Hello there,

I've recently purchased a desktop, and have been looking through GPU tweak to overclock my graphics card. It runs at a standard clock speed of 900MHz with a memory clock at 4800MHz. Though the slider wont seem to overclock too high. Wondered if this is possibly because of my CPU?

My specs are:

ASUS M5A97 : motherboard

AMD FX 6300 3.50ghz: CPU

16gb Ram 1333Mhz: Ram

AMD Radeon HD 7850: GPU

Corsair H60 Liquid cooling

Corsair 600W PSU

To overclock the GPU further would I need to overclock my CPU to something along the lines of 3.8Ghz/4.2Ghz?

(Not to savy in this area so all the help you could give would be brilliant)

Thanks for your time :)

Using ASUS GPU Tweak Ver, All i get on the tuning tab is to:

Adjust GPU Clock
Memory Clock
Fan speed

Then apply, cancel and default etc
