Overclocking tips for an Asus 780 ti OC Direct CUII

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm a bit of a overclocking noob, so please excuse me if I'm asking stupid questions.

I'd like to overclock my Asus 780 ti OC Direct CUII. Now having looked at the screenshots of the Asus GPU Tweak it looks like I can just increase the boost speed but not the core? Is that right?
I'm asking as the Asus core speed is factory overclock quite a bit lower than the other factory overclocked cards (EVGA, Gigabyte etc).

And I guess this is difficult to answer but does anyone have tips on how much I should try increasing the boost and voltages? Should I leave the volts to automatically increase as I increase the boost?

I'm looking to o/c for reliable gaming, not really for pushing the absolute limits/benchmarking etc.

It going in a mid tower with very good airflow if that helps.

You won't be able to adjust the voltage much with a stock bios.

I would trying adding 50 to the core and testing things out. That should place you in the mid 1100 range and should be easily doable for that card.

I also suggest ditching gpu tweak and download evga precision which will allow you to set a custom fan profile and also add an onscreen display to monitor your clocks.

Great, thanks. Do you think I should also increase the boost speed as well as the core?

Boost and core are the same thing.

Make sure your power target is also adjusted to allow for more power for the OC.

Thanks again for the reply.
I don't understand regarding the core and boost speeds being the same. I thought the card had a certain core speed then a higher boost speed? I'm not saying you're wrong, I just don't understand.

We might be thinking of it differently because of the gpu tweak tool.

But the way it works regardless of what the Asus tool says is we set the base core clock speed and the card decides if, when and how much to boost.
