OverclockingThe overclocking results listed in this section were achieved with the default fan and voltage settings as defined in the VGA BIOS. Please note that every single sample overclocks differently which is why our results here can only serve as a guideline for what you can expect from your card.
The maximum stable clocks of our card are 1115 MHz core (5% overclock) and 1740 MHz memory (16% overclock).
Both GPU and memory overclock are a bit on the lower side - other cards do better here. Overclocking, nevertheless, still yields a nice performance improvement which puts the card on the same level as the GTX 670.

Overclocked PerformanceUsing these clock frequencies, we ran a quick test of Battlefield 3 to evaluate the gains from overclocking.
Actual 3D performance gained from overclocking is 9.7%.
