need some help on basic oc

So i'm using evga precision, and i see this little slider saying gpu clock offset, if i increase the offset by let's say 300 mhz, do i need to increase the voltage or is moving the slider all i need to do for it to be stable

  1. You need to test the overclock to see if its stable. Adding voltage when its unstable is what allows you to push your overclock futher. You cansafely push this all the way to the max, but you might not need to.
    I used this guide untill I made my own preferences on the process: http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-2749337/safe-gpu-overclocking-guide-2016.html

    Depends on whether your card is running stable at that frequency without adding voltage. Once you have dialed in the offset, run some GPU-intensive tasks and see if there's any problems like artifacts, crashing, etc. If there are, then increase the voltage step-by-step until it becomes stable again, then again increase the clock speed, and repeat.

    If it is stable at that clock speed, increase the offset(baby steps, don't dial a full 600 MHz straight away, go around 25 MHz with each jump) until it becomes unstable, and then increase the voltage as in the previous case.

    Keep doing this until you reach a point where you are not willing to increase the voltage further, or the temps are becoming too high for your liking. Save that as your custom OC profile, and your overclock is set.
