8500 GT help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm new to this whole overclocking scene... and I was looking for some advice.

My 8500 GT's (512MB) default GPU clock is 460 MHz, and the Memory is 400 MHz. It runs at about 70 degrees Celsius on desktop, and it can hit 90 degrees when I'm ingame.

Would it be safe to OC this card to 500 MHz for the GPU and 475 for the Memory? Is this too much/too less?

Thanks,

- noob looking for advice

i have the bfg 8500gt 256mb version, i never looked at temps on it but it seems to run rather cool, i havent bothered to even try overclocking the card, just doesnt seem like it would be worth it
its like overclocking a celeron ><

Alright, I'll save overclocking for when/if I get a new GPU.
