More about fast clocking gpu memory
  1. My old HD 6850's were at 1000/1200 with 1.3v for gaming.
  2. Don't really know what I'm doing, as I'm new to this kind of information. I had both set pretty high and it kept on freezing on me with gray and black strips. I turn it down some after. Currently I have it set at GPU 835 MHz and Memory at 1130 MHz. I do concept art on photoshop and edite videos on camtasia. Play games here and there. Any advice would be grateful!
  3. Then my advice is to do your homework before you start overclocking. By the way, your CPU is a notable overclocker as well.

    But anyways, for your GPU, you are going to want the latest beta version of MSI Afterburner. Also download the latest version of Kombustor. It has a very nice test suite for verifying stability.
  4. Thank You damric! Doing my homework as we speak.
