Explained: How To Overclock With EVGA Precision?

If you have an EVGA graphics card, you might be wondering how to overclock it with EVGA precision. In that case, you should read our guide.

Expert Verified By

Overclocking your graphics card can be an effective way to boost its performance, allowing you to get more out of your gaming or graphic-intensive tasks. If you’re using an EVGA card, learn how to overclock with EVGA Precision.

EVGA Precision is an overclocking utility explicitly designed for EVGA graphics cards. Besides this, it offers GPU monitoring, overclocking, voltage control, fan control, custom fan profiles, On-Screen Display (OSD), automatic overclocking, custom skins and themes, hardware support, and many other features.  

Key Takeaways 

  • EVGA Precision is an overclocking and monitoring utility for graphics cards.
  • It allows for easy customization of GPU settings, including the core clock, memory clock, voltage, fan control, and more.
  • Stress testing and monitoring GPU temperatures are essential to ensure stability and prevent overheating or system crashes. 

How To Overclock With EVGA Precision? 

We performed the overclocking of our EVGA GPU using EVGA Precision software using a comprehensive technique. While following the process, ensure not to miss anything, as it may affect the outcome. 

WARNING: Overclocking can damage your GPU, so make sure to proceed at your own risk.

Prepare Your System 

Before you start overclocking, make sure you have the following prerequisites: 

  1. Graphics Card. 
  2. EVGA Precision software.
  3. Stress Testing Software, like FurMark or Unigine Heaven.
  4. Updated Drivers
  5. Proper Cooling and Airflow. 

Backup Current Settings

Prior to overclocking, save your current GPU settings as a profile. After setup, open EVGA Precision; you will find a window with settings and monitoring options. Default settings are automatically saved in the software, allowing you to revert if something goes wrong.

Overclocking 

We used simple steps to proceed with the overclocking, as many users under a YouTube video also found it helpful:

  1. Launch EVGA Precision > Tuning.

  2. Increase the GPU Clock, ideally by 10-20 MHz at a time > click Apply. 
  3. Monitor your GPU’s temperature and stability in the OSD.  
  4. Continue increasing the GPU Clock and Memory Clock and testing for stability each time. 
WARNING: Make sure not to raise the GPU Clock too high too quickly, as it can lead to instability. If your system becomes unstable or crashes, it’s a sign that your overclock is too aggressive.

Stress Testing 

To ensure the overclocked settings are stable and safe, we did a stress test on the GPU. Launch a stress testing software and run the stress test for a few minutes while monitoring temperatures and stability. You can disable GPU overclocking if something seems wrong.

Tip: If your system crashes or exhibits artifacts (visual glitches), it’s a sign that your overclock is too high. We recommend you lower the clock speeds and try again.

Finalize And Save Settings 

Once you’ve found stable overclocking settings that ideally meet your performance needs, ensure to save them. On the right-hand, pick the number you want to save your current settings to and select Apply.

Monitoring and Maintenance 

After overclocking, monitor GPU temperature and performance regularly for stability. If issues arise, revert to default settings. Remember that each card’s maximum stable overclock varies, so we always prioritize stability over extreme performance gains and exercise caution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Overclocking With EVGA Precision Safe For My Graphics Card?

Overclocking with EVGA Precision can be safe when done responsibly and within the GPU’s limits, but it carries risks, so proceed cautiously.

Can I Use EVGA Precision With Non-EVGA Graphics Cards?

Yes, you can use EVGA Precision with non-EVGA GPUs, but it’s most optimized and feature-rich when used with EVGA cards.

Do I Need To Constantly Monitor My GPU After Overclocking?

While it’s not necessary to constantly monitor, periodic monitoring is recommended to ensure stability and detect any potential issues with your overclocked settings.
