Any ideas why I cannot OC this card? I'm get a steady 316MHs with the current settings but feel I am underutilizing this card. If I adjust the core speed to 774 or 776 the card stops mining. What am I doing wrong?
600MHZ ram speed generally isn't stable. You'll have to try about 800+ or sub-350. There are certain straps where memory will jump to a different timing; the higher the mhz the higher (looser) the timing, but it only changes at a certain threshhold. 600mhz is probably close to a threshhold (timings are too tight) and not stable at that frequency.
Also I found if you are going to change clocks on the fly, make sure there isn't a significant load (mining) on the video card, or it can cause bad problems.
