Question OCing in Afterburner

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
In Afterburner, there's a slider for Core Voltage and lets you add +12mV. How much does it really add? Also will this hurt the GPU?

It will probably run alittle bit hotter and give no performance improve because you didn't change the clock speed of the gpu.

here is how to overclock your gpu:

I know how to OC a GPU. As you can see in my sig i already have my GTX 770 oced.

I just wanna know the advantage/disadvantages of using the Core Voltage slider in Afterburner.

oh sorry :/
the advantage of using higher core voltage is higher clock speeds
the disadvantages are more heat and more power consumption and higher chance of system instablity

The cards BIOS will probably, like mine, limit your voltage to 1.175 unless you find and flash a custom BIOS. Even if you increase the voltage slider all the way to max you will not exceed 1.175.

Ok but how much does it really add when you put it to +12mV?

No prob. Do you think messing with the Core Voltage slider will hurt a GPU?

No, if it could we would see endless threads on "MSI Afterburner killed my GPU".
