Guidelines for OCing GPU

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, Today Im gonna try out to OC my ATI Radeon X1650 GPU using ATI Tool. Any guides or advices you wanna give to me? Ill try doing it manually. First, Im gonna higher the core and memory tray by 5mhz, click set clock, then scan for artifacts for 10 mins. If any good then Im gonna do the following steps again until I reach its max like the visible yellow dots in the cube will be seen. If I see the visible yellow dots in cube then Im gonna lower core and memory tray by 5mhz, set clock then scan for artifacts for 20 mins. BTW im using ATI Tool 0.26. Hmm are my steps good or you can suggest me with better ideas..

Looks good to me man, go for it!

One note though is that I've read of guys saying once they find they are artifiacting at all they drop the speed by 10-15mhz as opposed to the five. Not sure if that's entirely necessary, maybe somebody else can confirm and dismiss that info.
