    im trying to find my max clock for gts450 and ive reached 940core 1990memory with evga precisionx, (stock 783 1804) voltage up to 1088mv. No artefacts, temps well below 50*c. All going well benching with heaven and 3dmark, and then NVidia driver crash?????? :banghead:

    anyone recommend tweaked drivers or some software edit? btw im on windows8 and omega and tweakforce don't seem to install, im also using 310.90 NVidia drivers.

    if your driver is crashing it means the overclock isnt stable dial back the overclock.

    correct, just cause it doesnt do those things doesnt mean its stable,

    key example AMD gpus tend to have error correction in the memory so when clocking it you wont see artifacts at all but performance will get worse and worse and worse.

    your overclock simply isnt stable.

    I did read somewhere that someone maxed on about 900core, 2000 memory but apparently the memory faults first so ill wind it down! any software to test for stability if display doesn't show it first? thanks btw

    play a game if it crashes its not stable if driver crashes afterwards its not stable straight forward really
