Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB
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 Palit Sonic finished with a final stable overclock of 1020MHz Core and 1110MHz Memory, for an excellent 24% over stock clock and 13% ahead of the factory overclock. The memory didn’t have much left in the tank though, finish with a minimal increase. This isn’t the best result we’ve achieved on a GTX 560 Ti but it is very good nonetheless.
