    1Does Precision X1 have OC Scanner?

    About This Software With a built-in overclock scanner, adjustable frequency curve, and RGB LED control, the new EVGA Precision X1 will unleash its full potential. Brand new GUI that is faster and easier to use.

    2Does EVGA Precision X1 need to be open?

    Yes, you can shut it down, but custom fan profiles and some RGB settings will work as normal (static fan speeds will work though).

    3How do I enable GPU overclocking?

    How to overclock your GPU: Step-by-step instructions.
    – Step 1: Launch your overclocking tool.
    – Step 2: Overclock the GPU clock.
    – Step 3: Overclock your memory.
    – Step 4: Increase power & temp limit.

    4Is MSI Afterburner better than precision X1?

    The MSI Afterburner also has a lot more functionality and settings than the Precision X-Even if you’re not overclocking your GPU, MSI Afterburner is still the best piece of software to use, in part because it not only helps you monitor your GPU temperature but also your CPU temperature and your FPS.

    5How long does OC scan take precision X1?

    You can start with default settings or, as some people suggest, start with the power and temperature target values (the sliders on the top right) to their maximum. Either way, press the “Scan” button and then go to make coffee or something since it will take 15-20 minutes.

    The final value is what you enter in the box below “CLOCK” in the top center of the main window’s box. Then administered some stress tests like the one in 3D Mark. If it mostly passes (as in the 90s), it’s likely that the overclock is correct. If you want to try again, try a bit less, like 10MHz. If you really want to push the clock speed, you might also try adjusting the voltage a little bit.

    However, you’ll have to adjust the memory clock by hand. It’s a similar concept, but you should start with 100 MHz increments, run a benchmark or stress test, and keep going until you crash, graphic artifacts, or performance stops improving.

    Make sure to save the profile when you’re done.

    Do note, however, that GPU clock speeds are more of a prediction than a complete clock.

    6Can you Undervolt with precision X1?

    If you set your undervolt in Afterburner and then bring up X1, it will open with the undervolted settings, then close the afterburner. The undervolt will be retained by X1 until you can control all three fans.

    7Does EVGA need precision?

    Not needed unless you want to change the lights. Without precision, the card will remain cool.

    8Will overclocking GPU increase FPS?

    Does overclocking GPU increase FPS? Yes, overclocking your GPU increases FPS for smoother, sharper graphics. Your graphics card will crank out more FPS at higher resolutions due to the increased computational power from a GPU overclock.

    9How do I know if my GPU is overclocked?

    The default clock speed of your GPU is listed in the Default Clock, while the Boost in the same row shows the default boost clock speed. If the GPU Clock readings are higher than the default Clock readings, your GPU will be overclocked.

    10Is GPU overclocking safe?

    Overclocking your graphics card is generally a safe option – if you follow the steps below and take it slowly, you won’t run into any issues. Graphic cards are now designed to discourage the user from causing any serious harm.

    11Should I use EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner?

    Conclusion. If you want to use EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner, you should be able to use either of them without having to worry. Both software packages are strikingly similar, and they both work in the same way.

    Yes, there are some minor differences that we have already discussed. On a side note, these RTX 2080s are capable of tracing ray traces with ease.

    12Is EVGA better than MSI?

    In the end, the MSI card is noticeably more costly than those that provide almost identical results. We choose the EVGA model, which costs ten percent less. For those who wanted to buy a regular 1660 version, the EVGA is the right option. On the other hand, the MSI model has much more connectivity options.

    13Does afterburner work with EVGA?

    Since EVGA has their own exclusive fan control, MSI Afterburner is unable to track the 3rd fan on the 3xxx series.

    14Is EVGA Precision safe?

    The program itself is safe as long as it is used properly. If you’re overclocking, take it slow until the card/system becomes unresponsive. It’s very unlikely that you’ll ruin your graphics card in this way.

    15How do I turn on OSD precision X1?

    In the top left corner of the Precision X OC window, there are “OSD settings” listed.
