Overclocking GTX 970

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Would adding 150-200mhz core clock and 300-400 memory clock produce a significant performance boost?

 

Got a GeForce GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 Card and want to make sure to get the most performance out of it when the card starts weakening in games at 1080p.

 

Also would overclocking a GPU help in 1080p video editing, production, and rendering or not really because that's the main reason to overclock for me at this time

Possibly, depending on the game and program itself. My GTX 970 G1 Gaming's overclock (1329MHz stock boost, +90MHz core/490MHz memory) was noticeable when the card was pegged at 100%. However that really does depend on what your 970 can achieve, and whether or not you're hitting vRAM limits first.

I game on my gtx970 on ultra 1080p, vsync & AA on and get avg 45~55fps 

clock are 1342+110 /(or+150 on some games) and +500on mem.

I get fps gain for 2~5 when looking at fps counter but I cant tell the diff in real life without looking at numbers

Keep in mind when overclocking older cards that you don’t push them to far because the cooling my not be as effective as on newer cards.

The acx cooler on the 970 is good, you're mistaken with something like the fermi cards which pretty much only had blower coolers in it's lineup.

I'd go +200 on the core clock, and +500 on the memory, against reference speeds.

 

There's a lot of variables that can determine the benefit on a per game basis, but the higher the resolution the less significant the benefit can be. However you can run many games at 4K with an OC 970.

I got +200 and +195 on Core/Memory bearing in mind with no Voltage increase, I managed to get between 10 & 15% fps increase across most games although 

you're more likey to hit the dreadded Vram limit first. 

*Middle finger Nvidia*  ?

 

Does anyone know a good amount of Mv to increase core by? I don't want to damage my card by being reckless with something I dont Understand, I'm using a NZXT watercooler bracket with a H60 and don't see temps over 68* on shadow of the tomb raider on high 1080p

reference 970 base clock is just 1178mhz......+200 which translate to +50 for other custom stock gpu 1300mhz+
