8600gt OC memory/core numbers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if it matters that the memory is lower then the core when overclocking.

I can currently get 700 core and 420 memory it doesn't seem to like anything over that for memory but the core can go up to 900.

no it shouldn't matter.

but if you just purchased that 8600gt you should exchange it for one with a higher stock memory clock, because my mem clock was somewhere around 700 stock (1400mhz after Double Data Rate)

EDIT: if you don't want to do that, then just clock everything as high as you can while still being stable and enjoy.

Yeah i thought that was weird, people are getting higher clock memory then me but lower core and i'm getting higher core then memory.

i'm using atitool and when i move the memory up to around 500 it freezes the PC, and if i clock it higher then 420 the temp starts going up into 80c.

But i can clock core right up to 900 and get temp 69c.

I'm pretty happy with how its running, cod4 looks nice with max settings.
