Overclocking a GTX980 Ti stock frequency of 200MHz on core.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I never overclocked a video card before and I would like starting overcloking my GTX980 Ti SLI.

For starting I'm in with "only" 200MHz more.
To do this, I opened EVGA Precision and raised the bar of the "GPU Clock Offset" by 200MHz.

All I have done is this and now the GPUs seems to run at 200MHz more (1400MHz max more or less), I played Crysis 3 and The Witcher 3 in 4k Using DSR no problem for hours.

I'm not interested in getting more than 200MHz at the moment, and please answer all the following questions, please.

1) Could I say that this is a stable overclock?

2) Should I adjust some more parameters to get a better overclock?

3) Is there a simple way to flash the "+200MHz" mod directly in bios just to not start EVGA precision every time?

Thanks

1) If you aren't getting and game crashes, BSODs, artifacts (usually like stretched triangles, or "snow" as people call them) or blocks of colours you're stable.

2) You can only go down in core/memory speed for stability or up in voltage, and seeing you're stable you shouldn't change anything.

3) You can, but you need to mod the BIOS and flash it which is not recommended just for that fact. MSI afterburner doesn't use a lot of resources.

Though I am interested to hear your memory offset... If you want a quick and dirty OC on memory most cards can do +200-300MHz stable.

Hoped this helped!
