What am I looking at for an average safe overlock for a 1 GB XFX 7850 ? I have never overclocked an AMD card before. I decided to use MSI Afterburner to do it cuz I am used to that software btw. In regards to the pc this is being overclocked in (my son's pc) well the cpu, an AMD FX-6300, is overclocked to 4.2 GHz thus far without voltage changes. The case I have for the build is the Antec 1100 and everything inside stays nice and cool. I also have to say that for the video card fan noise does not bother me. It is not an issue so if I can get more out of the 7850 by maxing the fan I will do it.
For my first attempt with the card I went with 898 core clock 1215 memory clock. I am seeing some information elsewhere that a guy got this exact same card I have to 1035 core clock 1300 memory clock with temps in the 70s. How extreme is that ? Is it reasonable to think my card can do the same ?
Furmark test 1 : 73 degrees Celsius 15 min test 1920x1080 AA 8 samples .... 898/1215
