New to Nvidia-GTX 650ti

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've switched over from the Radeon 6770 t this card. I've got the zotac version of the card. I've managed to overclock using MSI Afterburner but the power limit is greyed out. How can I unlock the power limit as I want to take it further. These are my max stable clocks with voltage unlock. Haven't tried to go higher on the memory though.

Stock clocks are 941/1350 Mhz
This is my 3D Mark 11 Graphics score only.

How does it look so far? Any suggestions?

In your MSI Afterburner try going to settings and there is a check-box to unlock voltage control. I could be wrong since this is how it works for my 500 series card.

I did that but that only unlocked the voltage and not the power limit? Why do Nvidia Cards throttle? And what's this whole power limit thing about? Does it increase the overclocks?

Ive never owned a 600 series card but im pretty sure the OCing for them is as easy as it gets. From the videos Ive seen all that you do is set your power target higher(volatage limit) then you set your temp target(max temp you want your GPU to run). Once you do that you can raise your clocks until you have your max stable clock. I could be wrong but Im pretty sure its as simple as that for the 600 series. Maybe try using different OC software like in this video. Youtube
