VIDEOCARD OVERCLOCKING



Although this cooler could handle this card with ease, there was some instability during benchmarking which had some benchmarks freezing a couple times during different benchmarking programs. Because of this, overclocking testing was called off. If it isn't completely stable stock, I can't guarantee the card you buy will be stable under an overclock.
