Best overclock software for r280x

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Attempting to overclock my R280x's but would like some advice on software/procedure before I go ahead, been out of the overclocking game a long time.

I have MSI Afterburner but not sure where to start in terms of voltage, power limit, clock speeds, etc.

Thks in advance.

I prefer to use Msi Afterburner for every card out.
Just put that volt and powerlimit to the max, you have Windforce so temperature should be fine.
Then just try to raise core clock. What I usually do is raise it in steps of 50 in the start until the game/benchmark crashes almost instant, then work my way down from that in steps of 10 or 20.

For CPU use BIOS.


FYI, Gigabyte have locked voltage, so you will not be able to overclock much more than 1100/1500.
Maybe if you use latest BIOS and hack it.
