XFX 9800GX2 Overclock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am new to overclocking and got a computer with Asus Striker Extreme, E8500 and a XFX 9800GX2.

I launched RivaTuner and clocked my graphic card to:
650Mhz/1625Mhz/1048Mhz(2096Mhz Memory Speed).

I set the GPU fan to 80%.

I launched then EXPERtool and the temp. was around 70-80 when ingame and 60-65 when turned on and on desktop/internet.

So got some questions..

When is it danger for the Graphic Card (temperatur?)?
Do you exhaust your Graphic CArd by having the fan at 100%?
Can I clock it more?


Thanks,
Best Regards
Miss Coffee

Though they can take higher, dont push it above 80 if you want to let it run at those speeds. YOu can turn your fan up higher, but it depends on how much noise you are okay with.


Also, remember to test stability using ATItools.

I got my fan at constant 96% and it doesn't seem to bother it. Doing that mine idles at 48C and maxes out at no more then 70C.

I currently got mine clocked to 756Mhz/1782Mhz/1107Mhz (2214Mhz memory speed). Thats the max overclock I could get out of mine.
