Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 465/470/480" thread
I stopped OCing for a while now, but it has been my experience that if you leave everything stock you generally will have a very stable system with almost no trouble at all, but once you start OCing, you need to put a lot of effort into testing to make sure the system stable. I have never had any bad experiences when OCing, but most of the time the gains I got from OCing were just not worth the effort.
Also if you didn't buy some decent RAM to begin with it can adversely affect the stability of your machine when you try OCing. So if for example you got the slower or to spec RAM to save money when you bought your components, and now you are having issues when you hit the turbo button, then I would say the ram is the one having the fit because of the OCing.
