overclocking GTX470 "normaly" wont work?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
well, got a GTX470 and now i'm looking into overclocking it.. i have tried a few tools but none of them work really as they should

the card in question is a Asus GTX470..

Smartdoctor works well, but it wont allow adjusting core and shader separately, and it seems to be a bit buggy aswell..

MSI Afterburner v1.5.1 seems to be so far the best, only that:
Voltage adjusting is greyed out even after i enabled it in the settings
Core clock slider adjusts memory speed
Shader clock slider adjusts shaders
Memory clock slider dont adjust anything
However, fan speed adjusting works perfect

Xtreme tuner HD is the worst piece of crap so far, it messes up the fan so that it gives some random readings to gpu-z etc, and it also tries to completely force the fan to 40% no matter what, and the sliders adjust everything but what they should

Rivatuner obiviously wont detect the gtx470 so that it could adjust clocks

oh, and, i have 257.15 drivers installed

You can't clock the core and shader seperately.
They are locked at 2:1. So adjusting the core to 700 would put the shader at 1400.
And use MSI Afterburner 1.6 wich is updated for the GTX400 series.

Download this.

Go into the settings and uncheck Voltage protection or something like that. Then it will allow you to fully adjust the voltage and all the clocks.

This. I had the same problem until someone recommended MSI Afterburner 1.60 Beta. Smart Doctor doesnt work for me so I use Xtreme Tuner HD to adjust the Shader/Core (linked 2:1) as well as the memory frequency. MSI is used to adjust the fan and the voltage.

I've gotta suggest MSI Afterburner 1.6 beta.
It got the job done for me, and with really great clock speeds.

you need MSI After Burner 1.6, i got ASUS GTX470 and its wonderful in overclocking man.. i could go 800MHz on core but i don't need it so i set it this way 0.975v Core voltage/757MHZ core/1515MHz Shader/1717mhz Memory.

My EVGA is a champ too. I ended up getting stopped by my temps (Stock cooling) at 800 core, 1600 shader, and 1850 memory. I could probably get it higher but I didnt feel like dealing with it cuz the temps started getting into the high 80s/low 90s so I just downclocked to my everyday OC of 720 core, 1440 shader, and 1765 memory @1.012v. Again I could probably get the voltage down by adjusting my memory clock but I'd be missing too much time folding!!! lol. I'm getting around 14PPD with this bad boy.

I was able to get my clocks to
voltage 1.087
core: 825
shader: 1650
memory: 1900
Running stable for as long as I tested, had kombuster up for a while, then did some intensive gaming and it kept running great.
It hit about 78C (with stock cooling) on full load.
Later decided to kick the speeds back a little bit, just for some cooler temps.

Good choice getting an EVGA =]
