Since BF3 is coming out tomorrow, skimmed through the benchmarks and I will need to squeeze every ounce of power the card has. Right now I have it on stock volts with a slight OC (850Mhz/2100Mhz)
1. So whats around the OC on the core clock with volts that arent crazy high? So I can just go from there and then test for stability and downclock if its not stable.
2. Do I just increase the voltage of the Coreclock? I am new to the 3 types of voltage control.
3. Will I see improvements if I OC the memory?
Reps for inputs
2) For your first OC, i'd say stick to 1.1V and under. Thats roughly +100 in ab. Leave memory at 2100 until all other settings are stable, oc'ing the RAM does not make a big difference. Yes, only concern yourself with voltage of the GPU for now.
3) Start in 10 mhz increments and see what you can get. The best stability programs are furmark, and heaven dx11. Actually heaven is better....run it for about 30 minutes to test stability. If you find say, 925 stable then you can bump it up and run heaven again to test stability again. If you're not stable, you will see artifacts or flickering during the test...if that happens either up the voltage (within reason, be careful) or lower your speed.
Repeat this until you find your sweetspot. GPU clock makes the biggest difference, don't concern yourself with memory so much. +rep if helped
