Hey guys,

I have a question regarding GPU Tweak. I have an ASUS GeForce GTX 560 OC DC II (Non-Ti) running at 850 core and 1.025 voltage right out of the box. After downloading this utility and running it, GPU Tweak states that this card can be overclocked to a core of 950mHz and a voltage of 1.087. My question is, is a voltage of 1.087 safe for this card? My assumption is yes due to that being the max voltage allowed using GPU Tweak which I assume will not allow you to go past the "max safe voltage" of your specific card. However, this was not specified anywhere in the original description of the software which led me to post this thread. Any information is appreciated!

I'm asking myself the same question but looks like no one knows .....

The 560s have a lot of OC potential. I overvolted 460s to well above 1.2V without issue, but the temperatures sky-rocketed so I brought it back down. We won't provide any voltage that will give instant death, because that is simply not good business ;) so just increase it slowly and see the effect on temperatures. Once you see the temps going nuts under load you know the transistor leakage has hit its air-cooled threshold.
