My System Specs

Default gtx 560 ti overclock

I have two systems and I have a 560 ti in both of them. One is a palit 2gb the other is an evga 1gb. the evga 1gb card is clocked at:

graphics clock: 950 mhz

memory clock: 2149 mhz

processor clock: 1900 mhz

I overclocked with nvidia performance software that I got off the nvidia website.
the evga orginally had:

g clock: 900 mhz
mem clock: 2106 mhz
processor clock: 1800 mhz

I want to go higher but am not sure I can because on the nvidia software it doesnt allow voltage changes or atleast i dont see them. Im running this card on a 23" lcd led monitor at 1920x1080.
I am a bit disapointed in it because i am only getting a max of 22 fps on furmark. My palit 2gb which i overclocked with the same software too the original evga card OC runs on a 32" 1920x1080 screen and it gets a max of 30 fps on furmark. I dont know why the 2gb on the larger screen is getting more frames than the 1gb on the smaller screen. I want to get the 1gb card to atleast match the 2gb card in frames on furmark.

I dont understand because on the performance test is company of heroes I get a max of 60 fps on the 1gb and max of 30 fps on the 2gb.

I got the graphics clock too 980 mhz on the 1gb evga ran the 720p preset test on furmark at 38 fps.I tried the same speed on the 2gb I could not get it stable though, its sad because it hit 60 fps oh well I just dont think i will be able to match my 2gb. Thanks, I should have just spent an extra 40$ on a 2gb.

My Evga 560ti FPB can do 1ghz graphics clock easily. Once I get better cooling and case setup for my system I'll really test it to see where it can go. I bumped the voltage on the card to 1.1 and temps were in the 70-80' mark using artifact scanner

Just for the record, there is no difference in terms of "screen size", both of them are 1080p, the 23in has smaller pixels, while the 32in has bigger ones, but the work load asked from your GPU is identical.

i see thanks guys and I got mine up to 1ghz to but furmark crashed about 2 minutes in and heat was not an issue it was running at about 75 c is this because i need to up the voltage? I feel i could go further because i have lots of fans and good airflow in my case.
