You can use Coolbits and use the "Detect Optimal Frequencies" option if your unsure. All there really is to it is moving the slider and teseting.

I would do detect optimal, then run 3dmark or something. If you dont see aeny artifacts and your temps are ok keep going up

Try Rivatuner too if you dont like those other programs. Just bump up your core and memory clocks up slightly, test with a benchmarking program and if all is good, bump them up more. When you start artifacting or if your score starts dropping, stop ocing and go back to the last known good frequency.

The optimal frequecny will be different with every card, just test for yours.
