What have you overclocked your GTS 250 to?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just curious what people have gotten their GTS 250's to? Also, have any of you flashed the BIOS for better performance? Also, does anyone know how to unlock the fan speeds on the GTS250? Mine won't go past 34%

I've gotten mine to 790/1894/1200 clocks without artifacting in games, and I keep mine at 100% fan speed, so it stays at around 65-67 while gaming. I haven't flashed the BIOS, and I set the fan speed in EVGA Precision to 100%. Kinda loud, but cooling is more important to me.

Spartan, will EVGA precision work with a non-EVGA card? I have a BFG card.

The Nvidia control panel doesn't give me a performance option or anything, so I can't use Nvidia's control panel to overclock it or move up the fan speed.

Yes you can use evga precision. Its very easy to use for beginners. If you want an adnvanced prgram you can use rivatuner. But you will have to watch a few tutorials to learn how to use it. Ive only gotten my card to 770 but i have a green edition so it has less voltage. use ati to check for artifacts. Good luck on your OC!!

I run mine at 800/1963/1208 core/shader/memory, also through EVGA Precision. There's an option to leave the fan on auto, or control it manually, shouldn't need to do anything special outside of that. I keep it at ~90%, which keeps me at 71C while folding/gaming, there's actually a pretty big volume difference from 90% to 100%, and it only drops me another 1C at full speed.

750 cores , 1900shade , 1150mem , fan speed @ 70%

840mhz core clock/1970mhz shader clock/1156 memory clock.

MSI afterburner is better imo
