Palit gtx 560 Ti OC'ing problem

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi. I have a Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic. a very good card for my htpc. plays every game that I play on my LCDTV. the thing is I can't OC it. dunno if it just sucks or there's a problem that I'm not aware of.

My card's stock voltage is 0.987 and is a pre overclocked card from 822mhz to 900mhz core clock. I can't OC it much. I'm really struggling on getting it stable even with only 928mhz clock speed. when I'm running benchamrks like heaven, 3dmark to check for stability, the pc will crash and the fan will run at full speed so I need to reset the pc.

what could be this problem? is it just a case of a really crappy overclocking card? does doing things like flashing the bios or disabling the power limiter fix my problem? help me guys. TIA OCN. God Bless smile.gif

This. You're already pushing 100MHz over default. Even 1MHz over default isn't guaranteed.

I was hoping for better answers frown.gif I've found a couple of threads here in OCN with Palit GT 560's having the same problem as mine. could it be by any chance a bios problem?

P.S. what does it mean anyway when your pc suddenly crashes and gpu fan speed is rev'ed up to 100%? I don't have much experience with nvidia cards. I'm really an amd/ati guy

Thats a good clock at that stock voltage.
my gigabyte oc (900) stock vid 1.01v. but with ab setting 1.08V -1.10V is good for 970+
jsu turn up the fan and keep an eye on temps with osd while gaming

Bro thats a good clock for the Philippines.
your idle is 40c mine at same is 24c
If you have room temp wise put a tad more volts in it,say 1.03 under 5 mv extra.
See how it goes.
