Help with overclocking GTX 950 SSC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all.

I came to ask how I would go about overclocking my GTX 950 in the safest way possible. I only have the stock fans for the CPU and GPU in my case, so I wanted to ask about it first before I did anything. For games like Dark Souls III and Overwatch, I get around 50-55 fps on max settings, so I was hoping to get a little boost to get me over the 60 fps mark. biggrin.gif

This is the card

Also, sorry if this is the wrong section. Thanks!

Download Msi Afterburner.
Install.
Pull core clock slider to the right in steps of 20Mhz while running a game. If you see no artifacts and/or crashes, congratulations, it is a stable overclock. If you see some of those, pull back couple of Mhz.
You can now repeat the same with the memory clock slider.
