    Hey guys/girls, I was just wondering how I would go about overclocking my 9600 256, maybe not all the way (so i dont shorten the life too much) but all the max would be fine. When I bought it, it came with a CD "Saphire RedLine", I only have 1 80mm fan in front and a 120mm an in rear for cooling...my system specs are listed below:

    P4 3.06 (wouldn't hurt to oc this too. lol)
    1gb 2700 (one stick 512 2700 and one 512 3200..:-/)
    80gb harddrive (around 50gb left)
    Asus P4S800 Mobo

    It didn't increase it, it said the max was 408/312 but when I made the new profile it re-set to 397/249 (less than the default)...whats a matter with it/how do I fix it? :-/

    After you find the max overclock, create a new profile. Set the clock speeds to what it found as the max, and then click save.

    Forgot about the saving part. Thanks

    One final question: It only increased it to about 408/311, is there anyway I can get it to increase it more (because this isn't a big change)?

    I reccomend the first one. It should increase your oc, maybe by not much by it will keep your card cooler and therefore last longer.

    Follow this guide for how to apply the thermal paste. Ignore the instructions on applying it to the heatsink though.

    Also, to clean off the core use qtips and rubbing alchohol. Then use tissues to dry it.
