Clock speeds won't stay

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just "installed" Coolbits and when I set my own clockspeeds they don't actually change. According to NVIDIA Monitor they go up a little bit but they don't get anywhere near what I have set. Can somebody tell me why?

I keep hearing people on other sites say their 7900 GTO's are running at like 650/1350 - ish. What makes their cards so special? Mine can't even handle 650/900?

I agree, I see peoples 8800GTS 320's with a 660 core and a 2000 mem, mine just locks up at those speeds

See what atitool can get you and keep in mind not all hardware OC the same (and many of the guys here are damn keen and avid OC'ers and they start doing volt mods etc. to gain the max amount)

If you also want to go that route there are a number of tutorials you can have a look at these FAQ etc.

Good luck
