    So how did you overvolt ??? Cause even when I use the Gaming Fan Mode, I still get artifacts sometimes, even on 700/1000

    I think you have to use the modded bios... As I have the 6550 i didn't need to do so. There was a discussion a while back about it... I can't remember how. sry :(

    I also wish to overvolt my 5650 GPU. In AMD GPU clock tool I can choose between 0,9 and 1 V, but I assume this is not maximum?

    The temperature has been inching up in the recent months from the levels it was at when i first bought it. So thought maybe I should clean out the vents.

    What's the best way to clean out the vents in this beast?

    Linux is working without problem with both cards. You have to switch the graphic manual. At least there has been a discussion to enable this option also for the closed source AMD driver, but I don't know if they have finished the job.

    Open the plastic case and clean them.
