Default Keeping My 9550 Cool

Okay I have finally figured out to OC my 9550, and I OC it by about 7 mhz a time. Can I tune it up by about 20-40 mhz w/out it frying? I have 1 stock case fan that runs pretty nice. I know it sucks, I need to get some more fans.

I would turn it up a bit more at a time and just crank down if it crashes

Remeber to test for artifacts, and WATCH your PC while testing.

CSS is great for artifact testing, a half an hour round will show any artifacts.

Yeah maybe. I can't really take the cover off because it has a sliding hinge so that is out of the question.

Like DJ-CHRIS said, just keep bumping the clock speed up, until you see artifacts. To help cool it you can get a PCI cooler card that sits in the place of a PCI card (next to your AGP slot) and it will blow air on your vid card.
