Hello fellow PC enthusiasts

I was wondering if my temps are safe for this card: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-E-Video-10031...

I have it OC'd to 780/1140 mhz. It idles at 40-45 Celsius, and playing Crysis 2 maxed for a half hour, reaches peak at 74 celsius. I was wondering how much head-room I have for overclocking further, and if you own this card, what is your OC setting?

I'll post my system specs if asked.

Hi,

I would suggest you try and keep the card's load temps below 85C so you still have some headroom for further overclocking.

I don't own a HD6850, but it seems many people can get 900/1150 or even more.
