The GTS 450 isn't so bad thread

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The GTS 450 is a great overclocker. and can actually perform(as i see) close to my stock GTX 460 768mb i used to own.

Currently overclocked to 1000core/2345mem stable at 1.2v max temp during stress is 67c

I would try for more but im maxed on afterburner for memory. and afterburner wont set 1100core... itll only go to 1000 on the monitor

here's the validation http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/agkpa/

I have one in one of my rigs. I like it. My kids all play on the machine it is in and none of them ever complain about the graphics. It ran Dead Space 2 respectably.

You have quite the clocker there, I couldnt get mine past 998 T.T but yes it plays Planet Side 2, Dead Space 2 and otehr games quite well. I was actually interested in doing SLI at one point but I had sold my system later I may grab a low profile care for it though later lol

I had three, due to my stupidity i fried one (forgot to connect the fan then started BOINCing on it...) but the last two i have are running like champs.

They play nicely on SLI 925MHz core and 2050 MHz VRAM with the stock cooler and factory BIOS; then i got them under water, changed the BIOS with one with modded volts, and ran @ 1070 MHz core and 2100 MHz VRAM on SLI. My best one even achieved 1100 MHz core.



The reason i upgraded them was BOINC, as they handled everything i threw at them and more.. They still crunch WU's and game a bit on my HTPC, but i got bitten by the upgrade bug.

This is the normal speed i had them while under water:

On air, i was a bit more conservative. All i did was lower the core clock to 925 MHz though.
