  1. hey guys,
    just woundering if GPU Overclocking is the safer way of overclocking?
    coz it sounds that way to me.
    i'm running a hp pavilion 534a, updated ram to 2gb
    is there any chance of me damaging my comp using GPU Overclocking?

    cheers

    what are you looking to get out of it, overclocking your GPU will only help out your video card

    How is the cooling in your case? How about on the card itself. Cards get alot hotter and stressed while overclocked. That stress and heat can slowly kill your card. You also have to weigh how much performance you are gonna gain from this. 1-4FPS, is it worth it?

    I stick with ATITool because it is the best I have found (For ati cards of course)

    ATI Tool works for Nvidia cards too as of recently. I use it to overclock my 7950GT.

    I stand corrected, thanks for pointing that out MetalX.
