6800 XT oc

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey,

i´m new to oc overall, but i started today with an old gpu of mine,
an 6800XT 512 MB

from 440 Mhz core to 480, this is a small step i think, but how far can i go with this one..
i use ntune for it and just increased the fan speed a little and its 1 degree cooler then before.

as you can hear im a real noobie at oc
but it fun to do actually

If you really want full potential of that 6800XT, try unlocking more pipelines with Rivatuner. Default is 8 pipelines, and you can unlock 2 more pairs to get 12 or 16. If you are lucky it might work with all 16 open, you can enable and disable them in Rivatuner.

Only agp can do that though.

My old NX6800GS would OC' 510/1230. Ive seen others get higher.

Use Rivatuner to OC and increase the fan speed also. 510/1230 wont run unless you mess with fan speeds.

500/1215 should be easy enough to get rock solid.

i just tested it with crysis and i was astonished by the speed increase.
after 5 min a gming the image started to have some `dust` in it.

i quit the game becouse thught that i might get to hot.
and i saw that it was 75 degrees ..!
i also saw that i forgot to increase the fan speed

but its cool again and i going to try to get a bit more out of it
