    I am getting the same identical score on Heaven Benchmark running Stock and Overclock no idea why.

    This is my Overclock Core at +170 memory at +800. I was hoping the score and FPS would go up at least by 5% or even 10% but they are identical on both instances stock and Overclock. I am not gaining a single FPS Overclocking. Have no clue why its doing this.

    Any idea what to do or what could be going on? Would love to Overclock this bad boy.

    What CPU? You may be getting bottlenecked.

    Nvidia cards pretty much automatically overclock themselves depending on load/usage. Even with it supposedly turned it off I'll still see it bump clocks up above "stock". I tried manually overclocking my 1080 and it still benchmarked lower than just leaving it on auto so I left it alone.

    Not sure how much overhead those 2060's have, if much really.

    I have the i7 6700K. I feel stupid. My score went up almost 600 points on Fire Strike after I restarted with a different Overclock oddly enough I can't get more than 2040 Mhz on the core so I can only push +70 on Core. I've read of people getting 2070 and upwards of 2170. I wonder if I'd be able to go up if I increase the voltage? By the way the Overclock above is faulty does not work. The highest I can go is +70 Core and +400 Memory, I can't push Core anymore but I think I could push memory.

    Probably depends on the card but in my experience it seems you get more gains from core clock and negligible to even negative with memory. Too high of memory clock can make it slightly unstable and dip. I will admit I speak primarily from my experience with AMD cards and honestly don't know the intricacies of Nvidia's tech and how it responds. For instance though. My R9 390 was 1040/1500 out of the box for core/memory. I did extensive overclocking and benchmarking and found that the best results were at 1100/1500 at stock voltage. I could get it all the way up to 1140/1600 with a +50 voltage bump and it would be "stable" but performance wasn't consistent. I found that just leaving memory alone entirely gave me more headroom for core which netted better results.

    Yes I've being hearing this pretty often on Reddit and Facebook Computer Groups I am in. I found out my self the same exact thing 400 memory is the perfect amount anything passed that does become unstable.

    Here are two screenshots, One Stock GPU and one Overclock. I'd say its a pretty decent Overclock quiet frankly. Unfortunately is the highest I can go without increasing voltage and I don't know how voltage works so I don't want to mess with it unless I get some instructions on what to do. I'd love to get a tad bit higher score and FPS with a higher Overclock, time will tell see what I find and learn, in the mean time this is the best its going to get.

    The highest Fire Strike Score recorded with my same Specs was 1273 Points higher than my Score. This is the highest Score (Screenshot below) Followed by My Score. Would love to be somewhere near the range of the Highest Fire Strike Score if possible, there has to be a way, that's why I think maybe bumping up the Voltage but never done it before don't want to mess with it.

    Voltage bumps are pretty safe, they've got a hardware lockout from going too high unless you flash the card with a custom vBIOS. I'd start with a +20mV voltage bump. Test, document, and keep bumping and testing 5-10mV at a time. Either you're going to get too hot, unstable/worse performance, or it'll just crash outright. Usually +50mV is pretty safe. Just don't make huge changes all at once and test thoroughly and you'll be fine. Stuff is pretty foolproof these days.

    You definitely look like you're getting gains there on heaven. Pretty typical in my experience.

    Don't put too much stock in other people's benchmark scores, there's a ton of variables at play. Things like RAM speeds/timings and power management controls can affect them quite a bit. Did you check the score breakdown? Wonder if he's got a higher physics score due to a CPU overclock.

    I did check and yes he did get higher. But on the Fire Strike score it says he isn't overclock if you notice the screenshot it reads 4,007 Mhz unless that isn't accurate. The highest I can overclock my CPU is 4.5Ghz on Air, don't have AIO. And every time I run Fire Strike with the Overclock Fire Strike Crashes and it says Nvidia Driver has crashed, no idea why so I can't test and see what results I'd get at 4.5Ghz might try 4.4Ghz see if that's more stable.

    His clock speed is assuredly not accurate. It frequently reports base clock and not boost and he could be pushing 5.0GHz on water *shrug*.

    Yours even says 4.0 as well. If you're crashing at all you need to dial something back.

    Oh okay kinda figured. Following your guideline to Bumping/Increasing voltage, testing now. Would LOVE to be in his range.
