Ok.. so i have the Gigabyte Radeon R9 270x 2gb oc windforce x3 edition.. Theoretical its already factory overclocked... but i can still go a bit more with it.. yesterday night.. I played arma 3.. with msi afterbuner on.. it sayd that i got mostly of the time 0% Gpu usage.. and the cpu cores was around 50-60%.. i got a crap pc.. Amd Athlon II x3 450 3.2ghz and 3GB ram DDR2.. before overclocking it. i had like 10-13 fps in cities on King of The hill.. after i overclocked the card with the core at 1145 from 1100 and the memory at 5860 from 5600 i got a nice and playable increase in fps even if my gpu is bottlenecked.. from an average of 11 fps.. in cities.. i jumped to a stable 20-21 fps in cities and 38-45 in base.. and my gpu usage got a big better.. i mean it started to use abit of gpu.. it was around 50-70% and sometimes was goin to 0% but not like first time.. and the gpu temperature was 37 degrees .. the beauty wasnt going over 37.. so is that good? could i go a bit higher? or? any suggestions? Thanks in advance :)
