Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz overclocking

Q: Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz overclocking

Hello guys, I've got a simple question I'm looking for anyone who tried to OC this card and could tell me his or hers experience with it. Whether it runs too hot. What is the perfect clock speed and etc.

Thanks for any replies.

Preferred Solution: Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz overclocking

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz overclocking

I have one - in an SLI configuration with an EVGA SC.
Without upping voltage mine doesn't really OC that well ( 1070MHz core vs 1020MHz it ships with). Add a bit of voltage and it hits 1120 core (1225 boost) easily enough. It can go a little higher, but the EVGA can't keep pace (the Gigabyte is B1 silicon). Be aware that the Gigabyte's stock clock means absolutely nothing. Gaming with the card will peg the frequency at 1160-1198 depending upon the game or benchmark. Here's a Heaven run to show what I mean...

Hi, trying to overclock my i5 760 and have failed miserably so far,

I think the max i got it to so far is 3.6 Ghz, which was unstable then 3.4 Ghz which was actually ok but being really clever like i am, forgot the settings...

just need some help with the Base clock etc

anyone who has used similiar board and processor please tell me you settings...

3.8 Ghz would be max but 3.4 Ghz minimum, somewhere inbetween that plz

thank you to anyone who helps

Ive never overclocked this card of mine and am beginning to think its about time I recently ran DMark SE to see how my card - Maya Overclocking II Gigabyte 9700Pro performed I achieved a meagre score of and thats with no AA on From comparisons on the madonion website I see that I should be hitting nearly twice this so understandably I m a bit dissapointed with the current performance As a sidenote I realise that my CPU Gigabyte Maya II 9700Pro - Overclocking might be holding me back as I have only a Athlon also only a w PSU but I think I should at least reach marks or something As I understand it these s are built with overclockability in mind and Gigabyte Maya II 9700Pro - Overclocking allthough my card came with loads of extra s it did not include any overclocking software as some pros do After some research I grabbed an app called v-tuner which is designed by Gigabyte for oc ing their gc s I dont know if this is a safe app for my model card but it allows me to punch up the core and memory clocks Currently my core is and mem is Ive never done this before and can t find any specific guidance online as to safe settings and was wondering if anyone here might be able to lend me some advice before I go ahead nbsp

A:Gigabyte Maya II 9700Pro - Overclocking

samll increments..just remember......5 mhz at a time...if you see any artifacting, or your comp. just locks'vr gone too far

also, standard clocks on the R9700P are 310 memory and 324 core.....325/350 is already overclocked

Also, you 3dM01 score is indeed adysmal for your specs....more than likely, it is due to one of these items:

1) FSAA being on (I know you have it set to off, but sometimes it will take a "mode change" before it will actually re-set, ie changing resolutions and back again)
2) Anisotropic filtering being on
3) V-sync being on
4) Back-ground (anti-virus) software running in background

Try setting FSAA, AF, and V-sync to off or "appl. preference" then do a mode change, then re-run 3dM01...your score will most likely go WAY up

Once you find a stable upper limit of your card, back it off 10 mhz or so, and just leave it there. Having to set you core and menory speeds avery time you want to game is a pain, so find a nice safe overclock, and enjoy...

Good luck, and happy overlcoking

Hi I my new rig just came yesterday I installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit on it. After installing all the updates I was lucky enough to get the two additional cores unlocked. Ran prime95 for eight hours with no errors. Now I am looking into overclocking it. Wanted to know if you guys could help me locate a a good guide that is very specific, being that I have never overclocked before. I know I can use easytune but everyone seems to think it's crap and the only way to overclock is by using bios. I am fine with that but before I proceed I really need a good guide.

Thanks Rygorn

By the way I have read on a few forums that some phenom x2 users only use one of the additional cores because it allows them to overclock more. Is this true or is it a myth?

I have a Western Digital 1 TB USB 2.0 that I have connected to a computer that has Gigabyte connection to my NAS which can handle Gigabyte speeds.

I am only getting 30.1MB/s.

Is there any settings I can do to windows so that it can send faster?

A:USB2.0 HD Transfer over Gigabyte Network to Gigabyte NAS

You're doing well. Large file transfers on my system via USB 2.0 are only about 24 MB/s. I did notice when I plugged my Seagate USB 2.0 external into my SIIG USB 3.0 card, sequential reads and writes were about 15% improved. I just plugged the USB 2.0 drive in while I was waiting for USB 3.0 docking stations.

