stress test or what not - Page 2

post #11 of 23
in kombustor you can enable fs msaa etc,just max all the settings if you want a true representation of stress!
also it would be prudent to enable your own fan settings so you get max fan cooling earlier than the default to keep the gpu and vram cool as poss,
when i run them air cooled i have the min settings at 30c and max at 80c
watch those temps rise like a 45 degree angle!
i think my main 470 goes to 65 degrees after being on for hours.

Afterburner is the overclocking software used to adjust the settings on your card. I have no clue about your card or set up so leave it alone till you do some research about your particular hardware.

Oh, so I guess to answer your question, just get Kombustor for testing

its punishing. From what I have read if you can run it for 20 min your good to go. I have found that if I am going to fail kombustor I do it in about 9 min. If I can make it past 9 min it will go for ever. But again thats me. I believe the recommendation is to run it for 20.

Watch your temps, mine get as hot as they are going to get after about 5 min, but I'm sure every system is different.

Yes, pretty much.
Its like dropping a TON weight on wild-e-coyote and expect him to not getting squashed

Overclocking by just brutal numbers isn't going to help you if you want to OC.
Start with the clock, add 5 or 10, and retest until its unstable, than go back a bit.
Than you can start with the memory.

Volts adding as required and by how much hot the GPU is.

Just sent a pm and explained my process, but I cant emphasize enough about reading all you can first. Spend 3 days reading and 1 day over clocking Check here, check the software section here as well and other forums. I really like OC.net but its not the only chicken in the shed, browse around. Variety is the spice of life.
