Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go
I didn't think there would be much headroom left in the card, but we did get a seriously nice overclock from it. Unusually, the two fans didn't make that much noise even under our heavy overclock. With our heavy Battlefield 4 sessions, only one of the fans actually spun up. This provides an excellent experience for gaming, as you're able to squeeze performance from the card, all while enjoying a quiet gaming experience.
We were able to crank up the Core Clock from its stock speed of 1140MHz to 1371MHz, which resulted in increasing the Boost Clock from 1241MHz to 1472MHz. The RAM we were able to clock up too, from 1753MHz to 1864MHz.
When it comes to the performance benefit, we have some great results to share.
