Default Test Stability?

What's the best way to test an overclocked GPU's stability?

Play the most graphically intensive game you have at the highest settings + res.

Though I imagine there are gpu equivelants of intel burn test.

Playing your favorite game and looking for artifacts is always great.

ATI tool.
ATi Tool 0.27 b2 download from Guru3D.com

run the crysis benchmark over and over looking for artifacts.

Even 3Dmark will be a good test.

So far, I ran Crysis Benchmarks, on Low all the way up to VeryHigh with MSAA x4, didn't notice anything 'odd' about the image. ATITool keeps getting errors, but even with my card at stock speeds. I'm going to run the demo of 3DMark06, and see what happens there.

This is the card I have, I do have to say it was an upgrade from my 4650 that I had.

So far I have got it up to 620/990/1550, fully stable. Won't go up to 650/1050/1625, but I'm goin' higher and higher...

Up to 630/990/1575

Is that core/memory/shader?

My stock in that order is (according to EVGA Precision): 625/900/1565.

Yeah, I had to lower my core to 620, but I'm now at 620/1000/1550 and climbing back up.

I've been using FurMark's stability test to verify numbers.

EDIT : I'm pretty sure I hit a wall. Can't go past 623/1000/1557. Keeping at 620/1000/1550

About a 12% overclock. I think it's just because of the card though, since it's the "energy efficient" version, and it pulls power from the motherboard, and not an external power source.
