AMD Radeon R7 240 200 Series Overclock

Hello
I do own a AMD R7 240 200 Series Video Card and i do want to overclock it.
I have installed MSI Afterburner and Kombustor to test the video card at the maximum potential of overclocking.
Maximum Overclocl settings:
Around 16 fps in Kombustor with the settings : 20% Power Limit, 1000Mhz Core Clock, 1170Mhz Memory Clock and 100% Fan Speed.
I have a sharpened sense of hearing and i can hear the GPU making some noises which i think they are not pleasant, to describe the sound it makes, it sounds exactly like you are pushing the button of a E-Cig.( Vape Cigarette, anyway, hope you know what i meant )
and i`m certainly afraid to let it at the current settings, because i`m thinking it might melt, or blow or catch fire because the temperature will surely rise.
Please, if you can give me any configuration that might work and still get a decent amount of fps out of it, let me know.
Also, i`m afraid to let Kombuster run for a long amount of time because the temperature is rising pretty fast.
Can anyone help me with this?
Thank you in advice .

  1. That is a lower end card, the sound is probably the fan. You can either replace the cooler with a better one or just replace the card which would be a much better ideal. A used R7-250X if your power supply can run it will be a big upgrade.

    Thank you for your response, sir.
    My GPU has a silent-cooling, it has no fan.
    I saw the R7-250X multiple times, saw it in action quite a few times, i`ll take your response in consideration.
    I have only one question to ask you. Will a DDR3 motherboard go well with a DDR5 GPU ? Will it work?

    A silent GPU is not meant to be overclocked. The memory on the motherboard does not have anything to do with what is on the card, they are totally independent.
