Overclocking questions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone, 

So I've been overclocking my MSI 2060 SUPER GAMING X and ended up stable (Tested with two benchmarks and half hour each)  with a +120 Core clock and a +1130 Memory Clock. I myself think the memory clock is excessive and may cause performance issues in games. I also would rather get more performance on the core clock so should I lower the memory clock to around 750 and continue messing with the core clock? Also what does the core voltage slider mean on afterburner as I have it to 100% and am not sure if it affects the lifespan of the card or something similiar.

If its stable after 20 minutes in Kombuster, its good. 

but as a general rule of thumb, if you feel uneasy with it, dial it back. An extra 2/3 FPS arent worth a dead GPU.

Yes.  AMEN!


I'm very generous with the likes I give out on here; you should be, too.

 

I never believed in orthopedic inserts, but then I got a pair.  Now, I stand corrected. 

 

My friend gave me his Epi-pen as he was dying.  It seemed very important to him that I have it.

 

Why do cows wear bells?

Because their horns don't work.

Besides, can you really tell the difference between AAx8 and AAx16?  Lower your settings a minuscule amount and boost your peace of mind.

play with the mem clocks, sometimes less is better for performance. its not error correcting per se but it does have ways to reverse errors in the memory output and too heavy of an overclock can mean that it spends too many clock cycles correcting artifacts
