Because there's a lot more in play than just the GPU..the VRMs, power delivery, how the bios is set up, quality of the overall card....all of them and a couple hundred other things play into how well they'll overclock.

On the Core i'm at 1380 Mhz and the Memory 7.1 Ghz. I had the Core at 1443 and it ran stable for a little bit till my system ended up crashing, so I lowered it a bit. I haven't messed around with the voltages yet to see how much higher I can go.

Put the memory back to stock setting and try the core OC again.

I have the G1 with Samsung memory (69.9% ASIC) but it overclocks like ****. Is it due to CX600 PSU? My airflow is also **** so I keep the side open, collecting dust.

Any specific tips on how should I go about OCing to achieve good results? I'm passing tests (Furmark, Fire Strike) fine with like 1500/8000 but I get freezes or driver crashes while gaming, and that's with +25mV (haven't flashed BIOS).

Just FYI in some cases, removing the side panel actually hurts your cooling since the intake fans can't force the cool air to move where you want it to, also the dust.

Both core and mem clocks are very high. ANd Furmark/Firestrike are no good stability tests. Firestrike not at all because it throttles from the beginning.

My OC doesn't throttle at all during Firestrike. I don't think that is a fair statement to make. If it is throttling, there is a reason(Power/Voltage/Temp/OC too high/etc). I can run it at my everyday OC of 1506/8000 or 1560/8200, and have no throttling issues.

have no such issues, have yet to see my card throttle down once, I would suggest you look into other factors like power/voltage/temp issues

Temps are definitely lower with side open, CPU and GPU idle at <30C. CPU (i5-2500 with stock cooler and turbo boost) temps still go high (went up to 82C once during a game) which seems to be the fault of the GPU generating heat (temps were lower with Radeon HD 6870 OC). Anyway, collecting dust seems to be my only choice at the moment, until I get a proper CPU cooler installed.

Anyway I'll keep on attempting to OC the 970 and find out stable limits (with no BIOS flash) and get back here for advise (as I'm sure they'll be low).

SOrry, i meant furmark. It causes unrealistic load and throttles very fast.
