GTX 460 768mb OC

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. Yesterday i just received my Inno3d GTX 460 768mb OC.
Installed it last night and up until today i had it running just to make sure it doesnt falter. And it didnt! I just upgraded from a GTS 250 and I must say I'm seeing a big increase in FPS.

So I'm satisfied - or so i think i was tongue.gif

The card is factory overclocked with these speeds (GPU-Z)

So i was wondering if i could still overclock it a little bit. Like raising the Core speed from 750mhz - 800mhz and the memory from 950mhz-1ghz.

The cards temps idles at 36 C's and goes up to 75 C's on full load (im not sure if thats full coz when i play Crysis 2 it gets to 75 C's)

Will it be safe to overclock it with 50mhz more?

Thanks ^_^
Champ

Welcome to OCN! cheers.gif

800MHz on the core clock is very achievable, and you should have no problem getting there. Just don't forget to increase the voltage if necessary. The memory OC will also be pretty easy, although you won't see as much of a performance increase from it.

So yup! Should be perfectly safe. Your temps look fine too. Everyone has a different comfort level though.

Hope the OC goes well, let us know if you need any tips smile.gif

Well that sound nice. Thanks for the welcome greeting btw!
Okay so im using EVGA precision as my tool and gonna raise it +50mhz more.
And my only reason for this is that i have a thing with numbers. I really dont like it when my clocks arent rounded off to the nearest 100 (lol)

Wow thats nice. But your 460 is an ASUS with Direct CU technology which i think is better when it comes to cooling. Will my Inno3d reach the same?

You can run a stress test with Furmark or OCCT. Be sure to watch your temps though, cause these will get your card hotter than any game ever will. Check for artifacts and errors (oftentimes white pixels or other strange-looking things). OCCT has a built-in error scanner, so that's pretty useful. You can also use Heaven, which will stress your card similar to how a game would. If you get a crash in any of those, increase the voltage (or decrease core clock) by a notch, then try again.

Or you could always just go and play some games biggrin.gif If anything crashes, bump the voltage up a notch.

Good luck! I'm off to bed, so forgive me if I'm unresponsive. Need those ZZZs.

OCCT and furmark are nice, but not perfect. They don't check stability in DX11 and tesselation subjects, so I'd also check stability in Unigine Heaven benchmark at the highest detail settings;)

UPDATE:

I ran Furmark for about 30 mins and only got a max temp of 75 C's - thats good right?

I also ran Heaven Benchmark, here's the screen.

I ran it 3 times. The screenshot being the third one.

Quite ok right?

75 max sounds good to me. I think my PSU was holding me back with this card because before I couldn't get very high into the 700's, now I put it from 700 to 775 on a whim and saw no issues, 30's and 40's at full load, and a big FPS boost in Bad company 2. Nice numbers!
