so i am supposed to increase core in intervals of 10mhz until artifact, then underclock until the arts go away. then increase the mem by 10mhz until art, and underclock?

i gather this from "then just do the memory the same way" in the first post.

i may be wrong, but i coulda swore i saw something somewhere about clocking your memory in 1/2 intervals because the memory doesn't increase as much as core. so in this example, core would be clocked in 10mhz intervals, and the memory in 5mhz intervals. am i wrong here? or was my reading this information somewhere just a dream

well, you just oc 10 mhz at a time until you get artifacts, then back off 1 mhz at a time. this way, you'll find your max oc possible. make sure to play a couple games w/ the oc, i was able to see my desktop while i oced it, and when i went to play NFSU2, i had tons of artifacts.

in a nutshell: oc 10 mhz at a time, both core and mem, and when you get artifacts, back off 1 mhz at a time.,

hope this helps.

5mhz or 10 mhz is just a minor detail. 5mhz would be fine for the memory. You could do them both 10mhz at a time 10 times, then switch over to 5mhz if you wanted. Memory still overclocks pretty well, so I say get to your overclock limit faster by using 10mhz. It will save time.

that's what i said. just do it 10 mhz till you get artifacts, then back down 1 mhz at a time. or you could do it 5 at a time, then work your way up/down.

First of all hi guyz!

Yesterday I tried OCing my Albatron FX5700LEQ (250core/400mem) for the first time using Coolbits.

When I used the auto detect, the results where: 286core/471mem

When I tried manualy, I managed to get the core up to an astonishing 485!

Leaving the core at that, the highest I could get my memory to go was 470.

No matter how low I set the core, the memory would not go higher than 475.

From what I 've seen from others on the net they usually manage to OC the memory more than the core, not the other way around. Any insight on why this is happening?

Thanx

sounds like you're limited by cooling. do you have any aftermarket cooling for the card?

Yeah but it's not your classic aftermarket cooling...basically the original fan was too noisy, so I installed a 120mm Zalman fan on the side of the 3D card (this fan is basically part of a kit for the CPU but I modified it to cool my3D card , check the attached pic to get the idea). I was planning on installing an Arctic Cooler Silencer but could not find the proper model in stores so I got fed up and whipped up my own solution :shades2:

*edit:few typos...
