GTX 560 Ti 448 core OC Club - Page 40

post #391 of 2759
Looking for some help regarding overclocking this card. I'm new to the scene and just completed my first from-scratch build. I've already done a mild overclock on my 2500k and would like to do the same on my MSI TFIII 560 ti 448.

I'm running the Nvidia beta drivers and have installed afterburner. What is a safe (or safe starting point) for a mild overclock at stock voltage? I'm not looking to push it too hard, just want to squeeze a little extra performance out of it while keeping temps reasonable. Any recommendations or experience is appreciated. What would you recommend for stress testing/bench marking?

Also, I noticed in afterburner that you cannot adjust the voltage. Is there a system setting to unlock it?

I'm upgrading from an EVGA GTX 275, and I'm trying to decide which manufacturer to pick for this card. I don't have BF3 yet, so I'd like to buy a card which comes with BF3 free. That winnows it down to the Zotac and the Gigabyte cards on Newegg. For a moderate overclock, and ease of installation with the huge cooler on the gigabyte, which would you guys recommend?

I own the Gigabyte version of this card and I love it. Just make sure your case has good airflow since the card will be blowing air into the case.

Check out this video if you wanna see how the air flows out of the card.

If you look back to some of my earlier posts you'll see it overclocks very well also.

Card is BIOS locked at 1.1v, so you can't possibly hurt the thing (though I wouldn't run it at 1.1v 24/7... try to keep things to 1.05v or under for that). Temps depend on the person; I like to keep mine in the lower 60s, though the 70s are probably fine too.

A good starting point is 850MHz @ 1.00V. Leave the memory untouched until you find your maximum core/shader clock.

You have to enable voltage overclocking; it's in the preferences pane.

Currently the highest score for 560 Ti 448's in SLI.

I've got crappy cards frown.gif They are 1.050v stock!

Can't wait for Nibitor 6.04 to come out and support us!

Is your i5-2500k really clocked at 3.3? I wouldn't think so but I'm curious if you have it at 5 like you said earlier in the thread. Also how stable is the OC and what was your stock voltage? Is your memory very stable at that clock? Mine tends to cause flashes of green in 3dm11 if I have it set to 2200 and I'm attempting to really push my core clock.

Im curious too what I could do to improve my score. When I ran mine through on 980 core I got 6877 for the graphics score and P6931. I'm still relatively new to overclocking (my 8800gtx ran hot enough stock) so I've only just really gotten in to it with this card.

Thanks for the advice NRD and bman! I just ordered the Gigabyte card off Newegg.

Once I get it installed and overclocked I'll put up the stats. thumb.gif

yea its really 5ghz lol,
