    Basically got a flat line that tuns at the desired 'clock'
    I shoes that I'm holding it at thee set volts but just doesn't seem make any speedy difference. If fact, as you cam see, it makes it perform worse!!

    N. B. Not my graph but looks like this

    OK. if you're not power modding it will be dropping back down the boost graph under power limit, and not using your overclocked 'top of the cliff' max voltage point.

    Run FS in a window, with that graph open, along with gpuz/hwinfo/AB graphs showing power use. Watch where your power use sits (~115W on default msi 1070 for example), and also watch where the crosshair sits on the graph.

    If you haven't touched the left end of the curve, and power limit keeps it away from your clifftop point, it will be running pretty much exactly the same as stock.

    When I generate a graph, first I set a +offset clock, THEN flatten from the desired max voltage. That way the low end of the curve is also overclocked should clocks fall back down under power limit.

    Cheers I'll try that tonight. I think mine is 115w as well.

    When I've had the graph open when running heaven benchmark. It goes straight to my desired clock (1797mhz) and I'm not hitting 115w. Think it's about 106w. I saw the video about false clock readings hence i tried with 1.062v at that speed and still no joy.

    With 100% core utilisation? And no power throttle flag in Hwinfo/GPUz/etc?

    Default.jpg +100 both.jpg 1797mhx 0.981mV.jpg
    First pic default, then +100 mem and core, and then 1797mhz @ 0.981mV
    Hope this sheds a little light on the situation.

    Why are you testing at such a low resolution? You're CPU-limited at times, so differences in GPU performance, especially minor ones, are gonna be masked.

    Just so i could see what was happening. Running it in full screen still has the same performance hit on the gpu.

    Run it in fullscreen 1080p.

    The middle image has the highest score because on average it's boosting higher than the top and bottom, and also has a memory OC.

    The results i posted up are 1080p firestrike. Yeah I always get higher scores when i overclock. It's just when i set a clock that's higher than the average over an overclocked, or the same. The score is much lower.
