try it. I think if you stable in FarCry 3 (only for core mhz) then test your memory with Euro Truck Simulator 2. If those works for hours without crash , artifacts , freeze. Then you good to go.
This is what I do ofc. I still use unigine heaven and valley but I do not trust them
Gaming is what overclock is for. So testing those settings on game will be more fun like derfer said and will be more accurate.
IMPORTANT EDIT! I was talking about GPU core in games with GPU Boost 2.0 Do not set your mhz by GPU-Z. If you wanna set clocks by looking GPU-Z you may harm your gpu by going too far immediately. Best you'll see 1200mhz which is a great point (In Gpu-Z) . Refence card got 980mhz +200 is the most likely card can get. So try 15 mhz increase but start from 1050
My point is when you see your clock 1160 in Gpu-z your actual clock in game is over 1280 so be careful with them.
I never heard or used GPU boost 2.0 before.
Do I have to use that pogram?
And what about my screenshot? If I'm suppose to overclock with the latest MSI afterburner beta?
I have crysis 1 and metra 2033. I think that should be enough, to test overclock stability?
