Overclocking Geforce FX5200

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I've been non-active @ overclocking some time now and thought i'd start off with knocking everything out of this card it can give

My specs are:

AMD Athlon 2200+ 345mhz bus /w 13.5X multiplier
1:1 ddr mem with 2-4-4-6 timings
overall kinda normal

right my geforce:

Added some mem cooling blocks
Added a 40mm fan
Tweaked the bios so it would overclock higher.

It was at core(250) mem(330)
It is at core(320) mem(430)

I'm asking your opinion:

Should i go anyfurther, or is it not safe without raising voltage?

That's a nice overclock.

I couldn't get mine stable at 300 core / 400 mem.

Have you checked it with ATITool's artifact scanning?

Nope, just ran it through 3dmark 05 and ran it for an hour for stability.
This is the max i get with stability in mind.

But im kinda thinking (hoping) it could be due low voltage for that speed.

BTW: is there someway to up the voltage on this thing?

I don't think there is. You might try searching google for a volt mod, but it'd more than likely have to be a hardware mod which could potentially ruin your card.

if your card has 64bit memory , then there is no point in overclocking the core , so i suggest to stick to overclocking the memory and leave the core@stock ,no need for the extra heat.
