recently i have experimented with overclocking my gfx card (radeon 9550 256Mb) so far i have got it to reach a core clock of 375Mhz and a memory clock of 270Mhz
now after having the side of my case opened i decided to run a bechmark with those overclocked settings,
i am using rivatuner and 3d mark to do this, after running the bench mark i decided to touch the card to see what the heat was like now i no this isnt really accurate on how high the temps are but i noticed that the GPU was fine it didnt seem to hot but the memory was really really hot to touch so i stoped the benchmark half way through and let it cool luckly i didnt do to much damage
are these settings pushing it a little to much? the original setting are a core clock of 250Mhz and a memory clock of 200Mhz the card only has a very small heat sink and fan on it so ima little worried that if i still was to overclock then i might damage it.
i hear that this card has the same GPU on it as the radeon 9600 is this correct and does anybody no what the actual specs are of that card?
so to recap am i pushing it to much?
what are the specs of the similar card?
thankyou for your advice
