You need to download MSI Afterburner. Just raise the core MHz a little at a time and run something like 3DMark 11. If it crashes the card requires extra voltage which can be unlocked in the settings tab of MSI Afterburner. Keep a very close eye on temps as overclocking the card will cause it to heat up quickly and can damage it.

I did that and I also used Sapphire Trixx.
It just crashes.
How much approx voltage do you think I should stay within to get say 1100mhz?

Every card is different so I can't say at all. Considering stock is 1000 I would say probably not much.

Well most cards can do 100 on stock volts usually. Anything slightly higher than that is not much. WHen I get in benchmark mode I slam the volts all the way to the right and the fan always at 100%. I don't recommend that to people at all, but like I said each card is different. So each OC and voltage required will be different. I would Google your card to see how far others could reach and what volts they needed.
