Default Overclocked GPU

I overclocked my 6800XT using ATItools from 350MHz to 422MHz (core) and 300MHz to 405MHz (memory). The only thing is that I only got an extra 5 fps in crysis. Did I do something wrong? Should I expect more?

Also my card runs at about 68c under load. Is that to hot? And finally besides 3dmark06 what other program can put my card under load?

The USA spent 12 million dollars and 10 years designing a pen that worked in space.
The Russians brought a pencil.

If this post has helped you please add to my rep.

It is an older card running a demanding game, so it sounds fine to me. Those temps are fine too, because GPU's run hotter that CPU's in most cases.

Just make sure it is stable by making sure there no artifacts.
