Overclocking - So Much Room For Activities!
One area of the GTX 960 that is going to be interesting is the potential it has to be overclocked. NVIDIA has really dialed things down on its reference design so that AIB partners can really play around with things. ZOTAC is using just a single 6-pin PCIe power connector, as well as some out-of-the-box overclocking of their own, so I don't expect much from the overclocking side of things.
We did push up another 100MHz on top of the overclock of the Base clock which seemed to be stable, but pushing the memory up another 40-50MHz resulted in instability. We're going to write up a follow up article next week looking at the overclocking of these GTX 960s, so keep your eye out for that.
The headroom on these cards is amazing, but ZOTAC is already taking advantage of Maxwell's architecture within the GTX 960 to squeeze an already impressive OC in the GTX 960 AMP! Edition.
