MSI 460GTX Cyclone 768 help overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can someone please help me safely overclock my card? I just got it and I"m new to cards. I did some search but I'm a little confused. I use my PC for work, so I don't want to over do anything and mess things up.

I have an intel core 2 Quad q6600 2.4GHz
4gigs ram
I just bough a CX600PSU as well.
I used kombustor and it got up to 64 degress on max settings after 5 minutes, with my resolution of 1920x1080.

I'm not sure how much to adjust settings or how to properly do it while checking?
Thank you.

If you are using Kombustor, then are you also using MSI Afterburner? If so, you will see options to adjust Core, Shader, and Memory timings. The very first slider is to adjust voltages. To unlock voltage control, go to the settings and under the general tab check the boxes in the safety properties category. I see that your card is at 725 Core/1450 Shader/1800 Mem. Now you can raise the values. You should go in 25 Mhz increments for the Core/Shader and about 10-15 Mhz for the memory for every 50 Mhz raised on the Core/Shader. GTX 460s OC easily, so should be able to reach ~850Mhz. While testing, if you get artifacts or crashes, raise the voltage a little then try again. Good luck!

The 460 GTX is definitely easy to OC, the first overclock i did right after installing was 850Core/2000memory and did 10mins of furmark, follow by Vantage.

Now it running stable at 900-1800-2000@1.05volt.

Thanks.
I put it up to 850/2000

Core voltage is at 975.

Everything is running fun. Should I just leave it like that?

GPU usage is at 99% when I tested stability in Kombustor.
Fan speed went to 72%

Also when I use Kombustor I use render path direct3d 9, is that right? I use 10 or 11 and it's blurry?

Use DX11 for Kombustor and Vantage to check for artifact.
