my 1st OC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hey wazup everyone, well im new. was reading around a bit, and decided to try to OC my video cards, i got 2 Sli Nvidia 7300 GT OC's. well i downloaded ATItool, and so far its...

Stock Core: 2D - 375.0, Low 3D - 375.0, 3D Perf - 375.0
Stock Mem: 2D - 333.0, Low 3D - 333.0, 3D Perf - 333.0

OC Core: 2D - 547.84, Low 3D - 548.84, 3D Perf - 549.84
OC Mem: 2D - 387.52, Low 3D - 387.52, 3D Perf - 387.52

so far its runnin fine, and about the same temp as b4. and if i let the mem raise to round 400 it starts to freeze and **** up so i restart, and same if i let core go round 575

is this good, for the stock crappy fan thats cooling it? and does this program do both video cards? or only the 1st one? let me know anything you might think i might find useful since im new. thanks

try playing a game, see if you get any artifacts or if the game freezes. it might overheat and crash if its to high.

Yes Use Ati tool

search for artifacts

However a game is a better stress tool.

Try running a game on settings too high for them so they are stressed

kk i loaded up CSS, and did the stress test it comes with and everything ran fine, actually it ran beautiful. so next gonna try probably FEAR, since it uses more graphics. but the jump i did, is it any good? or very low?

it look likes a nice OC but did you say,


OC Core: 2D - 547.84, Low 3D - 548.84, 3D Perf - 549.84

and then: and same if i let core go round 575 ?

but ok, did you make sure to look for artifects, it may run smooth but you could kill your cad is there are to many artifects.

aa nice stress tool that i like is rthdribl (google for it im to lasy lol)

what i meant by if i let the core go to around 575, i start to get artifacts and starts to freeze. and to make sure i know what im looking for, artifacts are when yellow dots, and **** like that starts to appear right? if so yea i did check for them, and that seting i mentioned didnt give me any, and i also downloaded 3dmark05 and ran that to test it.
