Overclocking GPU causes Games to Stop Responding

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Strange issue when ever I put any overclock on my MSI Twin Frozr GTX 680 4GB even adding 30mhz to the core when running up battlefield 4 or Titanfall ill get 5 to 10 minutes in and it will stop responding taking off the overclock will allow the games to run fine.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Do I need to add more voltage to the card perhaps?

You reached the overclocking limits of that video card at the current voltage. You might need to overvolt it for further overclocking. Since you have 680 TF III I assume the card is already clocked to the moon at stock settings, so that is expected TBH to not have much headroom anymore.

Any idea of a safe over voltage for this card it’s just I have seen a couple of written reviews online where people were able to get a good 1200mhz boost clock out of the card simply by putting the power limit to 132 in afterburner.

I was able to run Battlefield 3 with a 40mhz core clock and + 500mhz on the memory and it ran like a dream it just seems to be these latest titles maybe taking more advantage of the card.

Any tips or help on this would be much appreciated guys.

So I flashed my bios last night and was able to push the voltage further but I still couldn't get anymore out of the card so I flashed it back to stock and tried once more so I am getting 40+ on the core and 300+ on the mem with 132 power limit with +100mV so its something I suppose.

Are you checking the max voltage, gpu core with sensor, or just seeing if it runs?
