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.
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!
