Hi I guess I'm bored and wishing my photos render just that bit faster, so I'm looking at giving my Asus Strix 1060 a bit of ooomph*. But wondering if I need to give it juice.

 

On youtube some people can crank up the power, core clock and ram clock by about 112%. Using MSI afterburner, there is no option to change the V. Using Asus GPU Tweak II tool, there is an option to tweak V (but not many youtube videos I watch would tweak the V).

 

Tweak V or leave it alone?

 

 

 

*would a 1070 make lightroom and PS go faster I wonder. nothing on the internet to compare the 2.

Generally when overclocking you go in small increments, benchmarking/stress testing along the way.

 

When you hit the limit that's when voltage can give you more. But is it worth it at that stage, I don't know. I guess with the Strix units the cooling solution is going to be capable.

 

Eg if you could hit 10% without voltage adjustments I'd be happy with that and wouldn't bother voltage adjustment just to get a few percent more

Have you got lightroom set to use your GPU?

Even then I'm not sure it's so much GPU bound as CPU\RAM\Disk:

Both set to use gpu. When it renders an image it uses all of ssd cpu ram gpu, but mainly gpu, but only for Image render (ie when it needs to show me a high equality pic on the screen, everything else doesn't use gpu in Lightroom, Photoshop is slightly different, haven't figured that bit out yet, i am noob at that for a start but i think Photoshop uses a bit more gpu than Lightroom)

That's exactly what I needed to know thanks

Leave it alone. You better be bored than banging your head in the wall when your computer starts to have issues.

 

I believe, whoever trying to make their system work hundred and twelve percent aren't doing anything wise.

 

 

 

Let it be,

Why do you say that? Is gpu less stable top overclock

Ignore the naysayers :) Just make sure you do a decent burn-in to ensure stability before using the overclocked thing for anything important.  If you're not increasing the voltage you're not really at risk of damaging anything.
