If i change the voltage the only thing it does is making more heat ?
So the steps forward would be. Set the voltage. Find maxclock where its stable.
And then add more voltage and find where its stable to i find a good place to keep it ? or even go further.
Am i right ? or total wrong ?
Fill out your sig rig. No one knows what hardware you have.
I like to find max core clock at stock voltage and then go from there.
You're going to have to do some reading to get the process sorted, but here's the quick version.
1) Decide what BIOS you're going to use.
2) If you're going to use a custom BIOS, flash it to the LN2 BIOS slot. There are detailed flashing instructions and tools all over the place, including in the OP.
3) Use Afterburner or Precision X to overclock the core. Benchmark with Heaven, Valley, Firestrike, games. See how far you can get at stock volts. Keep an eye on core and VRM temps with GPU-Z / HWInfo / AB / Precision X.
4) Keep overclocking the core. You can unlock voltage control in AB or Precision X up to 1.212v. To go further than that you need the Classified Voltage Tuner Controller tool.
5) Up the voltage a little and see how far the core goes. Repeat this until you've gotten as high as you want to go. On air you are going to be limited by temperature.
6) After you're done with the core, you can start OCing your memory. With a Classified you either have Hynix or Samung. You can check the memory type with GPU-Z or Nvidia Inspector by looking in the memory type box / hovering your mouse over memory type.
