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.
On NVIDIA cards with boost, the values discussed here are base clock. Boost will further increase clocks.
Maximum overclock on our card is 1130 MHz GPU base clock (12% overclocking) and 1810 MHz memory (21% overclock).
Overclocking the ASUS GTX 760 DC Mini yielded the lowest GPU overclock we've seen so far from a GTX 760, but the difference is quite small. Overclocking shouldn't be the primary focus for a small form factor product anyway, so the slightly lower clocks are not a big deal.
Important: Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model) will overclock slightly

overclocks for similar cards, determined during TPU review.
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 14.1%.
