How to overclock Club 3D R9 270x

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a program to O.C my card, the program it comes with "royalFLUSH"
is a bit weird to use. This is what it looks like, and what it says when I open the program http://i61.tinypic.com/303bbih.jpg... When I move the slider to begin an O.C it does this http://i58.tinypic.com/33bd8cx.jpg... does it mean Im O.Cing by 40? or is the program just weird? When I try to use AMD OverDrive I get a different screen then what I have seen from researching this...http://i59.tinypic.com/t4xvdj.jpg is what I get...can anyone help with either, overclocking in AMD OverDrive, or suggest another easier program.

Thanks!

  1. I suggest you use the MSI Afterburner program , It's the best at Overclocking.
    Hope you do well.
    Best of Luck.
    P.S. Overclock safely.
  2. Thank you! I was not sure if I would be able to use MSI's program, to O.C a Club 3D card. I'm going up 10MHz at a time and running stress tests. :)

    Good ! Keep going !
    Find the sweet spot and hang to it , It's good to get some performance for free.
    You can use MSI's program to Overclock cards by any third party.
    Best of Luck.
  4. Im still kind of a newb at it, I've been out of the P.C game for a few years, back then i had an ATI x800xl and thought it was amazing. Ive got my core upto 1150 and after 5 min stress test, its hitting 67c..ive only got a 600W Bronze PSU how far can I go (I know thats kind of a hard question to answer lol)

    Yea that is kind of hard question because It actually varies from card to card , as far as PSU is concerned , I think you get pretty far with it , You are doing great , but make sure you don't hit the temps too high , or damage your card.
    Don't mind , but Club 3D card's are not great overclockers , so keep going until you think It's doing fine.

    I O.C'd it just to 1100, and i actually got a worse score in 3dMark11...

    That actually means that the Overclock is not stable , downclock it a bit , maybe 1050MHz? Your kicking the shit out of your card , Please downclock and find a sweet spot , somewhere betwee 1000MHZ and 1100 MHz , If you still get scores bad , I recommend leave it on stock before you damage the hardware.
    Remember Inno 3D and Club 3D , or Power Color cards are not good overclockers.
    Best of Luck.
  8. Thank you for your answer, and guidelines. I guess I shouldn't have cheaped out and went with a more "name brand" card :)

    My Pleasure :) Yea , You should not have , Next time go with EVGA , XFX , GIGABYTE , ASUS , Or MSi.
    But for the time being , It's a good card , Just keep at clock speeds.
