GTX 460 SE Overclocking question - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Fermi luckily can overclock fairly well, is that your max clock you could achieve with the card?

Good progress Sarah. You could likely shoot for 860Mhz on the core at 1.025v and still be in the safe zone. Of course watch temps smile.gif

There might be additional headroom, but if it were my card I'd be perfectly happy right there. It should provide a good boost in performance and not thrash your card too bad.

p.s. No need to run Kombuster that long. And in fact I wouldn't recommend it. 20 - 30 minutes is sufficient and then verify via some gaming on your favorite title.

Also, I wanted to mention the OCCT GPU test again. It is very effective at uncovering instability.

Was it Kombuster or OCCT that was kind of weary for burning out cards?

Furmark specifically, but Kombuster is based on the same platform. Hence my recommendation not to run it for four hours smile.gif Even if it is "sanctioned" by MSI.

Right, I remember a few stories about that with the 480 unless it was nonreference it usually wasnt a good idea.

Folding@Home is the test I like to use

FAH is a good alternative for sure.

Well, I am happy with my 840MHz and I don't wanna push it further because my 100% load temps are 70-73ÂșC, I'll go with this card till I upgrade to 800 or HD 9000, thanks for the help.

Those are pretty reasonable temps for a stock cooler, I kind of want to get 460 SLI again but then again I would like for anything other than what I have at the moment
