Default Overclocking my BFG 6800 OC

Hey, I am trying to overclock my video card the 6800OC from BFG (posted below) and have unloced the pixels from Rivatuner to 16x1,6vp which I believe means all the pixels are unlocked. HOwever anytime I try to increase either the mem speed(700) or the core speed(350) it tells me that the speeds are unstable and to reduce them. I tried to reduce them below the default values and it told me that those were unstable as well, and when I moved it back to the default values it said they also were unstable, but it runs fine when I hit the back to default button. Any help on how I can increase the speeds would be great. It's an AGP card which I was reading apparently gives me a better chance of Oc'ing it.

Try uninstalling rivatuner, downloading the latest version, and reinstall it. I had the same problem with mine, i did that and it fixed.

Good Luck with your OCing.

So i managed to overclock the card from 350->375 and kept the memory the same and my GPU results in aquamark were lowered and the temp of the GPU went up to 61oC. Any suggestions for lowering the temp/// increasing performance?

which one do you recommend. I was looking at the Arctic cooling 5 rev 3 or do you think one of the different ones might be the way to go?
