NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Overclocking with Voltage Adjustment

I punish the GeForce GTX 480 with more voltage; and my ear drums with the fan speed set to 100%!

As I write this, MSI literally just released the latest version of MSI Afterburner 1.6.0 Beta only a few hours ago. The fact that MSI released a new version of Afterburner doesn't warrant its own article.

 

The fact that MSI offered Voltage Adjustment to the new GeForce GTX 480 video card in the release though, very much does. Voltage Adjustment on video cards has become such a big thing these days; companies offering such good cooling options mean that the video cards can handle a bit more voltage, which in turn is offering some outstanding performance increases.

 

MSI have done extremely well; anyone who's overclocking is using their software and in every screenshot you're seeing the MSI logo, no matter what card you're using. A constant flow of updates and people wanting to get the most out of a video card means we're seeing it so often. These days when someone asks what do I use to overclock my video card the chances are they're being told MSI Afterburner.

 

Due to the fact that we want to offer this article to you in the shortest time frame possible, the word count is going to be down, as most of my effort is placed in benchmarking.

 

On the next page we'll have a few screenshots and after that it's straight into the benchmarking!
