Overclocking 1080ti for absolute beginners

 Share

So I want to overclock my 1080ti to better perform but I do not want to spend hours and hours testing my card since I have no real experience overclocking. I have the AORUS 1080ti from Gigabyte and would like to know what save increases in MSI afterburner I can apply. I have no need for the absolute maximum performance, I am just looking for a save overclock. I would say that my system has decent temperatures. Other system specs are in my profile description below.

i5-6600K 3,50GHz | Motherboard Gigabyte B150M-D3H | RAM Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR4-2400 | GTX970 | 500GB SSD EVO | 2560x1440p 27" | Corsair 650W

In order to overclock correctly, you have to be willing to put in the time to validate your overclock. It doesn't take any effort to leave your computer on, benchmarking while you go watch tv. If all you want is a little extra performance, just put +100MHz on the core and a couple hundred on the memory and call it done.

 

edit: Your experience (or lack there of) does not allow you to skip important steps in overclocking. Every card is different, so you can't just take someone else's OC and put it on your card and expect it to work.

That being said, everything in this video can be applied to your GPU:

you dont need hours of testing, just 1 minute of it is enough (though you will need multiple of that, so let's say 10 mins for the whole process).

 

- Give +100 offset, test Heaven Benchmark for 1 minute

 

- No crash, increase by 50MHz

 

- If crash:

  - Heaven dies, Windows still works (reduce offset by 25)

 - Whole system crashes, need reboot (reduce offset by 50)

 

Make sure you dont auto-start Afterburner before finding out the stable overclock, so it doesnt apply the overclock automatically and lead to Windows to crash when you log in.

I am willing to put in some hours, but I do not desire the maximum overclock, I would just like a save moderate overclock. And what about the power limit and fan curve? Is a power limit of 120% (maximum) save? And what would good temperatures be? Under 70 degrees?

Just set your fans to 100%, set your power target to +50% or whatever and you're done, the card basically does the rest.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?
