The 7000 series video card has power saving features built into it. Use GPU-Z and right of the Bus Interface is a blue ? mark. click on it and start the render test and it should go up to x16. Or you can go to Catalyst Control Center and click on Infromation then click on Hardware and it tells you the max speed of the PCI-E.
What chipset is that AsRock Extreme3 you have?

go slow on overclocking 10Mhz~ 20Mhz or x1 multiplier in each increment n testing each increment for atleast 20 mins with prime 95 blend well you hit any of the following walls


  1. Heat hovers around 60C
  2. max FSB or Reference Clock
  3. max multiplier

start fine tweaking with the FSB n the multiplier n find the perfect combination of it

n then overclock your CPU-NB n lastly tighten your RAM timmings n test the RAM stability with memtest+ 86 for atleast 2 3 rounds n make sure you have the bootable version of memtest+ 86

Hope that helped thumb.gif

safely voltages are


CPU 1.5v many say 1.55v but not recommend for 24x7 oc

RAM 1.65v

CPU-NB 1.35v if temps are ok then 1.4v at max

you have a unlocked cpu so try setting everything at stock settings n then just increase the CPU multiplier
by 0.5x or 1x n reboot until you the point you cant boot up go a step down boot n see if its stable if not then add 0.05v or the smallest increment n see if its stable
BTW you got a 5+1 Phase VRM motherboard so dont except huge overclocks a mid overclock of 400Mhz to 500Mhz would be ok over that your motherboard vrm might throttle or and really start heating up which may lead to vrm failure even if your motherboard has a pretty decent build

Here this should help you a little
