First time OC a GPU (5830)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all
i have an ASUS EAH 5830 and i need some extra performance
so heard that OC will give me more out of my GPU but i`v never OC anything before
i did the Auto Tune in CCC so it changed the clock from 800 to 870 , and the memory some more
so is this safe ,should i keep it that way or its OK with more
what problems i might get doing a OC?

my GPU temp is (38 idle)

sorry for the many questions i`m just new

Thanks

Your overclock is fine for a first-time-overclocker, but you could probably get some more out of your card. If you go too far your card will crash and you will see lots of artifacts and a dramatically increase of the temperature.

thanks
but the real question are how much OC will considered safe?
and does this 70 more made by Auto Tune give any noticeable difference or i need more?

this one is stupid but what does the CCC Auto Tune do so it will detriment what is the appropriate OC level?

thanks again for help
