The Afterburner is good program to use for OCing and I've personally used it to squeeze every bit of performance from mt GT 440

Increase the core and memory clocks by increments of 25, run tests (Kombustor, Unigine Heaven, games). If you see artifacts, roll the clock speeds back by 10, otherwise keep on increasing the clock speeds.

Also monitor your GPU temps. Remember that GPUs can operate at 80*c without problems for sustained periods but hitting 100* is a potential problem.

Hi.

Just use the HIS turbo program that comes with the card.

I have the same card and it runs very nicely at 1164mhz/5300. With the cooler that comes with the card my temps maxed out at 64degrees Celcius at full load wich is pretty nice.

I did however buy a custom cooler and the temps are down to 45 degrees full load wich is insanely sweet :D
