I decided to overclock my video card a couple days ago, and just went to 1050/1450 (from 920/1250). It seems to be running fine, and I ran it through the Heaven benchmark a couple times without issues, as recommended by a friend), although my graphics card driver crashed last night when I was playing Kerbal Space Program.

Is Heaven benchmark the way to go, or is there a better way of testing GPU stability? Also, what would happen if the overclock was unstable?

I use heavily modded Crysis, Crysis 2, and vanilla Crysis 3 for testing GPU overclocks.

What would happen? Driver would crash, just like you experienced.

Instability is an enigmatic affair. It's hard to test for it and rule it out, but from my experience the best program to use is OCCT, with error checking enabled.

Cool, I'll give it a shot.
