A newb with a simple question. - Page 3

post #21 of 31
i had an mx440 i pushed to 350/400, and i put it on 480/500 and it didnt crash, but it wouldnt even display internet explorer. considering its around 270/333 stock i got a good OC. before i replaced it was 315/350

i would say try 280/300, or 295/295.

i just tried ati tool... i hate that program. It made me restart. I told it to do an artifact test or w.e, it went up to 306++ core speed then the happy windows blue screen came up blathering about a physical dump.. so yea i uninstalled ati tool. I'll stick with RivaTuner..

the one thing i dont like about rivatuner is that you cant change the settings on the low power 3D. I uped the Performace 3D settings, but what should i do with the 2d settings?

SWEET MONKEY JESUS! I just ran 3DMark01 on normal settings (cept 800x600 resolution) and got a score of 2198! My initial, befor eoverclocking, was around 1349!

Settings For 2D: 275, 375
Performace 3D: 290, 375

i uped the textures system memory to 100mbs, dont know how much of a difference that made

Anyway, my latest overclocking results..

Current clocks are 302/402MHz on core and memory respectively.

Average frame rates in CS:S stress test were 39.91FPS! That's a +9FPS increase from stock clocks. Not too shabby!

My latest test crashed though. Gonna run another one and see what happens.
Heres the link for the XtremeG Warcat drivers

Ok re: driver, get latest, that's my suggestion, unless your into old games, try the 66.## series, and they'll work again.

However, re: the 5200, WHAT BRAND IS IT LITERALLY, (So I can physically see what your working with, or a digital cam picture of it with GOOD LIGHTING is awesome to!).

The coreclock right now is (the default) 250 MHz, the memory's at 333MHz.

I'm thinkin: 275MHz++ and 366MHz++
Depending on the card...you can flash to a 5500
Otherwise due to temps...350/433 is a max for me with no major mods

A long time ago i tried overclocking my FX5200. Not good results.. The little POS fan on it stopped working when i was overclocking and my capacitors leaked a brown liquid.. It wouldnt even run WMP anymore lol.
