Re: Gallery: Cases
Just small steps. Leave the MSI afterburner open when running a 3dmark test. It will show you the max temperature your card has hit. You want to keep it in the 60`s max low 70`s. Any prolonged use in the 80`s can hurt the gpu. Once you see what your thermal ceiling is just start increasing by like 10 mhz the cpu. Keep doing this until you hit your thermal limit or you start seeing artifacts on the screen. Once you have your CPU limit back it off about 10mhz and then start the same process with your ram. Usually it starts artifacting before the temperatures get too hot so keep a close eye. You can also use furmark to make sure you have no artifacting as well. Hope this helps.
