OC the GTX 560ti - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Use Afterburner to OC it, but use OC Scanner to test it.

MSI Afterburner > EVGA Precision
EVGA OC Scanner > MSI Kombustor

OCCT is also good but OC Scanner is best.

It doesn't matter which program you use to OC either. I have an eVGA GTX 460 and use MSI Afterburner to monitor/OC. It's easy to use and works like a charm. I also used OCCT to test it for stability.

If you download OCCT run it for about 15 minutes. This is usually enough time for it to weed out any errors your video card might have. Most users recommend you run a regular test and then an 'error check' test(there's an option to enable error checking) for complete stability testing.

With your 560ti you can start at 50mhz intervals. The card has been known to handle 900+ just fine. Start with stock voltage to find out just how high your card can go and use those as your default clocks from there out. Then start upping the voltage as you OC some more to see where you can max it. 1.087v is the fail safe limit for most programs.

Didn't say that restarting would tell you if you OC is stable.

i only managed to get up to 950 core and 2100 mem. would changing the voltage push it further?
