Hi guys, my friend came over today and overclocked my gpu for me. He said that the following settings would be safe, but I'm ignorant about GPU voltage settings myself so I thought I should run it by you guys. Will these settings lower my card's lifespan?

While you get to answering that. For your last question, yes it will.
As soon as you increase voltage lifespan is reduced, thats why we use it so sparingly.

My suggestion to people is to OC their GPU from scratch themselves because what you get from a given voltage may not be the same as what your friend got. And if you can lower voltage with same clock rate. Why the hell not?

you may find with the power limit you wont be able to reach anything unsafe. that is why they put the power limit there. If you go too much on voltage and clock speed, you will get lower performance as it automatically cuts back the boost clock. overcome that by doing this http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tom...

Yup I only got this card the other day. Thanks for the input guys, I'll have a read through that tutorial and see if I can work this out.

What would indicate that I need to increase the voltage supplied to the card? Artifacts in games?

test your gpu through runs of Unigene. if unigene either crashes or you BSOD, then its not stable.

Use Unique Heaven benchmark to stress test the GPU after raising clock, if no BSODS or restarts or artifacts occur, increase again till you get on of those. Then SLIGHTLY increase voltage until you get stability at a given clock. The fewer the better.

Continue process while keeping an eye on temps, do not exceed 100C!!!

Thanks for the help guys, I'm getting a stable 200 MHz OC without raising the voltage at all :)

Wow, I was only able to get 132 mhz on the core, but I got 800 mhz on the memory with no voltage increase.

Old thread, but yeah, that's not bad. I was only able to get a measly 90 mhz on my ASUS DirectCU II at stock voltage.
