1060 SSC Overclock

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm about to overclock my gpu for the first time because it's hard bottlenecking my cpu. I'm watching Jayz' video on it because it seems like a good, indepth tutorial. Which benchmark would you suggest I use while overclocking? I am going for more frames in siege and modern warfare.

I tend to use unigine heaven or valley with mine. 
 

Haven’t really pushed my 1060ssc but max power and voltage has it boost to 2000.

If I use the VF curve tuner in precision X1, am I supposed to have the “BOOST CLOCK” feature on? Or will it push the card automatically with the scan?

Could just overclock the old fashioned way. I’m sure Jay has done a video on that.

I guess. No one has really done a video about the vf curve tuner. It seems really helpful but I don’t really feel like bricking anything.

Well it isn’t gonna dance anything and I don’t think you’ll see people doing a video of the new precision xoc stuff on an older card.

I'm using Precision X1 because it auto updated to that on my Steam. I got a test result of +52 so I put that in. I then tested it to make sure it was stable and it came up as 90. I don't know what 90 means....

And how would you overclock the memory? Is there a safe way?

I don’t use that so I couldn’t tell you. I overclock and test with a benchmark. Not some auto oc thing.

You do the same as the core clock. Increase and test. All ways are safe.

Okay, is there any chance that my voltage is limiting my core clock. I think 52 is about good, I'm probably going to go down to 50 to be safe. I hear voltage can kill a card so I have no idea what to do. Some people online say they push both sliders all the way to the right and that makes no sense.

Voltage can’t kill it as you can only turn it up so far. Heat is the real issue. But that cooler is plenty for that cars being the same on on the 1080. 
50 is nothing. What does the card actually boost to?

 

Move the power to max along with the voltage and then oc. Once you find the max it’s stable at you can lower the voltage.

The highest I've seen it get is 2075 while it is "Scanning". It always drops back down immediately to around 2050 so I'm assuming that 2075 is too high. Right now I'm testing the +50mhz and it's at 1050 mV while at 2012mhz. So increase the voltage by 100 and try +100?

You can do what ever you want. It isn’t gonna mess anything up. 
But like I already said, I don’t use the scanner. I do it with an actual benchmark.

I have Heaven open aswell. I'm using that to test whether it's crashing or not. The +50mhz only made it go from 1564 to like 1610 so I kind of want to push it more.

Jesus seems like something is wrong but maybe the steps on the 1060 are setup that way. Can you try with the fans set to max?

Yea I can. It didn't surprise me all that much though because it's only like a 4% increase in clock speed so I didn't expect a big jump. Is that now how it works?

I just tried +100mhz and 100 voltage and it crashed. I dropped it to +80mhz and 100 voltage and got a 1621. I probably should turn off gsync but I'm not sure if that matters.

Well I’m more concerned about the base clocks. Pretty sure it’s supposed to be a lot higher than that.

This is the 1060 https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/evga-gtx-1060-ssc-acx-3-0.b3834. I just tried +100 and 100 voltage and it crashed. +80 just worked and I got a 1621. I'm now rerunning it with gsync off. The settings are DX 11, Ultra Quality, Extreme Tesselation, x8 AA, 1920x1080.

The rerun got a 1627.

Yea and notice the boost say 1800+

You should be able to do the same. So there’s an issue somewhere if you are only hitting 1600

Oh nononono. I'm sorry. When I was saying 1564 and 1610 I was talking about the benchmark scores. The boost clocks were around 2012 with no adjustment.

Well the score doesn’t mean much without the settings to compare against. 
Better to compare the actual cards speed at stock boost and what ever you manage to oc it too.
