Hello all, just built a new pc and looking to OC the card.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I was looking for guidance on Overclocking my new GTX 780 SC/ACX and stumbled upon this site. New build consists of

i7-4770k @ 4.2ghz
16g DDR3 Ram
2tb Western Digital Black (new line)
EVGA 780 SC/ACX
EVGA 80+ Bronze 750watt PSU
Thermaltake VL8000 Case

I have a couple of questions though. I was just wondering what some of the overclocks people have achieved on this card. I was messing with Precision X and seemed to have gotten the card at +100core +500mem without noticing any Artifacts in Heaven set to max at 1080p and 8xAA. Got a score of 1600 and 60fps without touching the Voltage. However, after playing Planetside 2 for awhile, the game did freeze a couple times so I lowered it back to stock. I was then playing EverQuest Next Landmark on stock settings this morning and the drivers crashed. So im not sure whats going on.

I was almost tempted to return and exhange the 780 SC for the 780 Classy, but wasnt sure if the increase in price is worth it.

Thanks for reading.

Welcome, check out the GTX 780 Owners club for any 780 related questions (there is also a very good over clocking guide in there)

And just because your graphics card is bench stable does not mean that it is game stable. Keep working to make it game stable and keep a close eye on your temps!

Thank you, that's the thing though. It never even reaches 70c.

Okay, thats good. Just keep in mind that the VRM's on your card will run much warmer than the core.

I'm going to say this is really nice config !! smile.gif


what's the costing level of this combination, is it high low or in the middle?

I paid about $1400 for everything at Micro center. T exchanged the SC for a Classy earlier for $30 more.