If you have a free PCIExpress slot you may get some improvement plugging the USB 2.0 into the USB 3.0 card. But using SIIG USB 3.0 docks and WD caviar black internal drives I find the drives run at full speed. Only thing is now the price bubble is preventing me from increasing my stock of internal drives.

Tom’s Hardware readers know all about overclocking, of course. In fact, many processor and graphics card reviews would be deemed incomplete without coverage of overclocking potential. Indeed, articles such as the System Builder Marathon series have a long history of specifically valuing performance achieved through overclocking rather than just through stock performance.

If you already consider yourself an enthusiast, pardon a bit of background here--we'll get into the nitty-gritty technical stuff in just a second.

What exactly is overclocking? In a nutshell, the term is used to describe running a component at a higher speed than its specification in an attempt to increase performance. Various computer components can be overclocked, including the processor, memory, and graphics card. And the degree of overclocking can include anything from simply procuring small gains from an inexpensive component all the way to seeking a level of performance way beyond what could even be purchased at that point in time.

A:gg gigabyte.


i just read that gigabyte shows 15c MORE then the normal. but when i touch the heatsink it soo hot.

the reason being is that i want to overclock my cpu but with 65 - 75c its risky.

also is there any programs that read temperatures on gigabyte motherboards

A:Gigabyte or MSI

Hi vinaypro,
Both of them are excellent boards. the tipping factor may be that Gigabyte has a reputation for having the strictest manufacturing standards in the industry.They also tend to have somewhat better heat dissipation due to more copper being used in the PCB. The Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD3r is a better overclocker (if your into that) and has slightly less power consumption. other than those two areas they run a dead heat in performance. you will be pleased with either of them ,however, being at the same price point i would recommend the Gigabyte.

Well my a little over a year old motherboard has developed a problem in which the SATA controller will stop functioning suddenly, freezing my computer and then upon rebooting it, SATA drives will not be detected.

Is there ANYTHING I can do to try to repair it? I've scanned the motherboard and it doesn't seem to have any bulging capacitors or burnt modules that can be seen with the naked eye.

Anything specific I should be looking at?

Thanks in advance!

dlettau, welcome to the forums.

If you have it set to SATA in the bios, what it is most likely asking ofr is the SATA drivers. Start here,

View forum - nForce Drivers •

and see which set is working best with the NF4 chipset and download it. Once downloaded extract it. Place the extracted files on a separate hard drive/partition or USB key (if you have one, then during the Windows install point it to the folder that contains the SATA/RAID INF.

A:How many hex bytes for gigabyte

8 bits in a byte (b)
1024 bytes in a kilobyte (KB)

Yes I would suggest using only 1 stick at a time until you find the culprit. If you have only 1 sitck, then see if you can't put in a spare or buy another to test it out. As Rick said the only way to be for sure is to replace it or take 1 out at a time.

well are you making sure you buy good quality psu's and not cheap generic ones? theres a whole bunch of story that goes behind that - just search the forum..

check that there's no shorting to the case?

all power connectors (including extra power for the motherboard if it needs it) connected, and secure?

maybe invest in a UPS or Surgemaster or the likes, because it could also be caused by irregular/spiked voltages coming throught the pc..

Hello all

I am in the process of building myself a PC.

I am looking at the GV-R489UD-1GD Gfx card however I am trying to find its dimensions so I can make sure it will fit my case.

All I have been able to find is that the card dimension is ATX.

Now I know that the ATX size is 305mm x 244mm so does that mean the GV-R489UD-1GD is the full ATX width, i.e. 244mm?

Thanks in advance


A:Gigabyte GV-R489UD-1GD

Hi kncowans.....welcome
no..... the ''ATX'' is simply referring to the type of case required to fit it, if you have an ''ATX'' case with a spare PCI-E slot (thats not covered by wires or other add in components) you'll be fine.

A client's PC won't correctly assign the IRQ for its PCI NIC. The MB is an A7XE. During post it says the PCI NIC is assigned to IRQ 10. But in Win2000 DM it says IRQ11 along with all the onboard devices, USB and sound??? Just upgraded the BIOS, no change. Tried a different brand NIC, same thing. The system seems to work fine most of the time, but every few days the network connection drops and must reboot. The OS reports NO Conficts!!
Maybe its just me...

So I built this new system 2 weeks ago, and in the last week I have been experiencing small flickering and driver crashes.

