I have a old screen shot some were of mine hitting over 900 but I will have to find it.
Yeah but I think it was the bios flash that helped. Noticed my own non SE cards clocked better after a bios flash.
What tool do you use to flash a nvidia?
NVFlash. If you need it PM me.
That's what I read before somewhere so I didn't even try to max my VRAM - just bumped it from 1800 Mhz to 2000 Mhz and left it at that. Do you think it would even be worth it to see what its maximum is (vs. the 2000 Mhz I currently have it at)? Actually, I think my chips are only rated at 2000 so it probably wouldn't go much higher (although I do have heatsinks on them).
Just going to guess and on most 460 768 cards will be 2100. 1GB cards, close to 2200. Still trying to find suitable coolers for my Max 3 + SLI config. So far only one is the Thermalright Spitfire.
Thanks, I'll give it a try!
Setsugen 2 : http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products/vga-cooler/setsugen-2.html
Musashi is EOL although some shops still have the cooler.
Two slot coolers - nice! Meh, just looked at a review of the Setsugen 2 - doesn't seem to be very effective.
May i join?
Meh. Ill just not worry about the coolers.
ofc catnipkiller, what voltage is that on? stock?
1.025v core on msi afterburn.
added catnipkiller ^^
Found my screenshot JR!!
So I installed the Arctic Accelero XTREME Plus on my GTX 460.
Absolute beast of a cooler. One problem, somehow the fans won't spin when connected directly on the 3pin header of my 460.
I have to manually run it at 7v with an adapter. Which leads to another problem: VRM overheating when using Furmark.
GPU only reaches 56 degrees max, but after 3-4minutes the VRM temps get too high and I get a black screen. I believe if I could run the fans at 100% then the VRM overheating would be gone.
It runs 3Dmark and games perfectly fine though. I tested 900MHZ @ 1.0875v today and it ran 3Dmark 11 without any problems.
It appears to perform similair to HD 6870 according to this chart:
3DMark11 (i7 3960X)
That's very odd. I had experience with two other "Xtreme" three fan coolers from them (one on an 8800 GTX and the other on a GTX 260) and they both worked fine when plugged directly into the video card's fan plugin. Arctic Cooling's customer service is non existent so there's no one you can contact. They just push it off on the retailers.
well, I bought it from another guy who listed it as ''new'',but apparently the cooler was used.
I'm not sure why he sold the cooler, 4pin works fine, 3 pin doesn't.
Still happy with my card
Here is my GTX460 1GB, i ve had it since August 2010, just started using moded BIOS's since 2 months now, the current settings are stable and without voltage tweak i think I'll stick to that since i don't want a voltage tweak yet, this card is heading to may hall of fame as the first card i have had that overclocks that much, without voltage tweaks or any other more tech tweaks, too bud I'll have to replace it at some point hence the hall of fame for this card.
Thanks very much for the BIOS tweaks @JrRacinFan
To anyone interested in how i got this settings and how it all started about the BIOS mods check here http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=162792
Nice, you can go further though!
What do you mean, can i go past 900Mhz Core Clock, and 1050 Mhz Memory Clock? i know that it can do 905 Core Clock & 1065 Memory Clock, so do you mean i can do past those with out voltage tweak? coz i do not want to tweak voltage yet. i tried 925 Core Clock was freezing while gaming so i guess with that voltage tweak is required.
If you have suggestion please state, the clocks, NOTE no voltage tweak just yet that means cant do 925 Core Clock.
I have not been added yet, i know I'm kind of late to the party, I'm here now and I've had the card since 2010 just never saw the thread considering i joined TPU September 2010
