Question GPU overclocking

What's a good and quick program for testing GPU performance and stability while tuning it to its best frequencies.

RivaTuner?

From my experiences, if the card is clocked too high it'll just crash right off the bat

If your using an Nvidia card I would recommend EVGA Precision

EVGA Precision 1.9.1 download from Guru3D.com

Welcome to Tech-Forums, woltej!!!

Rivatuner is a great all around overclocking tool. And works with both Nvidia and ATi cards.

Though for Nvidia cards I found it much easier to overclock with EVGA Precision, like Slay suggested.

And +1 on Furmark to stress for stability. Heats up graphic cards more than anything. Be careful with that one.
