2. Start slowly:
- Set up Power Limit to max, Temperature Limit to max and set fans to 100% in Afterburner. DO NOT TOUCH VOLTAGE CURVE or Voltage slider.
- Get Heaven benchmark and start it with just above settings. Download GPU-Z.
- Start GPU-Z, go to Sensors and set Voltage to show you highest value like below:
- Next start Heaven and see how high will your card boost with only that settings above in Afterburner. AGAIN- DO NOT TOUCH VOLTAGE.
- Get yourself sheet of paper and pen and write down your highest clock value (when Heaven starts), your mid clock (in the middle of Heave) and core clock at the end of Heaven.
- Now close Heaven and look at max voltage your card was taking during that benchmark.
Now start playing with Core and Memory in Afterburner:
- Start low. Add +10 to Core and +100 to Memory. Run Heaven. See if its stable, how much higher did it boost.
- Stable? Again another +10 and +50 to Memory.
- Rinse and repeat.
- You see artefacting? Too high Memory OC. Heaven crash, drivers crash? Too high core OC.
Check where is your Max OC with just it. When you find it, run some games for few hours. See if card downclock itself a lot or only a little after few hours.
After that post your results and we can see if you need to work on Voltage Curve or not
