Default clocking 4870 x2

so today i started tinkering a little in CCC and clocking my card up a bit (GPU:777, MEM: 920) and i was wondering if i could push it further and maintain stable temps? im idling at about 66 right now.

My issue is that the computer is in the basement with the door off with these readings, and when done with will be top floor with door closed.

I normally don't post much on forums and read them alot. But you have perked my interests with your posts.

Anyhow, the only way you are going to find out if your OC is going to be stable is by doing it in small increments and then running a stress test on it.

As stress test is about 12-24 hours of constant load. Not 1 hour. There are hundreds, if not thousands of sites on the internet that have help on OC'ing your video card. I would suggest a search engine as your starting point

Also maybe keep your fan speed fairly high to start and then when you believe you're stable bring it down a bit at time to see what temps you get.
