Here's a short GPU overclocking guide:

- Download MSI Afterburner and Unigine Valley Benchmark.

- Increase the core clock by a bit at a time (maybe 25MHz at a time) and same goes for memory.

- Then stress test your GPU (run Unigine Valley Benchmark) for 10-15 minutes.

- If the application doesn't crash, then your overclock is stable but if Unigine Valley Benchmark crashes, then your overclock isn't stable. 

- If your overclock is stable, keep increasing the core/memory clock.

- If your app crashes, you have two options: either add more voltage or decrease the core/memory clock.

 

- You can also modify your fan curve in MSI Afterburner (Settings > Fan > Enable user defined software automatic fan control) to your preference. You can make it as silent or loud as you want.

- Keep your temps in check, try to stay under ~85°C when running the benchmark.

- Check for GPU artifacting as this problem occurs when your memory clock is unstable or too high.

Ok thank you very much

 

I have a Gigabyte RX 570 and haven't had much luck overclocking this card. I've read that it 'should' be perfectly stable at 1400 mhz, but I'm getting crashes, not to mention the card is running at around 80 degrees c at those speeds. I've settled at overclocking at 1300 mhz (stock is 1250 mhz, I think). My case has 2 inlet fans and 1 exhaust so it should have sufficient cooling.
