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

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)

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.
