What steps can I take to get the best possible OC for stable gaming? What are some things I should do within MSI Afterburner to get things started? I've already got my unlocked voltage control ready (durrr
) So I just need to know what I've gotta do to get this OC ball rollin'!
Thanks in advanced!
Well I would see how you do at +93mv before going beyond that. Both of my 2 that only did 1330mhz-1340mhz with +93mv absolutely hated any more voltage, but the one that did 1430mhz actually took more voltage quite well.
OC'ing should be relatively similar to the 7970. Find your max core with a particular voltage, then bump it up for more mhz. Or just skip right to +93mv and see what the card can really do
(on the LN2 BIOS of course). Heaven should give you a decent idea of what you can expect to be stable in most games.
But if you're used to OC'ing the 7970, then I must warn you... When looking at the graph in Afterburner showing your temps- it's not an error, they really are that low Edited by dph314 - 8/27/12 at 10:41pm
