Overclocking the MSI R9 270X – 31/01/15
I was able to overclock my R9 270X by a lot. I boosted the core voltage +100mV (although I will be tuning it down to protect the card), increased the power limit to 120%. Numbers wise, I was able to get a stable 1220MHz on the core, and 1550 on the Memory clock.
Performance wise, it increased the smoothness of Battlefield 3 in Noshahr Canals to a consistent 60FPS. Before the overclock, I only managed to get 60 on high running on the 270 with occasional dips to 55. I also set a custom fan curve since the AMD drivers were never ramping the fans up hard enough.
Overall I am really impressed with its ability to overclock 140MHz over its already OC’d stock clock speeds.
