Trying to OC my EVGA GTX 460 SC

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, I'm trying to OC my EVGA GTX 460, but MSI Afterburner won't let me change the voltage. Any idea why?

Go into Setting and under the General tab you will see options to "Unlock voltage control and voltage monitoring." Check both of those boxes and reopen Afterburner.

No problem. Enjoy your overclocking. My ASUS 460 runs at 800 core with the voltage at .987 and 900 at 1.087v.

Well the shaders are locked and they always run twice the speed of the core. I havent tried overclocking the memory. I use those GPUs for folding.

Do you guys use OCCT with error checking for stability testing or only Furmark? I set my core to 850 and I get errors in OCCT, but in Furmark there are no artifacts.

I dont typically run OCCT or Furmark. I will test with Vantage and then try a couple of games. Playing a few levels of Batman AA always found unstable overclocks.
