Hey guys, I'm kind of new to the whole Overclocking scene. I was hoping somebody could help me. Basically, I'm running a 650 Watt Gold PSU and the EVGA GTX 560 Ti as I said in the title. I downloaded MSI Afterburner and I was wondering if somebody has a guide for Overclocking this specific card. I've never overclocked anything before and I don't want to brick anything. I read somewhere that you "just have to play around" with the settings, but doesn't that seem a little risky? If you need anymore specs from me, just ask. Thanks in advance
Can you explain to me what the voltage does, and do you recommend that I just set my settings to your settings? Would that work, or are there other factors involved despite us having the same card. Also, what is Power Limit (%)?
It is not quite that simple.
Every piece of silicone is different. What might be stable on one system might not be on another system.
Take it simple and slow.
As stated above. Overclock and test.
Overclock a little more and test.
Only change one setting at a time.Gpu core clocks 5 to 10 mhz eac time and test.
When you start getting errors then you raise the voltage slightly and retest
There is no set and go overclocking.
The limits of each piece of silicone will be different. Some overclock like crazy and others only overclock a few mhz before errors.
The most important thing is to make sure it does not overheat.
When testing always check max temperature.
Hi, this is an old..ish thread, but i had some use of this - however - I'm using stock fan on the graphics card and the temp goes up to 42 min 79 max at only 740/1900
Is'nt that wierd? Anyone know what can cause this?
