I would get shadow of the tomb raider becnchmakr which is in the demo you can download for free, or get heaven benchmark for free, or get 3dmarkThis is my first time ever overclocking, and just wanted to get a little bit more usage out of my GTX 970 before upgrading. I found a beginner's overclock which seems to give me another 7-8 fps or so in games but based on my temperatures it seems I can actually increase it even more.
The problem is, I'm not sure what to do. The beginner's OC mentioned to just start out by increasing core clock by +100 and memory clock by +400 which I've done, as you can see in the screenshot below.
Let's say I wanted to increase it a bit more... Would I just do +200 on core clock and +800 on memory clock to effectively double the OC that I'm running at the moment? I'm not sure how much the memory clock needs to be increased based on the core clock, but the beginner's overclock seems to indicate that you increase the memory clock by 4 times the core clock... Then again, I could just be guessing here.
I'm not looking to go absolutely crazy with the overclocking, but can you guys suggest any further OC to push a little more out of my GPU based on the temperatures shown in the screenshow below?
Many thanks guys.

Timespy which is free.
I would use heaven to test mem overclock. Just crank it till you see artifacting like spots flashing on screen while heaven is running… then just back down mem clocks some till flashing goes away.
For core overclocking go to settings and unlock voltage control. Then the voltage slider move that to max-100%
Then turn you core up 50mhz at a time.
you can use heaven for this too but I would run sottr bench after. You will probablyget 150-200 core and 500 on mem. Not sure howgood gddr5 mem is.
