I use OCCT... If it passes that without any errors then the clock can pass absolutely anything you throw at your video card.
You can go higher for benchmarking but the video card is not 100% stable 24/7. I know this because I ran .975v at 800/1600 and it runs for gaming but fluffs up like dandruff in OCCT... Turns out that a month later my overclock freaked out and mass artifacted/froze my screen in BFBC2 so now I use OCCT and I get 1.025v stable at the same 800/1600 with NO problems EVER.. OCCT stable = 100% 24/7 stable.
Time to work on pushing from 1.05v at 830/1660 to 1.1v tonight.
I will let you all know how my VRM's handle it. I expect to get about 860 - 870MHz on the core stable.
