Default m gtx 280 pushed as far as it will go

753 was max on the core i could get with voltage upped just a bit (1.213), higher voltage only ment higher temps after that.



pretty close to guru's numbers , im happy.

i should have atleast one 285 here soon, so i may be able to push that higher.

Wicked. I would tweak my card but there's really no point.

So that's a nice score...you going to do some gaming benchmarks?

darnit, i was planning on it, got side-tracked, just rebooted to normal op speeds.. let me smoke some more cigs and ill get right back on the horse.

i didnt gain anything in 3dmark06 tho, so no update there.

ill run stalker in a few.

edit; ran stalker, no gain,

then lowered voltage to 1.2 flat, re-ran 3dmark06, got a all-time best

ORB - Compare
going to re-run stalker again.

edit: yup, 1.2v for gpu seems to be the sweet spot
another all-time best for me
