    So after my 4850 died the other day, I picked up a PNY Verto 9600 GSO OverClocked edition for a back up card. And since I have been using ATI for a while now, am not used to the slightly different setup to NVidia cards, shader clock overclocking and linking with core clock. Using the EVGA Precision tool I have been able to take the card from its stock clocks of 575/850/1438(core/mem/shader) to 615/950/1538 with the shaders and core linked. Anything over that and Vantage crashes with a driver reset. Now is this my max clock for the card or can I get it higher (barring and penil/hard mod, BIOS I will try) by unlinking the shaders and core. Thanks!

    It might be crashing because it could be clocked to much, and when it comes under load the card cant handle it. I would lower it down a little and see if it still happens.

    Unlink the core and shaders and try raising each by themselves. In modern games, increasing the shader is more important than increasing the core.

    A while ago i owned a Galaxy 9600GSO card with the default clocks of 600/800/1500 and i was able to OC-it without any crashes or any sort of artifacts at 680/900/1750 (core/shader unlinked)... The card had a custom cooler like this one

    Most clocks I see with those are close to 700 for the core, around 1738 for the shader, and around 1000 for the mem. Ask BUCK NASTY, he has a bunch of 9600gso and 8800gs overclocked in his folding rigs.

    Hmmm...your oc seems awfully low.

    It's possible that it's a heat issue rather than a voltage issue. I heard the PNY cooler isn't all that great. What temps are you getting?

    My eVGA 9600GSO runs at 741 core/1836 shader/1053 memory. I haven't volt modded it yet either.

    I heard that the 9600GSOs now aren't G92s, but G92B cards, which apparently aren't as good. That could be the problem.

    Check your temps in eVGA Precision Tool and post them.
