In all honesty, I can't tell a difference in most games from stock and my OC, just a slightly higher min frame rate.
EDIT: As Juano eluded to, the voltage issue only really applies to reference 570s. The DCII has beefier VRMs, so it doesn't have the same voltage issues.
I saw quite a big difference when I got it to work for a few mins. Crysis 2 went up almost 20 fps. deus ex went up 20fps as well.

Ahh that card has excellent cooling all around, including the important VRM cooling. I wouldn't be worried about even as much as 1.13v on that card and cooler so you've got nothing to worry about on 1.1v.

That said yes voltage spikes are possible, but they aren't what you might be thinking of like for intel CPUs which is the voltage being higher while idle or if load line calibration is used to counter this the LLC does introduce a chance of voltage spikes. So a smaller concern in GPUs especially with the type of voltages you will be using with above ambient cooling. What is a bigger concern IMO is the difference in the voltage you set and displayed in software voltage monitoring and the actual voltage going to your card measured via hardware means. Now neither is a big concern to you but if you were really going for a super high OC, you would want to know both the actual voltage going to your card, and be able to monitor it in real time with a digital multi meter.

Well, I was comparing in BC2 with V-Sync on, less then prime testing conditions. I haven't really messed with it since, so it might very well make a bigger difference in newer games.
On Topic: Since you have the DCII, 1.1v is perfectly safe. Feed it more volts for your OC to get stable! Your cooler should be able to keep up with the heat output pretty well too. Win-win.

alright thanks a lot, what should I use for stability test and how long? i was using the metro 2033 benchmark and it clearly didn't work because I was stable in that but not with my games. any explanation to why that is?

I like Ungine Heaven for anywhere between 15 and 45 minutes. 15 for a quick idea of stability or closer to 45 if you are doing a more final stability check. The most common artifact I've come across in Unigine are rays of colored light, almost like sun rays but in many different colors and independent of the sun. Other signs of instability would be either Unigine, your drivers, or the cards clocks crashing.

When testing stability in a certain program, in this case the Metro bench, stability is only established in that specific situation. So what may be stable for Metro may not be stable for other things. Now generally if you are stable in a program or game that is more stressful then you would not crash in a game that was less stressful, but different games can stress different parts of the card and it's overclock. Now I don't think Metro is a bad stress test, although I think I've heard the bench is not representative of gameplay so that may have something to do with it. I wouldn't give up on it, in fact I would still test in Metro in addition to Unigine and any other games you have, generally the more stressful the better, so Crysis would be good, but any will do.

hey, well I got my OC stable at 930/1900 at 1.1v. I had a question though, what does overclocking your memory do? should I lower a bit of my core clock so I can increase the memory clock?

Glad you got it working. I got to 900 MHz stable at 1100mV but then Crysis 2 forced me to lower it to 860 MHz as clearly 900 MHz was only stable in FurMark stress testing.

I would most definitely overclock the memory now. They are separate things so since your GPU is stable now, leave it there and just increase the memory clock speed now. Try for 2100 MHz. If that's stable, go for 2200 MHz. If that's stable too, try 2300 MHz. I don't think you can get more than 2300 MHz out of it, though. Be aware that the common problem with memory overclocking is artefacts appearing (white/black spots, distorted images and textures, etc). If these start appearing, just cancel the testing and lower the memory's clock speed a bit.

I've got my card (same as yours) overclocked to 860 MHz GPU and 2300 MHz memory, all with 1100mV. Keep your voltage there - it's a good value. Now just take advantage of it by overclocking memory as well!

Over clocking memory goes hand in hand with higher temps. Also the higher memory can cause core clock to become unstable where you might have to lower core to keep the higher memory and GPU stable.

Its been my experiencing memory dosen't get the kind of FPS performance gains as core. It's a fine line dealing with just the right balance.

I'd record your current performance and see what type of gains you can get. Small incremental upgrad by 15Mhz at a time with short bench for stability until you go unstable is my advice. Once you hit that instability you can back down a notch and you'll be back to stable.

Good luck and post back with your results. I just noticed you pretty new to OCN, welcome!

Ya, I'm very new just built my first rig at the beginning of August after almost six years lol.

For me as soon as I bump up memory clock to even 1950, just a 50mhz increase I get unstable. After doing some research it seems I'll hardly notice any increase with memory clock and its just a lot of unnecessary fiddling around to maybe increase it by like 30mhz lol. I may give it a shot again when midterms are over. What do you guys think? I heard memory clock only helps during higher resolutions above 1920x1080.
