8800gt,701Mhz @ 78°C --> should I go further?

518 13
hey all

I'll keep it short

I have a stock Oc'd 8800gt of MSi (660Mhz, 950Mhz memory and 1650Mhz shader) which ran up to 96°C with stock fan at 29% under load.

I further OC'd it, 701Mhz core, 1752Mhz Shader (linked with core), and 1004Mhz memory. I put the fan at 100%.

In furmark, I did the stability test.
1280*1024, No MSAA, Xtreme Burning mode (supposed to 'xtremely' stress the core) and ran it for 1 hour.

It maxed out at 78°C.

therefore my question is: shoudld I overclock it further? 78°C isn't alot, and I already noticed a nice increase in performance. I am using this overclokc solely for games, so the fan won't be running at 100% 24/7.

How far do you guys think I can go

(I'm a real rookie to this lol, but I hope I can increase this card a bit more)

thanks in advance

Gosh of course it will get hot if the fan is 30 percent,

72c is your GPU ? that's a great temp for your card, these cards can withstand up to 100c ,, Soo your no where near that, so no worries.

If you want to overclock further your going to need to volt mod your card. Or else 700ish core is your max, and 1800 ur shader and 1000 memory,,,,, gl,
