Thanks for the club, it was needed and I'm sure we'll get a lot of peeps here. These cards will be popular :)

Here's my baby :) (edit: CPU cooler fan is dusted now :D)
http://img.techpowerup.org/100816/giga_460_3.jpg

And this is a quick OC Vantage run
http://img.techpowerup.org/100817/GTX460_Vantage2.jpg

I've since sinked the whole card with some custom heatsinks, because of height restrictions. Will be posting a lot more pictures of that project :)
Here you go: (edit: hmm, lower GPU score and FPS with higher clock, 5MHz more memory might be too high?)
http://img.techpowerup.org/100820/GTX460_Vantage_nophysx.jpg

Also did a 06 run earlier:
http://img.techpowerup.org/100820/GTX460_062.jpg

And nice core/shader you both got going on, I'm still finding this cards limit (10MHz more on that Vantage run :p).
How can you get a 50642 CPU score the first run and only a 16307 CPU score the second run?
I got a 40872 CPU score on my i7 860@3.8 GHz HT Off but you don't even have HT so...

My Vantage run. GTX 460@850/1700/4000

*EDIT*

i tested and i hit 900/2000/1800mhz @ 1.125v and max load temp was 78°C in Heaven Benchmark v2.1 ^^

Not trying to be unfriendly but GPU-Z shows 800 MHz Core, you did a quick overclock and didn't wait long enough for GPU-Z to react? I know such things can happen! :cry:

I got GSOD twice while playing BC2 so i went back to the 259.
I didn't get BSOD with my 260.52 on BFBC2, but haven't played so much. :(

oh sry about that, i will say around 1.000~1.200v doesn't hurt as long as ur card is being properly cooled down there shouldn't be any problem.


Flak what games, and what does GPU-Z read ur card to?


Maybe my problem is actually this low gpu usage issue I've started reading about and I'm seeing it as the gpu dropping down to desktop clock? I'm grabbing the 260.52 beta to see if they fix the problem for me.


Both of the problems I described happen with pretty much any game I launch from Steam.

I think the only game I am playing right now that isn't through steam is BC2.
BC2 it does the stuttering thing, where ever so often performance tanks and when I check the screen to my left I see the card has kicked down to desktop speeds. Then after a couple seconds it goes back to 3d speed.

(yeah u got a shot of my desktop calendar with anime's on >.>)


i am planing about selling this card and buy MSI GTX460 HAWK to see if it can go higher and hopefully 1GHZ on the core but i am not quiet sure if that will be the right choose since this card is working like Hell ^^;

and yes i completed "Mafia 2 - Jimmy's Vendetta" with these setting no problem in 1080p ^^

ino with EVGA, Asus and MSI u should be able to adjust the voltage when u oc i am not that sure with Gigabyte and Palit even my own Gainward have the same design as some of the Palit GTX460 cards :laugh:

i haven't actually not seen any GTX460 cards that down underclock when they ain't used, my own card down clock aswell, even when it's overclocked :eek:

BC2 it does the stuttering thing, where ever so often performance tanks and when I check the screen to my left I see the card has kicked down to desktop speeds. Then after a couple seconds it goes back to 3d speed.
I get a solid 50-60 FPS in BFBC2 everything maxed out@1920x1080 with my 260.52 Beta drivers, GPU load @99% and no BSOD yet, but haven't played so much. BTW so many users here have got so many "Thanked" can you thank me for this post so I at least have one? :D

Please note that the HAWK is 238 mm long compared to the 201 mm GTX460 reference cards or your even shorter Gainward card. I can not fit a 238 mm card in my case, if I don't remove my 120 mm cooling fan for my hard drives but I prefer keeping it, so make sure to measure before purchasing the HAWK!
I am not doubting you, I know GPU-Z takes time to react sometimes, and if you take a snapshot faster than it reacts the snapshot will be faulty...and I don't mind anime! ;)

i should have enought space in my Cooler-Master CM690II Advanced i had a Asus Radeon EAH5770 1GB CuCore where i had mounted a Arctic-Cooling Accelero TwinTurbo Pro on that was long so there should be enough :p

hi guys i plan on pick up a gtx460 with the week is it worth it to pay the extra for the 1gb model, cause later on i am looking to grab another to sli
almost forgot and what make, i am limited to what i can pick from either Evga reference, Asus reference, gigabyte dual fan, or palit dual fan design and msi cyclone
Well worth the extra cash for the 1Gb, especially if your going to be gaming at max resolution on your monitor/s ;)

and as for what card I'd say the MSI Cyclone... mainly because I have one myself and I have no fault to pick with it, ... to be honest I think I may have one of the better chips, but that's kinda sad as I'll never be willing to push it to it's limit's. but a great card none the less! I think to what brand you choose is going to be down to personal preference in the end. unless your easily persuaded then who knows :\

actually the msi cyclone was new arrival with my local computer shop, Ive heard nothing but good things with it even though it cost $10 dollars more so if u say it overclocks better and cools better then i might go with it

Well as I said, I think I have one of the better cards, I can get quite high clock's on stock volt's 835/1000. but even so these are great card's and as you said you've heard nothing but good thing's about them, if you do plan to overclock the voltage at all then it would be a good idea to get some heatsinks for that area, the GDDR5 has been around awhile now and has also been pointed out to me that this doesn't need cooling as much, but still if your going to buy some sinks for your vreg's then you may aswel get some for the RAM :D

I really don't want to swing your thoughts one way or the other though, read some review's etc, listen to people's throughts, and make your mind up based on everything you've seen/heard :D

the Cyclone cooler is a oki cooler some hate it bcs the card don't support memory cooling sinks with the Cyclone cooler, but read W1zzard's test of the Cyclone card.

What problems with Steam games? I have no problem with my Steam games, but I only have four Steam games installed.

I just picked up an eVGA GTX 460 768mb card cheap. Going to throw it in my HTPC and use it for a bit of gaming. I doubt my PSU will let me overclock it too much. :)

It's a Thermaltake TR2 450w. It could run a stock 5850 allright, but it couldn't give any more power with a modest overclock. I have no need to overclock it, I just got it at a good price and is more than I need. You would definitely like the GTX 460 over your 8800GT.
