NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Overclocking with Voltage Adjustment

Vantage Suicide Run


If you're from GIGABYTE Tech, please look away so you don't see what I did to your GTX 480.


When I asked MSI what was a safe voltage to go to they responded back with "only 1.1"; so I asked "1125 not safe?" and they responded back with "it's too hot, you can only tweak 0.1 v."


Since we already were running 1113 what was a little bit more going to do? So we moved the slider to the max which was 1125. Once we did that and hit apply our machine BSOD and we couldn't turn it back on... just kidding :)


All I wanted was a clock speed that would run a single loop of Vantage and give us a P score. Looking at the full screen you can see the clocks we achieved along with the score. Of course we wouldn't recommend doing this 24 / 7; plus the fact of the matter is that it won't run everything.




As a note the GTX 480 at default achieved P21491, at the speeds that ran all our benchmarks we achieved P25241.
