I bought a new geforce 7300 and have some experience overclocking. I just also bought a new vga cooler and placed it on the card as well. The CPU corre temp is 38C. This is already at my max clock. Doesnt this mean something is wrong with the card or with my settings? Also when playing a game i notice the game will freeze for 15 seconds, then i notice all of my OC settings are reset to the default settings (core threshold slowdown?) . I'm using coolbits and nvidia to OC my card. Also tried RivaTuner, which prevents the resetting of the clock speed, but still will not let me move up in speed. If my GPU is 38C then i should have PLENTY of room to really OC this card... what is holding me back?? Everytime i run the test it says the test failed, or the system hangs. I'm currently at 475mhz core 850mhz memory. Even more unusual when i run rivatuner it claims the max memory speed is around 450 or 500 mhz??? When nvida's OC tool says i'm at 800+. Please guys I could really use some advice as I'm really stumped on this, and after buying the new VGA cooler and seeing super low temps yet no more OC potential (it didnt help change my clock speed) I could really use some advice from those more experienced than I.
