If that actually works with the settings you have without crashing or creating artifacts, you are already way ahead of the game.

1Ghz on stock voltage is impressive.

Have you load tested it or gamed with it yet?

Really . Thats great to hear .

ive been playing arma 2 . OA and like dayz


I will try later tonight on BF3 and mw3 and others.

How doyou know if its creating artifacts ??

and i have no crashing or problems yet .
Ill post up on any little things .

The first concern is temp. Then it's lifespan reduction.

As you increase voltage and/or speed your temps will go up. You can use a custom fan profile in the settings menu of afterburner to help keep temps down.

More voltage = more wear and tear on the silicon. How much isn't really known. If a GPU can last 15 years at stock voltage and x voltage lowers that down to 10 years, who cares? But if x voltage lowers it to 1 or two years, then many people have issues with a lifespan that short. I have seen no collection of scientific data points to nail down these values. Just anecdotes.

Both temps and voltages are a bit subjective.

For max safe 24/7 voltage, I have seen 1.050v as the most popular.

For temps many recommend staying under 80C.

I prefer to stay at stock voltage unless and until I see a need for more FPS.

For temps, I picked 70C as my upper limit.

Okay well i changed my Voltage to 1050 , And its running the same temp as before.

What about my Power limit ?

The power limit allows you to pull more power than stock TDP.
