post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a galaxy GT 240 512mb card, and im gonna upgrade to a gtx 570 here pretty soon. I just want to have some fun with this before i got my new card, and figured if i fried it itd be no big deal. Now the question is, how do i do it? i installed river tuner... and have no idea what to do in there lol. Any help?

Uninstall RivaTuner.
Download MSI Afterburner (works even if you don't have a MSI GPU)
Slowly up the Core & Memory clock.
Check for stability with MSI Kombuster.

I actually found that with my bro's GT 240, it had driver issues with a high OC, it would only operate at about 25% performance, watch out for that.

To do the overclock, download Afterburner, drag the core slider up, then when it isn't stable drag the voltage up a notch, make sure to unlock voltage control and force constant voltage in settings

I was thinking EVGA gtx 570 superclocked. The one with the lifetime warrenty. Ive seen people on here overclock it and have it be faster than a 580! http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/9513...-vs-580-a.html

I know overclocking voids warrentys, but if i have to return it i wont mention i OC'd it! I mean, how they gonna know? lol.

I have this one http://gr.msi.com/product/vga/N570GT...-Frozr-II.html OC to 920/2150 which is much higher than the one in the benchmark. My max temp in full load is 65-67C and i strongly recommened it.
