I'll keep it short
I have a stock Oc'd 8800gt of MSi (660Mhz, 950Mhz memory and 1650Mhz shader) which ran up to 96Â°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 78Â°C.
therefore my question is: shoudld I overclock it further? 78Â°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
