Is this overclock of a GTX 550 Ti considered good?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an ASUS GTX 550 Ti, with a base core clock of 910 MHz and a base memory clock of 1026 Mhz.

I started off slowly, because they said this card is not very good for overclocking and I would not gain a considerable amount of performance, but I tried anyway.
At first, I was going up in 20 MHz steps, then 10 Mhz steps, until I reached a 1010 Mhz core clock, then the driver started to crash, so I raised the voltage from 1087 mV to 1100 mV, so it was set for another 50 Mhz, when I finally reached a whoppin' 1060 Mhz, and slowly raised it to 1085 Mhz, where I stopped for a while, because I started to see visual artifacts, then raised the voltage again to 1130 mV, and finally reached 1100 MHz.

Did the same thing with the memory, except I didn't need to raise the voltage that much anymore, so I settled down with a core clock of 1100 MHz and a memory clock of 1152 MHz. I gained about 9-10 fps on the "furry donut" test in MSI Kombustor, and about 3-4 fps in the memory burner.

The temperature is about at 60C under load (fan at 45%) and 40-45 when the computer is idle (fan at 29%)

Was it worth it?

TBH any stable overclock is good. Since it's still running cool then I'd say it's worth it.
