Assuming you have low temps, what actually stops you from going even higher in clocks at a certain point?

What makes the chip stop working?

Diminishing returns.

>What makes the chip stop working?

Excessive voltage and heat degrades the lifespan of it and ultimately damages it.
>>
System stability, power consumption, lowered component lifespan

>tfw msi 750ti twin frozr
>tfw hitting 1425mhz and max load temp is 49c
>tfw cant clock any higher because locked voltage

I tried to switch the BIOS once but it didnt work.

>>51528728
I hit 1500 but the heat and power consumption was way to high to justify muh 75 mhz

Your assumptions are wrong
>>
>>51528363

Digital gates and datapaths can only be so fast. Even with perfect power/temps, if you're triggering a gate too fast, it won't have changed it's output to the correct value before the next trigger hits.

This. Components all have bandwidth limitations. Once you exceed spec you things are going to operate how they were intended to, Even if you manage to keep the temps down.

does the 750ti not overclock like other maxwell cards? my 970 gets to 1500mhz boost clock without any voltage change. it can go even higher in synthetic tests like furmark and evga oc scanner, all without a noticable change in heat output/power consumption

*its output
