I'm overclocking a GTS 250 Twin Frozr, how much headroom?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just having fun overclocking an MSI Twin Frozer'd GTS 250 (1 GB). I have the clock speeds at Core 850/ Shader 1920, memory stock, at a max of 56 C. How much headroom do I have? Can I get to one GHz?

By the way, I do like the card a lot. Fixed some huge texture issues in FO3 and 3Dmark 06/Vantage.

Oops! Seems I can't even get it to 900 MHz core without a boost in voltage!

I have the 512MB version on my folding rig, and it runs fine for days at 750/1950/1100. You wont be able to hit 1000mhz core without a voltmod though.
