    Hey

    The cards default speeds are 249mhz Core and 199mhz Memory

    Using ATI Tool the Core is now running at 380mhz and Memory at 210mhz. The Core still hasnt reached its max but i was gettin worried incase i blow the thing up lol..

    Im getting no errors on the card and no artifacts what so ever and my 3d benchmark score has gone quite a bit. Ive purchased a Case Cooling fan and a Arctic Cooling fan which sould be arriving tommorow.

    I want to know if its ok to leave the Core speed at 380 mhz or tone it down a bit.

    Thanks.

    I'm constantly pushing the limit on my GFX card and it still hasn't "blown up" so I would safely assume no, provided that you aren't experiencing crashes, artifacts, or other irregularities.

    I'm using a Zalman ZM80D + OP1.

    My powercolor 256 mb maxes out at about 425 mhz, then i set the clocks back 5 mhz to be safe.

    Also i get it 2 days before you ha.
