If no crash then its your OC. Also, you can go ahead and max your power target bar, don't know if it'll help any.

Yea I don't get any crashes with everything at default. It seems that the card can handle a mild OC, but so far nothing drastic.

Would OV'ing get me any more fps? I'm pretty new to all this.

What is the 1198mhz boost that the card advertises?

So I tested it out, and the core clock is what is causing the crashes. If it's turned up too high, then it crashes. The memory clock didn't have any noticeable difference at +300.

+30-35 seems to be the most stable target for the core clock

You can try a modded bios for higher voltage to get a higher oc on the core, it may help you, it didn't help me though. I'm guessing that the 1198 boost you are referring to is what MSI states the card will boost to under load.
I'm guessing, and this is pure speculation so someone please correct me if I'm wrong, that if a card is already a poopy oc'er that the added voltage won't help in any further oc'ing, and if a card is a strong oc'er then the voltage mod will be useful. Again, just a guess.

I just wish I knew if the card was a bad OC'er. Does what I told you point toward it being so?

When i had my 660ti i modded my bios and the extra voltage gave me about +30 more on the core clock. Myabe a extra 1 or 2 fps is all. It only really helped when i benched the card. No need in doing the modded bios. Do you have your cpu oc'd? If not, you need to get that 2500k running to about 4.5. That doe help in some of the games.

I would personally say that a card that won't oc very far, as low as yours does, or even my top card, are indeed crappy oc'ers. Is it a reason to return the card? Entirely up to the individual. You may or may not get a better card in return, you still have to pay shipping, and you have time away from your toy. I kept my card, so far I have gone +50 on the core, and +300 mem. It tops out at 1241mhz at the moment, while my second card is much much higher, but such is life, right?

I guess I should just be happy with what I have (thinly veiled disguise for laziness tongue.gif)
