Windows 7: Overclocking GPU

For gpu overclocking, I normally OC the core as much as possible on STOCK voltage. This ensures minimal gained heat and no voltage degration. For memory, I just oc a considerable amount. No touching voltages and not too high of a clock. My nenext step would be adding voltage. Idk about the new cards, but stock 780s are voltage limited to 1.2v which is nothing to worry about so as long as temps are under control. When u test for stability, use games that are not incredibly tataxing on the gpu. For me, bf4 would run all day at 1257mhz, but bioshock and similiar games were only stable at 1202mhz. The clocks and temps other people get will not be yours exactly.

Also, on my 780, adding voltage from stock to max only yielded a 3-4fps gain at 1080p. About a 40-50mhz gain. So for me, it wasn't worth the added heat, voltage degration, and noise.

VXER, overclocking is really tricky. I would do it for benchmarking, but leave it at stock for gaming as it is very powerful at stock. What game is crashing?

I think i've found out the problem (that's if what i think is what it is),whats going on here is that the clocks are getting much more in game which crashes the game, now this is what i have for the overclocks as seen in GPUZ base clock is 1328 and boost clock is 1429 but in game its 1580,wtf also the mem clock in GPUZ says 1789 and ingame i can see 3969..is this also doing the same thing ? or have i got this wrong ?


so is there something wrong with the clocks ? wellllllllllllllp

Dude:thanks man i took a look over there and did a thread but simply got no help.the game is FC3..thing is overclcoking this card can give me an extra 10 frames and some games even more,u feel me ?

Yes, what you set the actual clocks to are not the in-game clocks. In game clocks are higher because of GPU boost 2.0

So what can i do here ? what do i do to get this card on these clocks :
Core Clock 1328 MHz
Boost Clock: 1516 MHz
Memory Clock: 8002 MHz

...?

ok i dont mean this in a bad way, but get out of your mind that your card will be able to achieve the exact settings as another person's card. every single card is different.

so with that said, do this:

1) return everything to stock settings
2) turn up the core clock +100MHz in MSI Afterbuner
2a) Turn the power % limit up to max, and set tempature target at 80C.
2b) Set temperature as the priority.
3) hit apply
4) Run a series of 3 games for about 15 mins each. if there are no crashes or artifacts VVV
5) Keep turning up the core clock by 10MHz until it crashes or artifacts in game. after it does turn down the clock by 15MHz.
6) Turn the memory clock up to +300MHz in afterburner.
7) hit apply and enjoy your games.
8) If there is crashing or artifacting, keep turning down the clocks until there is no more crashing.

Keep temperatures below 80C, and dont touch voltage (Theres no need to).

The clocks you see in game are your ACTUAL clocks. what you see in GPUz is just base and boost clocks.
for instance, my GPUz says my boost clock is 1141MHz, but my ingame clock is 1202MHz.
