Solved First-time GPU Overclocker Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Overclocking Product Last response: April 30, 2011 2:03 AM in Overclocking Share flashfir April 23, 2011 1:17:00 AM Hi everyone, I have an HIS 5850 iCooler V http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-161-... I'm currently running MSI Afterburner ontop of my ATI Catalyst and I'm already OC'd on my processor but I have not much idea how to overclock my GPU. I'd like an overview to what it is, how to do it and if there's anything specific for my card that makes things different (like ATI vs. NVIDIA differences, etc) Any guides that might be helpful? Thanks in advance! *I'm currently reading http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/overclock-graphics-...

Hopefully you won't have to learn the same lesson the hard way. spike15_mk April 23, 2011 2:23:19 AM How did you manage to brick 2 cards?
