HAHA! My GTX 560Ti ships today
Yeah yeah yeah
GTX 560 TI vs GTX 460 SLI?
More than likely the SLI will win but we can do some tests. I will download vantage
I'm bottlenecked. It will be close dude. Let me know when you get it. Woot
Which program can I use to test my GPU overclock? Furmark? But it doesn't really stress the memory...
I use OCCT. If it can pass that without errors I know its fine for my gaming.
What settings do you use in OCCT and how long do you run it?
I use furmark for about 5 minutes. No need to overly stress your card using these applications as it can do harm to them.
Well I have tested my card 30 mins furmark stable but got artefacts in BF3 (or maybe that was a BF3 glitch?)
Forgot to update my entry a long time ago. Now running 2x1gb Gigabytes firstname.lastname@example.org. Can't remember the memory speed since I'm away now.
Still takes anything I throw at it.
Seems to run 3DMark 11 fine
860/1125 1.05v 3D Performance, 2D and low 3D performance 0.825v
edit- but not all games, lowered ram to 1090 and runs all games no problem.
Just bought the Accelero XTREME Plus for 27 euros for my GTX 460
beast cooler if you ask me, going to OC my gtx460 to 900mhz with the new cooler.
I put an AC Accelero Twin Turbo II on mine. Its more than enough
Sounds like you got a very good price for Xtreme though. Even with the Twin Turbo II I can't go higher than 875 Mhz with my PNY GTX 460. It never gets hotter than 56C with the fan on auto and I've adjust the voltage to various levels. It just refuses to go any higher than that. Kind of disappointing, but it still games pretty well.
I just noticed your question about OCCT. I think about ten to fifteen minutes.
which voltages do you use? I think mine would run 900MHz stable @ 1.10v of maybe 1.11v but I'm not sure. Can't test it with stock cooler.
1.062. I tried it at the maximum Afterburner would allow and it still would have artifacts and corruption. I suppose I could try it higher, but I doubt even then I could go much above 875 Mhz and the performance difference in games would be minor. Some cards just OC better than others and PNY apparently is on the lower end of the scale. Prior to installing the Twin Turbo I couldn't go higher than 815 Mhz (it had a reference cooler).
How many slots does the Twin Turbo II take up? Are they a direct fit on reference 460's?
I get the same thing with my 560TI, I can OC and pass about 10-15 minutes on kombuster/furmark wide open but will only play BF3 for like 2 minutes before hard lock. At stock clocks it plays no problems
Two and a slight overhang into the third, so for all intents and purposes its three. Yeah, it was a direct fit. The installation only took about 15 minutes - the hardest part and longest wait was applying the heatsinks and waiting for the thermal glue to cure (which is removable should you need to take them off). I'm not super handy with fiddly things like this and even I got it installed with no drama.
Crap. No any other coolers that would do 2 slots max?
Arctic Twin Turbo, Zalman 3000
Which version 3000?
Zalman 3000 is a triple slot.
Guess I'm looking at either swapping out my cards or going watercooling. Twin turbo 1 looks to be 3 slot also.
I have a gtx 460 SE and was looking into over clocking it a bit for bf3. What kind of clock should i be getting with this card and what would yo say a max safe gamming temp would be?
I will upload gpuz shot when i get home.
900 core is slim and rare on the SE parts, leave mem clock alone it barely nets any performance gain ALTHOUGH with BF3 and it being vram biased it MAY help. So I would say max 865core max volts 1.14v max temps 75C.
