    Just wondered if someone could help me with overclocking & undervolting my x7 v7 GPU please.

    So if i run Superposition benchmark i get a score 10417. This is with my CPU @ 4.0Ghz with a -155mV My average GPU clock is 1720mhz @ avg 0.946 V

    I use MSI afterburner and I can run 1848mhz @ 0.875 V & 200mhz mem overclock stable. Temps are much better but i only get a score if 10100? What gives?

    Any idea?

    One of Pascal's quirks is that if the voltage is too low for the given clock speed, instead of crashing it reduces performance. That's what you're seeing.

    Interesting. So the key to undervolting it is to keep the max volts at my settings and then lower it until I see a drop in performance, NOT a black screen.
    Cheers buddy.

    How are you altering clocks/voltage?

    What does your voltage/frequency graph look like?
