So I am finally getting my PNY 7800GT next week. Why PNY? because it was cheapest, and its reference design (means no problems with Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 Rev 3s). No Games, no Extras...no need for 'em. Cost me 309€s incl. Taxes and shipping.

So I was wondering what were you 7800GT owners able to OC your cards to?

cheers

I just picked up an eVGA 7800GT CO.....I am dumping my Sapphire x850pro...I went from a 3dmark05 score of 5600 to 5800 with the x850pro to 7400 to 7600 with the 7800GT....so I would say there is a difference between the card. This leads me to wondering if I OC my 7800GT what kind of scores can I get. What are you using to Overclock your 7800GT...I did use ATITool for my 850pro...and I know NVidia has coolbits...so I may use that.....but if you have some other application to OC NVIDIA cards let me know....I will also post my restults....

well I managed 450/1100MHz with my PNY 7800GT (the card has absolut reference design, down to color of PCB and cooler). Going to buy myself an NV Silencer 5 Rev 3 and see if I can't get more out of it. Coolbits found my max for the card at 458/1110MHz, but safe is safe...The card you have has the big copper heatsink, and comes factory OCed right? I get 7500 points with 450/1100MHz.

It does have the copper heatsink and I believe it comes from the factory at 470/1100MHz. I will try coolbits and see how far I can take it :)

Hi there:

I tried coolbits and it let me safely OC to 490/1200MHz. Not too bad....I ran ATITool to scan for artifacts for and hour and a half and it didn't find any. I ran 3dmark05 and went for 7510 to 7700...so it's not too bad for my first OC run with this card....I am not too sure how much OC over clock I have with this card.....I may try to go to 500 on the core...also the card averages about 72 degrees under load (ATITool artifact scan)....I should get a hold of aquamark and try it.

Well that is some serious speed you can get out of your card! nice! there is a way to increase voltage to the card by editing the bios, I am going to try that once i get the NV Silencer 5r3. just waiting for my favorite store to get them.

I have the evga 7800gt with a zalman cooler on it and used atitool to overclock it. Found max core to be 489 and max memory to be 630 (1260 effective). I run the card at 475 core, 610 memory to be safe and have had no problems. I get 7833 on 3dmark05 and 3828 on 3dmark06.
