Overclocking GPU

Hey

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming review - Overclocking The Graphics Card
i gave it a try to change the numbers on the sliders but the thing is they will not save for example when i set the Core clock to 150+ as that web site says it stays on 147+ same thing with the mem clock,i've never done a OC myself so im pretty lost here with what to do..and i really wanna do this looking at the difference between the stock and overclocked one,..

Man that is one nice rig you have! Try reinstalling afterburner, or maybe try another program like precision x, or firestorm.

Using GIGABYTE OC GURU you have to lock it in and once you reboot you must hit the lock one more time but upon booting you will get a OC GURU message stating to go back to stock clocks if you click it, Don't click it or click the red X open up OC GURU and lock it again

It did not work with Precision x,the driver crashed but it went perfect with the GIGABYTE OC GURU but theres still something that's not adding up to me... i used the same sets from the overclock page(guru3d) but i did not get the same as they did with the Boost Clock they have it at 1516 when i applied the same amount i got 1479 same with the mem clock applying what they said but i have it 7510 when they have it on 8002,what im i missing here ? did i do something wrong ?
and heres a screenshot from GPUZ and GIGABYTE OC GURU,if you guys can take a look and see if its all fine and wont end up getting my card dead or something ....



and thank you so much for the effort guys very appreciated.

Not all cards will match the same clocks because the test cards have different Bios
Also take into count you might need to up the voltage to stablize it
