Closed Help with overclocking my gtx460 Tags: Graphics Cards Overclocking Graphics Last response: February 20, 2012 7:53 PM in Graphics & Displays Share ironarrow February 20, 2012 5:19:02 PM I want to over clock my MSI GTX460 cyclone 768mb. This will be the first time I have done this so I am unsure of how to go about it. 1. Is thsi card even worth overclocking? 2. If it is how do I go about it. 3. Want a decent increase if possable, while staying safe as far as increases are concered. I allready downloaded the Afterburner software. My card is currenty at(think these are the number needed): Core clock 725 Memory clock 1800 Shader clock 1451 Under a stress test the temp was maxing at 52 C (normaly sitting at 46-47C playing BF3) Thanks for helping me out More about : overclocking gtx460 Best solution anort3 a c 174 U Graphics card a c 91 K Overclocking February 20, 2012 5:40:34 PM I believe the 768MB version overclocks as well as the 1GB version I have. You should be able to hit 800-1600-2000 pretty easily and that should give you a decent performance increase. My EVGA GTX 460 1GB has been clocked at 840-1680-2000 since I bought it the week the GTX 460 was released. Stock voltage. Just keep your max temps when testing with Furmark under about 80C and you should be fine. Technically you can even go higher with the temps but thats about as high as I am comfortable with. ironarrow February 20, 2012 6:07:37 PM I set it at those settings and got a 3fps increase on the benchmark test does that sound about right? Also my temp went from 52 to 56. Related resources GTX460 Auto Overclock /Underclock. - Forum In a GTX460 768Mb the 2600k CPU really help raising FPS? - Forum GTX460 on CM elite 460W PSU?
