Overclocking a GTX560

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi, I've recently tried to get everything I could out of my Q8400 with a help from you guys..

well I managed to get a Xeon+board+RAM for a really, really good price so from now, the only thing holding me back is my GPU in newer games.

I have a GTX560 Phantom, which runs at 822MHz@core stock, and before I'm able to afford a suitable graphics card, I'd like to overclock this one. I changed the thermal compound and the load temperatures dropped by about 5°C, about 82°C before and 76-77°C now.

my current OC seems to be stable at 1.025 core voltage (0.987 stock) and 955MHz. the increase seems to be noticable, but the temperatures raised to about 86°C in Kombustor. are these safe?
also, do you think my PSU is able to handle that/handle a new card? I have a Seasonic SS-500ET-F3

answers from you are much appreciated. thank you

Your 560 requires 14A(OC will obviously raise it a little) on the 12V rail and it looks like you have 34A on the 12v rail. I would base safe temps off in game temps not kombuster, they will be lower in games. If I were you I would feel good about your temps and your PSU. 2cents.gif

Thank you, I haven't had much time this week, but now I'm running on 972MHz core and 1.075V, gives me about 88-89°C in games. Is it still considered safe? It is almost a 20% overclock from stock frequency, so...
