This is my current stats: http://i.imgur.com/wkPfk1J.png
Its just abit more than stock speeds, but my question is really how i should go forward.
1: I know that when overclocking i simply only increase with 5-20 speeds max to check if its stable etc and if I see any artifacts, but before overclocking even more should I increase power limit % sliter to the max before starting? (+50)
2: Does increasing memory clock reduce the amount of core clock you can do? Will I get higher core clock If i skip memory clock, or do they both need to be increased? (core clock gives better results than memory?)
3: As far as I have been checking out as long as I dont touch "core voltage" Im not risking to burn or destroy my card?
So now going forward, what do you guys think/know, I wonder if its ok to put my Power limit % to max +50? Then I start adding higher clocks to core clock and memory clock.
Thanks in advance! Hope someone can help me out =)

1. + 50 Power Limit ALWAYS. Even if you are not OC'ing.

2. Try which memory strap the card maxes out. To do that, ADD +100 Core Voltage on MSI AB, and try the straps as, 1500,1625,1750, etc.

If you can make it to run at 1750, you are in to a good start. Do a GPU-Z render for a little load to verify Memory Clocks are stable at least.

3. Set Core Frequency to whatever value that allows no artifacts.

4. Adjust fan speed to your preference.

5. Tune down the Voltage for better temps that is suitable for your Overclock.

Anything above 7w/mk and the price goes up fast.

thanks for replying;

and yes, I've noticed that the price goes up as the pads are improve

It doesn't matter what brand...

Buy the Sapphire because it has the best cooler, simple as that.

good advice. +1

Cooling is better than Clocks. thumb.gif Clocks is all about getting either Lemons or Golds. While cooling is definitely needed.

Asic quality just means the percentile of your stock vid right? 70% means your stock vid is lower than 70% of other cards in the sample set.

There is a correlation between that and overclock ability but it's a fairly loose one.

The msi 390/x overclocks the best because it has 2 extra vrms. Right?

Nobody really knows. There is not correlation to better overclocks or anything.
