Even the slightest overclock causes my system to crash, why?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to overclock my NVIDIA GTX 560 TI GPU but even the slightest overclocking via MSI Afterburner causes my graphics card to stop responding.

Default Core/Shader clocks - 900/1800

If I try to run MSI at anything over 1000/2000, my driver stops responding and I can't figure out why. My system doesn't even reach 80 degrees celsius. I'm new to overclocking but I know my system can handle a lot. It seems like I should be capable of a lot more. I've tried manually editing my bios to overclock the GPU through that but there are no options for it there other than changing the GPU Phase Control which is not what I'm looking for.

I'm just a little annoyed because I've been looking around online for 2-3 hours or so trying different overclock tools and trying different things but I can't even run a good test on this GPU and could really use some help.

Thanks guys.

Have you increased the voltage at all? That could be your problem if you haven't.

I'm looking at the MSI UI and core voltage is greyed out at min with no number attached to it. It doesn't look like I can change it.

GPUs are much more sensitive to clock changes, for them 1GHz is like 5GHz for CPUs. And 100MHz is not a slight change. EVGA markets their "Superclocked" versions with only a 20-50 MHz boost to clocks. SO try like 30 MHz in afterburner and pus up the voltage one step if possible.

Go to Afterburner's settings and check "Unlock Voltage Control" and "Unlock Voltage Monitoring." That'll let you bump up the voltage biggrin.gif

What would be a safe adjustment in MSI?

After reading the warnings and such it states it's disabled for safety reasons. Is this like, retard olympics super norton plus type of safety precautions or is it really that touchy? It's off by default with the NVIDIA 560 TI but when enabled, is at 1075.

After amping the core voltage up to 1150 from 1075, I'm still having the same issue.

I take Core/Shader clocks from 900/1800 and my display stops responding at anything over 1050/2100. My temp doesn't even reach 80 degrees celsius after 5 minutes. Am I really reaching the limits of the video card? While running the test, there's absolutely no screen tearing or anything, it looks flawless.

Just seems like I'm not really running my card to it's full potential and I'm being cut short by somethin.

1000mhz is pretty much the top end on those cards...
