4870 Overclocking question.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN folks.
I got this 4870 yesterday, took the brand new heatsink and installed zalman GV1000 with MX2 thermal compound. It looks pretty nice with black finished and red LED.
Its idle temp is around 47 when temp @ 1800rpm, and it can be increased up to 3600rpm.



My question is this.
How can I overclock more

Thanks.

i like to know this as well, isnt there a simple hack for CCC or some 3rd party app like rivatuner or something that is fully going to support the 4800 series? And why is it taking so long compared to previous new grahpics card releases? Is it also possible to actually increase voltage through bios?

I do like the fact that this is the first card I've been able to completely max in OverDrive, but then I thought, this card probably isn't near it's max yet.

Although, stock cooler with fan at 55% = 31C idle.
