Is it safe to just bump up my 7950 to 7970 speeds?

oh, pffff that? yeah. Do it up. just use MSI afterburner and have a decent fan curve set up. have it at 100% speed for 70c just to be safe while you do it.

ok that makes me feel better lol.


So Ive had it at 925/1375 for a bit now.

For some reason my temps have gotten lower since i posted this topic. Im now idling at like 44 and playing BF4 for about an hour and a half just now it never got above 65 at like 50 percent fan speed. Should i push it even more? If so how much?

meh push it until it artifacts then turn it down a little

i tried using msi afterburner. Its way too convuluted lol. I think il stick with the default software

the custom fan curve alone makes it worth it. As well as more comprehensive monitoring.

you're not going to stop at that. that's a pretty low overclock depending on your individual GPU
