Opinions about my MSI 560 Ti overclock! Thanks!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Last night I upped core from 880 to 1000 and the shader went to 2000 to match the core. To help it stabilize I upped volts to 1.025(hopefully not messing up the decimal I'm on my iPhone) I used MSIs utility and ran the heat benchmark for 35 minutes at 1920x1080 DX11 with the heat capping at 66-67C. The fans I upped by quite a bit having them hit 100% at 63C - any game brings the temp up to 60-66 depending on the game (crysiS 2 is the 66) but doesnt seem to exceed that. Also from the small bump performance has increased in amazing fashion- especially with PhysX on high for mafia 2 for example prior to OC high PhysX would result in a crawling FPS during shootouts etc and now it's smooth as silk. The temp jumped up about 10 degrees in everything I am just making sure these stats are good to continue with - no crash. no artifacts etc just a loud fan haha. Pc has 16 gigs of 1666 ripjaws, AMD 1090T black edition- and a MSI gd70 mobo with 650 watt antec PSU. How does it look guys

If it's stable then count yourself lucky, that is a very good OC at a low voltage. If you do find it to be unstable in some of your games then just make small voltage bumps gradually until you find stability because you have plenty of voltage headroom to work with. Good luck and have fun.

If your stable with just those volts, I'd say aim for a higher core

Yea, you certainly could try and go higher, you would very likely need additional voltage though. I would probably sit at 1GHz for a little while and play all your normal games for a day or two and then bump up the voltage a bit and try 1015, then 1035 etc. The only drawback of going higher clocks and voltage would be a little bit more heat because you mentioned your fans already running at 100% so noise will be the same. Regarding temps I would say that you have about 10+C degrees of headroom there, but I personally wouldn't want to see much higher than 78-80C in games. Good luck, let see if you can hit 1050MHz!!!

While yes it has been stable during gaming and the burn test, should I raise the volts as first mentioned for increased stability and if so, how much- after that I shall look into upping the core further

If it's stable where it's at... leave it alone.

What you'll find is by raising voltage, you'll hit a thermal ceiling for your VRM's, even if your core temps seems to be ok. At that point, no amount of voltage will stabilize the clock.

Just for reference... I had to use 1.125v for 985 / 1970 / 2400 for my Asus. And those were just semi-stable benching clocks.

I think you're good where you're at...

If you are stable where you are then I would not increase voltage for that clock speed. I would play on it for a day or two to really make sure it's where you want it to be. After that I would try raising the voltage one or two notches, I think that maybe 1.050V sounds good, and see if you can hit maybe 1015 stable at that voltage, then if that is stable then try 1025, if it's not stable try bumping up the voltage to 1.062V and retest. Repeat untill you find your max. Good luck.

you can always settle at a lower clock, but go for more!!!


i want to do a little more 3dmark benching. im at 1025mhz@1.07v, but i want to get to 1050mhz+ at maybe 1.1v if temps permit.


download the free version of 3dmark 11 and vantage. see what you can get.

hi, I have a Gigabyte GV-N560OC-1GI GTX 560Ti,overclocked 980/2200 but I have to set 1.150v to get stable overclock, 1.150v is safe?

Seems rather high?? I am not an expert though I jut go with what MSI afterburner allows since it doesn't void any type of warranty or whatever it would void, I am not sure what the max is on the software but my setting is close toward the end (but a little goes a long way) run furmark's burn benchmark and see if your gpu blows up and melts into our mono. . About 3Dmark11 - sure I'll grab and test that I've been doing the heaven benchmark with max tessellation and aa/as at 1920x1080
