Hi,

I would like to safely overclock my GT 520 GPU,so I would please you to tell me which overclocking values are safe for this card?

BTW my GPU is a fanless version,but I have added a large (120 mm) case cooling fan to it.

Download MSI afterburner, max out the power level slider (if it has one) and increase the core clock until it crashes in 3DMark then back it off a bit from there and retest.

Not even worth overclocking to be honest it is a 9 year old GPU chip driving it.

It doesn't work that way. Each card, even the same make and model will respond differently. Make small incremental changes in core and VRAM frequencies and test for stability. Don't make changes to both at the same time but find the limits of each one independently. Always monitor for temps while you are stress testing. I would not allow temps to exceed about 85-88c.
