Sparkle GTX 460 1GB First Time OC. Need Tips & Advice. MSI Afterburner & Kombustor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey folks, this is my first time OCing my video card. Need some tips and advice.

I have a Sparkle GTX 460 1GB (Purple fan). Don't really know much about OCing except doing some reading here and there.

I won't be messing with the voltages. I know how to OC the card but how do I test it for stability in Kombustor?

There's so many options. My guess is to use the Burn-in test, D3D11, native resolution, 8x MSAA, Post-FX, Xtreme burn-in, and fullscreen. Run the Burn-in test and check for artifacts? How long should I run it? Should I try 4x MSAA, windowed mode, or actually run the benchmarks? What about temps?

Current settings are at

Core: 850MHz
Shader: 1700MHz
Memory: 3600MHz

Thanks.
