How to overclock MSI 560ti?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127569.

with msi after burner, what are decent OC settings?

Never OC a gpu before

Just up the core clock to what ever you like, try maby 50mhz or 100mhz at first then use vantage GPU tests or just play games on it(or game benchmarks) and if it works for like 5 mins your good to go, if it glitchs out or stops working up the voltage say 10-20mv at a time until it is stable.

Thanks, Sir Overkill.

And does fan speed automatically change to the OC, or do I manually change the speed?

Yes it should change as it gets hotter, leave it on auto unless you are going for a max or very high overclock.

Also go settings/monitoring and you can set it to show your gpu temp in the corner of the screen, Click GPU temperature then click show in on screen display.

Thanks, Sir Overkill.

If you check my sig rig, my settings are pretty much as high as I can get my OC.

Congrats on your 560 TFII. GPU overclocks come in two flavors: stock voltage and tweaked voltage. Stock voltage is where to start; some 560 FTII will hit a stable 975+Mhz on stock voltage while others will hit unstability around 925Mhz. OC stablity is in the eye of the beholder; some benchmarks/games allow a much higher OC than others. To hit a higher OC than stock voltage allows, raise the voltage using this version of afterburner: http://downloads.guru3d.com/Afterbur...load-2604.html. This version is released by MSI and is recommended by them; the afterburner shipped with the card does not allow the voltage to be raised. Go easy on raising voltages, start at about 1.03v and see how it goes. Even though the max allowed is 1.15v it's not recommended, though around 1.06v should be long term safe. RAM can also be overclocked though its effect is barely noticable. Artifacting and/or instablity will show up if it can't handle the RAM OC. Enjoy!

You can start off by increasing core clocks anywhere from 25-30mhz and then 5-10mhz when it's about to reach it's limit of stability and test it out to see if it stables, keep doing this until it reaches it's limit and take off at least 10mhz, after being stable you can start tweaking the memory clock with the same steps as previous, start off with 25-30 MHz and then slow to 5-10 MHz until it reaches it limit of stability then shave off 10mhz...I did all this at a stock voltage of 1.025 and reached 975/2160 and it works great, right now I'm going to try and reach 1ghz by increasing the voltage a little and also try to tweak my memory clock to 2200, like the previous post said, do not go crazy with tweaking your volts as it is unnecessary to go 1.110 volts stay to about 1.075 or lower.

I can't say anything about msi after burner because im using evga precision but i got my evga 560ti sc from stock to core 1010, shader 2020, memory 2120 and fan at 55%, stock voltage 1.050, gpu idles at 30s ran heaven for 26 stages and was fine and evga precision for a bit with no artifacts, it has more room to OC but i backed it down for the moment to mess around with other stuff so im pretty happy
