guys i have a 'thing' going on with my new msi gtx 670 PE OC!
it is on stock settings gpu 1020 mhz and 1098 on boost,gpu.z can verify that!
BUT when i play games the MSI Afterburner OSD (On Screen Display) shows that the gpu is at 1124-1135 MHz is that normal?
reply plz cause i only got the card 2 days:ohwell:
That's normal. it's why the the Clock and Boost have a + on most specifications in websites my EVGA GTX670 FTW stock clock is 1006MHz, Boot of 1084MHz but when playing games it always runs @ between 1215MHz to 1230MHz and highest i have seen is 1241MHz i haven't tweaked nothing

damn. i dont think i can return it. its been 17 days now that i have purchased it and i dont have the box and the packaging anymore.

they dont accept the return anymore.

how was his experience with the card?

did he get resets and stuff during gaming with the default clocks?
Just to offer a little Advice , if it is Welcome/Required.

A Room mate of Mine a little while back , got a 7970 through one of those sites like you Did. He Leased it I guess, And although it was/Is a Poor option to go with, when He had an issue with Coil Whine, he Contacted them , and they immediately Sent him a new Card, Before he Even Shipped his old one out. They even provided the Box (postage paid). My point is, that You MAY be able to get Support or Return it, because THEY still own the Card, (or the lender). Contact them , at least to be sure , before giving up on that Option. Also , I recommend that you listen to the Previous Replies that recommend that you Just except the Card as it is(a Great Higher end GPU) and be Happy that it's NOT an UNDER performance issue.I mean You ARE trying to Essentially Trying to OC a GPU that ISN'T Your (YET).

I Wish I had a 670.
Just Not @ that Price. It was $330 a little while back on NE. (Not OC Though)

Good Luck Man

Do you jboy think that that anyone likes to read your post. Not a question hence no question mark. Please stick to the normal conversion of writing in forums for grown ups!
