Hi all! This is a quick and simple question. I was overclocking my Sapphire HD 6870 and I don't know if the stress testing utility that I was using can test the memory clock to see if it's stable (I use OCCT.) If it doesn't can anyone recommend me a good utility that can do this and give me an error count if possible too? Thanks! :D

Hi,
Use Furmark stress test for stability test and temp test. It is very good soft.

I've tried Furmark but it doesn't give a error count. Also I'm not sure if any of them even test the memory clock that I've set to actually tell me if I can go higher or if I need to go lower...

Depends on gpu temp. If temp is good enough enough you can go higher.

Umm...from my stock clock to almost a hundred mhz up for the mem clock, I get no temp changes at all.

Furmark will test memory clock too. Just check mine. Try 3-4 hours test for better temp result.

Why is Furmark better?

Furmark is widely known as a good gpu stress tester after overclocking. It can put full load on gpu.

Prime 95 is for cpu and furmark is for gpu.
