Default In OC'ing ATI cards

They're preinstalled overclocking software in the catalyst control center, let's me overclock obviously. They mention how much I can, and sets a limit...I was wondering if oc'ing the video card would increase temperature any where else in the computer aside from the card.

if the hot air from the video card gets blown to another component, yes.

if it goes above 80, I'd start to be concerned.

If you get ati tray tools it will tell you temp of gpu and area. Get th ati omega drivers if you dont already, it has the ati try tools in it. Also the cooler is limiting you if its the stock one. A aftermarket cooler like a vf900 with some arctic silver 5 would be great for overlcocking. Plus the core can limit overclocking.

The Catalyst Control Center OCs the card only a scant 4MHz. Absolutely nothing to get excited over. Unless yours allows you to manually change the card's clock speed.

If your talking about ati tray tools, yes you can. You can adjust the fan speed to manual or set to certain speeds at temperatures, timings (dont play with them unless you 100% know what your doing), and clock speeds (can find max of core and mem, set it to w/e speeds you want, bench to get an idea where your at, and scan for artifacts. It also offers to dividers and you can manual fiddle around with them).

catalyst control center lets you change the fan percentage speeds based on temperature... and about the 4 mhz... catalyst let me take it to x1900xtx speeds... there is nothing wrong with the new versions of the catalyst control center.. although the resolutions on there dont seem to work.. i set it to 1280x1024 and it got all stupid
