Should I keep using CCC or just run Afterburner?
CCC doesn't let you underclock too much. It also has overclocking limits. I'll suggest that if you're gonna overclock, make a profile with the overclocks saved so when you want to use them, you can just load it up. Also, before you do that, (i assume they will surpass ccc limits) you should close ccc. Set powertune to +20% and apply, and then exit it (from task bar). Open task manager and end "ccc.exe" and "mom.exe". This way, if you crash, or whatever other reason, when you reboot windows, ccc will run the card at stock. This is because sometimes when you're testing overclocks and you crash, when you reboot ccc will load the unstable clocks and there will be an endless series of crashes, though its not too bad now. Once you're done make sure to open ccc again and hit reset otherwise your card will idle at the high voltage and clocks which will give you bad temps (50+). If you underclock you wont have to end ccc processes as it wont cause too much conflict. Make sure to drop the voltage to 0.9v. If its unstable at 400core/900mem at 0.9v then raise to 1v, but it should be fine. Mine was ok with it.
