    Default GTX 970 Overclocking

    1 Is it worthwhile doing for TRS 2019?
    2 Does anybody have some suggestions of settings to try?

    Thanks Bob

    You normally overclock the CPU not the GPU.

    You normally overclock either or both of them: depends on where your "bottle neck" is. My own opinion is that you don't overclock either of them. If they can safely operate faster, the manufacturer would already have them doing that.

    Can you overclock? Sure.....lots of folks do. But overclocking raises temps and failure rates. And when either fails from that overclocking, catastrophic failures to other components occur.

    Be happy with what you have a save up for something better.

    There are obviously factory Overclocked GPUs and ones that specifically say they can be overclocked, however most will have higher spec parts and better cooling and consequently will cost more.
