Despite the pre-overclocked GPU, our sample of the MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK proved to have good overclocking potential. Without changing voltages, we increased its GPU frequency by an additional 80 MHz and its graphics memory frequency, by 1400 MHz.
The resulting GPU clock rates were 1191/1256 MHz in 3D mode whereas the graphics memory worked at 7408 MHz.
That’s the best overclocking among all GeForce GTX 760s we’ve tested so far.
In the automatic fan regulation mode the peak GPU temperature of the overclocked card was only 4°C higher. The fans accelerated by a mere 90 RPM.
Such an excellent result can hardly be achieved with any other GeForce GTX 760.
