What is "Stable"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been playing with my BFG 7800GS using a combination of coolbits reg. tweak and ATI Tool to test settings. But I'm really not sure what the defination of stable is. At the moment I'm running the card at 480/632.5(
1.27), max temp 70c,with an occational artifact, maybe one every 5 to ten minutes. While this may be acceptable to me I'm not sure it could technicaly be considered stable.

Also while tweaking should I be more interested in core clock speed or memory speed?

Is temp the only limiting factor?

Thanks I know this has been a mouthful.

You should be more interested in clock speed and any artifacts at all are considered unstable.

EDIT: No temp is not the only limiting factor. Some cards will not go as high as others. its luck of the draw.
