Safe to OC FANLESS 8600GTS?
I have this ASUS 8600GTS silent.
would it be safe to overclock it, given that it has no fan?
Would this be dangerous?

depending on your airflow in the case it should be possible to OC it but id recommend having a fan placed pushing air directly through the fins on the HS"Btw.... it makes it look like a sex toy. I don't want to be waving a dildo at my TV." - FudgeNuggets

If you are to overclock it, watch the temperatures carefully as they should increase quite quickly. Stay below 80c full load and make sure there is a negative pressure inside the case (aka more fans blowing out)Main: i5-2500k @ 4.2GHz:.:P8Z77-V LE Plus Mobo:.:8GB DDR3 RAM:.:AMD 7870 2GB GPU:.:Corsair H50:.:Corsair 520HX PSU

What are the temps now? if they are already high (like around 75c for load) then its not worth the risk. If you want to try it I would suggest getting one of those pci slot fans and putting it in the slot below the card.Main: MOBO: Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 CPU: i7 6700k w/ Scythe Ninja 4 and 2x Noctua NF-F12s, RAM: 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz , GFX: Galaxy GTX670 GC (replacement coming soon), PSU: Seasonic X-850, CASE: Corsair 500R, HDD: 256gb Samsung SM951, WD 4TB Black
