NVIDIA [GTX 560/560 Ti] OC Club - Page 69

post #681 of 810
It was a sad afternoon today when I was getting ready to install windows 8. I turned my computer off and took a hard drive out. Then I put the hard drive back in. Upon doing so my computer booted up but showed no signs of video. After checking connections and rebooting it seemed as though my 560Ti was flat lining. I checked for any visual signs of damage and there were none. I tried different ports on the card itself as well as different slots on the motherboard. I also tried the card in a different computer. I am pronouncing my 560Ti dead as of November 25th 2012. It had a good run but did not last nearly as long as I had wanted.

I am unsure of the cause of this sudden death but I have beat my head against a wall for the last 4 hours trying to figure it out. I am pretty broken up about the whole situation and I feel as though only a 660Ti could take its place in my arsenal. Cyber monday will hopefully have a nice 660Ti in store for me.

Oh no! May your 560 Ti rest in peace. Tell us how your 660 Ti is, if you get one.

Hey guys, I'm unsucssessfully searching for help on unlocking the core clock on a Asus GTX-560 DCII TOP past 1000Mhz. I'm running at 999.8 @1.055v which is the absolute maximum I can get, no matter how far I "slide" the MSI Afterburner core clock bar. It will indicate a higher clock, as will GPU-Z on the front page. But alas the actual clock is only 999.8, which is an apparent "cap" in the BIOS. I successfully flashed my GTX580 for higher voltage, which was actually pretty simple. But apparently there is no easy fix for this. Just wondering if anyone has any experience in accomplishing raising the core clock limit. I still have .022 volts to play with and would like to see what this card can do. I fold on it 24/7, so she gets a workout.

In my sig there is a guide to flashing a new bios and creating a modified bios for this card. I did it with success and pushed my voltage to 1.212V and went above 1000MHz.

Quick question here guys. Currently running a single oc'ed MSI twin frozr II 560 ti (not the 448 core model) and i'm considering adding a second in SLI. Or would I be better off selling the current 560 and taking that $200 and buying a better card like a 670 or something?

two 560 ti's better than a single 670?

Where can you get 200 for a 560 Ti, even if it was a 448 core. Most of them are on sale for under 200 as it is and because it is used, you might want to chop that number in half and even then you have to find a buyer. Also a 670 costs quite a bit more than a 560 Ti. Try to sell the 560Ti and get a 660Ti imho. You can clock the 660Ti to bench better than a 670 and its almost 100 dollars less.(unless you buy a water block wink.gif)

I haven't actually researched your thread yet but I do have a question and comment. First, my voltage is no issue. I can unlock that easy enough. But the Core Clock is factory locked at 1000. I've cranked mine up and everything more or less shows a high clock but in reality it never goes above 999.8Mhz. Will your guide address this?

EDIT: I just reviewed your guide. It's the one I used to increase my voltage limit on my 580. Worked like a dream! But I can't do anything with this on the 560. Myself and others have tried different methods to unlock the Core Clock and nothing has worked.

Sorry i meant take the $200 i was going to spend on buying the second card + whatever i could sell the original 560ti for and buy a new card. I wouldnt expect more than $125 out of my used card on a great day.
So you're saying one over clocked 660ti would out perform a pair of overclocked 560ti's? If not then I'll just buy a second 560ti to match my current one.

I would suggest 660Ti all day. Hands down.
