overclocking gtx 1050ti

I just bought a gtx 1050ti, and after some thinking, i wanted to turn up the boost clock all the way from 1430mhz to 1770mhz. So i have ran into a problem, the screen got stuck after applying the overclock. What should I do?? should i take out the power cord???

BTW, i NEVER turned up the voltage

  1. What kind of system specs do you have ? The 1050ti is a budget card . I think you would need a power connection even to consider overlocking. Have you looked at any youtube videos ?

    am i right in thinking, that on your first OC attempt you decided to bump the clock by 340mhz? Wow!

    First advise is, if you ever decide to OC again - CPU/GPU/RAM, promise you'll do a bit of research first :) Read, watch and learn. Don't just bang it up by 20% odd, and hope for the best. That's not a good plan. And not good for your GPU!

    Did you OC with MSI Afterburner, or something like that? If so, it's a software OC, and should revert once you restart the system, unless you've selected the option to OC when windows starts!.

    I would suggest that if you can just restart the system and get to windows, that you run some monitoring software and make sure the card is running okay.

    If you want to OC, look at what i've said above. Google '1050ti overclock' get a reputable site and learn about how to do it right. If you haven't already hurt your new GPU, at least you can make sure you won't fry it in the future if you decide to OC properly.

    edit: just to be clear, do not take the power cord out of the GPU (and specially not while the system is on, for very obvious reasons) just unplug the power cord from the back of your case, and restart the system. Hopefully it will boot, and you'll just have the odd message about unusual shut down or something or other.

    agree with watching the vids. A lot of folks hear, 'Overlcoking is good, and will get you 10-20% performance increase'. Wow that's amazing. But don't research in anyway how to do it, and then potentially fry components.

  4. I bumped up the voltage by 3mV and IT was actually stable, but then I started bumping the boost clock more and more and then it got stuck again

  6. core i5 2400, 4 gigabytes of ram, gtx 1050ti

    like i said, try and re-start the PC as I mentioned. If you didn't select 'Apply Settings at start up' (or whatever the option is) then the OC will reset, and your GPU will run at stock. And will hopefully reboot..

    If you have problems with that, then there's a good chance you've damaged the GPU. I'm also confused now. You said in your first post you didn't increase voltage. Then in your next post you said you did by 3mv. Did you or didn't you? Voltage changes if not applied correctly and if you change something significantly has the potential to kill your card. Be careful and try to do the basics and get your system up and running again.

    You're welcome. But did your PC restart ok? If so, then chances are you haven't done any damage. But like I said, use something like HWMon/HWinfo to watch your GPU. Then you can be sure everything is okay.

    OC'ing hardware is quite a fun thing to do. See how far you can push it, or what benchmarks you can achieve. But it's quite an involved kind of thing. Research is key, specially before you try it. When i first started OC'ing, I made many mistakes. But with time and effort and a lot of research it became something that I really enjoy doing. Good luck with your new card. Hope it's still working okay :)
