Stable Overclock for Sapphire 7970 Ghz Vapor X card?
I own a 7970 Ghz Vapor X by Sapphire. I am currently running on stock speeds... it is still VERY fast. However, I would like to OC it to really make the most of this card.
Without touching the voltage, what is a good clockspeed/memory setting to put the card to? I am planning on using the AMD Overdrive software that comes with the AMD Catalyst software. Also kind of a newbie.
My PC set up..

You cant adjust voltage anyway. Vapor-X cards are locked. Just increase the slider on CCC by 50MHz at a time, test with a GPU strestest like heaven bench while watching temps till you get artifacts or unacceptable temps. Keep it under 90C under max load.
I have the same problem with you
