Should I oc a factory oc GPU?

Currently I am using a zotac 1050ti oc edition and I was wondering if shortening the life of it would be worth for that extra little bit of performance.

  1. its already factory overclocked not much you can do about that.

  2. GPU Boost 3.0 on current Nvidia cards do a pretty good job already pushing the OC higher than even stated clocks on the box. The only reason that I see to play with the OC is if want to squeeze every last bit of power out of your card, or if you are trying to OC your GPU in such a way that lowers heat output with only a slight decrease in performance.

    Ok, but is it worth risking shortening my cards life for that little boost of performance?

    You are talking about 2-3 fps generally in games that already bounce around considerably. It's honestly not worth the bother unless you can get a really decent OC. My gtx970 doesn't have gpu boost 3, so the 124% OC it's sitting at works quite well.

  5. There's not much upside to it as you can usually squeeze 5-10% at most out of Pascal cards factory OC (Most can be manually OCed to 2000-2100Mhz). However there is also no downside to it, as NVIDIA pretty much locked BIOS setting in the safest zone. You won't be able to screw up Voltage or anything at all, there is almost zero risk to it.
