How about this overclock?

Recommended Posts

The 980 is new enough that it has all of the built-in safeties, so you can get away with quite a bit as long as you watch the temperature.

 

1450 is pretty good, I know guys at work have hit 1480 stable on winning chip-lotto 980 cards.

 

The trick is how stable it is at those speeds. The way I do it is to adjust the clock up bit by bit and run it against Firestrike, then when it fails bump the voltage until it's stable or overheats... If the latter, just back down the clock a bit and call it good...

 

Then I run a stress test: about a half an hour of Firestrike usually works. If it passes that, then I figure it's a good OC. ;)

 

And yes, memory gives little return. Any time people adjust it, it's just to try and keep the card stable, not really to go faster.

The current Oc is very stable
