best overclocking guide?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need some help understanding some fundamentals for overclocking, i have a few questions and ive been looking for a good up to date overclocking guide, i was reading this one but the writer was using an older 5000 series gpu for it. Wondering if same rules apply for overclocking ( increased memory wont need added voltage, and decreasing core needs less voltage?)

- i just want to increase memory and according to the article, you dont need to increase core voltage for memory.
- then i want to decrease core clock but now im confused. If i increase memory clock a bit and it is stable, what if i decrease core clock? since a stable memory clock wont need added voltage and decreasing core clock, would i have to decrease the voltage?

- the article states that increased core clock usually needs added voltage, so what if the voltage remains the same with decreased core clock from stock, is it a safer bet to decrease voltage?

I didn't read the article you posted but I saw that he's using Afterburner so to answer your question, yes, overclocking is still the same, basic GPU overclocking:
1. Google what others were able to achieve on your GPU (make sure you're looking at air cooling results if you have air cooling)
2. Install after burner and start bumping the memory and core clock while having kombuster open and benching
3. Stop when the card crashes and record your results
4. Restart with a tad higher voltage
5. DO NOT CRANK THE VOLTAGE TO MAX
6. Enjoy
