ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP
A couple critical notes before we proceed: as always, mileage will vary when overclocking, so be vigilant in monitoring temperatures and be sure to always test for stability after each incremental change. We recommend FurMark or MSI Kombustor for stability testing as they’ll draw more power and cause higher temperatures than your favourite game or 3DMark benchmark, so it is a worst-case scenario. Otherwise, run 3DMark Vantage or OCCT and see if it can pass a few looped tests for stability, but be sure to log and monitor the resulting temperatures.
We then settled in for some overclocking of the core and memory clocks and achieved the following result:
The ASUS DirectCU II TOP finished with a final stable overclock of 1070MHz Core and 1165MHz Memory, for an outstanding 30% over stock clock and 19% ahead of the factory overclock. The memory also did well, finishing with a 16% increase.
