post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
got this from new egg out teh door w/ free shipping for $208, installed, booted up (yay) and installed newest drivers. wanting to OC it, in the CCC i can adjust the clock speed, the memory clock and "power control settings" i have adjusted the clock to 1150 and memory to 1585, do i need to increase the "power control settings" bar? i can bump it up to 20% max, or do i leave this bar alone.

thanks for any help.

I would bump it to max. It just means that the extra power is available for use if the card needs it.
