8600GTS Overclocking

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I decided to overclock my XFX 8600GTS, and much to my surprise I am getting well over a 100 MHz core overclock. I haven't even tried to overclock the memory yet, but if the core overclock is any indication I will be very pleased!

I am using ATITool 0.24 to do the overclocking, stability testing, and temperature monitoring. I am at 71 degrees C after 10 minutes of ATITool artifact scanning with a core of 773.36 MHz.

What are the usual overclocks for this card? Does it normally overclock this exceptionally well?

seems pretty good...what 3DMark06 scores are you getting?
post #3 of 15
I have the MSI nx8600GTS OC edition as a spare card.. I was able to push it to 783/1138 max but only stable for a couple of 3dmark06 runs with around a 6400 score.

I was able to run 740 core/ 1070 ram for 24hr 3dmark runs with max settings no problems. 24/7 stable.

this card came with the upgraded cooling and the fan is running at stock percentages.


P.S. I'm working with Doughboy to hopefully upgrade the cooling on this card and do some volt mods to it. I'll let you know how far we'll be able to push it

People get about 1Ghz on the core... with enough voltage and the right cooling

Temps should try to be below 70c if you want to keep it for a long time.

Where is this from? Just curious where you saw this since I couldn't find it.
