Ho lee sh!t, I overclocked this thing out of its brains:
http://imgur.com/ZjXj3nH


1200mhz on core and memory at 1.2v
Default is 780 on core and 900 on memory at 1.15v
This is over 50% (!!!) on the core and over 20% on the memory.
No artifacts in heaven benchmark. For such a small card, pretty impressive, but it is LOUD. almost at 50% fan speed. Temps are fine.

r7 250 is a lot better to go with, even if your cpu may bottleneck it. If your cpu is unlocked, try overclocking it.

It is worth it, you may get a little cpu bottleneck if you upgrade to this one. I have it as an external gpu on my laptop, but my cpu bottlenecks it (I can't play games at high settings)
You can also oc it with msi afterburner to the max speeds.
+20% power limit, extended official oc limits and put them to the max.

Max oc settings will be:
39% core oc
30% memory oc


Tempratures (I don't have a case for the gpu, room temp -22*C):
not loaded: 27-30*C (fan: 25%)
Loaded: 43-47*C (fan: 30-35%)
I have 20% oc on core & mem and +20% power limit which makes it use max 42 watt instead of 35, I use custom fan speed

0->20*C = 0-0%
20->30*C = 25-25%
30->35*C = 25->30%
35->55*C = 30->45%
55->80*C = 45->80%
80->90*C = 80->100%
The fan doesn't run if I put it under -20%, it also makes a 'not so nice sound' under 25%, I can hear it because my gpu is on my desk.

This + msi afterburner + extended clock speeds, put at max speed, gpu runs well, on load 45*C with fan running at 35%. The fan is useless since it doesn't cool down much, when I run it at 60% it has the same temps, so I keep it low, just to blow the hot air away. It runs extremely cool, when not gaming it runs at 33*C
