Can I maintain 60fps with a overclock

Turtle Rig
 Share

I have not OCed a video card in a long long time.  One change I notice since long ago when OCing a card is it doesn't show your load clock speeds,  My nv panel is on optimal power,,,   When I choose performance it shows the full speed of the clock.  How do I OC this ?  Change to performance mode and OC, or leave it on optimal power and OC that way, in which case I wont know my real clock speeds... sighs..  Also do I need to touch voltage on this thing.  I just want my lowest FPS which is 48fps every blue moon in QC.  Will OCing change that lowest fps drop 48 to like 55 or 60fps ?

Just stick to optimal power. To do your overclock with frequency updated you will need a GPU demanding game running at the same time (GPU actively rendering, that is) while you tune the clock speeds. To ensure GPU bottleneck, crank up the graphics settings as much as possible as long as it doesnt exceed VRAM limit.

Gotcha!  thanks Jurrunio much!!!

 

Can I take up the core clock and memory clock by 50mhz each without touching voltage.  I want a safe overclock ya know.

Lazy mode (pulling slider) or pro mode (voltage/frequency graph)?

 

I'd rather do it in 25mhz intervals.

I'd start with +100 core and +300 memory, those shouldn't cause any instability. Then start taking doing 10 mhz intervals on the core and 25 mhz intervals on the memory till it starts crashing. I would suggest using furmark for max stress and then playing some games to confirm stability. I would figure that you could do about +175 core +500 memory at your max overclocks on that card, don't bother adjusting voltage cause it doesn't really make a difference on pascal.

Wow dankboy you rock..  :)  Ok so I launch a game then task out and Im gonna raise the core +100 and memory +300.  Am I correct ?  About to do it just wan't confirmation.

You can apply the overclock before launching a game. MSI Afterburner remembers your settings. You can even apply overclock on startup of MSI Afterburner, and just enable MSI afterburner to start with windows = Overclock on 24/7 :)

Yes boss, I have AB launched at all times, so the clocks will kick in at boot up.  Im in optimal power mode AB shows me low mhz numbers, so like I said, I guess I have to launch Quake Champions then task out and change core +100 and memory +300 ......, hope that makes me lowest fps of 48 to 55 or 60 sighs,,,

That power setting in the Nvidia Control Panel only affects idle clocks. If you keep it at optimal, the frequency will stay low for best temperatures. If you put it to performance mode, the idle frequency will be the cards base clock 24/7. This doesn't affect anything in games, so keep optimal over performance for lower temps and lower clocks so the card can rest easy at idle.

 

I'm sure you can do +400 or even +500 memory stable on any pascal card. Keep voltage slider at minimum, and push power & temp limits to max. That voltage slider also doesn't affect anything in gaming other than giving you higher temps. The voltage slider is mainly for lower clocks.
