Graphic Card Overclock List and Discussion

Tested with a few games. There is an FPS boost of 7~10fps with the overclock.
Wolfenstein(maxed out) on stock ranged from 40~55 with ocassional dips to 29.
With the oc, it never went below 37/38. Max I saw was 64.

I was surprised by the performance in battlefield 4. (Ultra settings, 2x msaa)
Stock:- Min:- 28, Avg- 41/42 Max:- 62
OC:- Min:- 35, Avg:- 48-54, Max:- 68.

And the card stays ridiculously cool. Admittedly,I am using a custom fan curve in afterburner with 70% fan speed at 65 degrees. But the temperatures don't seem to cross 65 usually. The max I have seen it at is 68.

Will try out other games.

Wat? @_@ How is that possible? The 7850 is vastly inferior to the R9 280x. Even with the overclock, I guess the max it can reach is performance levels of an HD7870 or maybe slightly better.
To be fair, I only saw 68 once. Usually it stays around 46~52.

Hmm that could be the reason. I only run 2x msaa max and antialiasing post at medium and AO at HBAO. Left everything else at ultra.
Even I uninstalled bf4 a few minuted ago :p

Not going any higher with some sort of stability. :( Guess, unless I BIOS mod, that's my ceiling.

Additional Notes if any : Temps are well within limits, TDP is also within limit, still can't go any higher. Anything above this point, there's lots of driver reset. Even while not running any games, only web browser and/or video player.
