Evga Voltage Tuner

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Just picked up a GTX 280 from EVGA (SSC). I hear a load of people going on about it, but i'd like some advice using it and what results you have gotten using it. I have it downloaded ready. Never messed with voltage before on a GFX Card, so any help would be appreciated.

It's real straight forward crank up the voltage then use evga precision to try for some higher clocks and use furmark to test its stability.

I use the voltage tuner on my gtx 260 and it really only helped when trying to push my card to the limits. It helped me bump the core clock from 77x to 783 and it helped me bump the shaders from 1566 all the way to 1674.

The thing is that voltage alone won't help all that much, if any. Temp is going to make the biggest difference. Temp will be what usually limits how high your card is going to clock. Even temp in the 50-60° can have an impact on how high the card can clock. If you do use the VT, I only suggest that you use it if you have the fan speed at 100%. That's the only time that it can help or if you have better cooling or live in Antarctica.

Has anyone had any experience using it on a GTX 280. Would like to know your results.

keep in mind with the GTX 200 series that the temps really hold back your OC. So make sure to keep the card cool if you want to OC.

Oh it will be. I won't be doing it with the stock cooler. Would be on some after-market cooling like the HR-03 GTX.
