I'm quite new to overclocking so I am using AMD overdrive to give my 7850 a slight increase in power, thats all i want to do, so please dont reccomend me another overclocking software. Anyway right now in overdrive I have:
Gpu clock set to 1000 Mhz
Memory clock set to 1350 Mhz
Automatic fan control, as i think it does the job pretty good.
Power control at 0% default setting.
I shouldnt need to increase the power control setting if im not experiencing artifacts or crashes etc? Its been running fine on battlefield 3 at ultra so far.
My PSU is a 650w And I have an i7 at stock clock speeds, that should be all the info required, thanks in advance for your advice.
if you havent touched the voltage on the card then it is pretty hard to hurt the card no matter what settings you put the core/memory at....it will just crash if it cant handle it and even then you are not hurting it unless your temps are crazy high...which i doubt is the case in this situation..if you could just post your temps in game that would eliminate all doubt that your settings will hurt the card
