Best 560 TI for Overclocking?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What brand/model 560 TI has the most flexibility for overclocking, or am I just overthinking and are they are pretty much the same?

Hawk definitely. I gt the DCUII cooler 560ti 2nd hand just ytd, and got it to 990Mhz with 1.08v so its pretty decent, but needed 1.12v for 1000Mhz, and I sticked to 990Mhz as I did not want to go above 1.1. Check out the 560ti OCing club here, you will see many MSI Hawks making it to 1000Mhz with less than 1.1v. I think I remembered seeing a 1.03v w/ 1000Mhz.

But honestly, OCing a GPU is a crapshoot, you end up lucky or you dont. Seems like I ended up with a pretty decent one this time.

And if you are really serious about overclocking... 560TI with GPU water block w/ water cooling(duh) with Bios Flash to remove voltage limit.

Will probably get the highest clock speeds by the end, but they come at a price premium. I'd get this one though

2GB, slight OC, reinforcement spine, and I think it is reference PCB if you're into liquid cooling.

Is it significantly better at OC over the gpu listed below? Reason I ask is it's a 40 dollar upgrade.

I personally found I was able to get rather amazing overclocks when I had my 2 MSI GTX 560 Tis (the Twn Frozr II ones). Was able to break 1GHz for the core, just can't remember what I had the memory at...

Basically there is no way to know. The ones that come pre-overclocked are usually higher binned, but the Gigabyte one is pure chance.

I was able to reach 1ghz with 1.11 volt with my EVGA GTX 560Ti DS.
I paid $240 for it and it has lifetime warranty.
I don't think paying for the hawk a $50 prime is worth it, just grab a 570 instead for $30 more.
