its at stock speeds:

500/1000mhz

Any idea what I can push this card to without having to change voltage / worrying about overheating?

In my case I have the fan on the GPU
and two 80mm fans, one exhaust on top, one intake on the left side panel.

I'm going to put a 120mm fan and redo the intake/exhaust..

Any idea? i'm afrad t "Test" it myself, cause I dont wanna hurt it.

thanks for any feedback.

Overclocking is a softly softly kinda thing no two of the same component will ever overclock the same and there are other factors. Raise the core clock first of all raise in small increments of 1 or 2 hz then check temp and card stability each time. Your memory is running at factory stated speeds at the moment ,but you can buy cards clocked at 1200 so slowly raise this again until it is no longer stable and put to the frequency that ran best, watch the temp and voltage.
Im pretty new to this stuff as well someone will give you more info and correct me if im wrong.

You use a benchmarking program, just find a couple that suit you will have one in the cards software bundle probably.

Will overclocking with the tab in my Display Settings actually overclock it?
