I picked a used ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 for $120 so I've decided this will be my first try at overclocking. Seller said he never overclocked it but was running SLI with another.
I read in another thread from last year on this forum:
"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
2200 Mem Clock
Temps dont go past 70 degree's under MSI Kombustor fans set to auto around the 68% mark"
I've copied those settings (and also set the fan to max so heat wouldn't be a factor). My temp never went over 40C but my drivers are crashing in WoW (Ultra) after few minutes.
Do you think increasing the voltage would help? If so, what should I increase it to and what would be the max voltage you would run to the card?
When you OC you should take baby steps. Don't go up to your goal immediately. Incrementely increase the core then the memory then the core... Do a stress test after each incrememnt to ensure stability and temperatures.
