is my gtx 970 over clock settings fine ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
so guys i have come a long way today i overclocked my non g1 gaming gigabyte gtx 970 without the backplate and achieved the perfect over clock settings and my fps have increased a little and i have played games such as GTA V, Witcher 3 and AC unity and there were no artifacts what so ever, and my furmark scored has increased too,my temperatures were all less than 80 C and i have a 1080p resolution, what my question is that will my new OC settings fry or cause my card harm, and know this i have no intention to further increase the OC settings of my gpu card. please i would really appreciate someone who can tell me will these settings cause my card harm and i plan on selling it and buying the 980 in a month or so, so i used msi after burner and gpuz my settings are ( have also upload a screenshot of my GPUz and MSI after burner settings) , im sorry if this is not the right place on the forums to ask these questions im new here

Core Clock=+150
Memory Clock=+200
Power Limit=105%

On a stock bios, you really can't do much damage using AB. The card has built in power and temperature throttling. Your screen shot doesn't really tell us what your final clocks are. If you open the graphs in AB or GPUz and run firestrike or valley, it will show you the clocks you are hitting plus some other helpful graphs. It will also tell you if you are throttling and why. People have been getting around 1500 core and 8000 memory clocks with some minor bios changes. My current clocks are in my sig rig.

Thank you for your help, as you said i turned on the sensors on GPU-Z and set the targets to the highest readings but i started played League of legends and my displayed crashed twice and weirdest part is when i played high end games such as GTA V , thief , Witcher 3 and AC unity my system didnt crash before last night , its so weird and i am so confused

It could be a driver issue or an unstable OC causing your crashes in LoL. If you dont have the newest drivers, get them, if you are on the newest drivers allready, try rolling back to an older set and see if that helps. Likewise you could try lowering your overclock and see if that helps. I was having issues at +120Mhz (~1440MHz) on my core that would only show up as random driver crashes. I had to increase my voltage tables and TDP limits a tad through the BIOS to get it working at +180MHz (1493MHz) core and +500MHz (8100MHz) memory when I switched to watercooled with a good backplate.

i don't think i cannot tweak the voltage because its sort of disabled in my MSI after burner, its just confusing why would my driver crash and cause my system to restart in a minor game such as LoL, while it works perfectly in games such as GTA V , Thief and AC unity on ultra settings. i have made several profiles in msi AB when i play lol i switch to stock settings and when i play game such as witcher 3 etc i turn the OC settings profile on, i will also send you screenshot of the graphs of GPU temp , core and memory clock when i play a high end game for half an hour on OC settings ...Thanks a bunch man , god bless thumb.gif

This is a screenshot of the graphs of MSI AB and GPU-Z , i took these after running furmark and the benchmark of middle earth shadow of mordor.
