geforce fx5200 ultra overclocking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have a Gforce FX5200 Ultra 128MB. and i tried using cool bits to overclock it but when i download and install it, I right click on my desktop and then the settings tab, then the advanced button but then i have not got the option to choose my card like the instructions say. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am new to this software (coolbits). I have an ASUS A7V8XX mobo w/ 1gb pc3200 ram 160 gb W/D HDD. and a AMD 2600+ processor w/300 watt PS. Thanks in advance.

Can you open up the main menu of coolbits ?

Also make sure you have the latest version of the software.

I avoid aginst OCing the 5200Ultra, I had one, and while they have headroom the coolers on them suck, and even with a 5mhz OC mine would over heat. I suggest a newer AGP card.

I,m not sure about getting into coolbits main menu,not really sure how to be honest, but dont see anywhere to do it. It was just a 0.1mb download and it made the changes to the reg. automatically. I have changed the fan and modified the cooling on it, right now it actually don't even get warm so it stays almost cold. Thanks in advance.

I have a VF900 and I feel it's a terrible waste on my FX5200.

Stock cooling should do fine. Firstly, have you installed your graphics drivers correctly?
Verify that you have by rightclicking your desktop, and if there is a nVidia menu, it is installed correctly.
Now, if you run with the 9x.xx drivers, you would have lesser problems. Just go into one of the menus and select "Classic Control Panel"

Agreed I used to have a 5200 and it was a horrible overclocker. Get you self a better agp card you can get a decent one for pretty cheap these days on newegg.
