Need advice overclocking R7 265

I am a csgo fan and play it a lot. i also do play gta 5 and battlefield (1,3,4). But recently csgo started stuttering and my gpu was at full load so i tried clearing cahe, cleaning pc and every stuff i did. My temps were good but the game had fps drop so i overclocked at max levels. and had fine temps and no crashes, my drops fixed. maybe the card is dying. i did it to max level after reading an article on internet.

r7 265 is not an popular card like 750ti so its hard to find any information about it.

I want to know if its fine. my gpu reaches max 65c on hours of game.



Is it safe to do this overclock? or i need to lower it.

Processor:⇒ Intel Core i5-2500
RAM:⇒ Kingston FuryX 8gb DDR3 1866 Mhz
Cpu fan = DEEPCOOL FROSTWIN V2.0
Graphics card:⇒Sapphire Radeon R7 265 2GB GDDR5
Thermal paste = Some cheap ones
PSU = antec vp500pc

Thanks in advance.

  1. Hi,

    65 degree leaves room to overclock more, you can get in the mid 80's before being concerned by temperatures.
