Hello

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. Just found this forum after buying a new PC and getting interested in overclocking. Seems like a great community!
I wonder if anyone could point me to a good FAQ on overclocking my GPU. I have an MSI 580 Lightning. I've tried using kombustor and afterburner, but it seems as soon as I move away from stock core voltage, I get lower scores in kombustor.

Welcome to OCN! You, my friend, have the Ferrari of 580s, so overclocking will be a pleasure. The 580 overclocking club is a great resource, both for getting started (see first post in thread) and to ask questions and post progress. Afterburner is generally accepted as the most useful and intuitive overclocking utility, so you're on the right track. Make sure you're using the latest beta build (can be found on the afterburner download page), which it sounds like you are any way. Also, don't bother with Kombusor. More practical benchmarking tools are available and plentiful (see 580 OC club). Good luck!

Welcome to the house of fun!

Kombuster and OCCT wont work with 580s. The cards have built in power draw limiters. Try Heaven or 3Dmark 11 thumb.gif
