not sure if i have this one
GTS 250 512MB
or this one
GTS 250 1GB
I will check when I get home hoefully the latter otherwise i am returning lol anyways shouldnt matter for what I am asking.
Does anyone have any advice on overclocking this card or GPU's in general?
GTS 250 comes with software http://www.aoaforums.com/forum/attachments/graphics-sound-cards-speakers-other-peripherals/22296d1209856103-new-evga-graphics-card-overclocking-utility-evga-precision.jpg
"EVGA Precision" to succesfully overclock the card based on four fields
(explanation of core clock/shader clock if possible would also be appreciated... i.e. what is shader clock and why is it greyed out and connected to core clock)
So anyways, there it is. What it means, I have no idea. All I could find was an article saying to adjust fan speed to a noise level of my choice (stock 33, i chose 60) and then to slowly bump the core clock/Shader Clock incrementally by 25 then test using 3Dmark or atitool for stability and then repeat.
I would like to know:
a)what shader clock means?
b)why am i given the oportunity to overclock memory yet it is already clocked at max (should i even change this setting)
c)what is a relativley good temp (°C) for my card to be running at. Currently when running games I stay around 40°C - 56°C depending on the game. Can/should i push this card hotter or no. Any generic rules for overclocking GPU's especially GTS\GTX series?
