Overclocking HD 7850 OC edition

Hello, I already know that they overclocked this already but is it possible to push it further? I'm also curious if anybody who has the card to know how far they could push it.

Also I've never overclock so if someone could direct me to a good video or written guide somewhere that'd be great.

    It is a safe bet that it can oc more i have my asus 7850 at 1150 core clock with 5500 on the memory and 1100mV. I have no idea if that is a standard oc but you should be able to get at least past 1000mhz.

    still looking for a good guide when i did it i just google stuff for a hour or so and dove into it gpu and cpu both XD

    for that voltage, thats a very good overclock, if i were you id bump the voltage up and see just how high you can get, given that your card isnt running to hot.
  3. What temp is too hot?
  4. id say not over 70c but i try to keep under 55-60c. that just my prefrence though and i will try to oc to its max see what i get
  5. got it to 1250mhz and 1135mV but she was not happy put off a lot more heat for 1 more avg fps in furmark so back to 1150mhz
  6. Well the thing is I run Skyrim on Ultra with mods but black shards pop in and out from out of no where (I think it's called artifacts) and I though overclocking would help

    um... artifacts are caused by a too high memory clock.... overclocking will certainly not fix them, and artifacts usually look similiar to dead pixels

    thats a nice overclock you have there, good idea to drop back, just remember those numbers as bragging rights :D

    that sounds as though it could be a driver issue, try updating to the newest drivers or reinstalling the newest drivers if you already have them

  12. Sorry for the long reply but I had problems with my internet connection, so I looked around and I'm using MSI afterburner to overclock, and it won't let me push the core clock speeds past 1050 and the memory clock speeds past 1450, should I just set it there or find a way to push it further?
