Recently overclocked my 8800gts

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I overclocked my card recently using Riva tuner and want to ask you guys what you recommend for monitoring the mhz, temp, etc. Im currently using Nvidia system monitor and its ok but are there any better ones?.

The card is an Xfx 8800gts 320mb currently overclocked to
972mhz memory clock.
648mhz core clock
1674 mhz shader clock.


Also I run the fan speed at 100% when overclocking temp is about 52c during light use (desktop,internet, etc) and has not gone past 71c while running modern warfare 2 with all high settings at 1080p. Im not sure if thats the best game to be testing the stability with but that leads to my next question, what benchmarking programs would you recommend for stanbility testing the card? Im lookin at getting a better card a little later like maybe a gtx 560ti but for now this card seems to do pretty good for most of the games i have played so far.

MSI Afterburner. It's built on rivatuner technology, but it's much simpler to use, and it's actually kept updated, unlike RT which seems to be a mostly abandoned project at this point (the developer Unwinder is on the Afterburner/Precision team now). And it's onscreen display functionality rocks.
