Overclocking GTX 460 GLH + WC.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi fellas!

So im now seting together my First WC build, also bought WC block for GTX 460 GLH. At the moment im runing my GPU stock, and my Phenom x4 965 amd on 4.2 ghz, and this actualy runs every game I've tried above 30 fps, all on max.

but still, 30 fps is not enough for me, so im now gona take my benefits of using watercooling, and I wish to max out my Gpu.

its stock setings are 800 mhz Core speed /4ghz memory.

say, if I got my core up in 900-950 mhz, and the memory up to about 4.5, how much would this actualy improve?

--this is actualy my first time overclocking my GPU, unsure if im gona flash bios or try out rivatuner for it, so any advices for how / what to use to get this done, will be much apriciated.

edit: for those who actualy wonder about the WC setup, it will be set up like this:

Resvoir -> Pump -> GPU -> 1X120mm 30 FPI Radiator -> CPU -> 1x 240 radiator 30 FPI -> resvoir ->lets go! ->->->->

Here's a review hard did showing some overclocking gains:

You aren't going to see anything major, maybe a few fps.

First make sure the clocks are stable using something like afterburner then stress testing with kombustor.

If all goes well you could do a bios flash, not necessary but a tiny bit better than using software to set overclocks.

Thanks for fast repply

well with watercooling I assume I can pump out a lot some more then with stock cooling.
but basicly, if this doesn't go well I will buy a 6950, flash it to 6970 and watercool that instead, and later buy one more for Xfire with watercooling. doesn't cost to much either, and its soon time for an upgrade...
