Tips on overclocking the 8800GTS?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I haven't overclocked a video card in awhile and last time I did it was the 7900GT. I just loaded cool bits, went into the advanced control panel, and clicked "optimal frequencies".

I have nvidia ntune but I feel shaky using software that changes bios settings dynamically. Does anyone use ntune to overclock their video card?

Any tips would be great!

Download Rivatuner and use that to overclock. Ntune is known for causing problems, also a good idea is to use ATI Tools artifact tester to test for artifacts after an overclock.

Just got both of them, upped my cores to 700 Mhz. Got a 17330 3dmark 06 score.
