So since i heard that gtx560 runs cooler ,eats less power was thinking it could overclock better also
Why you run the card at that low voltage? That is expected TBH to not get a decent OC, FYI 1.025mV was my GTX 470 stock voltage
My old EVGA GTX 470 was a bit of a dud too. can't get much above 775 MHz at 1.088mV.
I flashed the cards BIOS and unlocked the voltage to 1.138mV . Now I can get 800 MHz @ 1.125mV just for benching and fun
But no. GTX 560 is a side-grade even for your 700 MHz card.
Also I would run the memory on stock settings again. since it is going to lower you max stable core clock and Fermi is not bandwidth starved like Kepler.
Keep the memory on stock and try to find your best core overclock.

and it only needs one 6 pin power connector and a 450 watt psu.
He is talking about a GTX 560 non-Ti. The non-Ti doesn't compete with GTX 470 when overclocked. GTX 460 (cfc same as GTX 560) at 1.0 GHz is still slower than a GTX 470 at 750 MHz.Edited by HeadlessKnight - 9/13/12 at 7:50am
