we need some more info on your motherboard. Could you download CPU-Z and open the motherboard tab and take a screen shot and post it for us?

I've tried your method on my 8500GT and I used a extreme oc value of 4. Stock was 460/920/400 and I could go up to 575/1150/500 which isn't bad. But it is still worse than my previous best of 735/1470/495 ( only had to drop the mem by 5 to gain 180mhz on the core again...)

So what do you suggest I do? Should I keep my max? Any ideas anyone?

temps goes to about 62C on air.

good lord! 460 to 735!? Does it FEEL like it's been overclocked that much? I mean, is it possible that's a false reading or is that a confirmed clock speed?

memory is really holding you back, so i'd keep it down to keep that core speed nice and stellar, 8500GT's oc very well hey :rockout:

That is confirmed clock speed yes. 3dmark05 scores went from 4565 to 7037. And it makes a huge difference in gaming, probably as much as 8-10 fps on low graphics settings.

Yes it seems to really hold me back. But it does also help my fps as well, although not nearly as much as the core speed.

I only got artifacts with the core at 780...So I'm wondering, would you say that I could take the core up more if I dropped the memory more? I've never tested it, and never thought about it really:rolleyes:

sometimes that can be the case, however ive never personally had lowering mem speed affect gpu oc or vica versa...

always worth a try tho :cool:

my 8800gt

i kinda was wondering if there is any sorta techneque for raising the core and lowering the mem. because my oc is 666/1000/1680 form 600/900/1512 and i definetly feel that i could get a lot more out of the core or even out of the whole thing. plus i want to get my core off the devils number :laugh: Any ideas.

good still on it , but like i say my way give you overclock without any risk and in same time there is some brands give high range in overclock in gpu or memory depend on the brand hardware made , you can use voltage mode to get more but that's only on you risk

Voltages mods are a no-go for me on a gpu. I'll take it to where it can go on its standard volts, but thats it for me:)

Hey guys heres a technical question!! When you have a video card that get 350mhz at the memory using GPU-Z but you get a DDR2 video card does it work like ddr2-ram slots and you have to double the speed?? I mean i have a DDR2-800mhz but in test programs it tell that i have a 400mhz ram. A guy explained me that it will write 400mhz because i have a ddr2 but if i had a ddr3 then it would mean that my 400mhz got to be tripled to know the real speed.
So tell me the truth in short :) thx

In short, yes. As far as I understand, my GPU-Z shows 497mhz thus it equals 994mhz. Rivatuner also shows "half" the speed on its hardware monitor.

hope that helps

so why is this formular any better than just stright overclocking eg the best i can get out of my card is 900 for the gps's and 999 for the mem, am i going to get a better preformance increase by 825/30 = 27.5 so 825+27.5 = 852
an 901/30 = 30 so 901+30 = 931 ?

or are you saying ill be able to get higer than what i can acheave alredy by going
825/10 = 82 so 825+82=907
an 901/10 = 90 so 901+90= 991?

or should i keep the 999mem and put the gpu up to 907?

or do you think i should go with a /9

yes , try decrease the constant number for high overclock until you have an constant number give crashes so you back for stable one before it
im always say to people who do overclock to keep the eye on the temp

my 9600GT OC from 650/1650/1800 to
775/1850/2000...
and adds up to 10-15 FPS on Crysis Warhead..

that's cool , i hope you enjoy with my way

I've always increased the GPU 1st and depending one what others got i started about 50 less there. For example with his 4890 i started at 900 then increased by 5 which got me at a max of 950 due to heat. Not tried the ram yet i'm sure it could be bumped up some but need a 3rd party cooler for that and it's summer time to so thats not helping in my case at all as we do not use a air conditioner.

For now i leave mine at 920\975 as it's going get loads hotter still and because the heat does not need to get GPU\reg max temps it don't mean your cards not over heating then there the memory which might be getting a tad to hot too.


I cannot say with NV cards as i'm sure it some what different do to having unlocked shaders and with buying ATI cards for the last 3 years my last NV card was a 7900GT.
