I overclocked my GPU slightly, should I put it back?

Hi! Well I just OC'd my GPU slightly. Should I put it back?

In CCC: High Performance GPU Clock = 890
High Performance Memory Clock = 1260
Fan = 55%
Temp while typing this = 30 - 35 - 40, while playing BF3 for a couple of hours = 60 - 70.

Those temps are more than fine.

Only worry about dialing them back if you run into stability issues.

I agree but ussually if you want to know if it is stable run a benchmark if it crashes reboot and lower the clocks a little then if you get a Bench that runs and complete's at the mention clocks then you are A-Ok also make sure the temps don't exceed 85c that is when you will run into big problems good luck

What benchmark? Is there any good benchmarking programs?

3D Mark 11 is good also. Although it is only good for just a few uses without buying it.
