Hello guys, I am new here as you see and I am also new on OCing.

Just bought HD 7870 OC version from Gigabyte and got the driver for it from the web.
I see it has something called AMD overdrive. I saw a guide about overclocking : http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_radeon_hd...

I tried to overclock my GPU with the same settings as describes at the guide, but I got a problem.
When I was playing sleeping dogs for some minutes it kept crashing and a blue screen appeared on my screen. I am not sure if I should overclock my "already" OCed GPU. I was wondering if you guys had the same problem with AMD overdrive and if you could help me a lil bit :D

Check your temperatures of your graphics card with GPU-Z. If it's overheating, then we found your culprit. Anything about 90 is bad.
