Overclocking applications and instructions

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ill be getting my msi geforce 570 gtx OC version gpu 786/ memory 4200 default next week.

Now I want to know what I need in terms of software and what procedure I should follow in overclocking. There seems to be many options so I want an experienced answer.

The motherboard I will be using is: Asrock P67 extreme 6

Could someone make an detail instruction as how to safely overclock this specific configuration, with all settings discussed? Like when do you need to increase voltage, or should which different parts to overclock gpu/shader/mem or to leave alone etc.

Im a novice at overclocking .

Detailed help would be greatly appreciated and I will post back with results promptly when I get my system.

I'll be overclocking for 24/7 use, and want at least 850 on gpu core.

MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision is what you should use to OC your card. I believe there is some guides on here, use search to find them.

No I won't use google that's why i opened this topic. I want a direct response. sheehz hate it when people always say google it when someone makes a thread.

And each card is different, different stock settings or cooling, pcb etc.

So I use afterburner for overclocking, is there any reason to do a bios update if your doing mildy-average overclocks?

What tool is the best to test your overclock /find artefacts in your opinion?

Would you advise touching only overclocking core and leaving shader/memory alone?

Or should I attempt all 3? Mind this is an OC edition and memory already runs pretty high @stock 4200 mhz when I see other gtx 570 at this forum

If you know this, then why're you making a thread? Do your own testing and see what suits your card best. Not to mention, this has probably been answered hundreds of times, that's why it's best for you to search because it's already been covered.

So I use afterburner for overclocking, is there any reason to do a bios update if your doing mildy-average overclocks?

Personally, if it ain't broke. Don't fix it. If you feel you need to do a BIOS update, then do so.

What tool is the best to test your overclock /find artefacts in your opinion?

Furmark, but do realize that it throttles your GPU so it doesn't implode on you.

Would you advise touching only overclocking core and leaving shader/memory alone?

Depends, if you're doing something like F@H then it's shader dependent. If you're looking for an increase in performance for gaming, then core/memory.

Or should I attempt all 3? Mind this is an OC edition and memory already runs pretty high @stock 4200 mhz when I see other gtx 570 at this forum

What is furmark?

Ok I got my new pc with an MSI Geforce 570 GTX OC 1280 MB.

These are the default stats:
Core voltage:987mV
Core clock mhz:786
Shader clock mhz:1572
Memory clockmhz:2100
Fanspeed:40%

So I should probably start out by increasing gpu with 5 or 10 mhz right? So then I need to stress test it right? Let's say I use MSI Kombuster, is this a good choice?
What would I run? The Kmark benchmark? Or GPU burn-in?(with or without xtreme burn in? and what API, directx or opengl etc.)

And how long should I run the test? The card shouldn't get hotter than 80 or 85 degrees right? And how would I know if it isn't stable? will it give me a message? Or do I need to actively monitor the screen for any artefacts?

Hope someone can answer all that. thank you.

I personally use OCCT

If you enable error checking and run it at 8 shader complexity for 20mins then you should be good to go

So only 20 minutes is enough?

What other settings do I use, or default?
I see a checkbox for burn-in, Xtreme burn in, Dynamic camera etc.

With cpu I need to run it for hours they say.

Do i need to watch it? or will it message me if error?

I read this also test cpu, since im also overclocking cpu, i'd prefer a testing without cpu as much as possible.

Oh and I heard that you shouldn't disable OCP? Where is this done? Im not planning on disabling it, but just want to know where it is?

Yeah 20 is fine for the GPU with OCCT.

I know what you are referring to with disabling a certain something, but that isn't something on the 4xx series cards so I have no experience with that. Sorry I cant' help with that bit

Ok no problem mate,

I think I found out it's the checkbox /gtx500ocp in furmark. So ill avoid that

Ill try OCCT and furmark tommorow, im currently prime testing my cpu.

Though another question I have been wondering is, when do you increase voltage?

For example you set a clock and it crashes or you see artefacts, A. The clock is too high? B. Not enough voltage?
With what kind of voltage would u start increasing if the stresstrest crashes or produces artefacts?
