So.... I've started to OC my GPU..... what temps should i stay under...X1800XT, after market cooler Zaldman VF900, so right now i'm at stock vCore and only have about 74C.<br><br>
Secondly, do i just up the voltage a bit then run "Find Max Core" and watch the temps?<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

whoa...most people say don't go over 80°<br><br>
I'd check to make sure your VF900 is seated good cause I don't think it should be any where near those temps at stock v-core.<br><br>
I believe the card will auto shut down at around 100°

I would say keep it under 70C to be safe, but don't freak out until like 80 or 85.

Vid cards are much more resistant to temps than your cpu.<br>
you don't need to worry at all until you hit 90°C or higher. even then you're getting close but not too high<br><br>
To OC people tend to find max memory and core and back off by ~5MHz. If it's stable - push it until it isn't. If it isn't back off until it is
