    Alredy saw that video, but when I start to go up with memory clock and core clock my games don't open anymore, they just crash.
  2. What? - can you go up 10MHz in each?

    I can go up 10MHz with out crashing, but it doesnt make any diference in the fps, when I start to go to the numbers where I would get a difference it crashes.

    Go up another 10MHz then test it with Furmark or similar. Then repeat till it fails. Don't try large steps. If it fails, then go back to the last steps that worked.

    Ok, im going to test it. se if it works.
  6. Can i use 3d mark?
  7. Yep - there's heaps.
  8. Hey, i was testing and I noticed that at up 60MHz there are some flaws with the image, like some stripes on the screen thar are not sync, how do i fix that?
  9. Go back one step till it stops.

    Download and run HWInfo - Sensors and post the results - usually 3 screenshots in TinyPic or similar. So we can see if you'v got say temps or voltage problems.
  10. Your GPU is at idle

    Your PSU vltages are OK

    Your CPU is overclocked too much! Its getting too hot (67C!!!!!) Vcore is 1.36V
    Drop Vcore to 1.2V and check if your cpu temps are less than 45C
    Have you been trying to overclock your cpu too?

    Read up before trying any overclocking!!!
  11. I read about overclocking, but anyway, What is Vcore and how do i drop it? sorry I don't know these therms, I am new to this stuff.
    Yes my Cpu is overclocked, from 3.4GHz to 4.0Ghz
  12. You haven't read enough. Read more before trying more overclocking. Use Google.

    Read your motherboard manual. Go into Bios and drop the voltage - Vcore
  13. i droped, and my computer frozen, so I reset all the overclocking, now the cpu is running normal, with no overclocking.
    Im going to read more about it, but i really wanted to overclock my gpu, is there any thing basic that I can do it right now that gives a extra boost?
  14. You will know when you've done your research.
  15. Ok, thanks for the help
