New to OC, Need help you guys please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am what you would call a noob when it comes to OC. I dont know too much about computers in general but have recently become fascinated with everything about them. I have been reading these forums non stop and really enjoy everything that I have read. With that being said I decided to try to OC my graphic card. My specs on my comp are a AMD 64 4000, 2 GB Corsair Ram, Nvidia 7800 GT, 80 GB hard drive, and a 500w PSU.

I read as much as I could about how to OC my GPU, and even watched the video in the gallery. Everything seemed like it was working fine, I DL Coolbits and the ATItool. On the Nvidia settings I selected optimal settings and thats where I have run into some questions. It says my Core Clock Frequency is 440 MHZ and my Memory Clock Frequency is 2.08 GHz.

From all the screenshots of other ppl's specs my memory clock frequency was way off. Did I do something wrong? Or is that number normal? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

yes fill out your system specs for us please, it will help. Also what driver version are you using for your 7800GT. I always overclock my gpu with rivatuner. I suggest going to www.guru3d.com and downloading the 92.91 drivers from dhzeropoint. Also pick up Driver cleaner pro and install it. Then uninstall your current drivers you have now. reboot into safe mode, run DC pro for nvidia and clean the old files out. then reboot normaly and install the new drivers.
Then try your coolbits to overclock.

looks like a normal number, as long as you dont see any artifacts or graphical errors, trust me youll know them when you see it. if you do just lower the frequencies. and those frequencies are they ov or stock?

p.s. welcome to the forum!