I used driver cleaner to get rid of all things to do with this card, and installed the latest drivers ( Forceware 275.33)

Since doing this this morning I have noticed the flickering is almost gone. It has happened once in the last 4 hours now, this was during a game session. So far, it has not happened on the desktop yet. This morning it was every 30 seconds on the desktop AND in game.

GPU is running very cool, both side panels have been off since I built it 2 weeks ago, MSI Afterburner registers 31 Celcius for the GPU right now.

What is a good way to stress test this card to make sure it is not the card itself? I think it is a driver issue...I HOPE it is a driver issue.

Thank you.

Probably the easiest stability check is to use Furmark, and use GPU-Z and/or Afterburner to monitor voltages/temps

See attached screenshot of what the whole thing looks like.

You're looking for artifacts on/around the the Furry doughnut and large fluctuations in voltages, as well as high temps (GPU and VRM)

THe devices list is a normal part of the boot up as is the Verifying DMI Pool. You could enter the BIOS and make sure Fast boot is enabled if it is available. Or select load optimized defaults if it isn't. You could also upgrade to WinXP. This OS is more optimized for the faster processors.

I enable it I'm curious if there is any downside especially with my OS residing on an SSD Intel X -M quot Smart QuickBoot There is nothing more frustrating than having to wait ages for your PC to boot That is why GIGABYTE developed their Smart Quickboot tool Smart Quickboot speeds up the system boot-up process and shortens the waiting time for entering the operating system It manages to do this in two ways The first is with a BIOS QuickBoot Every time you boot up your PC your BIOS checks your hardware to make sure everything is working properly This can take some time as your system checks the memory hard drives etc By enabling Smart QuickBoot your BIOS will only run through the hardware scan once If all your hardware checked out ok the next time you boot your PC will only scan the very critical components This allows you to save up to - seconds on the BIOS boot time alone The second component of Smart QuickBoot is OS QuickBoot This utility allows you to power down your PC into Suspend Mode S and Hibernate Mode S at the same time Putting your PC into S and S modes is like putting your PC to sleep allowing you to maintain your data while at the same time saving energy When you power your PC back on Smart QuickBoot will resume from Suspend Mode in a matter of a few seconds allowing you to avoid having to reboot the OS The great thing about OS QuickBoost is that your data is stored in both the memory with S state and is also stored in your hard drive for the even deeper S state This means that even if your PC is unplugged or you lose power when you next boot up your PC it will resume from S automatically using the data that was stored in your hard drive Source GIGABYTE Smart webpage Two questions Is removing hardware scan a dangerous thing I've read that it isn't a good idea to use hibernate suspense with SSDs Any other thoughts appreciated Thanks

A:Gigabyte QuickBoot + SSD = ?

Hi Sam,

There is a bit of a mixed opinion about some of these Gigabyte "utilities". I too have a Gigabyte motherboard, but steer well clear of QuickBoost, Smart6, CloudOC and the like. An SSD by itself already gives you a very significant advantage and quicker boot anyway - I just wouldn't take the risk.

I have a OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and use sleep regularly, and haven't yet noticed any downside/ill effects.

The traffic among computers connected to the switch will stay within the computers, cables and switch; will not go to the modem/router.

Is your BIOS up to date as far as version? I would agree it is a memory timing issue. Perhaps you can set the FSB to 200 and adjust your memory timings not to the default.


It also appears that you Radeon card is AGP 2X/4X and may not work correctly in the 4X/8X motherboard as it states it only supports 4X/8X AGP cards.

Indeed it is. AMD has put out a utility called AMD OverDrive for overclocking the Phenoms:,,3715_15337_15354_15359,00.html

I just got a gigabyte R7 260 in the mail changed my psu to a 500 watt and turned on my computer everything looks good I ran the cd to install the drives and it crashes every time when installing. So I go to device manager to try to update drives it says they are up to date , but there is a problem with it and it isn't using resources, weird thing is my on board graphics say the same thing now.So do I need to disable 1 or ? .I have never had problems installing a card before.I ran a dxdiag it shows no graphics at all, but that now I'm running 32 bit weird . thx for the help

What is says on both =Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52) I don't know how to change this

I just bought a new computer with following specs.

Intel core i5-4690k
Gigabyte GTX 960 2gb
Asus z97-k
Seasonic 520w
2x Kingston hyperX fury 8gb
Zalman z9

So,i did build it and all fans (also gpu) are running like they should and all cables are connected. But there is no any output from dvi or hdmi (monitor says "no signal detected")
So what is wrong with this?
I had to bend a bit the metal frame of gpu so it would fit to zalman z9 but i doubt it has nothing to do with this problem.

