When Overclocking...?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Just got my GTX 460 in today and I plan on OCing it throughout the night and when I do so, should I do a stability test on Kombustor or just do the simple Benchmarking test?

Crank her up to 1.087v, set core to 900, memory to 1000, fan to 100% and run vantage

I usually run game benchmarks like crysis or metro2033 dirt2 etc. Vantage is good to. I hate Kombuster far to stressful.

I use OCCT GPU test. Works great. Used at native resolution and Max Shader complexity. I use 15 - 20 min runs. I have found that if my clocks are stable in OCCT they will be stable in every game too.

I don't have Vantage and it would take hours to DL on my internet. Does OCCT work the same way as a CPU stress test? If so that will be fine.

But I'll use Jean's idea with OCCT for 20min.

Wait, underclock the memory to 1000mhz?

Think it was my idea to use OCCT for 20 min?

Anyhow, yeah.. it works in a way like a CPU stability tester. OCCT also have tests for CPU and mem in that same program
