Hello,

Just wondering - if any1 can tell\explain.

Overclocking to R7000 from 1GHz to 1.2GHz or 1.4GHz.

What would be the proper way of testing the stability?

What is the most important thing to look at (watch) once router is overclocked? Temps or?

From my reading, most of the people say 1.2GHz is safe\stable, what about 1.4GHz?

I am doing a lot of Samba transfers, and i noticed better transfer rate while overclocked to 1.2GHz, am i gonna see even better rates overclocking to 1.4GHz?

Current:
1.2GHz

CPU Temperature
CPU 56.9 °C / WL0 44.79 °C / WL1 51.25 °C

Thanks in advance

I am curious too. Just bought the R7000 and have overclocked to 1200. I'm curious if the FSB is 200 which requires jumps of 200 or if I could do 1300 without issue other than perhaps heat.
