CelerasAlright... so first of all if your goal is undervolting then don't bother looking at other people's scores to begin with. Your comparison should be to your stock scores, which you have not posted. Without that information its hard to know what is wrong, if anything. Post that and I will try to help you out with an assessment later (I am going to bed when I hit submit ) Second of all, I think you are a bit confused regarding the intent here. You're correct about the temperatures, but undervolting these cards does not "maintain or reduce" performance. You should not be looking for that. Performance will increase, this is the new age overclocking. My own current undervolt is 0.887V targeting 1950MHZ. When I run 4K Superposition using these settings, my clocks stay close to 1950MHZ the entire time. Occasional drops to 1935MHZ and that is it for the most part. When I run Superposition at the stock GPU settings, voltage will typically be around 0.962V with lots of variation. Temperatures will be higher and my clocks will be all over the place, dropping as low as sub-1800MHZ. The resulting benchmark score will be 750-1000 points less than my undervolt score. That should be your goal when you undervolt. You pick a clock speed you want to target, and then find the minimum voltage to hold it there steady (a little fluctuation is fine especially in heavy benchmarking). This results in better temperatures yes, but also increased performance by not pumping unneeded voltage through the card and causing boost to scale your clocks back as a result.
Gogod2020I have max temp 65c with 0.850 @ 1935Mhzand +500 mem. I have a secondary profile of 0.875 @ 1950Mhz and +200 mem You can check your own tolerances with games they will quit to desktop if the OC you do is problematic. The idea is to keep the temperatures low resulting in less noise better thermals. My memory junction is rarely over 80c and usually max is 82c with average of 76c. Ambient room temp of 23-25c. Idle temps of 25c. Average wattage is at around 250W with max recorded 350W. Using the OC bios with fans always on. Hope this helps.
sstevens5Thanks for that! So when youre playing games your fans are at 100% or are you setting a fan curve? I've locked mine at 65% in PX1 for these benches...maybe I need to adjust. I am getting 375-380W Max Board Power Draw with all of these benches. This was my most recent bench of .912mV @ 2022MHz (have not touched the memory clock):EDIT: the HOT SPOT section on GPUz shows 83C+...is this concerning???
