How much to OC GTX 580 (Details included)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to know how much it is safe to OC my GTX 580 (ASUS DCII model) without any specific GPU cooling. Only extra cooling in system is the HYPER 212 EVO. Rest of my system can be seen in sig. I want to know how much I can OC while keeping the card relatively cool and very quiet (as of now my build is silent). I don't expect to reach 1GHZ like some, but hoping at least 850-920mHz. Currently stock clocks @782mHz.

Rig in sig. Thanks for any help. Will add more detail if required.

EDIT: For me it seems my old rig "Coming Soon" is in the sig, but on my profile the only available one is my "Current rig". I don't know how long it will take to update on the thread since I just updated the build on OCNet.

EDIT2: Until it updates, current rig is:
CPU: 2600k
Motherboard: Asus P8z68-v-GEN3
GPU: ASUS GTX 580 DCII
RAM: Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 (16GB)
HDD: Hitachi 0F12115 2TB
SSD: Corsair CSSD 120GB
Cooler: Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
OS: Windows 7 Professional OEM
Monitor: Asus VE247H 23.6"
Keyboard: Razer Lycosa Black
Power: Antec HCP-850 850W
Case: HAF 932 Advanced

just experiment yourself. I bet you can get to 850 easily.

Any advice as to what I should aim to keep the temps at when OCing? (Idling and on load).

anything under like 95c is considered safe..

i tend to try to stay under 85 though.
