Best and safe overclock rating for 560TI?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm thinking about overclocking my MSI Twin Frozr tonight...This will be my first time overclocking also not to lie. What are the best and safest numbers i should be looking at when overclocking my 560TI and how can i go about reaching those numbers? I got the afterburner, but since i never overclocked i dont just want to noob it out and start sliding numbers without knowing what to do first.

I've overclocked mine to the following (core/shader/memory) (multiply the memory speed by 2 to get the Afterburner number - 'DDR'):

1.000V - 920/1840/1050
1.025V - 960/1920/1050
1.050V - 980/1960/1050
1.075V - 1000/2000/1050

Of course, you are not guaranteed these results, but before you unlock 'voltage control' in Afterburner, you should creep up your clocks (I really don't think the memory clock makes a huge difference in games) and see where they're stable at stock voltage. If you're not satisfied, you can crank up the voltage too (I used a step size of 0.0125V).

To test for stability, I use the Crysis Warhead benchmarks (frost, avalanche, ambush) at 1920x1080, 8xAA, Enthusiast settings, 10 loops each, and then a couple of runs of 3DMark06 and 3DMark11.