I recently bought this Motherboard to upgrade my VERY OLD system. The Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA78LMT-USB3. Yes, I know it's not a high performer and it's an older model but i'm not a gamer. This board has 3 display ports but it won't allow me to use the DVI or HDMI by itself. It only works if I use the 15 pin D-Sub as my main display and one of the other as a second monitor. I only need one monitor. Is there a setting that will enable me to use HDMI or DVI by itself or am I stuck with using the 15 pin only? Specs If it helps: AMD FX6300 Black Edition CPU with 16 GB of G.Skill Ripjaws X Series Ram overclocked at 1600MHzThank YouJohn

We want to help you. But few of us know that board by memoryDid you read the manual? and see if the BIOS lets you set which is monitor #1Otherwise, you would go into the Windows display properties and select which port you want to be the first monitor.See here: Help: Dual monitor setup is easy in Windows 7! It is almost the same thing in Windows XPYes, you only want one display, but you have to use the dual display tool to select which display is #1.Does that help?,157471.0.html

Gigabyte i-RAM is as some of you might already review Gigabyte i-RAM know a SATA hard disk device that uses normal DDR memory sticks Thanks to that it s faster than conventional hard disk drives the bottleneck being SATA- interface which Gigabyte i-RAM review limits the transfer speed to MB s The good news is that the transfer rate stays there Random access memory is also quick for well random Gigabyte i-RAM review access Seek times are pretty close to zero milliseconds I got this drive yesterday and I don t yet have all the memory I want Gigabyte i-RAM review for it so I took GB off my mainboard and put it into the i-RAM x Kingston PC MB ValueRAM XP x installed fine and quickly to it after I had removed unnecessary features with nLite After installing the OS and the applications I use most I have about MB free on this partition Yes not much but enough for now I can install the space-consuming applications on other partitions The thing I like most about this is of course the speed While MB s might not sound like much many drives especially RAID- combinations have higher max transfer rates it s constant and the random access time is what counts more in desktop use There is no delay in refreshing desktop icons or accessing start menu items Right-click quot New quot context menu appears instantly unlike in my other Windows installation The responsiveness overall feels much better It s quite amusing to defragment the partition with PerfectDisk too it takes about - seconds total I have read complaints about instability with i-RAM but so far I ve had no problems I ll install Acronis TrueImage later for backups and the whole PC is behind an UPS Not that it really matters because the i-RAM has its own backup battery charged by the PCI bus Pros - speed of course - ease of use it s just a SATA hard disk Cons - capacity how much is enough really - price GB ratio Another review by the Tech Report nbsp

I am building this PC with a Gigabyte GA-81915P DUO and having problems with the set up. When powering up the only things that happens is the fans come on and the front pannel lights up. No vidio or beeping to indicate a problem.


A:Gigabyte GA-81915P DUO set up

Simplify things.

Make sure all your power connections are secure. If there is a separate 4pin 12V connector instead of the 24 pin power connector make sure it is plugged in.

Start up with just CPU/fan/heatsink, video card and monitor, RAM (one stick if you have two). Reseat RAM modules and video card.

If problem continues, try the same above set up with the MB out of the case and resting on a non conductive surface like the MB box.

If the problem persists post system specs.

Here Are two motherboards I'm looking at now...

Asus P8P67
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7

Edit:The build will be a do any and everything, from gaming,surfnet,vbox,photo & video edit, to sit there and look
I'm just looking for "better" as in Specs,performance, owner input, upgradeable,ect....

Please let me know what you guys/gals think about them.
Which one is better for a new build??

Thanks, jeep

A:Asus Vs.

No such thing as "better" per se.

What is the target application or application set? That will define the scope of "better".

I do like the dual RAID support on the Asus board (but my browser is not showing anything on the details tab at NewEgg for that board, so I have not done a thorough compare.

In my opinion, both of those boards are overpriced.

Which one would you get? I'm soon going to get one, and I'm not sure which to buy...

I've used EVGA cards and am currently using one, and customer service is great, and I love EVGA precision.

However, the Gigabyte has three fans and is already overclocked (I'll still overclock it :P). Also, will EVGA Precision work with the Gigabyte card?

Edit: Also, it seems the Gigabyte one has an 8 and 6 pin connector, while the EVGA one has 2 sixes.

