Default GTX 680 Overclocking

So my GPU has +100mhz on it and it never goes beyond 70C on 100% load. How far do you think I can push it? I haven't even changed voltages yet. ^_^

Got my mem clock set to +275 as well.

Is it a 6800 GTX or Ultra?

I have settled at 1245/6966 in games, which is +121 core, +480 mem and 132% power target.

I've seen people have to get +150 or more to get close to mid 1200s, it all depends what your boost clock is...mine is 1124.

I made a custom fan cure and I never see it go higher than 65c, these cards are awesome once you figure them out, they run so quiet even with the fan at max.

I'd say go as high as you can..get the most out of your card. BF3 seems to be one of the best ways to test at the moment, if its stable in BF3 then your good to go.

January of this year a burglar broke into my business and stole my old computer with my 6800 gt in it ....thanks for making me cry again ...I loved that machine. I used it as an accounts data base, figured who would want that old thing. Nothing is sacred

These cards run super cool with custom fan curve.

I've also got mine set at +350 right now, but for those really tough situations I've got a +550 crit.
