Sorry if someone else has already post this.

It's rellyable the values found by the autodetect?
Can I damage the core or mem with those values?
Can I set diferents values for Ram speed in 2D & 3D mode?

I got a Gainward 1100
5900 SE
400/700

The autodetet choose 450/750

It depends really. The numbers you got seem to be all right. If auto detect came up with some really whacked out figure, then I'd be concerned. All you can really do is test. My favorite program to test overclocking is 3DMark 2001. If your system hardlocks, then the core is clocked too high, if you get visual artifacts (you'll know when you see them) the RAM is too high.

On my 5700 Ultra, auto detect gave me an overclock of 533 MHz core, 1.02 GHz memory. I've not touched the RAM but so far my card has been able to run at 550 core without any problems.

Again, it's all about trial and error. Use what auto detect gave you as a baseline and adjust from there. You might be able to go higher.

As far as I know, most 5900XT (or SE) cards will reach at least 450mhz core (from 400) and between 750 and 880 mhz for the memory (from 700), so you may try to increase them a little more