Anyone else having fun with these?
I have just finished building 6 new machines based on this board and 4 of them have failed to accept the drivers for the sound card. In each case the device manager shows a PCI device with no driver and the sound card is missing.
2 of the 6 boards are OK.
They have all be built by me and are otherwise all the same.
I have downloaded the latest drivers from the web site but this did not fix the problem.

A:Gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2L

1. Have you verified the BIOS version on each board? (in fact, there was a release in June, 08 to support onboard codec)

2. Summary/info of all Device Manager problems would also be helpful

Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. (It may take a short while till a second window opens)
Expand Components (click + sign next to it)
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click it, then Edit->Select All then Edit->Copy and then paste into your next post

Before installing my OS i could not get video on my screen. After taking the card out I could load bios and the screen was fine. Now after loading up Windows 7, I plug in my GTX 670 and there is no video whatsoever. Is there something I need to do in BIOS? My motherboard is a ga-z77x-ud5h, with 16 GB ram and i7 3770k.

Probably a very fundamentally easy question, but I'm cure if this motherboard is compatible with this card :

It's a GeForce GTX 650 PCI Express 3.0. My mainboard is only PCI Express 1, I believe. Is this card backwards compatible? I can't seem to find any info on the web.

Thank you very much for reading, and I appreciate any information !

A:Gigabyte P35-DS3R

Is this card backwards compatible?Click to expand...


PCI Express operates in consumer, server, and industrial applications, as a motherboard-level interconnect (to link motherboard-mounted peripherals), a passive backplane interconnect and as an expansion card interface for add-in boards.
In virtually all modern (as of 2012) PCs, from consumer laptops and desktops to enterprise data servers, the PCIe bus serves as the primary motherboard-level interconnect, connecting the host system-processor with both integrated-peripherals (surface-mounted ICs) and add-on peripherals (expansion cards.) In most of these systems, the PCIe bus co-exists with one or more legacy PCI buses, for backward compatibility with the large body of legacy PCI peripherals.

A:Anyone with a Gigabyte GA-7ZXE?

the less than spectacular reviews were probably due to the KT133 chipset which was a very buggy chipset. that is why they came out with the KT133A which helped iron out some of the bugs.

personally I would not buy a board with a KT133 chipset regardless of the price or manufacturer actually I should say I will not buy another KT133 board since I had one KT133A board which I recently got rid of.

A friend of mine is looking for a psu for his build. I'm not sure about his whole setup, but he is going to run a HD5770 gpu and a Phenom II X2 cpu. The thing is, the only psu that sounds better than Aopen and Raidmax(where he lives) is a Gigabyte Odin 585.
He can't do online orders from where he is and the only psu that is available to him is the Odin 585.
Should he go for it or is it ultimate crap?

A:Gigabyte Odin 585? ?

Some of the higher end RAIDMAX units aren't complete crap, same with the AOpen ones. The Gigabyte Odin I'd be more willing to trust but its not that good either, 16 and 18 AMPs on the two +12 volt rails. They can't custom order anything else?

I'm trying to free up space on my labtop and i'm doing a computer analysis on finding what is using up my computer. Tracing where all the memory is coming from and what is using up my space, i've come to find out that through my calculations i've discovered that i am suppose to have at least a gig left. But my computer says that i have barely any memory left to use. Whats going on? need help...

Not trying to be prideful here but i doubt that i had miscalculated. I checked.

A:Unknown Gigabyte

Windows manages your memory constantly depending on what demands open programs and system processes place on it and uses memory for system processes and maintenance when other aps are not using memory.

Space and memory are two different things.

You can determine exactly what is taking space on the hard drive by using Windows Explorer - the size of every file if you want to.

How much ram do you have and what kinds of problems are you experiencing?

Hey folks ... I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about this board. I read a review at Hard OCP but I wanted to find out a little more info on it.

Or if anyone has something they think is a better board. It's a P4 board that will take either 400 or 533 fsb cpu's and takes pc800 or 1066 (I guess thats obvious).

Any help at all would be great. If someone HAS this board or knows someone that has it .. that would be even better.

Hi guys i need your help i was thinking of getting a GT 440 to replace my card now i know about the psu and i need a new one for this card but will the Dell Inspiron Case make the card too hot? will it overheat?

A:Gigabyte Geforce GT 440 1gb

It's an entry level card so it shouldn't get too hot. They also come with various heatsinks and fans, some only have a fan, others have small fans while others have large fans and take up two slots.

But it depends on the exact model of Inspiron you have as there are hundreds of different models with significantly different case designs and sizes.
