To do so, the fan speed must be increased, causing more noise. It does void the warranty, but if you change it back to stock speeds, there's not really any way of telling if it's been overclocked. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Does overclocking increase the heat/noise a GPU produces?> Related ressources: ForumGTX 460: Would a factory-OC model produce more heat/noise ?
