Results of overclocking - too hot? - Page 5

post #41 of 62
Ofcourse you can,get Riva Tuner 2.01 here.

110mhz seems to be a little too much,doesnt it work 16x at 100mhz?

Here is what you do after installing RivaTuner,Follow the steps 1,2,3.
Run the application,click on the arrow next to customize,under driver settings.Then click on the first icon,the graphics card.Then enable overclocking.Change values,Test and apply.

To your original question about temps...Intel lists the Max Tc temp (which is the temperature measured at the center of the IHS) for your processor at about 62° C at a Thermal Design Profile (TDP) of 65 W. This means a power dissipation target based on worst-case applications. Thermal solutions should be designed to dissipate the thermal design power. I would assume that your on-die Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) where the temp readings are coming from would be fairly close to the Tc temp on the IHS. Also...Power is related to two things that you can control. Voltage and Frequency. Both are directly related to that 65 W TDP. Frequency is related linearly and voltage by the square of the value. So...if you are running too hot, small changes in voltage will exponentially affect the power consumed.

@ ehjorten - thanks for that info mate...it seems that i can't o/c above 2800mhz due to limitations of my ram. At this speed i think Intel TAT reports a max of 60-62°C anyway, so therefore i'm just okay with it.

@ kindredice - thanks for that program...it say riva tuner?? is that safe to use with my Point Of View Nvidia 8800GTS?? Also, don't I need to use a program called "Ntune"???

Yeah its safe and probably the best,RivaTuner has been around for many years.You can use it with any Nvidia card.

slight problem mate...CPU-Z is showing the first PCI-E as 1x and the other as 16x.



Also the clock frequencies in the pic were default and i didn't adjust anything...do i need to?

Thats how you overclock your graphics card,increasing gpu and ram frequencies.First one is gpu and 2nd one is rams,its ddr so will double what you put.

You are getting 1x PCI-E when you set it to 100mhz? and you get full 16x when you set it to 110mhz?

kindredice - thats right mate...it was back on 100mhz because you said it would be better to keep it low. But as soon as i enabled the overclocking option in Riva, the GPU was 1x and the RAM was 16x...so i have now gone into the bios and changed it to 110mhz and this has changed both GPU & RAM to 16x

Would you be kind enough to look at the previous screenshot i posted and tell me what setting you recommend i choose to safely o/c without damaging the gfx card?

Also what is the safe temperature range for this gfx card and how do i check what temperature my gfx card is?

thanks again

From what i know increasing PCI-E over 105mhz is not good,i remember using my 6800GT at 115 and nothing happened but ppl here used to say higher PCI-E speeds may cause harddrive failure,BSODs and your windows may crash.Try it tho if you dont experience any problems and if you are stable then its all good.

Your 8800GTS 320 is not a overclocked version,mine is not aswell.So those pre-overclocked 8800GTS's are running around 560-575mhz for the gpu and around 900 mhz for the rams (1800 ddr).So i'd assume those are safe try 560/900 for a while if you happen to have artifacts/texture corrputions in the games lower the ram speed a little,for example to 850mhz (1700 ddr).

What drivers are you using? 160.03s are out for both vista and XP,get them if you want here for XP.I dont like the new driver settings window Nvidia has so i use the old one,here it shows the temps.Its safe until 90s on load tho.I attached the registry file to switch to classic view of driver settings use it if you want.

kindredice, thanks so much for the new drivers link, the reg hack and all that info...very much appreciate it mate....the gfx card is running fine at the moment:-

bios pci-e: managed to bring down to 106mhz, which works fine @ 16x/16x
riva overclocked: 560/900mhz also works fine

although i still need to test it for stability and any corruption. I'm having problems though changing the temperature threshold on nvidia's temperature settings. It shows as 110C being the threshold and i can't change this...why?
