How do I know if the over-clocking is working?

    Hi

    I've managed to up my Connect3D 9500 Pro from 277.00/270.00 to 305.10/305.10 so far. I've saved this setting and when I restart ATITool it does state those speeds.

    This will probably seem a dumb question to most but I'm a sort of newbie. Does this mean that when I play my games now, the card will be running at those speeds? Do I need to do anything else or how can I double-check?

    Also, is there anything else I can do to improve the card? I've stuck a new purpose built, self-powered cooling fan on it. I am thinking of flashing the BIOS but will this give me anymore advantages?

    Thanks for your attention and any advice you can give me.

    If you have it set at those clocks, yes (unless you have a stock 3d profile :p)

    well, you could also bench the old clocks vs the new clocks ;)

    a new bios won't increase the performance of a 9500 PRO AFAIK
