I think you have to use Overdrive to OC em once they're in CF. But AMD GPU Clock Tool seems to have a card selection thing, so we'll see how that goes.

That is why I'm WCing em. They don't even hit the stock idle temp when they're at load.



I think you can set the clocks on the different cards by changing the device, not sure yet tho.

You use a software tool to edit the clocks from within the OS
http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads...Tool_v0.7.html
That is the tool I use. Just bump up the clocks by a bit and stress test it.

My max on stock cooling was 860 core and 860 mem. Make sure you edit the 3d clocks, not the 2d clocks. Also on the second page you can see the temps of the card.

Hmm...I didn't know that Rivatuner loosened the timings too...I read of an app that loosened the timings. Kinc was talking about it at XtremeSystems I believe. I OCed mine with Rivatuner for my OCed 3dmark run.
I'm with CD on this one, as I'm afraid to OC it 24/7 (well for now)

Wow, a risky thing to do. How do I know the max without blowing the card up?
Downloaded the software and I just tweak a little increase, but I havn't got 3dmark 06 running yet unless my files are restored(Which takes ages) then I can play around.
Have anyone blow up their cards using this?

The program is made by AMD/ATI. Your card won't blow up, it will lock up and either reset or you'll have to reboot. It shuts itself down before doing itself any harm. If you stay under 800/800 you won't see any problems.

To achieve higher speed like Kinc you need to have Liquid Nitrogen cooling right?
