I recently purchased a Saphire 6570 with 1GB DDR3. I heard that you could easily overclock these things past their 650mhz stock speed. So far I've been able to run a stable 845mhz with the video core averaging 50C. Something tells me I could push this thing even further; however, I'm not sure what would be considered a safe temp for the Turks GPU. Furthermore, I'm not sure the VRM would be able to handle the load, even if the cooler can dissipate it from the chip.

Also, MSI afterburner, the Overclocking utility I'm using, won't let me take it past 845mhz. What do I use to go further?

Thanks.

The low end GPUs have lots of head room. You could probably max it out with no ill effects.

textfield, the reason msi afterburner won't let u go past 845 mhz is because that is the maximum limit for your graphic card.And the reason your video core is averaging 50c is because you're just staring at the desktop(I might be wrong though).If you use a benchmarking tool or play a game you'll notice your graphic card's temperature increasing by 10-30C

The 50C is actually at load (DX11 Heaven). I was surprised too. I figured something with a cooler and fan so tiny (and quiet) couldn't possibly cool that well, but apparently it can.

I average about 30C at the desktop.

Sometimes I wonder if that thermistor is off, but this is a brand new card.

Anyway, is there any utility that will allow me to go past 845Mhz? Is that a real limit defined by the Turks chip, or is that in a rewritable BIOS?

I haven't really digged up into the BIOs lately so I have no clue if that is the max limit but as far as I know msi afterburner is one of the most popular and efficient tool out there so I guess that would be your max clock.
