Try to stay clear of Furmark as a whole. It pushes your card to an unreasonably-intense load that can possibly harm it. Run Unigine Heaven several times, run a few graphically intense gaming benchmarks, or just play a few graphically intense games for awhile to determine stability (watch for artifacts and crashes).

I recommend NOT using Furmark. I just mine Litecoin.

OOPS! so using the burn-in test as a test of overclock stability is not a good idea?

Furmark generates too much heat in my opinion. I'm running OpenCL compute operations on my GPUs and they're locked at 100% 24/7. This load is greater than any gaming load, but the temps stay reasonable. Yet after five minutes Furmarking, my temps exceed what they do in a real-life full-load situation after 24 hours, so in my opinion, their burn in test burns a little too much.

EDIT: I didn't mean to imply that you had done anything wrong, plenty of people use Furmark and like it, I'm just not one of them.

the reason i asked this was i had my 460 @ 930/1860/2100 @1.087v
played crysis2 for a couple of hours and it hovered around 61C
ran furmark and it shot up to over83C in about 1 minute
