Question Graphics Card OC

Hey Guys,
First of all my GFX is a Sapphire X1900XT 512MB.
I started OCing it and im at 662/1584 on the clocks.

My temps are 50c idle and 70c load,
Is this a good OC ? and how are my temps?

I'm using the ATI CCC, to OC I really don't go well with ATI Tool.... ( CCC, caps the OC at 800mhz RAM , and 690mhz on the GPU).

BTW im on the stock Heat sink.

Thanks,
Preacher

ATITool is incredibly simple... you just adjust the slides and click "Set Clock" a much better program since it heats your GPU to max temp with the 3D View button and it has an artifact scanner to make sure your oc is stable

A crash means its incredibly unstable...

Lower the specs from where it crashes slightly (sometimes mem gets maxed out early on) and then run the artifact scanner, if it crashes again then lower it again and repeat etc.

what are the temps? Never go above 70 if you can help it

try checking your fan speed, usually stock cards are set to run at minimal speeds such as 60% for nvidia 8800 cards

raising that will help your heat problem if thats whats limiting your gpu

is your card a double slot card? (meaning it takes up the space for two slots)

I have no idea about ATI cards sorry, if so then you can probably reach 80 for max temp in which case you can continue

I'd reccomend flashing 100% fan speed on your gpu bios or using some ATI program to set the speed to 100% (rivatuner works with ati?)

that'll lower your temps a lot if you don't mind the sound
