Has anyone fried there cards with using the "nvidia OC Scanner"?

So i have a really REALLY bad trauma of overclocking videocards. I overclocked my GTX 570 and stress tested with furmark.
Each time it killed the card. The final time even smoke came from PC. and it stank. So I vouched to never ever ever overclock cuz it scared me.
I got a new 570 THREE times and never overclocked in my life again.


Im reading that nvidia released an OC Scanner function via msi afterburner.
Which should automate the overclocking...
However my question is, has anyone experienced any problems withsoever with applying an overclock that came from this "OC scanner"?
How safe is it?

So was reading this:
"NVIDIA PR States OC Scanner does NOT Void your RTX Warranty. ... We did reach out to verify with NVIDIA PR, and they have specifically told us that its yet-to-be-released OC Scanner tool will not void your warranty. "

I kinda don't want to overclock. but I will be playing on 4k. And every frame won is kinda great.. but yeah.

I ordered the INNO3D RTX 2080 OC x2 Instead I got the INNO3D RTX 2080 OC x3.
So I lucked out I guess on that part for a bit.

Furmark killed your card, not OCing. Furmark is called a power virus for a reason.

OC manually. You can figure out your max stable GPU OC with Afterburner and Unigine Heaven in 10 minutes tops.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)

Uhh if it's known that furmark causes this then I assume they are aware and would have fixed this? Idk seems weird to create a benchmark/stabillity app that literally kills your gpu ? xD But okay. damn furkmark then

Manual is too much stress for me, as you need to do stabillity test your stuff aswell for a good while and do it with 1-2 mhz increments. etc. Veryyyy time consuming process if you really want to know if it's stable.

Anyway I won't be manually overclocking at all. For my processor I will try.
But graphics.. Nope lol.

But let's say that this automatic 'OC scan tool" is now so great in its job, and like almost no one experiences problems with it.
I might give it a try.
Thus im really curious as to if there are any bad stories floating around of JUST using the "OC scan tool".

Furmark does exactly what it was meant to do, if you chose to apply it to a card while overclocking it that's your fault for not knowing what you were doing three times in a row. That's the reason GPUs are idiot proof now and those of us that know how to overvolt can no longer do so on our Nvidia cards...no BIOS control either. Thanks.

How is overclocking to stressful for you? Moving a slider while running Heaven is too hard? 1-2mhz increments? What would even be the point of a 1-2mhz OC?
The OC scanner is ok but leaves a lot on the table.
Move the slider while running a nonsynthetic load till it crashes then back off. Play games, if it crashes back off some more. Simple.

GPU manufacturer's have had to integrate a feature into their drivers to reduce GPU speed and power when it detects Furmark is running because of how many people were damaging their cards with it. You shouldn't use Furmark for stress testing overclock's in most cases, especially when your temps and/or voltages are already high. Do what was suggested above, run a Unigine heaven/superposition test or even Firestrike's stress test on 3Dmark.

Okay cool so don't use furmark.

Now as to use of the "OC scanner"
Has anyone seen reports of people having their cards Die on them with it?

In my limited experience the OC Scanner function in Afterburner is garbage. Every "curve" it has applied has led to crash after crash. I must admit though, the 1080ti I have right now is the only card I've ever owned that won't take any OC whatsoever.

Dude. Omg. Just use Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 to test the stability of your overclock.

Also, what is the brand and model of your power supply?


Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.
