Like many overclocking utilities, Gigabyte OC GURU II allows you to monitor and manual set GPU/Memory clock speed and voltage. You can also manually set the fan speeds as per temperature.
You can manually add voltage with intervals of 0.0125v. There are seven LED options and 1 multi-LED light options, along with LED effects such as Breathing, flashing and Dual flashing.
The clock speed presets are ‘Eco’, ‘Gaming’ and ‘OC’. The high preset (OC) gives a base clock speed of 1190MHz. ‘Gaming’ clock speed profile is enabled by default, which switching to OC profile requires the utility.
Note that Gigabyte has something that they call it as ‘GPU Gauntlet’ (with a trademark icon) sorting. As per their words, Gigabyte SOC (Super Overclock) graphic cards guarantees the higher overclocking capability.
Using the OC GURU II utility, I was able to get it to +160MHz boost. In the end, it gave 1312MHz base/1401 MHz boost clock speed- a 10.25% increase compared to OC profile’s base clock and 31.2% compared to reference version’s base clock.
