How does my GTX 470 perform compared to a 480?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I OC my 470 to 800/1600/1850 @1.087v. Stable so far. Anyway, how is my card compared to a stock 480? Also, my full load when gaming is 85c. Is that a good/safe temperature?

At those clocks, it should be very close to 480 performance in the large majority of scenarios. 85C at those high of clocks/volts is perfectly normal, yes, not dangerous at all. Over 95C is where you should start to worry.

I have 2 msi gtx480s running in SLI and let me tell you, they are beastly with overclocking. My stock clock is 700mhz. Even with the extra heat involved with running sli and having the top cards fan get suffocated, I've overclocked them to 900mhz for benchmarking. It stays pretty stable but not for hours of gaming. For gaming I keep them both at 820mhz. Run them all day like this without any problems. Helps the ambient temp in my room is 66 degrees F. My cards will get to about 85 degrees celcius max. These gpus are safe until about 96 degrees celcius. So id say you are just fine with your 470.

If you pushed your card to 850/1700/4000 you'd surpass a stock 480 just slightly.
