Default GTX560 undervolt - 03-30-2012, 03:23 | posts: 87 | Location: Caracas, Venezuela

I bought a zotac GTX560, im very happy with it, nice performer at a great price, read that i can lower the vcore (in 2d and 3d states) to reduce heat, right now im running at 0.962v (high perf 3D) (stock 1.000v), i ran Furmark and others stress tests, all runs fine, how lower can i go? btw im runing at stock clocks for now (that's why im undervolting) im waiting an aftermarket cooler

Depends on the card, they are not all made equally. Give lowing it even more a try, and if it fails raise it again, only way you will know for sure. Some cards wont even hold anything outside of 2D speeds without at least 1.012v on the core, others can easily be at .950v even with a small OC.

im using .887 in 2D mode, .950v on low power 3D, and 0.962 for 3D, i will test .950 on 3D to see if is stable, with .962 the card runs about 6-8 șC cooler
