Should I OC my gtx 480 again?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I burned out my other gtx 480 by overclocking it, and had to Rma it. I got it back and now I'm wondering if I should try again. My last settings that burned out my last 480 were:

870 core
whatever is connected to 870 core in shaders
2000 memory
1.1v core voltage
all of the other voltages left at stock

Was my last card a dud, or did I just put in too much voltage?
