Sup, guys! Well, I got my 7850 a few days ago and I love it! I thought I would do some overclocking though using MSI afterburner in preporations for FarCry3 which I got a free copy of with my card. Without changing the voltage at all, I was able to achive 960mhz core clock and 1310mhz memory clock and I could probably push it farther, but I'm being on the safe side. When I tested it on furmark using the 15min benchmark, I scored a 2645. My max temp was 73 degrees C and 56% fan speed. What are some of the numbers you guys achived? Just want a little comparison as this was my first ever overclock. Any tips to get the overclock farther safely? What would be an acceptable temperature while running the Furmark benchmark; is 73 degrees too hot? Will my GPU really get that hot while I'm running an actual game not a stress test benchmark? Thanks guys!
