    Msi 880m overclock help!

    I woke up to seeing my post featured on the main page! Thank you everyone! Just for this, I'm reviving all of this and putting the WHOLE project into a portable unit and sharing the WHOLE progress with you all! It will be a couple of days unfortunately, since over here in texas we've been hit pretty hard and I'm currently stuck in a town but I will get this rocking and rolling and ready for your viewing pleasure soon! Yes I will shortly! I am stuck in a town due to weather here in texas, but I will have more pictures and updates soon!

    Agreed! I'm surprised Minecraft hasn't died yet.

    Will do! I'll do the whole fresh install of windows 7 tomorrow when i can have access to the win7 pro discs. Honestly i can not stand everything from 7. 10 had promises, then it was released.

    UPDATE: It seems that windows 7 was always a better choice than windows 10. I've been fighting drivers for a while. The newest driver has made games switch to integrated graphics (yes, i know about forcing NVIDIA GPU), so I am trying out different drivers to see what driver will work. on another note, the old driver i used had multiple video_tdr_failure crashes to start with, so here goes to show the real challenge will to be finding the driver that will hit the "sweet spot" Nearly had a dead card as well. Apparently this card does not enjoy more voltage than intended. I had SEVERE artifacts that would not go away until i rebooted. I will eventually get this setup working without a hitch, but it's all trial and error. This laptop was never even meant to have this card as a configurable option, so this is all trial and error.

    Thanks! This setup is by far the most overkill though. This "solution" is not going to be mobile anytime soon.

    Guilty as charged on that one. Furmark either crashes the driver or freezes my system. Thanks for the tip! Once i am back home, i'll do a static test (my term of staying in one place with as much going on graphically as possible.) outside of starting area. On another note, i tried 3DMark and it used my intel hd graphics so i won't be using that xD

    I can't afford that at this time but i will purchase it. I have the witcher 3 though, will that work?

    880m watercooled overclocking.

    That would be sweet! although, the price tag for a test system like that would be kind of insane Maybe if someone finds a barebones system like that then i can throw my hardware into that and save for an additional AIO Water cooling system and another 880m!

    Here is a quick picture of temps here. Idle always is 27C (which i am proud of!) Load was used on Skyrim @1920x1200 all settings ULTRA with AA@8x and AF@16X and FXAA enabled. Mouse cursor shows temps at that current time. I would use Furmark if it didn't decide to start crashing on me after the win10 update. ;-; If you want me to use a specific program for benching/stress temp then feel free to tell me!

    LMAO yes it is. Unfortunately ;-; The card is an 880m (the notoriously hot card). and Temps coming up soon!

    It was multiple hours of trial and error with the RED/GREEN mod with zip ties, but the holes for mounting on the card had a smaller circumference than the antec water block. So after a while, knowing i had really no other route, i just half assed put electrical tape with considerable amount of pressure being applied, it stuck, and now it works. Who would've thought? posting temp pic soon!

    Here is an awful picture, but will give you an idea of what is going on. Cpu cooling is stock. Even with minor OC to the cpu, the temps stay pretty cool.

    Haha yes i do, unfortunately it is not pretty or even delightful to look at by any means necessary. I have one with me but this is in my room, pre-finalized. I'll have one uo here soon, since i am at work

    880m watercooled overclocking.

    I am working on a MSI GT60-0nc. I have a 300watt power brick for this thing just in case i decide to go insane with mods. I7 (i will get model when i am back home, i upgraded this so it isn't stock) 16gb ddr3 1600mhz ram 880m 8gb msi with watercooling 500gb samsung evo pro ssd. I will literally even buy a whole new system just to run this card if the motherboard tries to get in my way of massively OC'ing this card.

    I made a topic in the wrong section, so just look at my account and choose the only other topic (not regular to these forums) In a nutshell, i successfully installed a liquid cooling system to my 880m sitting in a MSI GT60-0NC. I know these cards are notorious for overheating and not getting the performance it can put out. This is where my project comes into play. I just got the modded vBIOS for the card, and was wondering who all wanted in on the project and give advice to push this card to its absolute limits!! Temps without modded vBIOS IDLE:27c LOAD:42C-48C (4hr gpu stress) I work 8-5 central time so i might not reply soon but rest assured i will check regularly! Thanks!
