Go to solution Solved by DevanArianne,

Yes, you can overclock ANY graphics card.

The difference between those two cards is the Zotac comes at STOCK clock speeds and the Palit has a FACTORY OVERCLOCK.

The only difference on card makes over another in terms of overclocking is how far you will be able to push it.

That is determined by things like the cooler, the GPU selection process, and some other things that are far too complicated to get into.

hi , im just wondering if all graphics cards can be overclock .for example if i have a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB and a Palit Geforce GTX 750 Ti StormX OC 2G GDDR5 which of both cards is overclockable? does it means that the palit one is the overclockable because it says that was an OC? or even if the card is not stated with that OC name it is still overclockable? if doesnt how should i know if the card can be overclock
plss help im just a beginner thanks

OC, Superclocked, and any other terms that imply overclocking usually mean that the card is factory overclocked, so you don't have to do it yourself. It's why you see some companies sell multiple versions of the same GPU (that, and coolers). Pretty much any GPU can be overclocked; how far you can overclock it is up to chance.

It's hard to tell. I have a stock EVGA Gtx 580 that Overclocks better than my MSI 580 that is factory overclocked. Luck of the draw when it comes to ''binning''
