    I wrote this a while back during work one day for someone. Thought it could help another.:toast:


    First off use the latest driver, even if it is the hacked ones. With N they only like to write in new stuff with the top cards(most of the time)but they do work on the lower end cards. It just has to be turned on. You can try different drivers, some work better in some games than other's.

    Fist you need to download ATi Tool

    This is to scan for artifacts if you take your OC to far. Most of the time if you play it slow you will see it without a lockup and your forced to shut the machine down and reboot.

    Vdo Tool, is nice and I do have it installed for easy looking(temps, current clocks), but I think PALiT could pop the bubble of not being scared of people frying their cards and open it up more. But like I said I use it to read whats going on, on the fly all the time.

    Now your card could over clock with ATi Tool, but I have heard rumors of a new Ver of ATi Tool on it's way. So that could be a reason why the updates have slowed down.

    RivaTuner v2.11
    Now this is what you use to overclock with your video card. with ATi Tool for the scan tool.

    Now you will want to set the fan settings before OCing your card.

    Your temps
    that opens

    OK so now we are ready to OC the video card.

    first do use linked. Move this up by 10(Core and Shader) every time start scan for Artifacts.

    Now it's not going to move, but it is doing something let it run for a min or so.

    repeat this until/up 10/ Ati tool start scan/ end scan/up 10 and so on


    Now when you hit yellow back it off 20-30 Mhz, and start moving the memory,
    But move the memory half the speed only 5 at a time or less.

    Then back it down just like the core/shader.

    Now this is when you can unlink the core/shader and move one up and the other one down to see what goes higher. Sometimes a slower shader can bring a higher core or the other way around.

    www.futuremark.com/ or here at TechPowerUp! in the download section.

    and or

    This may be a good time to turn on riva monitor for temps.

    Run the test if it locks on the first run you know that your to high. ATi Tool is close but not 100%. If you run a loop run it again and again to see if it crashes.

    If it does not then it's pretty stable. That's when you save your profile(or before running the test to remember where you were before)

    I always make a folder, and after every run I hit print screen. Then past it inside of paint, and save the screenshot. To remember what my score with what the clocks were. Now before I take that screen shot. and save it to look at later. I run GPU-Z(tells you what clocks are running on video card), and with CPU-Z(tells cpu/memory speeds) to tell me my settings.

    Now for the HIGH overclocks


    All you need to know^^^^^
