Undervolting overclocked GPU's. Does it help?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, how we all?

I recently took to overclocking my EVGA GTX 550 Ti for gigs, and I managed to have it nice and stable at 990Mhz @ 1036mV.

Of course, being stable, I'm happy. Stays at a respectable temperature (57C at full load) and doesn't seem to cause glitches.

But, I'm a teeny bit concerned at what I did, meaning, lower the voltage BELOW the standard. At standard clock speeds and voltage, it sits around 951Mhz @ 1112mV, so my undervoltage is rather large.

Please excuse what could be severe ignorance as I try to learn as much as possible. I think I'm doing well.

Anyway, is there any possible negative side-effects? Or is this a rather positive thing to do considering it's overclocked.

I just want some reassurance, which would be appreciated.

Thank you. biggrin.gif

No negative side-effects if the card is stable at those clocks and voltages. You only really have to worry about extreme increases in voltage.
