When I start increasing voltage do I need to go through steps 3-6 again for each the core clock and memory clock for every increase of voltage? If that makes since.

Ideally, yes, but you don't need to. It's a good idea to graph the maximum stable frequency to the voltage you're at, so you can see where diminishing returns apply.

ok... I'm really new at this, so I'm not sure what you mean by "...to graph the maximum stable frequency..."

I am running hd 6970, with the default voltage at 1175 mV, Core 880, Mem 1375 (at least this what MSI Afterburner has)
Using the guide I found it to be stable with a core clock at 960 and mem clock at 1510

I thought I would see if upping the voltage would help.

If I'm going to take my time, should I start with my stable OC or should I drop to stock and go from scratch?

Also, are those numbers ok or is my CPU hurting them?
I's I drop to stock and just up the voltage what should I look for to see when it goes to high?
Should I start with overclocking my CPU before I OC my GPU.

I should say that I've water cooled my CPU and the full Video card. OC with the numbers above, I was maxing out GPU 62c... I don't know what my cpu was...

Hi, I OC'd my 3850 to 701Mhz core, and I know it's stable, but I have one question. Whenever I turn my computer on, after it's been off, it goes back down to stock core. How do I make it stay?

you have to set AfterBurner to turn on and apply the profile at boot. or mod the bios of the card.

Your using MSI Afterburner right?

If so, go to settings; under the "General" tab, make sure that you have "Start with Windows" checked.
Click ok to close the window.
Look under the "Profile: 1 2 3 4 5 save" area at the bottom of the main window.
You'll see "Apply overclocking at system startup".
Click on that and a red light will light up to the far left.
The settings that are active at shutdown will now be active at your next boot up.

MSI Afterburner will start minimized in your Notifications section so don't worry when you don't see it up.

I hope this helps.
