I bought a new msi gtx 1060 gaming x 6g and I may need your help. I've installed the msi afterburner and the default setting are core clock 0 , memory clock 0. so any tips how to overclock?

You have to enable it. How to.
I think NVIDIA's control panel have OCing option, check it out.

The values shown are added to the base factory clock. I.e, when it shows 0 it does not mean that the card is running at 0mhz. It is how much is added to the base clock. For example, if the base clock is 1000mhz, it will be 1000 + 0 (no overclock). This is just an example to explain it, the 1060 runs faster than 1000mhz out of the box.


Increase the core clock in steps of 5mhz and run a stress test each time. You can keep pushing it until you get a BSOD or some other graphical error. When this happens dial the over clock back a bit and run the stress tests again.



REMEMBER: the 0 core and memeory clock shown in afterburner are the values that will be ADDED to the base speeds. They are not the actual speed that the card runs at.



Make sure your temperatures are acceptable and I would recommend making a custom fan curve if you plan on overclocking.


However OCing really isn't necessary on a 1060, and Nvidia cards also self overclock based on what temp they are running at. I honestly wouldn't bother!


Either way, any more questions feel free to ask ;)

"...if that battle had KAC players there would be some of the worst gameplay the server has seen. I'd be yoloing, Ezz would be ramming, Robin would tk siggy, everyone else would likely afk at base as we'd struggle to get more than 5 on at one time. Shit did I just let out our master tier 4 strat?" - King Yolo, PBKAC
