What should I overclock my GT 1030 to?

Hello, I currently have a GT 1030 and I have been looking for good overclocking settings online but they all seem to end up crashing my pc. I decide to ask here if I could get a better results

 

Pc specs:

8gb ram (2x4 1333mhz)

ASUS GT 1030 Gddr5

Intel g2020 2.90 GHz

 

I use msi afterburner as my overclocking software. Any help is appreciated

Every card is different. You have to experiment to see what your 1030 can manage. 

 

Also, overclocks aren't guaranteed, and chances are the card is already boosting as much as it can automatically. 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

From what I've heard, a lot of 1030s can do max memory clock. I'd try that first.

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

Every chip is different. So, i would recommend doing it by yourself.

 

First add +10 clock and +10 memory while running benchmark like FurMark, if GPU gets unstable, decrease the clocks. 

 

Personally, i wouldn't recommend doing it, performance impact would be not that much and makes GPU run hotter.

Well overclocking can be all over the place. Since there are small differences in the silicon, some cards may be able to overlock with only like 10Mhz, while some could possibly go up even further. So best way to find a stable overclock for YOUR GPU is to test it yourself.

I 100% disagree with that statement. Most modern cards have quite a bit of thermal headroom because they tend to favour quiet operation instead of maximum performance. My GTX970 overclocks 35% higher than its stock clocks, that makes a very noticeable improvement. Even a passively cooled low end card can be overclocked significantly, if there is slight bit of airflow. Overclocking is absolutely worth it and its impact on performance and heat output depends on how much you overclock. Any blanket statement such as that is straight up not acceptable.

Yeah, some cards tend to be overclocked much.

 

I've also overclocked an GT840M by +250 clock and +350 memory and made around 8-12 FPS difference.
