Overclocking MSI 6970 Lightning Video Card Tags: Radeon Overclocking Graphics Cards MSI Graphics Last response: October 28, 2011 2:08 PM in Graphics & Displays Share HiThereMyNameIsDave October 27, 2011 9:41:41 PM I'd just gotten my MSI 6970 Lightning video card last week. And i was wondering how high can I overclock this video card? 1. Is it possible to get this card to 1015mhz safely? I'm @ 980mhz right now, and I don't want to go any higher until I find out if it's safe speeds for this GPU. 2. Would I have to mess with voltages to reach 1015mhz? 3. What should my memory be @ to accompany the speed increase? 4. And what kind of software is available for stability tests, if there is such a thing? 5. Would this stress out my PSU at all? (XFX - XXX edition 650 watt power supply) B. I also plan on overclocking my CPU to 4ghz (or over), and also my RAM if possible More about : overclocking msi 6970 lightning video card amuffin a c 150 K Overclocking a c 109 U Graphics card October 28, 2011 8:09:45 AM Try Msi Afterburner and their stability tool. m 0 l Cygnus x-1 a b K Overclocking a b U Graphics card October 28, 2011 2:08:16 PM The speed is fine for the card as long as the temperature is good.
