Sensitive GFX card?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Everytime I go to bump my clock speed up by even 1 point, it seems like my card goes nuts. I apply the speeds. Then wait a moment, then everything "splits" on my monitor. Things are unreadable and my pointer becomes a block of lines. I don't have much cooling, but I'm wondering if maybe that's the reason my overclocking is unsuccessful. Opinions?

Retail companies like Dell and HP don't want you to overclock. Boo on them.

Yeah, yeah, I know. But I'm not overclocking the actual GPU. Does it keep the video card's clock speeds in it's BIOs, too?

I know for a fact that they use special motherboards that prevent CPU overclocking. Not sure about video cards. I think it has to do more with heat. They usually use cases with little to nothing of airflow.
