Overclocking 970

So I have a GTX 970 (EVGA SC ACX 2.0) and was wondering if adding 2-4 mV will significantly reduce lifespan for the GPU. Thanks!

Lets get this on the table.

4mV is : 0.004 Volts.

Is that what you are trying to say?. If that's what you were aiming at, you are totally safe. But it wont do any difference at all, its margin of error territory.

Yeah, the card is already artificially limited to make sure you can't kill or significantly reduce the lifespan with extra voltage on the stock vbios. I would say you should try to find your max overclock without adding voltage, and then start creeping the clocks up by +10mhz and adding +10mv when it starts becoming unstable. Good 970's will generally reach up into the upper 1400's to low 1500's.

Wait. Will gpu overclocks from let's say MSI Afterburner last 24/7 or nah?

Here is what I got stable without crashing in any stress tests.

 

Core voltatge: +3mv

Power Limit: 102%

Max Temp: 81 C

Core Clock: +200mhz (1365 core clock)

Memory Clock: +400mhz (1517 boost clock)

Fan Speed: 33%

Do overclocks last 24/7 for my GPU. I have a EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 and got it overclocked and stable on stress tests. Also, I feel like I'm doing something wrong with my tests. In MSI Afterburner, I added 200mhz (1365mhz-1517mhz) to core clock and 400mhz to memory clock while adding 3mV of power. I set fan speed to 33% and ran Furmark while staying under 80 C without crashing. I feel like these numbers are too good or are they normal and make sense?

well then... my 970 wouldnt move a MHz without a new cooler -_- as long as you dont see any artifacting in stresstests then its fine. 80C is a bit hot but its fine

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.
