core voltage 1.050 v
im using MSI afterburner to overclock the gpu. i restart the computer when i apply changes, just to be safe.
i have tested the gpu at both stock and overclocked speeds using OCCT and the results are fairly similar: it passes most of the time, but it frequently errors are reported. so maybe it could be a hardware issue with my graphics card?
could my overclocking over the course of just 2 days have damaged the gpu? the temps have gotten up to 80 degrese celcius at a few points so maybe heat damage?
the issue is, well, im getting bluescreens now. im not sure if a gpu issue could even cause a bluescreen, but eitherway the reliability of the machine has fallen. so my questions are this:
could a crappy overclock cause a BSoD?
is the voltage not quite right?
should i use a different program to test?
is there anything obvious im missing?
i have seen many cases of sucsessful overclocks with the same card at much higher speeds so i must be doing something wrong here.
