OVERCLOCK THE GTX 760
The first you have to do is to download Furmark 1.11.0.
After installing it, run a 400 x 300 window ( i found out that this size and anti-aliasing settings are closest to real max stress gpu have to deal in gaming) with 8MSAA and check what your GPU can boost in stock clocks. Use the GPU-Z to monitor the realtime max boost clocks (in my case, boost 2.0 is 1215-1137=78Mhz (6*13Mhz)).
Now with the help of MSI Afterburner (latest beta suggested) or EVGA precision tools you can overclock the core or the memories.
In order to find your GPU's max OC potentials, set fan speed to its max, and perform 5' furmark burn-in tests for each step of core or memory overclock you have applied.
Set core Voltage to +12mV (max voltage our GPU can get).
Set power limit to 110-115% (so the temp limit will be over 85-90°C).
Set Core clock +13Mhz and memory clock leave it at its stock clocks.
Perform this +13Mhz core clock steps until GPU can not pass a 5' furmark burn-in test. Set core clock back to the last stable +13Mhz step you have applied.
Overclock the memory clock with steps of +50Mhz.
Do this for as long times needed until furmark burn-in test can not be completed.
Set Memory clocks to latest furmark passed clocks.
Now run a unigine valley or heaven benchmark for two times in benchmark mode, repeat the second benchmark loop immediately after first finishes.
IF your GPU can finish these unigine bench tests, congratulations you have found the MAX stable oc of your gpu! If not set core clock frequency one step back (-13Mhz) and try again. Repeat this step until you can pass the benchmark twice without problem.
You may now set fan speed accordingly if you like.
OFC i am not responsible if something goes wrong with your GPU, your PC, your life or anything else biggrin.gif
