3d mark score / OC gtx580

That is my 3d mark score at default settings. What is a safe OC to start with on a EVGA GTX 580?

I am using MSI Afterburner.

You should be able to hit 950Mhz Core / 1900 Shader / 2075 Memory with 1.125mV on the card.

I hit a 3DMark11 Score of 7294 combined and the raw graphic score was 7372.

I currently run the card at stock voltage (which varies from card to card) at 1.0880mV and am very stable 24/7 with a 900Mhz Core / 1800 Shader / 2075 Memory. This is a %16% over clock on Core/Shader and a %5 Memory OC.

I've found over clocking the Memory dosen't provide much gains as opposed to make the card less stable. Personally the 1.125mV is the top voltage tweak I'm willing to hit for my own comfort zone.

My 24/7 temps are 41C-42C and full throttle 76C on average most games, though I've reached 84C in intense battles on BF3 and even for Star Wars Old Republic.

You should check out the first page on the NVIDIA GTX 500 Series Owners Club if you haven't already. It's a great page to get an idea on others OC and posted scores which validates. Best club on the OCN boards with such great info for GPU comparison. biggrin.gif

Good luck over clocking and let us know how your doing. If anything come over to the [Official] GTX 580 Overclocking Club to get the most out of your cards with other 580 members. If they haven't seen your post and given advise in this thread come join us there. thumb.gif

Since you have a vanilla GTX580, you might have to raise your voltage if you want to surpass speeds of 850MHz. I was able to hit this on stock volts (1.088vmv) but as always YMMV. Most 580's can hit 850MHz and beyond without a problem.
