First Time Overclocking! Need Assistance!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I would like to overclock my new ATI 7950 3GB Video Card and I'm not 100% sure to do so exactly.

My main issue is I refuse to use software for overclocking anything with "Software" since I've read tons of incidents about them.

Thanks!

You cant overclock a vid card through bios, and unless you got a factory overclocked card, there is no hardware version. This leaves you with only software, or a GPU bios editor. Good luck with the bios editor since there is no way to test your max clock without software.

All the software OC horror stories come from CPU overclocking, there's no real alternative for gpus. You can just use CCC to overclock your 7950 to a point, after that you'll need more specialized software.
