when you load the program.

    I'll have to try that when I get home.  I did the Curve Tuner and it didn't seem to do anything after I applied the +116 it suggested.

    Re: How to use Precision X1 software 2019/02/20 10:57:27 (permalink)
    Well after spending about an hour on the phone combined with 2 different people at EVGA support I was left with the impression that they really didn't KNOW the most recent X1 Precision software. One guy put me on hold for like 10min and quickly try to learn how the software works.
     
    I am still unclear if the changes I made were taking effect after running the VF Tuner scan that after it completes only give me a score (+53) in my case. 
    This software has NO instructions and after making changes REALLY does not give you any response in terms of "your changes have been saved" or ANY other type of visual confirmation. Watching an "overview" video of the X1 software by Joseph w/ EVGA he seemed to spend more time going over how to change the LEDs than actually explaining how to COMPLETE changes to the software. 
     
    I certainly would love to speak to the actual author of the X1 software or somebody who truly KNOWS how it works to take full advantage of my RMAed RTX 2070 XC ULTRA

    Finally I run into a thread that partially explains how to use this software.  Unfortunately it's been a while since the last update.

    Re: How to use Precision X1 software 2019/04/15 22:13:40 (permalink)
    I uninstalled this piece of crap after two days of trying to get it to do a Scan. Two or three minutes after I hit the Scan button a small window pops up with a message that means nothing to me, no explanation anywhere about what it means, then I get a fail in the pass or fail finally. I have a GTX 1080 Ti water cooled. When I tried to do an overclock manually my system crashed so I obviously don't know how to do it.

    This post is really good but I have another issue when I tried to use Precision X1 software it shows an error 
    so I really want a solution on how to use it properly without facing an error.

    What is the error that you are getting? Can you post a screenshot of this error?

    If every time that we scan and the score that we get is what we have to put on the core clock... doesn't that kinda ruin the point of having a VF curve? Reason why I can't use this software is because there is no clear documentation of what we have to do. At least with MSI Afterburner after you scan it, you just save it and you're done. It'll load every time the program launches.

    X1 GPU OC Basics

    Your PSU Needs to be up to the task, crank your Case fans to 100% for best possible cooling

    Your MB, CPU, RAM -- Need to be Rock solid / stable


    1) Slide your Temp & Power targets Full right & set your fans at 100%

    2) Small adjustment to your GPU MHz  - maybe 20 MHz at a time & test for stability

    - run benchmark software to load the card to manually test for better GPU OC

    Why 20 MHz -- that is 1 Step for the 20 series cards
     
    3) From Max OC --> I reduce by 10% for best day to day stability
     
    Stability from program to program Can Be Different:  whether Games or Benchmarks you can expect different Stable OC settings, especially if your at the edge of stability

    -------------------------------------------------------------
     
    4) You must Save to a Profile Number - click on any 0-9
     
    5) Then Apply Button & then Save Button
     
    6) for Auto load of Last Open Profile there are a couple of items to check mark to make it work - launch on Reboot & Load previously saved Profile#
     
    You need to select - Both of these:
         1) "Start on with OS"
         2) "Apply previous settings on load"
     
    WARNING:  when trying to Find your best OC, Do Not select the "apply previous settings on load" --> if its an unstable setting you do not want these to load and crash your Rig on restart ---- right
     
    7) then click:  Apply & then Save  (these are needed to save changes to a profile, )
