i am scared to death to screw up my pc with msi afterburner lol

so i just installed it and it shows me

core voltage (mV)
power limit (%) 100
cor clock (MHz) 0
memory clock (MHz) 0
fan speed (%) 30

so tll me what i should do please

set by step

dont touch core voltage and power limit..

to overclock GPU just
raise core clock ...
and memory clock.
that all. the more u raise the more it OC..
good luck


o its you again :) 

ok il try it one min

like knowing my specs or something?

no just raise that two bars...
that all,

you could google what other people are getting their core and mem up to without voltage increase and set yours to say 20mhz below that. run msi kombustor burn in test for about 10 or more mins and see what your maximum temps were. that is as much as i know about overclocking on stock voltage. if the temps stay below 70C then i would say you are good. im not a pro overclocker but i know this is generally the safe way to do it

it will not be on 0.
its on like the default clock speed ,
see this.

and raise it till the time u get 75 degree or below temp at the time of gaming :) 


im so confused?

how do i know if it reached 75 degrees

can you please show me a another pic showing a guy with the gtx660ti doing it? to see all the % he made in the msi burner please

run MSI after burner.
then click setings (bottom right)
then click on "monitering"..
then click on the "tick" to enable GPU temperature.
and make sure "show on on scree display is ebaled too" ( it will be on same screen 3rd last option :)  )
click ok.
u can do same procedure to enable GPU usage,fan speed and FPS ...

(the moment u run game temperature will be shown on top left corner)
good luck


i couldnt find the ''tick'' box on monitoring? mind helping me out again lol

nevermind that i just set it up to 132 for core clock and other one memory clock is set to 530

is this ok for the gtx 660ti or should it be higher?

nevermind that i just set it up to 150 for core clock and other one memory clock is set to 530

and whats the Shader clock? i dont have it can i unhide this and will it boost the fps if i use it?

yes its ok...


so i applied and saved anything else i need to do?
September 13, 2013 5:58:56 AM

mhtsgr9 said:
no ..
just check the temp..
i tell u the procedure above..
if the temp reaches above 75 while gaming.
then decrease memory clock a lil bit ..

and dont forget to select the best answer BRO :) 
members will appreciate that


o dont worry you'll be getting the best answer :) 

but before that i wanna see the changes k :)

To test the the overclock fully then i would suggest downloading a gpu stress tester like msi kombustor or furmark. They will have a gpu temp graph on screen during the test. If you arent seeing much change it could be your cpu bottlenecking performane of the card. I used to have an old core 2 quad and in many games it would bottleneck my hd 6850 and not let it get more than 80% under load

Only go up a little bit at a time, like 10mhz. Keep an eye on your temps, don't let your gpu pass 80 degrees. If it does or you see graphics glitches, you went to far.
