Not sure about OC

Now I'm under the impression that only the video card and cpu can be O/C'd. I' am planning on getting a 2nd gtx 670 ftw in 6-9 months. Is there a safe O/C level i can do with out getting a W/C? This is my system, and it will if needed i will max out the fans for the case, im just not comfortable with liquid being in my brand new system. Thanks for your help.

  1. Also if someone has a link that shows someone how to over clock that would be a bonus, thanks.
  2. Ivy bridge overclocking is just like sandy bridge overclocking, there is a guide sticky at the top of the overclocking forum, start there and come back when you have specific questions. If you need more guides just use google, it is always a good idea to read several guides to make sure that all the info is matching up and makes sense to you.

    I used this for my video card(same as yours.) my overclock didnt get that high. I see some got a 200 mhz gpu overclock. i could only get 115 mhz overclock. just one of those, luck of the draw scenarios!
