Test Setup and Overclocking

Zotac GTS450 AMP! Review

Test Setup

For our testing today we're using our standard X58 setup. Alongside the Zotac GTS450 AMP! we are also testing a stock GTX460 and a reference ATI HD5770

Intel Core i7 930 @ 3.6 GHz
6GB Kingston Hyper-X T1
ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme
Corsair AX1200w
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Prolimatech Armageddon with Arctic MX-3

Overclocking

As you can see from the GPU-z, this Zotac comes pre-overclocked to a stunning 875 MHz, so we're not expecting enormous performance overheads available for overclocking.

So it proved. Despite our best efforts we could only eke a further 30 MHz out of the core, although the memory managed to accept a whole 100MHz overclock which should really help the GTS450 breathe at the higher settings.

Perhaps the most important aspect is how cool it all remains. Overclocked and using the Furmark burn test the GTS250 AMP! still only hit 63°C. So it's definitely cool. Time to see how it performs.
