The max I can set my 7900GS is 605/843 using the TEST button on Rivatuner. Anything higher and it will give me a pop-up saying I need to lower the numbers. So does this mean I can't go above these numbers no matter what GPU tweaker I try? It runs fine though. No artifact or freezing.

Riviatuner is weird. It lets me set my card higher sometimes if I click test like 5 times...it'll fail 4 times then pass the 5th.

Different drivers will let you go higher but you really just go until you see lots of artifacts popping up everywhere.

I'm using NGO 93.71 right now. I'm pretty satisfied with the numbers. Just wondering if I can go higher..

Power strip will let you try almost any settings, but i caution you if you do not really know what your doing. You need aftermarket cooling to push your clocks hard, and a good knowledge of when to stop. Otherwise youll just toast your card.

Actually, just wanted to let you know, you can't toast your card by just overclocking.

*EDIT*

Take a look at the NGO 84.56's (or just the plain ones) on Guru3D.

My EVGA 7900GS doesn't seem to want to go past 60 temps on stock volts at 625/845. They make so good cards heh.

EDIT: Also gonX is right, it's impossible to fry your card on stock volts. It will just artifact like a mother if your clocks are too high. You actually have to physically mod the card in some way to fry it.

Yeah, stock cooling has seriously advanced over the past years
They'll end up at water-cooling temps in the end!

PS. Even when I tried to run my FX5200 at 1.43 GHz, it just artifacted like a mofo and froze whole the system.
