my first OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I just did a small over clock on my GPU. Pushed the core from 900 to 950 and memory from 2106-2150. I also changed the fan profile a little Then I ran the furmark burn-in for 20 mins everything went smoothly max temp was 80 and hovered around the 76-78C mark. FPS was pretty low though 23 was the average, but that's with everything enabled. Idle temp is 40C.

What else can i do to check for stability.

And should I push the the GPU to the 975/2200 level or even 1000/2225 level

First off, FPS on Furmark isn't a huge concern as it's mainly a temperature/stability testing program. As long as temps stay fairly low and you're not getting artifacts, you're in the clear.

As for what to use to check for stability, I use Unigine Heaven. It usually crashes if your GPU is unstable. I'd recommend also just playing some of your favorite games as well, because that's what the card is being used for (I assume). Longer gaming sessions will give you a better idea of whether or not the clocks are stable.

If the card is stable and stays cool (my suggestion is to not let card temps sit over 85C during load, but that's just my preference), I see no reason why you shouldn't try to push your card further. What's there to lose?

And congratulations on your first OC!
