    I am using at I tool and i am doing the scan for artifacts. I notice it would be at 132fps then suddenly drop to 93fps then rise again to 132fps. It was at stock speed. I am using a Asus N6600. Before I overclock I want to know if this is normal or if it is a problem with anything. Whether it be head or dieing. (Card is quite old and well used) I am overclocking to extend it's usefulness.

    It just stutters, the card should easily be able to handle that. My ATI 256MB X1050 agp could and it is agp.


    Edit:
    I am also unable to view the current temperature, ntune doesn't read anything.

    Wait, did I get that right; You're using ATI tool with a GeForce 6600? That works?

    Yeah, ATI tool has full support for Nvidia cards since updated 2006.

    Also what I meant by extending usefulness as in keeping up with tasks. lol

    yes, ATI tool works with Nvidia cards, etleast as far as the artifact scan goes.

    as for overclocking with the ATI tool... some will work some wont.


    also yes it is very normal for it to drop frame rate.


    when i had my 6600, i found overclocking did not help very much but that could have been due to the games i played or even the cpu i use'd to use.
