Overclocking

After overclocking both the EVGA and the reference card I noticed that the GTX 760 isn’t very consistant in its overclocking capabilitys. What the reference card overclocked well at the EVGA card did not and vice versa. Having the chance to see what the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce could do I was extremely curious to see if it would match the reference card or even beat the numbers I was able to get with it. I started fairly high up on the GPU and had to work my way down to an offset of 125Mhz for an overall clock speed of 1333Mhz, this was just slightly under the 1359 Mhz that the reference card was able to do and MUCh better than what I saw with the EVGA card. On to the memory I hard to push the limits all the way up to a 750 Mhz offset before it failed. I settled on an offset of 700 Mhz that put my memory clock at 3703 Mhz or 7406 Mhz, a very impressive number and higher than what our reference card was able to do. All in all the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce performed very well while overclocking, more importantly I think the Windforce cooling will come in handy when you settle on an overclock that you will run day to day.

One last GTX 760 to check out before the weekend!

as an owner of a gtx670 windforce card, noise of fans at 100% is not an issue. Even with my card overclocked to 1250mhz gpu and 6.8ghz memoory, mine rarely ever tops 50% on fans or gets over 70c. You listed it as a con to the card the noise level at 100%, frankly it will never get there, less he person has some serious case venting issues.
for a 760, windforce cooler might be a bit overkill. from tip of the rear bracket to end of the cooler is like 11inch's so its not a small card.

"But the cooling power of the card means that unless you set the fans to 100% yourself you will most likely never have to worry about that."

Yeah I agree, I mentioned the same thing in the review. But I mention it because some people like to turn up their fan speed manually, and if they do they its going to be noisier than the other GTX 760's tested.
