Results of my first overclock attempt using MSI AB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I did my first over clock today. I tested using OCCT for errors.

Card: MSI cyclone 460 768D5

Current OC

Core Voltage (mV): 1037
Core Clock: 850
Shader Clock: 1700
Memory: 1800 [untouched]
Fan set to 100%
Temp: 66c full load: steady with air conditioner on.
OCCT: running 4000+ seconds 0 errors

notes: Heat may be an issue with out A/C on
Had to increase voltage by 24 to get it stable at 850.

Question: I saved the original settings as profile 1. Will it hurt my card to switch from original to new settings with out inching the speed up slowly? I'm not ready to apply this setting permanently till I know it can handle gaming in day time temps.

No, you can change your profile any time you want.
Just save your settings into it, and it will be ready for use.

I see you got some temp problems. 66°C with 100% fan? Does the noise bother you?

Its not loud at all. My house gets anywhere from 74-85 degrees depending on the weather. [I'm in Florida] the 66c at full load is better than my old card. Idle, the 460 runs at 30c. I thought this was a good thing? I also lowered the fan to 90% with no discernible difference.

Its funny, I have.... a cpu fan, 5 case fans, gpu fan....and of course the psu has a fan. My machine is super quiet. It might rattle if the case side is loose....but as far as normal use this build is the quietest I've ever had. I can only imagine the silence I would have with an updated case.

My son's build is rather quiet too....unless he changes the settings and puts it to sleep....initial start up can be a little loud on his pc.
