okay so i was doing a little research on my GTX 560 Super Clocked and i download the precison tool by evga.
I realized that the next model up is a GTX 560 Super Super clocked and i wanted to overclock my GTX 560 to that level
the specs on mine during battlefield 3 1680x1050 high settings
core clock:850 mghz
shader:about 1700mghz
memory clock:2052 mghz

When i overlclocked it
900 mghz
1800mghz
2079 mghz

the overall tempuratur rose from about 65 celsuis to 75 celsius even with a fan speed at 40%. I was wondering if this is safe and if i should pump the fan a little higher.
in addition the FPS rose slightly with the overclock.

Looks like your Caps lock is stuck.... You'll want to fix that.

In reply to your temps. Those are perfectly safe. You could OC higher if you want. If you can live with the fan noise (I don't know how loud it is on your card) You should turn up the fan speed if your temps start to push higher.

I haven't used precision tool before but in most OC programs you can set a custom fan profile that scales with your GPU heat. I would do that so you can keep your temps under control and OC even higher.
