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?

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
