Are these good OC numbers??
 
Here's my OC munbers:

CPU - defaults at 2.8Mhz - Stable at 3.5Ghz w/ my custom cooler - 25% OVERCLOCK
GPU - Defaults are : Core 575Mhz - Stable @706Mhz - 22% OVERCLOCK
Shader 1276Mhz - Stable @1522Mhz - 19% OVERCLOCK
Memory 1000Mhz - Stable @ 1101Mhz - 10% OVERCLOCK

What do you think guys? Considering it's all on air I think they are pretty good.

I'd say that's pretty good. But the question is, do you see an improvement in performance? Is it stable and are temps within reasonable limits?

If all is good, you should be quite happy with a 25% increase in performance...for free.

Yes I do see a performance increase. Windows boots quicker and apps open quicker. Also, Crysis seems to like the OC's as it runs smoother w/ eye candy maxed out.

Personally I'd try dropping the shader and upping the memory a little (I run 700/1400/1200). That's just me though, I don't run my hardware on the limit 24/7, just for benching. But otherwise it all looks very good :). From the little I know about AMD that CPU OC is very good.

Thanks for the advise. I'll give it a shot. I don't OC my vid card 24/7, just when I game occasionally(ie Crysis, FarCry2). My CPU stays OC'd as my temps are as follows: 24C idle, 40C load. I've never seen it go above 40C - mostly stays in the upper 30"s.:D
