    Anyone had any success in overclocking the memory speed at all? If I raise it, or lower it even by even a little bit, my system will crash. Anyone know why this is?

    What tools you using to OC? My Powercolor (Rev 1 PCB) was good for 770, I usually left it at stock though as I didn't notice much of a difference, and if you go too far timings will relax and can hinder performance more than help.

    If using ATI Tray Tools/ATI Tool, make sure to check/activate a setting that should say:

    Use Driver Level Overclocking

    Usually overclocking even the slightest without allowing this method will result in a crash, VPU reset, black screen, freeze, etc. But with driver level overclocking selected, you should be able to raise a tad. Depending on revision, custom bios, etc, you may be able to attain a good OC for that card.

    The best mine could do overall was 621/770. I ran it for a while, but didn't notice much of a difference from stock. Keep in mind the clocks for both GPU and Memory increase in intervals of ~6-8Mhz and manually type/set them in, do not Auto OC.

    Hope that helps!

    Customising memory timings for the card in its BIOS is about the biggest performance increase you can expect, the OC is a negligable boost once clocks hit 650\1.6GHz

    Seems ATi tray tools does the job. ATITool has a weird problem then. I overclock my memory on it and my monitor goes off, saying frequency out of range and my refresh rate was well over 200hz :wtf:

    ATI Tray Tools I was able to OC my card. I got it at about 635 core and 1600 memory. I was #6 to similar systems in 3dmark03 benchmarks with around a 15300 score. Not too shabby
