GCN architecture is not know for stellar overclocking prowess, and at this tier, you shouldn't expect much anyway.

You don't overclock an architecture... you overclock a chip. The chips that AMD makes (through GlobalFoundries) don't overclock well because they're already running at close to their maximum potential. Any further would result in significant increases in temperature and power draw.

rated at 84W on msi page, so I'm thinking 6-pin even though the pictures don't show it and it isn't stated explicitly.
