ok so im messing around with the mem and clock speeds to c wat gives me best results. so i run aquamark with stock setting to show me how much of an increase im getting. immidiatly after running aqua, i check the temp of the card, and it says 68. so i oc it to 390/800 and run aqua. i get a better score (obviously) and check the temp, and it says 59.

wtf is up? i have coolbits on and the "fan always on" checked, but it runs cooler than stock speeds

maybe the rpm of your fan changes when its on full load. Doesnt happen to me though? what company is your card from?

I wouldnt be worried about it, standard overclocks usualy dont raise the temp unless its a real extreme oc, when you up the voltage then your gonna get a spike, I dont see why your so worried, I wouldnt worry about it.
