GTX 470 Overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 46
Thread Starter 
Checked my brothers 6950, and it's at 1250 memory clock, wierd, why's it so low? I just put my memory clock to 1250, and now gonna try to raise the roof on the core, see if it'll do anything good.. Also, when my PC artifacts, do I shut it off manually, or wait till it shuts off itself, or re-fixes?

AMD clocks nothing like Nvidia

A 6950 is an AMD card, totally different architecture and brand so it's not relevant to the nV card.
You do need some memory speed otherwise it will bottleneck and slow the card, nvidia chose 1675 as stock because at that speed it was most likely not hindering or helping the the performance.

When it crashes, try to close the program or hit alt+control+del and close it.

If you want more speed, you can mod the voltage via a few programs (can't remember which), but your going to need something other than stock cooling. You might be able to push 1.1v though that card and still have the stock cooler cool it but I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm using an Antec 620, and I was ready and about to ask if I was able to go over 1.087! Mind telling me the program that I need to hop over the 1.087 boat?

By the way, my temps are:
28-30C on idle (Without any videos playing)
55-58 while benching on kombuster / others

MSI AB voltage unlock and Nvidia Inspector will do it I believe.
All the details are right here http://www.overclock.net/t/781924/gtx460-1-087v-voltage-cap-unlock/70

Be careful because too much voltage has nothing to do with too much heat. Too much voltage can kill alone.

Before you consider going over 1.087v how have you cooled your VRMs?

That's what I was asking others, and they said just don't touch it, so I didn't. Is that a bad thing?

I wouldn't touch it up to 1.087v but after that you may want individual VRM h-sinks to be safe.
Is your board naked? You might just want to get heatsinks for them anyway.

I couldn't tell you specifically though, I've only volted to 1.087.

So on 1.087 V's without heatsinks, is that bad for me? And my board is somewhat full, but I can still fit a good amount. And i'll start searching for VRM heatsinks. Is there a certain brand I should be staring at particularly?
