Nice!

For some reason, my core clock is maxed to 600mHz and memory is at 800..

How did some of these guys get to 750/1000??

Did you do as I said in the linked thread? The batch file if you want OverDrive in CCC and the statement in the config file to unlock clocks for AfterBurner.
You have to reboot.

My limits show 780/1040. I am happy at 700/950. Don't like to push it too much.

No cable, stuck with crappy broadcast TV. Did you run the batch before reboot and get the message?

Yes got the message, just did the restart and it's there!

What's the safest setup to go with? (For gaming)

Really subjective. I never pushed to crash point. Guess if you like to live dangerous you can experiment with higher values. Seems the 700/950 works for me, just be sure to boost fan speed too.

GPU Caps Viewer is a good program which also has tests that can tell you what changes did, if anything. It tests both GL and CL.

What should I boost fan speed to? I went with 700/950 as well. Right now, I have it set to auto

Well, if one of the newer DX11 games I would boost it to at least 75% while playing. There is also GPU-Z which will monitor you temps in the background while you play and keep a log if you want.

So boost it to 75% and keep it manual? Or..boost to 75% then go back to auto?
