Default Overclock Temps on 8400 GS

Hey guys,

I just decided to try to oc my 8400 gs today (please, don't laugh).

Stock was 450/400 at 55 degrees/61 degrees under load. I pushed it to 521/450 and it is passing all stability tests but the temps are around 72 degrees under high load. Is this too high?

Thanks for the help!

1. Thanks. I wasn't sure if 8400 gs and 8800gts temps differ.
2. 2.4 ghz was waaaaay too fast.

Do you notice any difference between you card stock and your card OC'd?

I was jk'in. I actually have a decent comp excluding the video card (new one soon!). I do see a significant jump in performance. I went from 27 fps to around 66 fps on one stress tool: Video Card Stability Test - Stress Testing & Benchmark the speed of your 3D graphics video card
