    RDR, is that a person or an app? Also, should I overclock my core clock or memory clock. Should the two be equal (generaly) or is there a ratio of like 1:2?

    From what I know about the Crucial Radeon's - 330.8 is the effective memory speed - it uses 6ns DDR Ram - so the actual memory clock speed should be around 166.67MHz

    My R8500 is an ATi Retail - so it came clocked at 275/275 (550 effective for the memory) - I was able to get around 310/310 without any major mods.

    However - most LE Radeon's won't OC to Retail level's since they are supplied with less voltage - there's an easy way around that through the use of an HB pencil - see this article

    with a little more juice I would think you would be able to get at least 300MHz maybe more from your GPU
    As for your Ram - who knows. Crucial is well known for high quality memory, but there's only so much you can do with 6ns chips.

    Just keep increasing your clocks by a few MHz at a time...run a few benchmarks and look for artifacts. If you don't see any bump it up a bit more and try again...that's all anybody can do.

    Personally, I use Powerstrip for OC'ing - but any of the Radeon tweakers available at Rage3D will do
