How much should you be able to OC reference 780?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Im wondering i just built my first pc i only have reference 780 card i was told not to water cool it because it would not make difference with reference card apparently because of voltage on 780 reference i would not get a super high OC liquid would allow. My i7-4930K is liqud cooled and OC to 4.1 ghz.

Water cooling would actually hep your OC a ton. That's assuming that you're willing to flash your card's bios to a custom one (takes about 2 minutes) and unlocking 1.3v in afterburner (few lines in the command prompt and a tweak to a file).

Assuming you're willing to do those you can probably go ~1.25v on air and 1.35v on water. On air that will probably yield anywhere from 1225 to 1300MHz and on water probably 1275 to 1375mhz....Depends on the card.

If you want to OC with the stock BIOS and with completely stock afterburner you can expect close to 1200MHz.

Thanks for post. I spent so much on cpu 600$ alone it was. I prob should got a better 780 but meh i think i should be good with just the air cooling that is default.

Reason i got such good cpu is i stream and do other none gaming things also i got 32g of ram that is also prob little over kill but i do some editing on my pc wanted it be good for non gaming also.

Ill prob just wait till i upgrade my gpu 2 or 3 years down the road and get better gpu and water cool it.

a GTX 780 even with light oc im guessing can play anything on 1080p any way right now.

If you need good guides and help overclocking, flashing bioses and unlocking MSI afterburner go check out the GTX 780 owners club in our Nvidia section. Tons of good info there in the OP and the members are helpful.

And 780 will kick ass for years to come, good CPU for streaming is a good choice thumb.gif

Yup im pretty sure 780 should last a long while. I could even sli it later on.
