Hi and welcome to the Gigabyte forum.

Your card is overclocked already. That is what the SOC stands for Super Over Clock I doubt that you would be able to get any significant extra out of it.

Dominators 1600 x6 12GB
6970 2GB

Yeah, considering high clocks out of the box with the SOC series you're most likely looking at a very slight gain. If you're really hardcore then with voltage increase you could probably get a more significant result. Take note that that would substantially increase power consumption and heat levels which would cause an increase in fan noise. There's also shorter life-time of the card to think about.

Anyway, here's a link to what you should expect: http://www.guru3d.com/article/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-460-soc-review/18

thanks, im not a hardcore games just want to OC my card a little more,i didnt try to tweak voltake. Think only 10-15 mhz up would be ok!
I was trying to understood how you OC but now i thing it's ok running at 830mhz, and shader clock 1660 mhz and memory 1020mhz. Any advise for not much OC will be accepted :p

Just run some benchmarks with stock clocks and then overclock little by little and compare results each time. As long as there are no artifacts / crashes and your score / fps increase compared to lower clocks it'll be fine.

Better monitor card temperatures as some benchmarks ( like Furmark ) result in higher power draw and temperatures than games.
