Alrighty gentlemen, I'll report back with where I end up!

This is my card.

Oh, and how high should memory clock be going?

Approximately twice as high as your core clock.

LOL I was just pulling your leg, it's exactly double the core clock, ZOMG I'm so funny! lachen.gif

No but seriously on the Fermi architecture the shader clock is always locked to two times the core clock.

Oh man...I'm an idiot. I meant memory. This is why I shouldn't be doing this when I first wake up lol.

I don't bother OCing memory on Fermi because of how little difference it makes to performance as well as how difficult it is to actually ascertain stability. The VRAM on both of our cards has error correcting code (ECC) which means that it typically will not shows instability errors in the expected manner of artifacts which are easy to spot, but will instead fix them itself but at the cost of performance. So to test stability of the ECC VRAM you need to get multiple baselines of benchmarks at stock memory speed then repeat each of those benchmarks every time you increase the speed and you need to see a improvement in the scores, when you start to see scores falling instead of rising that will be the only indication you've reached instability of the VRAM in that specific benchmark. Basically it's a whole lot of work where you' might not even be 100% positive it's actually stable for not much gain, and I've never felt it's worth the trouble.

The bolded OC is what I'll be using as my 24/7 OC. I don't really do competitive overclocking, so that's good enough for me. A 50MHz increase on my core clock with the same or lower idle and load temps. This card seems to like 1.038V. Anything higher is just pushing it.

What have you been using to test stability? If it's something like OCCT, kombuster, or Furmark those are poor tests for the 500 series because of the fact that the clocks will throttle down to 405MHz intermittently in those tests despite what MSI AB or GPU-z may be telling you. Source 1, source 2.

I'd recommend multiple tests to determine stability, for example Unigine Heaven, 3d Mark, and multiple games.

I use EVGA OC Scanner X. It runs on full load. Obviously it won't detect all artifacts, so I just play GPU intensive games to determine how stable the OC truly is. But if it's getting artifacts in OC Scanner X, I rule it out immediately.

I have the same card, MSI version, modded with the Antec 620. I've been running 950/2100 for a couple weeks now at +150mV. I pretty much only play BF3 at 1080, mostly high settings, capped at 80fps, and my temps are never above 47*. I ran Heaven at maxed out for an hour without any issues.

My card has a nice heat spreader covering the ram and the vram, so of course I left that on. I made a bracket, like dwood's, that holds a 90mm fan and dumps right onto the vrams. In a week I'll be adding 14mm cooper heat sinks onto the heat speader right over the vrams.
