View Full Version : 8800GTS Overclocks

K here are my questions...

Are the 8800's safe to keep overclocked for the span of their life? Or should I only over clock the card before I game?

Does anyone overclock using the automatic tuning features of the Nvidia control panel?

As long as the card is not running to hot you will be fine,i keep mine at 640/1800.

Well the hotter a component is, the short the life span.
As long as you don't go past the rated temperature the lifespan isn't reduced much.

Personally tho. The only time I Overclock is to play oblivion. Because well no other game needs it. If it plays smooth, why overclock?

Got mine at 650/2000, which passed over 10 mins in ATITool with no errors.
