Stuck in single SLI - Page 3

post #21 of 31
You can go crazy with it. They did that because not every GPU chip performs the same. Some OC better than others, if they stick to a frequency like 900Mhz and ship all the cards in that freq, some cards will be able to do it, some won't. Plus, some people don't have the cooling methods to take care of the excess heat generated from the card overclocked. That's why they stick to lower freqs. You are free to play around with the freq + voltages however you want.

Your card shouldn't have a problem overclocking, but take note of the temps. Use Furmark and Kombustor to monitor the temps.

So as long as I don't go above 85-90C and have no artifacts/bluescreens while gaming or benchmarking, it's considered stable?

Yep, pretty much. Another good test is Folding@Home, that'll point out instability very well, in addition to being for a good cause.

Sounds like a pretty good deal... if I were to go pretty far with the OC would that reduce the life of the card a tremendous amount?

I very seriously doubt you would notice the effects of degradation. Most likely, as long as you aren't going over the temperature threshold or past the recommended voltage, it wouldn't show up for years. By then, you'll most likely have a new card, and even if you don't, it may or may not still be under warranty. I'm not familiar with the warranty on that specific card.

So when I OC what increments should I increase the voltage by, if I do that side by side the clocks?

I'd just leave the voltage alone for right now. Push the GPU clock up by 15-20MHz and test. Might want to try starting from the SC stock clocks though, and go up from there.

Yep, I matched it to SC clocks and nothing has exploded yet. Thanks for your help

Related to my original post, when replacing a motherboard is it difficult to remove/reseat a CPU. Like anything I would need a soldering iron/special tools for? Or can everything be done with a screwdriver?

Don't even really need a screwdriver. All you do is remove the cooler and lift the arm, it just sets in the socket. Just be careful not to bend any pins.

Ah okay. I'm gonna save this info for future reference as I'm not going to get a new motherboard if my 560ti can perform well..but it sounds less scary than some people made it out to be so I'm not that worried about doing it myself.
