Alright, I am pretty new to the forum and have not had much time around here. I own a brand new Dell with an Intel i-7 2600, 10GB of ram and an Nvidia gt 545. I am overclocking it from 870mhz factory core bus speed to 950mhz core bus speed, and 2Ghz shader with a 400mhz overclock on the memory (2400mhz). All of these setting run stable when playing graphics demanding games and bench marks/stress tests.

The 1GB GDDR5 545 card has an oversize fan and heat sync for the actual GPU, so this thing runs ice cold even when I have the settings ramped up.

450

The software I am using is the Nvidia control panel, along with MSI Kombustor for stress testing. The thing is though, the GPU runs SO cold, I have a feeling I can push it further, it's just my driver crashes every time I push it past my current settings. I am 99% sure the problem lies with the driver, and not the actual card. If anyone is wondering, I am using the drivers provided by Nvidia:http://www.geforce.com/Drivers

If anyone can help me understand where I can get some better compatible drivers, or just what I am doing wrong that would be great! smile.gif

If its crashing it probably needs more voltage. If you gave it more voltage and it is still crashing, that might be that chips limit despite whatever temperature it may be running.

It can happen, and it's not a driver issue. I once had a 9400 GT with such an oversized heatsink, i attached 2 80mm fans to it (zip ties FTW), overclocked like 33% (from stock 550c/1350s/400m), and still was kept under 60c in full load (on stock speeds it ran at 80c in furmark) But the driver would crash on me and PC would freeze on games if i were to make the jump from 729 MHz to 730 MHz.

I could not overvolt the card at all for some reason, so i was left with that, but if you've pushed voltages as far as it can go, it's the chip. Not all chips can reach lightning fast speeds no matter how cold they are and how much volts you run through them. Best proof are the 2500k. They're chips which can reach 5 GHz, but not all do it. And people who cannot reach 5 GHz have pretty high end cooling solutions (Silver Arrow, D14's, H80/H100, custom water loops). It's just the way the silicon is made.

Yeah, I suppose it is not so bad. And I am having the same experience, as in when ever I up the clock just a hair, I hit the limit of the card and it crashes. Though I am slightly disappointed with Nvidia on this one, because I would have expected a card like this one to be far more open to overclocking; that is the whole reason I bought that one (I am on a budget you know!)

I just replaced my Ati radeon hd 6750 with the PNY Verto GeForce GT 545 DDR3 w\ 1.5GB video memory and I noticed a difference already in my games. I want to overclock it but I'm not sure how. Would it be wise to just play with it by increasing each bar by a tick and try it out??

i got mine stable with the core clock at 870 (basically the oem cards speed) but i didn't touch the memory

If you max out the mv you can set the core clock to 1020 and memory to 2550. Stable for me but have to keep fans running at 100%. (Both case fans and Gpu fans)
