Question Total noob to overclocking.

As I understand it, 2060 has a base mem clock of 1750Mhz. But I'm confused by varying reports of stable overclocks. For example, someone will say that they get +800Mhz, but then they report their final number as something like 2100Mhz, or even 8000Mhz, which obviously doesn't add up. (You would think it would be (1750+800) 2550Mhz. So what gives?

Thanks.

Yep.
1750 x 4 = 7000
2100 x 4 = 8100

Dual data rate you'll see on ram:
A 3200mhz kit - 1600 x 2
3600 = 1800 x 2
Hey while I've got ya, can I ask you a question about voltage?

Do you have any experience with the outer vision PSU wattage calculator? Can you give me a ballpark suggestion of what to set the "overvoltage" slider at to achieve an optimal overclock? Thanks.
