Re: Would like advice on GPU OCing and the best, safest software to use.
That isn't a very high overclock, so the temperatures won't go that much higher.. go in increments of 5-10Mhz at a time, but you might want to get a better cooler for your card if you're worried about the heat. If you're too worried about it, you shouldn't be overclocking in the first place. You'll barely see a performance difference how you have your settings currently.
