560 TI overclocking is it worth it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a MSI 560 TI twin frozr II video card and was wondering if it is worth it to overclock this card? I never overclocked a GPU before.

Would I see some big increases in FPS? If so could someone please link me some guides or tips on overclocking?

There are a lot of new games coming out such as guild wars 2 and diablo 3 and I am worried that I won't be able to max those games out. I kind of regret buying this card back in December with the new generation of cards coming out, but hopefully with overclocking it would be worth it to keep this card.

Well over clocking will correspond with a raise in fps - I.e. a 10 -15% over clock will generally give you a 10 - 15% raise in fps

I don't see any reason you wouldn't overclock your gpu just make sure to go slowly and do lots of testing, you will want to use a program such as Msi afterburner , plenty of guides out there, just use the search button

Absolutely worth it!

The Gtx 560 Ti is a great over clocker.

Grab yourself Afterburner, check the box to allow voltage unlock.

Dont worry about OCing your memory clocks just yet. Wait until you have a stable core / shader clocks first.

Manually set your fans to 100% when OCing. Once you get the OC you want, make up a custom fan profile.

At stock volts, increase your core clock to the next notch, your shader clock will move with it. Click on Apply.

Run Heaven and 3d mark11 to check for stablity, It should be okay at this stage.

Keep raising the core clock and repeat above until your card is not stable any more.

Now, raise the volts to the next notch, rinse and repeat.

You should be able to either approach or reach 1000 / 2000 on a decent voltage. I wouldnt go past 1.15v thought. it tends to because unstable and gets too hot.

What your temps as you go. Anythng less than 80c is acceptable. I use to aim for mid 70s
