    What is your memory OC? I was able to push mine pretty high (700-1000) and it eeks out a few more points for FS.

    It’s better to do this using CRU as not all games will recognize custom resolutions set in the Nvidia driver.

    I have tried just about everything from 200MHz to 1200MHz with no real gain in performance beyond +600MHz offset. It's Samsung memory It will run at nearly any value, but the score does not change much regardless of memory speeds for my unit.

    In the grand scheme of things the difference in scores is 17.9K to 18.2K roughly. So...1.5%? If I can do math (debatable). I think that's totally acceptable, some cards have a small edge. When it comes to actual gaming, that is a basically imperceptible difference to anything but a machine (and internet forum junkies haha).

    I've only tried Far Cry: New Dawn, World War Z, PUBG, and Astroneer but all have run great! Should I run into any issues in-game I'll give CRU a shot.

    Nvidia custom resolution works in games that let you select the display mode inside them, but for games that do not they will default to 144Hz unless you use EDID override (CRU).

    Another benefit of using CRU is that it allows you to use DSR also, since Nvidia custom res requires disabling DSR.

    So I finally ran a stress test; my cpu hits 82 C and remains there after about 5 minutes on AIDA64. Is this something to worry about?

    Not at all. 82C is very safe, most out of the box will hit mid-90's which concerns me more.

    You could try adding a slight + offset to the fan curve to help with cooling.

    New score. I am somewhat pleased. Only somewhat because while it is benchmark stable run after run...it is not game stable. But a valid score is a valid score, after all.

    Cool thanks!

    I also tried running the auto scan feature in Afterburner, but my computer shut down once I reached step 3/4. Did I do something wrong? All I did was click on the OC scanner button then hit “scan”.


    EDIT disregard, I’ve figured it out

    I would not use auto scanning ocing anyway.
