Overclocking

Much like all of the other GTX 760’s I put the MSI GTX 760 Hawk through our normal overclock testing. That means I tweaked to see how high I could get the GPU and Memory clocks while running the card through test two on 3DMark 11 for a short load test. All of my testing is with the power limit set as high as possible as well as the fan on 100% to make sure temperatures aren’t holding things back. I started with GPU Clock Speed overclocking and almost immediately hit my limit when I attempted a 200MHz offset as well as 150MHz offset. After some playing I found that 140MHz offset was the highest I could go without any crashes. This took my FPS up from 42.70 to 46.57.

On to memory clock overclocking I started extremely aggressive with a 300MHz offset and without any issues continued to push things up over and over. When I hit 600 I started jumping up in 50MHz increments because I was a little more worried that I was going to damage the card. Even so I was able to keep pushing the Hawk all the way up to an 850MHz offset before I had issues at 900MHz. That put my highest test result all the way at 3856MHz aka 7712MHz, a VERY impressive number. This is much higher than the 3602MHz I was able to eek out of the reference GTX 760.
