    First and foremost, always monitor system info..e.g.,temps, voltages
    using utilities such as CPU-Z and GPU-Z when attempting to overclock
    in order to avoid 'cooking' your system

    Depending on the model AMD/ATI graphics card, you can use either
    AMD Overdrive -->
    (Note: If AMD-ATI Catalyst/Vision Control Center is installed, click AM
    Overdrive tab)

    AMD GPU Clock Tool-->

    Remember that it's a little risky.

    And I'd say, don't use the ATI Catalyst control panel's
    auto-overclocking. It fractured a 4670 for me. It still runs ok, but
    crashes if I engage the Overdrive. The auto-overclock went too far, I'd
    say. It was reaching collosal heights without much testing. I was
    getting ecstatic!

    Going bit-by-bit is the way, running a torture test for each small step.
    Much less likelihood of damage that way.
