    Going to give MSI Afterburner ago for my Zotac instead of Firestorm. See how that goes. My 6700K and RAM is maxed @ 105% to the point of dying... Omly way I stand a chance of 10K is Nessie

    @worf105, one thing I did learn about Pascal is sometimes less is more. When I needed the 2 more points, I just bumped my memory another +50 and figured that should get me there. I scored lower, and did it consistently. When I backed off, it got me back up to where I was. Darn Pascal. There's so many things about it I can't figure out. I like to understand why and how things work.

    My graphics score is around the same (11000+/-) every run with the core +50 to +80 added and +560 to +585 added to the memory. My RAM is doing well at 3200Mhz 14 15 15 31 1t @ 1.4v. But it's my poor lazy 6700k only managing 5.1 5.1 5.0 5.0 with 5.0 on cache @ funny voltages. My research has found that having 4 sticks of RAM against only 2 sticks yealds better results. Not needing or going to buy more for a point lol. Will be saving for skylake x platform but will give Ryzen it's full consideration.

    I've heard that about Skylake too, which is contrary to all previous conventional wisdom. It has always been that you have 2 memory controllers on chip. Populating both channels puts more strain on the CPU and hurts overclocking. But, I've heard that Skylake is different.

    Doubt it'll help, but what the heck:

The fans are real quiet. Even at 80%-90% you can hear them, but hear air moving more than the fans. I did think of using K boost, but never had any luck at all with it before. It may work on Pascal, something needs to.

    The cards themselves are a beast. It scored 10.2+ graphics in Time Spy out of the box, nothing changed. That shows how little I actually overclocked it. But, at stock I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to FPS in SGW, but the times I did look it was running 147 or so. I only played for about 30 minutes to take a break from benches.
    A beast indeed and performing (10.2 stock in Time Spy) as advertised. The 147 in SGW3 is impressive. I think the HIGHEST I get is in the upper 120's. As I mentioned, SGW3 is an old engine. You would really see that GPU shine in the latest "Nvidia sponsored" games and graphic features.

    Given the fan design on the FTW 3, my basic logic would tell me you are better off ocing with XOC. If AB leaves your other two fans at default speeds that can only be a disadvantage given Pascal is all about keeping things cool. Good to hear you're impressed with the fans. Been hearing good things about them.

    Pascal is cooling boosted lower the clocks the higher the boost with the proper cooling

    That is what i am seeing boosting core clock does nothing it will boost to max anyway

    For those that are stuck, I "stumbled across" this: Optimizing RAM Performance for 3DMark Time Spy - Overclocking.Guide

    Pro OC overclocker Alva “Lucky_n00b” Jonathan dives in to optimizing RAM performance for Futuremark’s latest DirectX12 benchmark Time Spy.
    It’s been only a few weeks since Futuremark’s latest Benchmark, 3DMark Time Spy, was released to public. Now, overclockers and enthusiasts alike can start benching their system, and find out how their system compare to each other in that shiny new DX12 Benchmark – utilizing the modern APIs capability, like Multi-threaded Rendering, Explicit Multi-adapter, and Asynchronous Compute.
    Normally, 3DMark are 3D-heavy, meaning that the performance effect of the GPU is much, much more apparent compared to the other system components, like CPU and RAM. This means an Core i7 6950X paired with GeForce GTX 950 will definitely give a much lower overall score compared a PC with Core i7-6700K with GeForce GTX 980 Ti. It doesn’t matter how much you push your CPU Scores by overclocking your CPU and RAM, it won’t give good scores if you have a weak GPU.
    But there’s some scenarios where some components other than the GPU can give a small yet nice ‘boost’ to the overall scores. As a competitive overclocker who really cares about squeezing every bit of performance out of my system, I will explain how a simply optimizing RAM performance can give a little extra overall scores in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark.
    Ok, here we go!
