and if there is better settings than this that i can do please tell me

no i mean the msi afterburner not nvidia control panel there is a bar called power limit someone said in a video you should do the power limit and temp limit to max should i do that?
You can crank them all the way up, if you wish, and it won't harm anything. The parameters will not exceed what is dictated in the gpu's vbios.
In other words, you can't kill the card unless you hack the bios or spill liquid on it.

Come on explain it a little better rgd1101,

But again :)
There is no “safe” oc cause it has many many variables to say its safe. Its like if you drive your car 120km/h on a 90km/h road is it safe?
Probably but a lot of things can go wrong.

You need to test and find out your “safe” settings, if the temps are ok under load (under 75-80c) and if it doesnt crash your computer i would call it safe.

+200 core clock is definitely not stable.
10 and 20 series cards should all be capable of +100 core. Past that, there's very little headroom.

The memory clock is what you can crank up, but did you work your way up to +800? That seems a little high.
Test with:
Msi Kombustor: if it finds errors/artifacts, turn the memory clock down. The longer you test for, the better.
Unigine Heaven: if you notice artifacts, turn the clock down. The longer the test, the better.
Asus Realbench: 8hr stress test run. It'll stop if it finds errors.

Silicon quality varies from card to card.
One card may be able to push +175, another can get 150, and one may not even be able to go over 105.
That's why you have to run your card through tests - you can't just apply someone else's OC.

oh so i need to figure out what is the best settings for my card like adding 40+ and see if it is okay then add 40+ again and so on right?

Yep.
I tried using a Msi's OC Scanner software, but found it was too aggressive with core clock OCs. My card doesn't seem to like core clocks over 110, yet this program kept pushing numbers like 130s, 140s - even 164, and they all said '90%' confidence, until I actually tested them...
Memory OC is what these gpus seem to like anyway, so not a big deal for me.

thank u last thing should i do the power limit to max in msi afterburner or not cause my card only take from pcie (75w only)

It doesn't really matter which one you choose.
-Adaptive: the gpu basically idles when it's not being used to save power
-Max Performance: runs at max regardless of what you're doing
Either one is better than the default Optimal setting.

I've a inno3d gtx 1050 compact and i use 200 on core and 800 on memory clock. Very stable in almost every game except project cars idk why it crashes in the middle.

Check the game forums if others have the same issue.

Also, some game engines just don't like gpu overclocks.
Setting between a lower oc like 180 CC and 500 for MC and its fine with 40-60 fps on ultra..somtimes drops to 20ies.. Idk why maybe my CPU is limiting.
