Depends on your card and cooling. I run @ 900 core w/ 1.1375V IIRC. I didn't touch the memory clocks.

I get tearing no matter what so I always play w/ vsync on. And I use dual displays constantly no issues from what I've found.

easiest way to screw a card is go insane on the juice(mods) or play too hard with memory. take it very slowly. and better have warranty :)

So far ive started with a conservative bump to 800mhz on the core and havent touched voltage or memory. Load temps max around 82c, thats with a shitty 77-80f ambient temp. With a normal 68-70f room temp it runs much cooler, in the mid 70s celcius.
