Overclocking MSI 7870 Dual Fan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've recently bought a MSI 7870 and I want to overclock it.
I probably want to overclock it to 1100-1200 mhz.
But I don't know if it's cooled enough. The version of the MSI7870 I have is a dual fan.
I don't have extra cooling, just the 3 Sharkoon T28 case fans.

My other specs are:
Case: Sharkoon T28
CPU: AMD-FX6300
GPU: MSI 7870
PSU: XFX Pro 550 watt core edition
Mobo: Asrock 970 pro r2.0
Ram: crucial ballistix tactical 8gb 8-8-24 latency

Is it save for me to overclock it to 1200mhz?

Hello and welcome! I like your username lol tongue.gif

What I would do is to download latest version of MSI Afterburner and set volt as high as possible for Core, then try to squeeze out as much as you can on coreclock.
The cooler for your 7870 should do the trick, especially if you make a custom fan profile that is a little more aggressive than the stock one.

Just try to keep temps at 85c max, but really you can go up to 90-95c safely.
