I recently just purchased the EVGA GTX 260 overclocked version, and hoping to overclock it some more. But I don't know where to start. I've downloaded precision from the EVGA website. What program do I use to test if the settings are stable? What are safe temps for GPUs?
Well I have this card and have it at 650/1400/1008 The memory on mine could not go much further i could do a little better but it already gets my office to 80 deg F if i play for a few hours... fur mark will max it out to see if stability is rock solid but for real just go play a game for a while, a video card is hardly ever maxed out for long periods of time unless you fold or something..
aim for gaming load to be under 80C, not furmark as u will NEVER get the gpu that hot while gaming with 100% gpu load. keep the fan on auto. u can easily get ~15% OC with fan on auto and also having it under 75~C
