I could use some help overclocking this card to achieve maximum performance. I'm using the SMOS dashboard to do this. According to Zotac's spec page, the Engine Clock Base is 1556 MHz and Boost is 1771 MHz.

I assume this is references the CPU clock speed, or is it for memory as well?

Does anyone know if the Boost speed is automatically applied in hardware, or is it something the driver must activate?

SMOS just gives offset options, as shown in this screen capture, which is why I'm trying to figure out which default values to start with in my calculations. The capture shows my curren overclock settings.



Also, Zotac rates the card with a 120 watt power consumption. Does anyone know of it's safe to allow the power to go over 120 watts?

Any advice or thoughts is appreciated. Thanks. :)
