My 1st Oc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just did my 1st oc and the max i put my 2900xt 512mb to was 821 core and stock mem(828). Im not sure how high i can go. Im on stock cooling but i run the fan at 100% and it hasnt seen a temp of above 60 c yet which is good considering they can run at 90c. Well i have a 600watt psu so idk if i have to up the volts or something. Im new to ocing. My full specs are under this post as most of u probably know.

Move your overclock up with small increments and use ATITool to scan for artifacts in between (if you see no artifacts for 10 mins or so, up your OC a bit). I wouldn't run temps over 70C tho.

For the card to go any higher than that, you need a volt mod (wouldn't do that without aftermarket cooling tho). We have a special section for that. Click
I'm not sure if there is anyone with a voltmod on your card tho
