How far will can it go? EVGA GeForce 8600GTS SSC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I have seen the light. I have had bad luck with Nvidia before blowing up some systems I own but so far I realy like the Evga that I got. But I have to ask can it go faster? Has any one tried to over clock this card that I got a GeForce 8600GTS SSC I know its already over clocked from factory but with some work can I do more with it mabe some after market heat sinks and a better cooler? Or did Evga push this one right to its edge and there is not much more to get out of it? Thanks

you should be able to OC it at least a little bit. i have an msi 8600gt OC and i OC'd it another 15% on core and memory, and another 35% on shader and thats with nothing changed physically. no vmod, no vga cooler, nothing
