Afterburner version 306.97, core voltage going up to +300, what is safe? (gtx 660)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
last time i was overclocking was with a older gpu and a older afterburner, and before the core voltage only went up to +100

but this time, it can go all the way up to +300

mines at +100, but im wondering and curious about how high can it really go? would it be bad to go past +100? how far can i take core voltage? up to +300? has anyone done this?

i'm just trying to figure out how hard i can OC this gpu

my gpu is a GTX 660

I don't think it'll really matter, since you can't push the card past 1.175V anyway.

ah, it turns out +100 wasn't its max.

now to get it to 1.175 volts it needs to be set to +225

thanks tho

All you are changing there is the idle voltage, under load it'll go to 1.175V by itself.
