Confusion about Stock Overclock

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This has been nagging away at me for a long time.

So... if you buy the same cards, for example the N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II card, it runs at 822MHz. Can it easily be overclocked to match the N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/SOC with a stock clock of 950MHz?

Is there any actual physical difference between the cards? Are there any real differences, or does one just come with higher stocks? And are the non-overclocked cards capped at a clock, or is it truly pointless to buy a factory OC card?

And on a slightly unrelated note, can you SLI a 560 and a 560Ti?

P.S. Just asking because I'm wondering, I bought my 560Ti OC card because it was on offer and cheaper than the stock card when I got it

1. The reason for buying a factory over clocked card is that you're guaranteed that over clock (although some are very small, but you won't void your warranty potentially by having that "over clock") and they usually bin those chips that are factory over clocked so they are typically better chips.

2. See above about binning, other than that, no they are physically the same card (as long as they have the same cooler, etc.)

3. No you cannot SLI a 560 and a 560ti, with Nvidia you must have the same exact card (manufacture doesn't matter) - I never saw a point in using a system where you use two different cards such as AMD allows, you always get the slower end of it, not the faster.
