Air Cooled Overclocking
Here is our starting point, 480MHz core speed and 700MHz memory speed as shipped from XFX.
After selecting “Detect Optimal Frequencies” we let coolbits work its magic. By the time it was finished we were running 615/824, which is a huge 135MHz/124MHz jump over the stock clocks, nearly 30% on the core.
Rather than just spout off some numbers, let’s see how it translates to real world performance.

While a 30% increase in performance would have been great, we see only a 10%-15% increase in performance. Not a bad performance increase for free! Let’s see how it does on watercooling.
