Need HELP optimizing my old RIG

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I recently bought a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB gcard for my old rig.

The reason I choose this is because I need a card that my motherboard and CPU can support.

This is the only one I can find that doesn't need an 8 pin connector and compatible with the old rig without bottlenecking.

 

My Rig:

CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-2120 Processor

GCard: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB

RAM: (2x) 4gb Kingston DDR3 1600mhz

Motherboard: ECS H61H2-M12

PSU: Generic 700w power supply 600watts ORION ATX-600w

plus 2 fans (1 intake, 1 outtake)

 

MY question is,

 

what are the best optimization/settings for this kind of rig with and without overclocking? (no water-cooling)

 

Advance thanks for those who reply.

Might be a better idea to just save up for a better PSU so that you don't get limited in upgrades by it, a 700w without a pci-e cable usually means it's garbage.

All you could do is overclock gpu in afterburner

 

you cannot over your I3 with h61, and whole setup is very cool at stock, no extra cooling needed.

you already filled all ram slot, so no worthy upgrade here as well.

add ssd for storage/ os? note that h61 only limits to sata3 3gb~ that will limit to half  of sata ssd max speed...

For those who are concerned about the PSU, double-checked and it's a 600watts ORION ATX-600w, I didn't bother checking when making this thread since the PSU is not known worldwide (by most people, "generic").

Thanks for answering the main question. Can I really OC the gpu with no extra cooling needed? By how much? Do you have any preference of threshold?

sure, just monitor the temp as you go, look for other people oc for reference.

as for cooling, if temp easily goes p to 80C+, do some serious cleaning/ replace thermal paste is all effort you need
