    Talking Titan Black Overclock Help/advice

    Hello everyone

    I'm new on here, haven't posted before, so hello to one ​and all, I'm here to learn and hopefully be able to help new people to overclocking like myself one day.



    I've been researching now for the past few months with regards to an overclocking problem I'm encountering wth my sli Titan Black setup.

    I'm using MSI Afterburner, monitoring with GPUZ. I've also tried exactly the same procedure with EVGA Percision with the same results.

    I've slowly began to overclock my Titans, I increased both core and memory clocks in small increments of 5, I unlocked the core in MSI Afterburner settings and placed the VCore on the main GUI to 106. No regardless of whatever overclocking MHz I use I consistently achieve worse FPS than that of the stock Titan's. In actual fact whilst leaving the Titan's at stock I still get very poor FPS with Unigine 4.0 at all settings with the program. The best FPS I've had is around 40/50, this is pretty bad right ?

    I then tried to run a benchmark with Tombraider, both overclocked and stock, the results were equally as bad at Ultra settings within the game. My FPS were around 30 FPS.

    I'm obviously doing something wrong here, this is the first overclock I've ever attempted so please excuse my ignorance.

    A brief of my machine....

    CPU = 4930k @ stock 3.9 'OEM' (watercooled)
    MBOARD = Asus Rampage IV Black Edition (watercooled)
    RAM = Corsair Vengeance Pro Red 16gb (2x8) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel Memory Kit
    PSU = SuperFlower Leadex Platinum 1000W Fully Modular 80 Plus
    GRAPHICS = x2 MSI GeForce TITAN Black Edition 6144MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (Watercooled)

    The graphics are on a loop by themselves, temps (crysis 3/BF 4/Arma 3/GTA 5) @ ~40 Celsius.
    CPU TEMP ~40-50 Celsius also under max settings
    HDD = Samsung 250GB 840 Evo
    Direct X 11
    Graphics Driver = 356.86

    Thank you in advance for any help you guys can offer, I'm totally lost here, it's obviously something I'm doing wrong but im just learning.

    Why you want to OC the Titans? Did you enable SLI mode in NVIDIA Control Panel
    Enabling SLI
    Right-click on your desktop and select NVidia Control Panel. This will open a new window which will allow you to tweak your graphic’s settings. Find the menu option labeled “Configure SLI, Surround, Physx”.
    Select “Maximize 3D performance” and click Apply.
    The screen will flash several times as the SLI configuration is enabled. You will be asked if you want to keep these settings.
    If the option is not there, your system is most likely not recognizing one or more of your cards. Open the Device Manager in the Control Panel and check that all of your drives are visible under the Display Adapters section. If your cards are not showing up, check that they are connected properly, and that the drivers have been installed for all of them.

    Turn on SLI.
    Click the Manage 3D Settings link in the left menu. Under Global Settings, scroll down until you find the “SLI performance mode” entry. Change the settings from “Single GPU” to “Alternate Frame Rendering 2”. This will turn on SLI mode for all of your programs.
    You can make adjustments to individual games by clicking the Program Settings tab and then selecting “SLI performance mode”.


    With two Titan Black in SLI there is no need to OC your GPUs (IMHO).

    PS1. If you still want to OC the GPUs reed thos two great OC guide:

    Hi Smiki007

    Really appreciate your info, there are 2 things which I didn't try, checking in device manager for a start, both to see if both cards are actually there, if so, checking that the latest drivers have actually been installed on both cards. Also going to check if I'd turned on alternate frame rendering 2 under global, I'm sure I did but however I may have only done this under certain games and programs. I'll have a check tonight when I'm home mate and report back on here

    A massive thank you for posting the links to those OC guides, I'll have a good read through them tonight too and let you know the outcome.

    i only wanted to overclock just to see what I could achieve mate, I read reviews and aricles about the cards all saying what they've been able to achieve both via air and water, could thought it would be very interesting to check mine. I think from doing so I'd also learn a few things, there seems to be a lot of posts on the Internet about people wanting advice, so hopefully if I become more experienced myself I'd be able to offer a helpful hand.

    Thank you again mate, really appreciate you replying to me and the info you provided, I'll post back on here later and let you know the outcome.

    Hi Smiki007

    Success!

    I followed everything you said, everything was fine in with drivers and Device Manager, however in the nVidia Control Panel in Global I had SLI Performace Mode set to 'Single GPU' so I changed that as you advised for all programs. That did help qu a lot in many games and programs, however there were a few older games it lagged slightly but that's to be expected I guess, so I just changed those programs in their indivual settings.

    With the OC, I read both those guides you linked me to several times, they are pretty darn good guides, thank you for that. Previous to reading those guides I'd just been following Youtube vid's and other forums and everything basically became a mismatch of information. I had been clocking the CPU offset and the Mem offset o the same at every single increment, this time using EVGA Precision I just increased the CPU steadily until I got artefacts with games then backed off a little. My final setting was CPU +200 and MEM +25. Got some awesome results, I really only had time to test Tombraider and Crysis 3, Tombraider I achieved ~185 FPS @ 2560x1440 @ Ultra everything with hair on normal (I read that tesselation for her hair was more of a AMD thing ??) On 4k I managed @ Ultra, again with hair on normal managed ~93. I was very very very happy mate.

    Crysis 3 @ 2560x1440 everything Ultra ~75 FPS then @ 4k ~46 FPS at Ultra

    Temperatures were for all benches ~40 Celcius.

    Im very very very happy buddy, thank you for your advice and pointing me in the right direction I really appreciate this.

    Respectfully

    OK. Good luck, let us know if you need some additional help.
    PS. You can start OC just rising the base clock, using MSI Afterburner, for let say +137MHz, without touching anything else (memory clock, voltage). OC the Titan is pretty similar to OC GTX 780, I've managed to OC my two GTX 780 in SLI to +167 Base Clock, +148 Memory Clock without rising the Core Voltage.
