Is 1.150mV too high of a GPU voltage?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I got my card to 1k core but it only remains stable with the max voltage allowed to my card (using MSI Afterburner BETA 7 btw) which is 1.150mV, but i just wanted to know is this voltage going to lower the lifespan on the card tremendously? redface.gif

I need this to last me a while, but then again i do beleive MSI has a good warranty. Temperatures are still great, only hit 70c at 100% GPU usage and usually floats around 60-65c in Just Cause 2.

Rep+ to helpers,

Thank you! thumb.gif

Tremendously? I wouldn't think so. There's no way to say exactly how much it will shorten the lifespan of your card, but Afterburner has a fairly conservative over voltage range. Going beyond that with a BIOS flash or something can be risky, but for the most part you should be safe. Your temps look fine.

I don't know what the average stock voltage is for that card but my general rule of thumb is +5% voltage is my limit for long term use.

I used to have a GTX470. They had a stock voltage around 1v, so my soft limit would be 1.05V

However, MSI makes that card, and also decides the max voltage allowed by the afterburner so you're within warranty at 1.150V. Personally, I'd see what i could get at 1.1V but i'm fairly conservative voltage wise.

As far as I know, if the temps are low the degradation is minimal. GPUs like lower temps. biggrin.gif

As long as you did not MOD the bios as 1.15v is what AB has a option the card should handle it and still be under warranty. Also temps look very good so it should be no problem. You cant know for sure as it might be just like GTX570 but as long as you dont Furmark it or OCCT it you should be fine.

Sweet! Thanks guys, yeah i figured if the temps were low it should be good. But what do you mean 'i cant know for sure as might be just like GTX570'? What's wrong with the 570?

I think the 570's literally burned up when using stress testers like Furmark.

But these 560's have a limiter on them now so that can't happen anymore. The card won't be stressed in Furmark now as much as it has stressed other cards in the past due to that, so you may be better off just playing a game to stress test it because that will probably put more load on your card.

Sweeet!
So there is a plus to having a newer card that's less powerful afterall sneaky.gif

Rep+ to you all

ya you should be ok, as long as you dont go above the voltage in afterburner
if you do then prolly not it might fry
