post #1441 of 1902
What is considered a High OC for the GTX 480 with the stock cooler? I have my eVGA GTX 480 SC OC'd to 865 MHz Core clock, 1730 MHz Shader Clocks, and 1925 MHz Memory clock. It has the reference cooler on it but I have been thinking about getting one of these aftermarket GPU coolers as they have become more readily available and actually work well. Any input here would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to hear from some GTX 480 owners that have upgraded their GPU coolers but water cooling isn't an option for me right now as I cannot afford the whole cost of a loop at the time. Thanks in advance and let me know what OC I should shoot for with my card now. Oh and I am at 1.1v with max temps at full load of: 74c when stress testing for around 30 min and mid 60's when folding 24/7. I have the High flow bracket and will be getting the high flow back plate here shortly. I hope I gave you enough information to be able to assist me in this but if not then let me know please. =D

GTX 470 > GTX 460 1GB > GTX 465 > GTX 460 768MB

Though a well oc'd 460 can meet/exceed stock 470 performance.

What cooler is that on your card? Or is that the stock one that came with the card? I am looking to upgrade from the stock hamster wheel that I have now on my eVGA GTX 480 SC. I asked earlier for suggestions as to what cooler would be a nice upgrade and offer much lower temps but have not received an answer yet. I'm almost tempted to get a H50 and mod it to fit on there lol. Or even better, get the H50 for my CPU and then mod my Cooler Master V10 Hybrid that I have like they have it shown being used in the eVGA RMA video shown Here

I have 2 EVGA GTX465's to add along with my 2 EVGA GTX470's


Just a mild OC for now. Letting em fold a while to break them in.



Yes. an update would be nice.

Oh and I am at 1.1v with max temps at full load of: 74c when stress testing for around 30 min and mid 60's when folding 24/7. I have the High flow bracket and will be getting the high flow back plate here shortly. I hope I gave you enough information to be able to assist me in this but if not then let me know please. =D
When I first started overclocking my GTX480 with the reference cooler my max OC was 852MHz core, 1704 shader and 4200MH memory @1.138V. I would say that you and I are very close in our OC on air, as of now I just got my $600+ dollar water cooling system up and running. My OC as of now is 880Mhz core (47C loaded), 1760MHz shader and 4400MHz @1.138V. I feel that at 890MHz core I need more voltage, I am right on the edge at 890MHz.

I don't feel as I have hit a wall just yet as my temps are still manageable with a max temp of 74 (that's the highest I ever saw) and a normal operating temp while folding is in the high 60's so as soon as this months folding competition is over I will try and raise a little more so i guess that if I am that close to you with the stock cooler as you have with your $600 of water cooling that I have a damm good card then. Thanks for the input on this. I might try the $600 setup and then go for 900+ lol

Just remeber once you have the $600 dollar water cooling system it will serve you in the long run, you don't have to spend $600 for a good WC system. I went nuts on bling, the compression fittings a lone were $100 dollars, EK backplate $30 for looks only. I forgot to list my temps, 92C was my operating temp so it sounds like you really do have a better chip!

That's awesome. I am ordering the High flow back plate today to go with the high flow bracket that I already have so that should actually lower temps by about 6c. Oh and I have a custom BIOS too so my memory timings are also tighter than a stock eVGA GTX SC (but that really doesn't help much for folding lol). Well I guess that it would be like your computers memory, adjusting the memory speed doesn't make your computer run as fast as lowering the timings does so I would think that it's the same for a video cards memory too.
