Hey all,

I've been trying to OC this card, have done so now too. The GPU clock is now 690 and Memory 1103 Mhz. I have had no errors running my games (Cod4/mw2) but somehow my 3Dmark06 scores are lower than on my stock speeds. (OC: 12664 / Stock:12679). The difference isn't that big, but for that much of an OC you'd expect something in the 13K.

My Specs:

CPU: Q6600 @3Ghz
Mobo: Maximus II Formula
GPU: 4850
PSU: 750w Corsair

What do you guys think?

It's just a benchmarking program; it has no affect whatsoever. If it performs fine in-game, I'd just leave it.

"Site note: Try underclocking it. See if you can hit 15k with an HD4850!"
