N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC Overclocking
« on: 02-August-12, 12:12:31 »

Hi,

I just got this new card and am very impressed with it.

Has anyone tried overclocking it yet? If so what are you getting and what values, including voltages, are you using in MSI Afteburner?

Hi,

So far with overclocking it seems like we were scammed when MSI advertised more voltage on these cards. If I turn up the voltage to +100 and the power setting to 114 I have no more overclocking headroom than I did before and the voltage still sits at 1.175 according to a voltmeter I have hooked up. I tried two different meters too.

I don't know if I'm doing it wrong or what, but so far I might as well have just gotten the normal version for cheaper.

First of all N670GTX PE is a Power Edition. Those are equipped with Twin Frozr IV and have a custom high quality board. However Power Editions are not unlocked like Hawk and Lightning. MSI also does not promise that. I can't find an MSI statement saying you can overvolt more than with a standard GTX 670 gpu (due to nvidia's restrictions).
What they say is you can use Triple Overvoltage. Means you can not only adjust the voltage of GPU but memory and PLL. Triple overvoltage can be done with Afterburner 2.2.3 that you can get >>here<<.
Also stop bashing MSI with terms like scam as that won't be tolerated.

The term overvoltage would indicate that you should be able to go higher than the factory setting. I'm asking why this card doesn't do what was indicated it would be able to do.

The statement you are looking for is right on the box itself.

Edit: I'm not trying to bash MSI, I always buy their cards when it comes to graphic cards.

1.175v is overvoltage. No one says it will overvolt more.

Card does what is advertised bottom line. Also another GTX670 with that low quality short reference pcb along with the low quality entry level reference design cooler might also be overvolted to 1.175v but that doesn't mean it will oc like a proper cooled PE with a high quality custom pcb.

So the stock MSI 670 I have sits at 1.175 under full load. The MSI 670 PE sits at 1.175 full load with the voltage and power setting turned all the way up. Am I missing something because that's not any higher.

That's boost overvoltage as you might know standard is 0,988 V. 1.175 is also the most overvoltage any unmodded GTX670 can do. Higher voltages are only (as said before) possible with unlocked cards (like Lightning) or hard modded cards. Since no one promises the PE is unlocked no one promised more overvoltage.
As you can also overvolt memory and PLL (what is not possible with other GTX670) you have more potential for oc.
