As above, 100% fan, & more voltage. Make sure temps are good enough that it can take an extra hot day when you aren't around to keep the PPD pumping out.
For quick testing a gpu overclock, I run the first 3dmart 11 game test, it pulls more power than anything else I've used, then a few loops of heaven during the hot part of the afternoon to make sure it isn't getting too hot.
With the 7970 & 680 both in the same rig it was tricky, with the 680 in the primary slot there was no way to OC the 7970, with the 7970 in the primary slot I can OC the 680, but can't increase the voltage.
The 680 did crash once yesterday, had to lower the core clock a bit & been fine since.
