Highest stable overclock for gtx 460

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just bought a Gigabyte GTX 460 SOC 1gb and its amazing! But i was wondering what the most stable overclock would be. I've seen stock gtx 460 run at 1 ghz. i was hoping for something close to that. Thanks in advance!

i have a gigabyte and i had another i took back because it clocked like crap so if yours is anything like mine i wouldnt expect much over 900.

I've gotten my PNY to about 850 without upping the voltage too much.

Considering stock is 675, its a pretty nice oc, and temps are decent.

I win the award for lowest stable overclock. That's for sure. =P
Maxes out at 850MHz at 1.087mV.

As for hitting 1 GHz, don't count on it. You'd definitely need to raise your voltage cap to come close however.

Really? How badly did it overclock? And how did you return it? =/

couldnt come even close to 900mhz so i just took it back to MC and exchanged it for another and this one does 890 which i'm not at all happy about but oh well. My hawk does 970 no problem so i have to drop its clocks to match the crap gigabyte card.
