post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Whats up all well could do with some help for a little bit right just downloaded atitool pritty new to this right what ive been doing is finding out what the max my core and mem will go is that right for clockming just keep testing it one by one ? my heat now at 53c / 64c core at now 457mhz and my mem is at 503mhz is this good i dont know when should i stop because i dont want to kill my card thanks for your help guys ive run that now for 7mins seem no problem just takin my foot of the gas temp drop to 52c

Why do you use ati tool on a nvidia
You'll be better of using rivatuner and 64c isn't that high for those cards, nvidia has the maximum gpu temp for the gtx 280 on 105c but I wouldn't use that as your limit XD

Theres nothing wrong with using ATI tool on nvidia cards despite its name.
However your right. Use Rivatuner for setting clocks. Use Ati tool to scan for artifacts.

Since your a beginner I would say pick up EVGA's Precision OC tool. Its really easy to use. Bump up your fan speed. I think 80% is pretty inaudible.

Should be able to get that card up to the 600mhz range for core clock and for mem i would say around the 1200 mark. Dont forget that those cards have a downclocking feature and will have a lower clock when using 2d apps to save power so dont freak if it drops to around 300mhz when your not gaming.

Try to keep that card under 90C just to be on the safe side.

When you OC make sure you run either a game, a benchmark utility, or ATI tool for atleast 30 minutes without artifacts to be semi stable. I know a few who wont use the card if its not stable in ATI tool for atleast 8 hours.

Let us know what your max is. Its different on every card.

(by the way its actually a GTX 280 not GF, Might wanna fix that in your sig rig)

First of all, nice card. If I had the money, then I'd probably have the GTX 280 as well!

Anyway, I second the vote for using RivaTuner to overclock, but ATi Tool for testing. RivaTuner also allows you to adjust the Shader clock which, of the 3 clocks, it is the most important clock to adjust.

Here are some answers to your questions to help get this thread moving:

Q: what ive been doing is finding out what the max my core and mem will go is that right for clockming just keep testing it one by one ?


That's pretty much it. You increase it by a tiny bit, and then do some testing. Increase, test, increase, test, then repeat. However, I use a slightly dumber method: I just ramp it up to the highest overclock I've seen used for my card, and then I go slightly above it - especially with the shader clock. Then I play some games for several hours until I notice instability. I don't use ATi Tool for testing. lol Like I said, I think this is a dumb way. But that's how I want to do it. After testing this way, I have so far overclocked my card from 740/1836/1100 to 799/2160/1318. I would increase the core clock past 800MHz, but if I do that, then I have to lower the shaders. I kinda like 2160, so I want to keep it if I can. I may even see if I can raise it even a little more!

Q: my heat now at 53c / 64c core at now 457mhz and my mem is at 503mhz is this good i dont know when should i stop because i dont want to kill my card

For stock cooling your temps are pretty normal. I realize we're dealing with 55nm here, but I used to have an 8600 GT. The temps got as high as about 75c, and the idle temp was almost always at 50c. But after looking around in Google, I learned that those were very normal temps for stock cooling. I also learned that some people even go above 90c without any problems, and I remember something stated to the effect of "GPUs can take much more heat than CPUs".

With my card's stock cooling, I haven't seen temps go much higher than 60. Thanks to the built-in HybridPower, my idle temp is 32c because it underclocks itself to 300/600/1100. But when it's at 799/2160/1318, the idle temps are a little higher by a few degrees.

Finally, you mentioned that you ran it like that for 7 minutes. That's a fine length of time to test while you're in the middle of overclocking. But when you reach the end, try to do at least a few hours of testing. If I am wrong, then somebody please correct me immediately.

For example, when I was climbing up from 740/1836/1100, I'd increase, test for a few minutes, increase some more, test, increase some more, and then when I had enough, I'd test for a few hours and then quit and came back later.


I hope my exceptionally long reply proves to be very helpful in some way or another.
