New to OC'ing and need advice

November 20, 2012 7:26:32 PM

Hi All,
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
2000 Shader
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) and my temp never went over 40C but my drivers are crashing in WoW (Ultra) after about 5-10 min.

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?
