MSI Hawk GeForce GTX 560 Ti Cooling - Page 2

Yes it is safe to use, it does a very good job of accurately simulating the load of a very stressful real game so your settings would be safe to test out in a game they should be safe to test out in Heaven (i.e. you are not using crazy voltages like 1.500v on air.). I would max out everything so turn tesselation, AA, and AF to max, I think the other settings should be fine at default.

Ran Heaven for around 20 minutes and the max temp I got from my videocard (using HWMonitor Pro) is 76°C. Am I good? How much overclocking room do I have?

Leave the same voltage and keep bumping up the Core MHz by 10MHz. So say you ran heaven right now @ 850MHz and it passed for 20minutes, then bump it up to 860MHz and try again. It'll crash probably within 5 minutes if its unstable. Once the benchmark crashed, the driver will crash and the program will close, bump it down 10MHz and that's your stable.

Oh ok. No need to bump up shaders and memory? So my voltage is pretty much the highest already for my temps?

Your shader goes up automatically when you increase your core. You can bump up your memory if you want. What is it stock? 2100? My 560 could take 2300. I would get about a 1fps increase by bumping up memory so its not a huge deal... Usually a 10-15% increase in memory clock is the norm.

I don't bother with memory overclocking as it's a long drawn out process to actually verify that you are getting a performance increase and not tripping the error correction code (ECC) of the memory even though it appears stable and brings very little gain. When stability testing in Heaven also look out for colored flash of light that look kinda like sun rays but in any place and color as a sign of instability as well. With those temperatures you can probably increase voltages a little bit but I wouldn't want to go over 85C.

Ok. All of this overclocking can be done and are better to be done with MSI Afterburner, yes?
