i overclock my superclocked 550ti while gaming.
though ANYTIME you overclock you do take a risk! that is why it is advisable to understand what you're doing BEFORE you do it :)

I OC my cpu but i dont understand the whole voltage thin on the GPU's should i download the OC scanner from evga??

yes. i also use precisionX

if it is already factory overclocked i wouldn't really fiddle with the volts; already been tweaked. i goofed around and upped my core from 981 to 1066 but would crash from time to time. i settled down to 1033 with about the same fps as 1066 and things are running smooth.

now remember. those are the clocks on my 550ti not your 560 . . .

I have my Asus GTX 560 DCII OC OC'd to a modest 950/1900/2100 @ 1.062V from a stock 850/1700/2100 @ 1.012V, so you can see that voltage bumps are very small with GPU's (50 mV in this case). Of course there's always risk involved, but most OC programs won't let you go too far with the voltage without some modification, so you should be fine.

The cooling for my particular card is so good though, that I could go much further, if I wanted/needed to. I'm still in the upper 60's in Furmark with my current OC. I have an aggressive fan profile set, but still...

Also, don't even worry about OC'ing the VRAM because there's there's very little performance gain in it. Almost all of the performance gain will be from a Core/Shader OC.

I do not think that you will accomplish much with an already overclocked card. But if you are going to OC the card, watch your GPU temps very carefully.

i went from 85fps on the EVGA oc scanner to 94 im running the stress test and my temps stay at 64c on full load with a gpu clock of 903 and memory clock of 2090
