Optimize Graphic Cards For Evga Clock Speeds

Available for all modern EVGA graphics cards, the EVGA Precision utility allows you to tune the clock speeds to increase performance. Graphics cards undergo a series of tests to determine a stable clock speed, meant to ensure a low failure rate and long lifespan. In many cases, these cards can sustain higher clock speeds. The EVGA utility provides you with the tools necessary to increase your graphics card's clock speeds and test its stability.


Download and Install

1. Navigate your browser to the EVGA Precision download page (see link in Resources section).

2. Click the "Download Precision" button. This brings you to a member login page. Sign in to your account by typing your user name and password into the box on the left. Click the "Sign Up" link to create an account.

3. Click the "Open" button on the download dialog box. The installer will automatically run once the download has completed.

4. Click the "Next" button on the "Welcome to the EVGA ... " setup screen to open the "License Agreement" dialog box. Click "I accept ... " and then click the "Next" button.

5. Click the "Next" button on the "Choose Install Location" screen. If you want to change the default location, click the "Browse" button to select a different directory.

6. Click the "Install" button to proceed with installing. Click the "Finish" button when installation completes.


7. Click "Start" and then "All Programs." Click the "EVGA Precision" folder, then click the "EVGA Precision" shortcut to open the program.

8. Look at the numbers next to each of the four sections. These numbers represent the current clock speed for each element. By default, the program is configured to link all elements together. Configure them independently by clicking the "LINK" button on the right side of the program to deselect it.

9. Click and hold the slider under "Core Clock," and move it so the corresponding number is "10" higher. This will increase the clock speed by "10 MHz." If you are using the default "LINK" option, all elements will increase by "10 MHz."

10. Click the "Test" button. The utility will automatically test to ensure your EVGA graphics card can operate at that clock speed. If the test dialog box shows it succeeded, increase the "Core Clock" 10 more Mhz using the steps outlined in Step 3.

11. Continue increasing the clock speed and testing until you receive a dialog box stating the test has failed. Load a 3-D game and play it for a while to test stability further.

If a test has failed, move the slider back to the previous number that worked successfully, and press the "Apply" button to save your changes. You can also click the "Apply at Windows Startup" option. This option eliminates the need to change this setting every time you start your computer.
