    I tried overclocking my MSI 1080ti with Afterburner and it crashes PC2 and some other games. Even if I just bump it up a little. Turned it back to factory specs and it works fine for hours.

    In my case I was not overclocking my MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G at all. It was overclocked by design by MSI so I was not overclocking it and I was not aware that it is overclocked. MSI should use PC2 to stress test graphics cards. Now when I'm working on reference clocks I can really enjoy this game and I started to love it. The best sim that I've been playing for some years. Previous was Life For Speed I just love BAC Mono

    An easy way to get a little more out of your card (and keep it stable) is to use a custom fan profile to try and keep it under 60c and max out the power limit.

    The cards automatically boost clock speeds. Temperature and power-limit can hold back the automatic boost feature though.

    And it's always worth giving the card a bit of TLC if it's a few years old by giving it a good clean and make sure the cooler is working well and not clogged up (same goes for the CPU heatsink/fan)

    What do You mean TLC in this context? I'm not familiar with this shortcut. My GPU is reaching 72c. Is it ok for GTX 970?

    The rest of Al's post explains that

    In more detail, though, clear the dust out of the GPU. Best bet is to get a can of compressed gas (one designed for cleaning PCs etc, so that it is inert / non-flammable), turn off the PC, open the case and give the fans and heatsinks a good clean with that gas. If you can, hold the fans still whilst you clean them and the dust behind them, so that you don't accidentally over-spin them (it isn't good for their bearings - been there, done that, many many years ago). You can also use a compressor, if you have one, but make sure the pressure is turned way down and definitely make sure you are holding the fans still whilst blasting them.

    if you don't have a compressor and just like to blow things around.. IT Dusters do a good line in various blowing and sucking devices (something like https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01NBVOCXP will literally knock your socks off keep away from full cups, medium sized children and basically anything that isn't securely attached to the planet... )

    Definitely less messing about that getting to my compressor in the shed..

    I checked dust on the fans but there are no dust at all. I'm using dust filters in my case on intake fans and all dust is occupying those filters. Also I got support from MSI forum.

    So long story short. I updated vBIOS in my GTX970 and the game works with standard MSI clocks without any problems. I was testing some Very High details on several tracks with a lot of cars. It's too early to tell that the system is stable right now but I was playing for 4 hours without any crash. We will see in the next week when I'll have more time to play. If it will be crashing then I have many options now. I can use "debug mode" or I can tweak a little this new BIOS and set clocks to reference ones if problem will arise. For now I don't need to tweak anything. Thanks Guys a lot for Your help! The game is great!
