Hey guys i have a 7870 hawk which is suppose to be a beast overclocker, i know that chips differ and some will do better than others. So far ive gotten to 1200 on the core and 1300 on the memory at 1.225 volts but any time i try and go higher i get BSOD's hardly ever does the drivers fail. Just wandering if anyone had some advice. peace out

well if ur comfortable modifying the voltage thats fine, but be warned it can and will damage ur card if u put too much voltage to it, and can permenently damage it.

also if its stable at 1200 core and 1300 memory, thats decent, you must also worry about ur temps when gaming. what temperatures are u getting at idling and full gaming load?

thats fine, just keep ur current settings and dont mess with the voltage or temps anymore.

if its stable and runs great dont fool around with it :)
