I know there are most likely a million threads and such on this and I have read them but forget, so I apologize in advance for asking about this. But to the point, I have a single 8800gts at stock and an e6300 oc'ed to 2.8 (light oc will bump it up some more in a month or so). Anyway I want to OC my 8800gts. I have downloaded Ati tool and my 8800gts runs at 52 idle....or as I am typing this...I have the fan speed bumped up to 100%. I also have a thermaltake armor series case and a Zalman on my cpu and pretty good airflow...my oc'ed 6300 never gets over 45 or so no matter what I am doing, counterstrike, quake 4 etc. But anyway....I know I bump up the core and mem clocks on ati tool and check for artifacts and monitor the temps of the gpu etc. So I guess my only questions are by what increments should I bump the core/mem clocks respectively after each artifact test........How long should I let each artifact test run......and what should my temp ceiling for my gpu be? Like when should i know to stop and keep my card below this temp? Thanks for ALL help and HAPPY NEW YEARS!
