Default Overclocking my XFX HD 5770 & what stress test do i use

Hey guys i just recently bought a XFX HD 5770 card and i want to OC it btw Im a noob with this. The Tools Im using are MSI Afterburner, CCC, & GPU-Z. My question is i dont know what to use to stress test my OC for stability to make sure im not having any problems. What is the ideal idle temp and full load temp i should be looking for. Should I have the the fan on auto or manual. Here is a screen shoot of my GPU-Z


IDLE

FULL LOAD

Stress test in furmark or OCCT. Both will make it get hot as hell.

For temps, it's really hard to say. It mainly depends on what you are comfortable with.

I had mine at 920 mhz, 1.2v. Ran 70C at 100% fan speed, wasn't uncomfortable with it at all. I went back to stock because the noise drove me crazy.

Well, it depends on how much you want to risk. Typically, you should keep it under 80-90C if possible, but I've had mine to like 110C with a volt mod and an epic massive cooler on it. The chip topped out at around 1150 MHz.
