Gtx 560 ti OC question

Hi all,
I'm planning on buying a MSI GTX 560-ti Twin Frozr II/OC which is at 880mhz. But i've read that it's possible to OC them to 900 or more, but since i'm don't know anything about overclocking GPU's i'm wondering if i need an aftermarket cooler like with CPU's or if the stock one is good enough?

thanks in advance!

  1. No after market cooler is required to clock upwards of 950. The Twin Frozr is a superior cooling design.
  2. I have a Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti SOC Ed. and it comes with a factory overclock of 950Mhz on the core. Though I have yet to need doing so, apparently they it can handle ~1GHz (core clock). At standard fan rates (40-60%) you can barely hear them, at maximum fan speed, there is still very little audible noise; they're quieter than my case fans. This is on account on the custom cooler Gigabyte use, very similar to the Twin Frozr II, so it should be easily sufficient for a little overclocking.

    Good luck OC'ing :)

  3. I have a Gigabyte 560Ti OC edition (NOT SOC edition), it came stock with 900MHz core.

    (over-clocked using MSI afterburner)
    Its now sitting stable at:

    1GHz Core Clock
    2000 Shader
    2200 Mem Clock

    Temps dont go past 70 degree's under MSI Kombustor fans set to auto around the 68% mark
  4. @ AdrianPerry
    Have you changed the GPU or Memory Voltage at all? Or still set at auto?
    Also, 2200 on the That's almost a 100% increase! I was thinking that when I decide to OC it (probably when BF3 comes out, lol) I'd bring it up to 1GHz on the core, 2GHz Shader and 1.5 Memory - will that require an adjustment of the voltages, or anything other than changing than clock speeds?
  5. thanks for all your help, overclocing shouldn't be a problem i hear :P
    I don't have it yet BTW, but it should arrive in a week or so.
