Introduction We recently reviewed the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition video card, testing gaming performance with DLSS and Ray Tracing. In that review, we compared its out-of-box performance with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition and AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT. It allowed a very high 4K gaming experience, and a high 1440p […]

Hello Brent, greetings from Spain.
I recently get myself a new system that includes the following components:
- RTX 3090 FE with new padding (extreme Odyssey) and Artic MX4 paste.
- I5 12600K
- DRR5 Corsair 5600Mhz 2x16 GB
-1000w Corsair 80 Plus Gold
- Msi Z690 A-Pro
-1Tb 980 Pro Samsung Nvme SSD
I want to OC my 3090 with MSI afterburner and i cannot understand completely your article.
I want to copy your OC setting on the afterburner, may you help me?
Just 114% Power limit, +140Mhz Core clock and +750 Mhz Memory clock is that right?
Thanks a lot love your work.

Yes - that should work, however, every card is different. You may have to adjust your core and memory clocks. @Brent_Justice also tests overclocks with fans at 100%, so you can switch over from Auto to Manual and set to 100% if you'd like.

I usually try to max out the core clock first (which will be in the +100 to +150 range), then raise the memory. Since GDDR6X has ECC, you won't crash right away - you'll see performance start to drop if you go too fast with it before it crashes.

Okei, i’ll try like that. I wanted to copy a know OC setup since i trust all the test that Brent has done. About the fans speed, a custom curve from 30% to 100% ( maxed out at 83 GPU degrees Celsius) will work?
Thanks for your reply.
