Voltage question about 8800's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Do I need to increase voltage to anything to be able to overclock my 8800gts 640mb more than what I currently have it at? On atitool I was able to get it to 660/1960 and it is stable. Also is this how you overclock your card to keep it oced or am I suppose to flash it/BIOS or something?

use ATITOOL, set your core speed higher, and scan for artifacts (15min no artifacts = stable). do the same for memory speed.

If 660/1960 is your current stable maximum... you need to increase voltage and/or reduce temperatures for further increase. Changing the shader delta may help as well.

You can set an overclock via software or video card BIOS flash.
Once again...
