Max safest memory clock for 660 ti? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Safe and recommended. The 660 Ti is one of the few cards that benefits as much from memory as a core clock. It's bandwidth starved.

Yes those were my clock speeds. Not my voltages.

There are NO 660ti models wherein you can bump your core voltage to an unsafe level. In fact, they really don't have 'voltage control' in the traditional sense of the word.

If your card is stable and not overheating, there's no reason to not overclock the core and memory as far as they'll go ... OC'ing alone cannot damage your card, only voltage can. And like I say, 660ti's don't even have voltage control, let alone 'unsafe' voltage options thumb.gif

So, on kepler cards, you can't even increase the voltage at all? It's locked at the level they come with? I have a 660 Ti and haven't messed around with it yet hehe biggrin.gif.

I can definitely change my voltages, look

Yes, but if you observe the actual real-time graphs you'll almost certainly find it doesn't actually do anything ... Even if it does, 1.175V is the max voltage for your card no matter what you do, and that level can be attained w/o you touching the voltage slider ... it's the default voltage cap, and 100% safe wink.gif

When I had the core voltage slider at +0 I would crash in games. But when I put it at +100, I didnt crash anymore.

That's a very small increase. I thought you meant you had added 595mv, not 50mv.
