    ty antatres thats good for a prog to use, but i wanted to know a safe speed to overclock at so i dont have to worry about cooling too much. i already have 3 fans inside. besides i have omega drivers and they have an option to oc already.

    You can't just determine a speed which is safe for all cards. Some cards will overclock well, others won't, it's all completely random. Just keep bumping it up like 5mhz each and running a test like 3DMark, or something like that. If you start seeing artifacts or corrupted graphics, then you've either gone too high, or you need better cooling on the card itself.
