Hello guys,
I have a question that what is the maxmium processor clock to set on this card because when i set it to 800 the games are working very smooth but after 4-5 mints the colours crashed and then the pc restarted then i check again and same thing happens but after i restore and restart the pc it was the same thing as before and i was like OMG!
Then next day no crashes no problem it was running like before but on default settings
So please tell me it is save to overclock it again and if yes tell me the best clock to set it with.
Thanks in advance.

the colours just means you pushed it too far, its kind of like the blue screen of GPU overclocking
just dont go as far, or raise the voltage if you can

then you have to raise the voltage, just make sure it dosent overheat the card, so try and say below 80C

it will shorten the lifespan some, but since your keeping it cool, and your not doing extreme overclocking, you will still get a long life out of it
