Asus GTX680 4GB Overclock Questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I've just started folding and I'm wanting to get the most out of my card to help with the cause. I normally have my card clocked at 1100Mhz. I've pushed it to 1200Mhz and the card is running at 1228Mhz at the moment. I do not have alot of experience overclocking GPU's and I'm wanting to make sure I don't do any damage to the card, well because it's expensive lol. I would just like some opinions on what you as experience GPU overclockers would push this card to. I've added some pics as well to show where I'm at now. Thanks for the help guys/gals!






Edit: I'm actually thinking about dropping it down a little, because now that I'm looking at it that 1200mhz clock is pushing my temps up to ~70C and that's with a case temp of 75F, seems to be getting too high for my blood.

Just keep you temps below 80°C on the core and you should be fine, you could get let off using higher voltages. Asus cards are built like tanks, it will take a lot to damage the card.

Dont use the Asus GPU Tweak its not very good and cause your PC to crash or freeze

Use MSI Afterburner that has far less problems and can remember your overclock

I know firsthand i had nothing but problems with Asus GPU Tweak

My friend who bought my old Asus GTX 680 CU II has the same problems
