Sparkle Geforce 8600GT 1042mb DDR2

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
This is a new build, I am running a 1.8 intel dual core 2 overclocked to 2.8, mobo abit IP35-E, 2 gig ram.

The word Sparkle worries me here.

I dont have a clue how to over cluck a graphics card, if this card can be OC or even if I will benefit from doing so.

All info would of a great benifit to me.

I can supply what ever info is needed...

Don't bother OCing it, you won't get any noticeable performance out of that DDR2. If you haven't got the card yet then don't, otherwise I'm sorry but that 8600GT is what I like to refer to as a lemon. Its one of those cards put out there with big numbers to trick the consumer into thinking its good, when its really a POS.

its easy u can over clock the video card use riva turner or cool bit

coolbit

or riva tuner

http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=163

when u up the mhz of the core up the ram the same amout only go up 2 or 3 notchs. at a time. watch ur temps. get ati tools and scan for artifacts after each notch scan for 10 mins. avoid damage the video card.

ati tool

I am more than happy with the card I have bought, price v's spec was the issue. It runs most of my games at full spec very happily, but im power mad, grrrrrr. There is no need for any more discussion on that matter. Thank you for the advice, but i wasnt asking what to buy!

If its worth OCing, then I will, if its easy I will, if i dont gain a lot, I still will just to see for my self. I want to learn about over clocking graphics cards, my only option is to start with mine, positive kama preffered please, ohmmmmmmmmmmm

No it's not worth OC'ing.

For the matter, it's not even being worth bought at all. Well if your playing games that is.

Well to over cluck you'll want to get a liquid cooling loop going on that bad boy and use chicken broth to liquid cool it, if that doesn't work throw a few cold chicken breast fillets on it, I personally recommend Foster Farms brand myself that oughta get you at least 60 more FPS out of that bad boy.

I got good results in this forum for advice on my CPU, looks like i will have to find another forum with more positivity when it comes to advice on how to oveclock.

60 including delivery for a 1gig card, i dont want anything difefent to what i have, i dont need advice on what to buy. But this is getting old now, so im moving on laters thanx for the help those who did.
