Trying to OC GPU and CPU

i seriously have no idea what to do (total noob here)..watch some youtube video..read some guides....and im still no clue..

basically all the guides mention

1) Core Voltage MAX
2) Power Limit MAX
3) Temp. Limit MAX

i tried +120mhz coreclock and +650mhz memory clock...click the kombustor and it run well...



but mine shows as 1.8kmhz while all the article shows 2kmhz? do i need to pull my core clock slider to +300 or +400 for 2k mhz coreclock??

2 GHz is the clock after GPU Boost. You can run Time Spy and look at the actual clock rate.

I can get 2 GHz with a +168 MHz OC to the stock clock and without increasing the stock voltage and power limit.

ooh..no wonder everyone was talking about 2ghz all the time while mine is 1.8ghz..

does it mean that i can only see the 2ghz while stress test it or playing games?

aside from that, any hot key to instantly switch between profile? like when im playing game im in profile 2..while just surfing web i use profile 1

*edit: aside from timespy, any free benchmark software?

Yup, GPU Boost will kick in only when needed.

Not sure about profile switching.

*edit: aside from timespy, any free benchmark software?
1) use the afterburner 2d/3d profile setting (2d is your idle profile, 3d is OC profile)
2) click the BIG i and check if any 3d active process is detected .
3) open RTSS and ADD in the detected .exe u want to ignore.
4) set that .exe RTSS application detection level to NONE
5) restart afterburner
6) your GPU should now automatically use your OC profile only when gaming or when any 3D program is opened.
* ( some PC monitoring program like hwinfo64 are classfied as 3D program so u might want to add that in RTSS )

p/s : did u undervolt your GPU to run at 0.9v @ 1809mhz ?

downloaded it. stress test need to buy also.

i can never see the number goes beyond 1.8ghz..benchmark is fullscreen so not sure if there is any way to see the number goes to boost clock

1) use the afterburner 2d/3d profile setting (2d is your idle profile, 3d is OC profile)
2) click the BIG i and check if any 3d active process is detected .
3) open RTSS and ADD in the detected .exe u want to ignore.

p/s : did u undervolt your GPU to run at 0.9v @ 1809mhz ?
woah. thanks bruh..so its advisable to run at stock when its at 2D and game with OC profile? can i just run OC profile all day long?

*edit: i cant see there is "detection level" button for me to click

not sure whats undervolt, but i max out Core Voltage, power limit and temp limit...coreclock +120mhz, memory clock +650mhz...custom fan speed.

the number still shows only 1.8+ghz

In Time Spy online results, you can see this which shows the GPU core and memory clocks

To me, if it pass 5 run consecutively, it's good enough. Would throw in a few more test on some gaming benchmark like Final Fantasy, Metro Last Light, Shadow of War, I have those games, so I make use of them. For long term temp and stability testing, can use 'Fuzzy Donut' (furmark). It's the most unrealistic test and strain to the gpu if that's your thing.

ok, i run benchmark with far cry 5...when i do master reset to msi afterburner (run stock) and test it..the clocks fluctuates as game demanded and the highest is 1.9+ghz

then, i use my oc profile +120mhz (1.8+ghz)...benchmark clocks stays as 1.8+ghz..

hmmmm, as other all stable around 2+ghz...i need to +400mhz to my card and test it?

Your results are off. Every Pascal card I owned (EVGA GTX 1060 Gaming SC, Zotac GTX 1070, Galax GTX 1070Ti) have all gone over 2 GHz without problem.

I suggest you try with everything at stock and only OC the GPU clock to see how far you can push it.

u mean reset all and only add the core clock? ignore core voltage, power limit, temp. limit and memory cloc?

edit:
ok, after tweaking it here and there, i think i ROUGHLY get the gist.
1) basically just now my mhz stuck at 1.8ghz is because i lock it at 1.8ghz @ 0.9v as shwn in my first screenshot
2) once i unlock it, the mhz will go varies (depend on game process) from 300mhz to 1.93ghz.
3) i reset everything and only pull slider to max for power limit and temp. limit. +60mhz with far cry 5 benchmark (highest is 1.94ghz in game)..anything more the benchmark crash and exited.

so, now....some question:
1) anything i need to slowly tweak to obtain 2ghz?e.g. core voltage?
2) is it better to lock the clock & volt for gaming? or just let the card varies from 0mhz to 1.9ghz when gaming and surfing?

Yes, this is to see how far your GPU can clock at stock and check whether you are being thermal throttled due to voltage etc.

FYI my OC was done with everything at stock except core clock and memory clock.

u can run OC profile all day long no problem, but i prefer to use my Idle Clock profile for my daily uses outside of gaming.

also check your GPU voltage is it locked at 0.9v for your OC profile.. that might explain why u only get 1823mhz.
