560TI SC - What Do You Think?
 
EVGA GTX 560TI SC

Core Clock: 980
Shader Clock: 1960
Memory Clock: 2200
Voltage: 1.037 (stock)


i7 2700k @ 4.4 (using ASrock's "recommended settings")

My questions:

How am I doing?

How can I test my card's stability without hurting it?

Does upping the voltage hurt the card?

What settings would you recommend I keep the card at for gaming?

How do I see what load my CPU has while gaming?

PLEASE MAKE YOUR BEST EFFORT TO ANSWER ALL OF MY QUESTIONS SO I DO NOT HAVE TO REPOST.

Thanks!

Then I ran Unigine Heaven 2.1 and I got half way through and received this error:

So I brought my my voltage to 1.05 and ran it again and received no error. Should I keep my voltage at 1.05? Is there a way to make precision stay at 1.05?

Use MSI Afterburner, its better because it allows you to change voltage settings, create fan profiles etc

You can do both of those with precision...

I say you're doing pretty good, i can only get my 560ti SC to 950 on the core on stock voltage before it starts to artifact. But agreed afterburner > precision.

- looks good so far, although I wouldn't bother with Furmark, puts a ridiculously huge amount of strain on your GPU thus causing unrealistically high Temps, best way to check stability with your GPU OC is to simply "Game", preferably DX11 Gaming ;)

- By Gaming (DX11) !!

Quote:

Does upping the voltage hurt the card?
- As long as your Voltage Bumps are "small and incremental", while allowing your Fan Speed to either Ramp up accordingly or set Fan Profiles to keep Temps in check - No your Card will be fine!

Quote:

What settings would you recommend I keep the card at for gaming?
- Whatever Moderate OC you find you can game at without any Freezes, Lockups, Black Screens or unreasonably high Temps.

Quote:

Run "Core Temp" in the background while Gaming, when you exit the Game, open Core Temp and check the "High/Max Temp" column.

Have fun n enjoy!
