Overclocking MSI GTX 580 Lightning

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been overclocking my CPU for sometime now, but never have touched my GPU. I was wondering how much to overclock and if anyone had some working settings? I will be using MSI Afterburner and I have the Accelero Xtreme II cooler on my GPU. Right now it is idling around 28C and only hits 46C when using EVGA's OC Scanner, so I know I have some room to work with. thumb.gif

Had my Gigabyte OC card running @ 900MHz with 1.1v (default 797MHz @ 1.0v) . I'm sure you can hit those numbers @ 1.05v with the lightning.
Even heard crazy stories about it going up to 920MHz on stock volts! What a great card thumb.gif
Don't forget to modify your fan profile if you plan on going + 900 range.


Welcome to OCN btw smile.gif
