I'd be interesed to see how much I can get out of this video card but I'm a complete noob ( I mean complete) when it comes to this stuff. I would be woried that I would ruin this new machine I just had build last week...lol
If OC'ing was totally risk free, I "might" try it on this card, but not at the risk of throwing away hard earned cash that this rig cost me.
Overclocking is quite easy on gpu's.
Though its been years since i've had an ati card, but with my nvidia card, I found the highest sold factory overclock. I then set my fan speed at 75%, and boosted my core/shader clock and memory speed up 20Mhz and ran 3dVantage. Watching the temps, keeping under 80C.
If it passes, I note my score, mainly gpu scores, then bumped my clocks up another 20mhz and tested again.
Keep doing this till your temps get too hot, or Vantage fails. Then back the clocks back to the 2nd last good run. If you want to fully tweek, this is where you then bump just the memory and run... if it fails then go back and bump just one setting and find which crashed you, then continue upping the other...
I also never set my overclock to run at startup, that way, if it buggers, a reboot will erase it.
Its worth the time effort as its free and easy performance.
