Overclocking 5500 FX 256 MB video card by nvidia

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a GeForce nvidia 5500 FX 256 MB video memory card, and I would like to overclock it. I heard I had to use a program called "Coolbits" by either merging a value to the registry, but it would never load on my nvidia settings. I also have the most recent version for the firmware of the card. So is there any way I can overclock this in further settings or the like?

I have a 5500 (it's 128 and pci though, one piece of crap card it is!) and I used ATITool and it worked fine. You can't monitor temps for it though since there aren't any sensors but I don't think frying it would be too big of a loss . For reference, I got mine to 315/240 from 270/200

I dont understand the ratios you have posted. What do they mean? The speed Mhz? THis is my first time trying to overclock a video card.
