My first successful OC?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I basically want to get feedback and see if I went about this correctly. So anyway I have successfully overclocked my http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121466 ..... I think haha. I pushed the core from 810 to 935MHz (linked it to my shader so that the shader is exactly 2x that of the core clock) and my memory from 4008MHz to 4950MHz. Ran GPU Tool for 15 minutes and no errors. All temps are under 60C at any GPU usage with fans running no more than 75%. I play BFBC2 with everything cranked and my FPS went from 54-60fps to 72-82fps, memory usage went from 800Mb to 680-700Mb. Please leave any useful comments or tips ^^

To answer your question yes it was your first successful overclock!

Well I just wanted to know if it looked to someone else like I might have messed it up. Pretty much as soon as I started getting artifacts I backed it off a tiny bit. I am not able to play with the voltage on this card though I dont think, Ive tried many different things to try and unlock the voltage control through MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 and none were successful (this includes going into the CFG file and settings and checking off unlock, but its still greyed out). All of my overclocking was done without adjusting voltage. If anyone knows of a way I can unlock the voltage or if I even can with this card please let me know. If I do find a way to play with voltage can I increase it slightly to get a higher clock without artifacts? Also how much does overclocking decrease the life of a GPU? Asus says my card can stand 82C MAX and I dont go over 60C.

Alright I downloaded MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 8 and I can unlock the voltage control. I now have a stable OC for my card thats much higher than it was before. I managed to get Core: 990MHz Memory: 5000MHz with a voltage of 1.025Mv.

Its like with anything fast/modified in life. The more you push it past stock the higher the chance for failure. For example this goes with cars as well. Although I wouldnt worry abt the temps ur pulling modern cards can take that no sweat just be careful about going higher with the voltage.

You can probably keep going if you're confident enough. I've got my 560 Ti @ 1.1v 1GhZ on the core and a 100mhz increase on the memory.

Maybe try lowering the memory clock and see if you can increase the core/shader further as that apparently brings higher increases compared to increasing the memory clock. I haven't fully tested that theory yet but I seem to be able to push my core a bit past 1Ghz if I lower my memory clocks to stock.

Nah I backed it down a ton, what i ended up doing was downloading the ASUS Gpu tweak tool, linking my core to my voltage and putting it at 910Mhz core. Then I took my voltage and core clock and put the OC in place with MSI afterburner because it has better fan control options and OSD. I basically have a stock superclocked 560 ti right now with the way its set up. Seems stable. no artifacting or heat issues.
