I wanna get around 130-144 frames out of it for Rainbow Six Siege while still having decent looking graphics

You will gain at best 10%, so I hope you're already getting 120fps.

Can I start raising the voltage and frequency until I don't see any more gains or until my system becomes unstable without damaging the card?

Yes, but no need to touch the voltage slider. It doesnt raise the maximum voltage your GPU will receive anyway.

it's overkill

I've never OC'd a GPU and I want to try on my 1060. It's an Asus ROG STRIX card and I can't remember if it has factory overclocking. I wanna get around 130-144 frames out of it for Rainbow Six Siege while still having decent looking graphics. Can I start raising the voltage and frequency until I don't see any more gains or until my system becomes unstable without damaging the card? The card has a three fan cooler on it, by the way. I imagine it's not a terrible cooler.

STRIX GPU coolers are overkill, and run very nicely. My factory OC STRIX 1070 runs below 70C regardless of ambient temperature or the GPU load

GPU overclocking will give you marginal gains... at best. A few FPS maybe. Generally GPU overclocking goes like this...

 

  1. Unlock voltage control and moniotoring in afterburner.
  2. Crank the power limit and core voltage all of the way to the right.
  3. Increase your core clock speed by 10-20 MHz
  4. Test stability, check for artifacts.
  5. Increase core clock speed again
  6. Test stability, check for artifacts.
  7. When you see artifacts, go down to your last stable clock speed increase, start increasing memory frequency. Start with +50Ghz.
  8. Repeat process for memory frequency.
  9. When you start seeing artifacts, try to increase your core clock by a few more MHz.

Run a long term stability test and keep an eye on temps. If they're good, you're good, if they're not, you have to decrease the power slider. Watch for artifacts (usually the first sign of a "too far" overclock.

 

Congrats, you've gained all of like 3-5 fps. 

 

I THINK most people see anywhere from +50 MHz core clock to +200 MHz core clock (memory anywhere from +150 to +600). My card, for example, does NOT overclock well and only gets +55 MHz clock and + 200 ish memory, then I start to see artifacts. Sad :(
