GTX 480 stock voltage question.

post #1 of 19

What is a good stock voltage for a GTX 480?

I normally don't mess with the voltage, but someone interested in my card wanted this information.

Any insight would be appreciated.

looking at the stock volt... you have a EVGA???

mine were the same....

it is a good voltage which allows for a good OC without changing it

Wow. That was quick. Thank you!

Actually, it is the absolute cheapest GTX480 I could get, the Zotac, and it was on sale when I bought it.

Great to know it has similar voltage to an EVGA.

both of my 480s i bought has 1.05v stock....

i later on put the modded BIOS on both to unlock 1.2v to see what type of OC i could get with my AXP coolers....

which while i am on the matter of coolers...

what cooling does your card have?

reference design or after-market

1.05 is pretty good, but take heed in that different software will sometimes report different voltages.

For me, Everest reported a stock VID of 1.050, AB reported 1.063 and GPU-Z reported 1.037.
Kind of a weird phenomenon.

My cooler was reference, which was a reason why they ran so hot.

What speeds were you able to OC to?

Good stock voltage? That would be 1v...
Had that on my old card and it overclocked very nicely.

Now the new 480 I have came with 1.050, I can OC it to 775core and fold with no errors on it. Possibly can get more for just gaming without having to change the volts.

i run 800/1600/2200 on both card with the stock voltage (1.05v) / 24/7

960/1920/2200.... on both cards in SLI with 1.2v

out of SLI i couldn't go any higher on ether one... sadly

Just a FYI 960/1920 on a GTX 480 is insane! Do not expect the same kind of overclocks for your card.

Expect around an overclock of 850-900... (900 being very optimistic).
