Overclocking help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am totaly new to overclocking and wondering:

When clocking the GPU, I use EXPERTool or RivaTuner.
Then I ajust the clock with around 70 more Mzh (9800GX2).
I also ajust the fan to 90%.

Is there anything else to think about (without the temp)? Like setting more watt for your GPU or something like that?

Or is it just to tune up the Mhz and the fans?


I also wonder what program you use to clock your RAM and what program you use for setting the CAS Latency - and what you have to put it - Link a guide or some would be great.


System:
E8500 3,16Ghz - Nonclocked
9800GX2 - 670Mhz/1674Mhz/1026Mhz(2052Mhz)
OCZ Gold 800Mhz - Nonclocked


Best Regards,

you could also adjust the memory speed! and by the way turn your fan at 100% you will need it! and 70 more at a time seem to be too much but if its ok for you than you better run 3dmark06 to check for the stablebility for you card.
if you want to increase watt for you gpu you will have to do it in the bios.
list your system so we could help you better!

You can increase voltages for GPU's in the BIOS??? Show me! That makes me a noob!
