GTX 460 Max overclock - Page 2

What's the max voltage i can push through this thing??? 1.050???
Well the default voltage on the 1GB version of the gtx460 ranges from 0.975v to 1.05v depending on the make of your card. 768mb version is .975v.
The maximum voltage that the GTX460 BIOS allows is 1.087v on all makes and models, this voltage is safe to max out as long as the cooling is good enough around the vrms. It is possible to mod the BIOS to allow 1.21v but this is advanced stuff that isnt really worth it unless you are an overclocker with a mission, lol.
If you hear whining when you stress test the card, dont worry, it's because there is more load on the capacitors to keep the voltages on the card in check.

Temp threshold is 105c and shutdown at 120c so I wouldnt worry about gpu temps.

Hope this helps

That does help actually:) Thanks for replying.

And i always wondered about the whining thing too. Glad it's nothing to worry about, always thought i was damaging my system lol.

Gonna whack up the volts and try 900mhz. Cheers.

Ok my MSI cyclone never pass the 60 ºC at full load OC @900MHz core and there are no capacitors noise, but i think is because the military components that MSI use really is very cool and quite, i had an HD 4890 recently and the buzzing noise was excessive, but i think that is normal too

My voltage is 1.087

pretty sure someone was running 2 460's in sli @ 900mhz each..
and heard people getting them up to 1ghz. but yeh lol i dnt think ill be pushing my card that far for now.

friend can get 900mhz think.. idk what volts and think 1ghz lasted like 10min under furmark xD idk what volts again lol

nice oc btw :]

ewan hit 930/1860/2100 in SLI with the msi gtx460 768mb cyclone

Well TBH I think the whining noise varies from card to card and the benchmark/stress test you use. For example..., my 460 whines under load when I run furmark but when I run the more demanding OCCT stability test, my card doesnt whine at all? So I think it makes me believe that depending on the way a program has been designed to test your card you may or may not hear the noise. I'm not sure if its dependant on the quality of the parts, my ASUS Geforce GTX460 is built with high grade components as is pretty much every other GTX460 on the market. The military grade components linked with the MSI 460 is only marketed for the heatsink and shroud... Anyone want to back me up on this?

P.S. tested BFBC2 and it runs fine without and issues at 920mhz, have noticed that every now and then I see purple dots flash on the screen, usually when there is a sharp transition in the colours, like looking from the ground to the sky.

Peace

gunna correct something here: maximum temperature for GTX 460 is 104 C wink.gif
anyway i got mine folding stable at 900MHz 1.087v running at 69-72 C. currently at 69 C

i tried going higher but that get me artifacts on OCCT when temp breach like 75

Ooorrrr just play a game with Vsync off and play for a while to see if it's stable? AvP is the best choice since it drives your card fairly hard.
