What are the main points when overclocking a video card?

Overclocking a graphics card is the process of increasing the clock frequency of the graphics processing unit (GPU) and video memory to enhance performance. Here are some key points to consider when overclocking a graphics card:

  1. Cooling:

    • As the GPU's clock frequency increases, it may generate more heat. Ensure that the cooling system is effective.
    • Consider using additional fans or a liquid cooling system if needed.
  2. Gradual Approach:

    • Start overclocking by gradually increasing the frequency. This helps find optimal values without encountering stability issues.
  3. Voltage:

    • Increasing voltage can aid in stabilizing the overclock, but it can also raise heat levels and shorten the card's lifespan. Be cautious and avoid excessive voltage increases.
  4. Stability Testing:

    • After each adjustment in frequency or voltage, perform stability tests using dedicated programs such as FurMark or MSI Kombustor.
  5. Temperature:

    • Monitor the temperature of the graphics card during the overclocking process. High temperatures can lead to overheating and performance degradation.
  6. Record Settings:

    • Once stable overclocking values are found, record them. This allows you to restore settings in case of a failure or if you need to reset parameters.
  7. Safety Considerations:

    • Remember that overclocking may reduce the lifespan of the graphics card, and some manufacturers may consider it a warranty violation.
  8. Drivers and Updates:

    • Keep graphics card drivers and overclocking management software up to date for optimal compatibility and stability.
  9. Power Supply:

    • Ensure that your power supply can provide sufficient power at increased overclocked settings.
  10. Monitoring:

    • Use monitoring programs to track real-time data such as temperature, CPU usage, and other relevant parameters.

It's important to bear in mind that while overclocking can enhance performance, there is a risk of damaging the hardware if not done correctly. Exercise caution and closely monitor all changes made during the overclocking process.




How to make your own driver for LGA2011-3 turbo boost unlock?

Greetings. Is it realistic to make EFI or FFS driver with its own parameters (need a certain undervolt). Maybe it is possible to edit already existing drivers somehow? Thanks in advance.

It is unfortunately not possible to tweak existing versions. But you can compile a driver based on Payne sources with your parameters using the instructions from overclockers forum:

1. Download FASM and unzip it into the folder

2. Download sources from c_payne and v3_payne.asm into the folder with fasm.

3. Edit the file v3_payne.asm with notepad and enter your value. Save

CoreVOffset = -30 (any desired value)

CacheVOffset = -20 (any desired value)

4. Run command line from the folder and enter the command


fasm v3_payne.asm 1.efi



P.s since the driver is in assembly language it can be converted to ffs and stitched into the bios (.efi drag and drop to GenMod).


Hi! I have a board 3.2s1, to which can be sewn bios with timings only programmer. I don't want to unsolder the bios microcircuit, I want to connect with a clothespin, but something does not work. I use this CH341A programmer
Is there any guide to flashing?


In short: insert the battery and connect the 24-pin power to the board.
The same method should work for Huananzhi 2.49 (p\ pb \ Plus, etc.) and probably for other Chinese boards with W25Q64JV chip.


Huananzhi x79 ver 2.49pb. When working very much warms the chipset, and in aida and other programs with temperature shows at least 120 ° C

Board temperature of 120 degrees is a traditional glitch of Chinese motherboards, in fact the temperature is much lower=)
The chipset radiator should be hot, because it removes heat from the chip itself. Specifically on Huananzhi ver 2.49pb there should be no problems with chipset overheating, but in order to be sure, you can carefully remove the heatsink and check the quality of the thermal seal.


Hi! I am the happy owner of a build on a red huangan and e5 1650. Overclocked to 4.3 GHz, and checked the stability, everything is fine, but the question came up - what to cool the processor, the old cooler is clearly not coping. What to pay attention to when choosing a new one? Are there any proven models?
Also, how much cooler will Xeon e5 1650 v2? Maybe it is possible to take a smaller cooler to it?

The 1650 v2 is certainly a little less hot, but not significantly.
For both processors you should follow the following rules of thumb:

To work in the stock or with a small (up to 3.9 GHz) overclocking - from 4 heat pipes. The fan diameter should preferably be from 120 mm.
For overclocking - better from 6 heat pipes, fan diameter from 140 mm.
Proven models for overclocking: Ice Hammer IH-4800, Deepcool ASSASSIN II, Deepcool Lucifer V2, Deepcool REDHAT. You can find them in regular computer stores.
