What is the best technique to use when overclocking a GPU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a XFX 6950 and tho I have been overclocking CPUs for a while this will be my first GPU overclock. What is the best technique to use? What do I raise first and why? What can I expect to get out of this card? Any advice would be great. Thanks ahead of time.biggrin.gif

I JUST REALIZED THAT I POSTED THIS IN THE WRONG AREA PLEASE DELETE IF YOU CAN OR TELL ME HOW. THANKS

I use Ati Catalyst Control Center for 6970..
Go to Performance Tab-Overdrive. Enable Overdrive, and you should see the GPU and memory clocks. Start raising GPU clocks first, raise like 10 MHz, then test it.
(i prefer OCCT for artifact testing)
Do this until you get graphic errors, then repeat the same progress with the memory. (GPU is more important, performance-wise)
