Is it safe to overclock my GeForce GTX460?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
It's on 135 MHz atm. I was wondering if it's safe to overclock it abit?

And if so, what do i use to overclock it with, i don't trust MSI DualCoreCenter since it constantly gets a debug error.

Its a GeForce GTX460 768MB 710Mhz.

EDIT: It's a MSI motherboard obviously.

Do you mean it is running at 51/101/135 MHz??
Thats the Power saving profile when the card has nothing to do.

Yeah, 135mhz is the idle clock. MSI afterburner should do just fine.

Sorry, i really have no idea about clocks, at all.

Afterburner says my Core Clock is on 715 Mhz.

And the Shader Clock is 1430 Mhz.

Is it safe to overclock it, and how much? Is there a site where i can check max clock or something?

Your max clock really depends on the gpu. Each one overclocks differently. There are some good overclocking guides on here to walk you through it.
In progress.

I googled about it abit and found other people that tried to overclock the exact GPU i have, they overclocked to well over 800Mhz successfully.

There's also something called a stable overclock, what's the best program to check if my overclock is stable?

Use MSI Afterburner. increase the core speed 10mhz at a time and test for artifacts in MSI Kombuster
