    hello I recently got a gtx 1050 and I put the overclocking sliders to the max and now I just black screen after like 5 minutes of startup o hope you can help thank you

  • xDizzyBx

    I have the G1 version of this card, I clicked on the "easy oc mode" that only increases everything a little bit, and tested on uningine valley. Got worse fps than the stock "gaming mode" for whatever reason.

  • Mark Little

    my software wont allow me to change anything, when i move the clock scaler and hit apply it goes back to default, can you please advise why

  • Gabe L

    How do I just set it to the auto boost....?

  • xXE4GLEyEXx

    30 FPS in bf 1 ... i guess something is off with my card or my hdd for that matter

  • Seba Manriquez

    my AMP card gets 2120mHz is that good? i only added 350 mHz to both the memory and the GPU clock

  • Mysterion1

    Runs stable on my system + I gain 10 FPS more in FurMark

  • Funkmeister

    I got the Gigabyte GTX 1060 Windforce OC 6Gig edition and I could only manage these settings which is quite disappointing. I'm not an expert overclocker but this is as far as I could push the speeds etc before Heaven benchmark started showing artifacts/freezing and crashing:GPU clock: 110mhzMemory Clock: 1,200mhzGPU voltage: 12% (I set this to 10% and it was fine too but I left it at 12% like the video)Power Limit: 12%Temperature limit: +7 (this affects power limit so setting this to +7 gave me a limit of 90 degrees and a power limit of 12%)Fan mode: Easy mode @ Turbo speed.If you have any advice on how I can push this even more then please let me know. Otherwise, I guess this is better than nothing and it has given me like 5-8 FPS boost in games as apposed to 10.

  • lanalvesisthebestot

    thanks for the tutorial man

  • pierre kaillou

    Hello there, i know video is little old but seriously, even at 2016 why did you mad this little dangerous overclock on your video card and use it with this so poor phenom II ??? do you know that with a base i5 you get 90 fps with your setting without overclock anything ? I get 105 fps with my i5 8600k bro with your setting and 75 fps in extreme hd... Ok we are in 2018 but in 2016 there was enought good processor to manage video card as well. Your 67 fps in high setting 1080p is so poor for a gtx 1060.. Your overclocking is useless with this processor and if someone come here with a very good processor and put your setting in his videocard it can be dangerous i think, dont forget that your max setting overclocking on video card is manage with this poor amd processor, with very high processor its really not the same, and your +12% voltage is useless too, with your +173 mhz on gpu if you have used a big processor with this, it is at least offest +50 voltage if you dont want freeze screen....Well.. Thx anyway for your video, bye.

  • MarkusPl4y

  • Dénes Balogh

    How many mhz can i boost without any damage?

  • NextWorld VR

    Tip to uploader: OC's are by nature, a speedy bunch. Starting an OC tech talk, by talking about FAN CURVES, Not the best choice. I was pulling my hair out, waiting through that! No offense,... I like to get info, bim bam boom and get back to work.. Thanks!

  • NeOn AnNiHiLaToR

    i have the radeon rx 460 card how do i get the advanced OC thing on the software?

  • Deathx Kinslayer

    My OC, gaming and ECO modes are very similar in clock speed, gaming and OC are only a bit higher, is that normal? Is there another setting I can tick that can give me a good set OC without manually setting it myself? Im not familiar with oc cards

  • Constantinos Vasiliou

    I have the exact same Graphics card. So do u have temperature limit to 0 degrees Celsius and Fan on "auto" on these settings? Are those settings safe for that GPU?

  • Ash Blossom

    With the G1 Gaming model the manual OC tab overrides the OC Mode or do I have to turn on OC mode regardless?

  • Dominik Jurković

    Can someone give me a sweet spot for gtx 1060 3gb for oc? I am a noob.

  • Brent Stewart

    Was unable to get the same clock stable, but managed to get pretty close. Great upload, was able to breathe new life into my 1060 and gain an additional 10 - 15 frames on average.

  • George 5412

    For how much will the GPU last with that oc?(not exactly but a rough number would be nice)

  • djga98

    My pc crash after I add ur settings


    Mhh so I tried a whole day different OC settings and I got only a stable at +100 gpu clock and +500 on memory. tested with Unigines Superposition and Valley + Fortnite (for the moment). +110 gpu and +500 worked somehow in the benchmark software but fortnite keeps already crashing at the start of a round. Any recommends? I use the following:Gigabyte GTX 1060 Windforce OC 6G (6 pin)i5 8400MSI Z370-A Pro16gb ram (3000mhz)530w PSUhottest GPU temps i got was 72°CDrivers are all up to date (fresh PC)highest GPU Clock i got in benchmark/game was 2100MHz and Memory 4500 MHz (which some type as 9000 MHz)I started wondering if it's because it's a 6 pin only instead of the 8 pin model. I also set in my nvidia control panel to maximum performance.

  • LuckyTheMagnet
