So I will be overclocking my two gtx 770's. So my problem is, what is safe for me to overclock them to?

Will this be safe?


Core Clock: 1181 MHz
Boost Clock: 1280 MHz
Memory Clock: 7560MHz

I got two gigabyte geforce gtx 770 cuda. Should I overclock them more or less?

Those numbers seem to be a bit higher to me. Crossing 1.10 GHz with Nvidia GPUs is not a good idea since they are not known to be good overclockers.

Get Core clock to 1100 MHz
Boost clock to 1175 MHz
Memory clock to 7100 MHz

In my opinion that should not be too stressful on the GPU and should be adequate enough. If you wanted to overclock your GPU you should have gone for ATI side since they overclock very well.

Another reason not to overclock 'two' GTX 770s is that they do not need to be overclocked too high. A 770 combo can literally max out all the games on 1440p display except Crysis 3 (You can not max out Crysis 3 even with Quad Titan SLI with 60 FPS) with no problems so a decent overclock is advised.

The GTX 770 and all other 700 series cards currently on the market are known to be VERY stable overclockers in part due to GPU Boost 2.0. It all depends on your cooler but if you google "GTX 770 Review" you'll get various reviews of different coolers and how well they overclock. Personal fav is the GTX 770 ACX SC http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/5570/evga-geforce-gtx-... It achieves clocks that you laid out there!

Follow some of the guides here and on other websites. When overclocking you want to go up in increments and check the results. Never just overclock to the max and hope it will work that is never a good idea. Each chip will have its max overclock that it can do even from the same make/model.

Ok, maybe you should think about this.....why are you overclocking? 2 x 760's should be more than enough power for anything.

yes, but AMD/ATI's multi-card solution is absolute crap, any overclocking would be cancelled out by crossfire issues.

The OP wants a GTX 770 and asked if they could achieve those clocks and nothing more. Leave AMD/Nvidia arguments out of this and also SLI/Single card arguments are invalid.

To the OP yes you can achieve those clocks but make sure you get a solid cooling system on that card i.e Non-Reference cards.

But how many more fps will i get ingames if I overclock them? In battlefield 3 if I get 130 in average without overclocked them, what will my average be if I overclock them to what you said?

Look I am just going towards the safe side here.

No matter even if a game runs at 500 FPS, you would see only 60 FPS in your monitor. Anything higher than that would be cancelled because 95% of the monitors used by people operate at 60 Hz and the rest 5% at 120 Hz. This means that a monitor will either refresh its screen 60 times in 1 second (That means 60 Frames Per Second, Nothing higher than that) or 120 times.

In the latter case you need a 120 Hz monitor to see the smoothness shown by your card. If you have a 60 Hz monitor, your experience would be exactly same no matter the FPS as long as it stays higher than 60 FPS. Two GTX 770s have hell a lot of power. They do not need to be overclocked for any possible reason.

One more thing, 60 FPS is very very smooth and you literally do not need anything smoother than that. People overclock their cards because they see lag, etc. If there is no lag while playing and its buttery smooth, no need to OC and test you card's limits. Stay on the safe side and you would be fine. No need to take chances and get higher clock speeds. ^^
