Owners and feedback for Overclocking EVGA gtx 580 sc'd 1.5 GB

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got my 2500k stable @ 4.7 ghz @ the moment and I would like to move into the video card area. I have no water cooling its all air. The case I have is Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel. There is crazy airflow inside the case and room temps are always around 70F.

There isn't anything blocking the intake fans in the front either. I removed all of the HD bays because I only have an SSD I made a custom bracket for sitting on the bottom of the case ( I use an external for all of my media.)

My cpu is cooled by a corsair H100 and I made sure when I put the new rig together that there was literally nothing blocking air movement so the inside of the case is spotless.

Anyway on to the question, I would like to push a little bit more out of my card, For those of you that have the same card and good air cooling would you mind sharing some settings used? Or advice in general. I am still pretty new to alot of this stuff and I am getting cpu's figured out but I have not really touched my GPU and I would like to try out some benchmarks once I get 5ghz stable.

Thanks tons ahead of time!

Hmmm, Nobody answering you here.

I have the 580SC but am on water. Not sure if it helps you at all, but I have done quick OC to mine and am at 900Mhz with stock voltage. Haven't even tried to go past that or mess with anything else. I just used Precision and bumped it up slowly to that.

Temps never reach above 46c or so but that doesn't really help you since I am on water.

I would say play with Precision or Afterburner and just slowly increase clock/test/repeat while watching temps. It is much easier to OC GPU in my opinion. And if you are more patient than I am, you should be able to get quite a bit out of that card.
