DIMM3: OCZ XTC Platinum Rev.2 OCZ2P800R21G1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-15 @ 400 MHz) (4-5-5-13 @ 333 MHz) (3-4-4-10 @ 270 MHz)

GET RID of NTUNE, trust me you'll thank me later, use bios for OC of cpu and rivatuner for GPU (if doing so). GPU temp is a little hi but ok. Close your case, fans work better, if not check your air flows. Set you GPU fans to 80% all time should fix any temp probs.

He'll have to use ntune if he's running vista (are you running vista?). I've tried a thousand approaches with rivatuner and atitool and scoured these and other forums but cannot get them to run on vista due to crazya$$ driver crap w/ vista.

Rivatuner works just fine on Vista, ATItool however has yet to come out with a working program for Vista. Mabye you should try updating your rivatuner, and/or clearing out any old video drivers that could be causing conflicts.

Thanks for the quick response..

Yeh, I have Rivertuner which works perfecto but ATI doesnt :/

is there an alternative? I have the newest drivers installed also!

Do you think my rig has much potential to be overclocked ?

Yea, RivaTuner works flawlessly for me as well.

Good to know I'll give it another pass.

Actually I remember having problems with it and ntune at the same time before I reverted my vista install, I'll try it again (this reminded me).

Sorry to take the thread over, you can have it back now.

On that note, the 8800 gts 320 is known to have some heat... my 8600 runs at 60 C on stock.

You need to download everest, it'll give you a good temp reading on your card.

Download the latest Rivatuner 2.09 and here is a guide you can use to setup a profile for your temps and fan setting. That way when your vc starts to heatup the fan will adjust to your settings. And if you like you could put your specs here so that we can help you better.
