Use Catalyst Control Center. It's the easiest/safest way to OC a GPU. Plus, it doesn't let you OC high enough to cause any damage to your GFX card. Just click in the "ati overdrive" panel to enable overclocking.

If you wanna push it further try Rivatuner or ATI Tray Tools. Run furmark or ati tool stress tests to test your clocks. Its very worth it to overclock

overclock is good when you know you have the cooling power to ensure your card doesnt start losing performance due to heat. use ATI tool to check for artifacts when you test ur new clocks

So i Take It that It Is ok to overclock an allready factory OverClocked Factory Card.

Also Where can you find Gpu Temps It did not show up in P95 Nor did it in Everest (unless i did not look hard enough)

Also What an good GPU Temps

I gettting my stuff Oc One at a time

Got The CPU Down
And The Ram

Now For the GPU

ATItool shows the temps as well as GPU-z -- definitely get them both if you dont have them already.
