Hey guys me again, continually tweaking my new HTPC

I am trying to get my ATI Radeon 4350HD better performance plus also retaining stability and temperature stability also, i have attached a screenshot of it running

Can you guys tell me if this config is stable and good for the long run?

Unfortunately my computer doesn't have a "Zoom and Enhance" like CSI do, need a slightly bigger pic.
Use FurMark and GPU-Z to test an overclock. Furmark "xtreme burning" mode will ensure your OC is 100% stable - you want to check for artifacting (flashing triangles). GPU-Z shows temperature like the ATI control centre does, but it also shows temperature of memory chips which is important if you've touched their clock.

I think that looks ok, judging by the pic, it's:

650mhz core? That's fine, a lot of companies have raised the 4350 with the stock cooler to 650mhz, if you do a search on google, gigabyte, HIS and XFX all have. You could bump it upto 700mhz, but you'd probably have to run the fan a lot louder than most people find acceptable in an HTPC(50-80%)
And the memory could do with another 50-100mhz clock i think? as it's at the standard 400(x2) setting in the pic? As eXDee said run some benchmarks like the ones above and maybe also loop 3d Mark Vantage for a bit, see if you get any shouldn't at those clock rates though :)

Temps look fine :) 55 degrees is all good,
