Whats a safe OC for my Mobile 8800GTS?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
well i live in texas and even though we keep the house somewhat cool my machine heats up a lot under load, and i mean real hot. Ntune's nvidia monitor says my GPU runs at around 65C while running AoC for a few hours but i find that hard to believe, the air coming from the fan will almost burn my hand if i leave it to long. Right now it has my 8800M GTS running at 500/799. What would a safe overclock be to run AoC a bit more smoothly/squeeze out some points on 3Dmark06?

if your using riva tuner, you can pump your fan speed a bit and drop some extra degrees, and if your OC fails with riva it will revert you back to your original setting that worked, other then just pump it up about 5-10 points slowly and then test your FPS in the ATI tool, and see if you get an increase, or a more stable FPS, as far as smoothness in AoC goes, but yeah i recently OCed my processor from 2.4 to 3.0, and my coreclock on my 8600GT from 540-600, and it's definetely more powerful and i got my fan ramped up 45% more and i can keep it ~50C, so best of luck to ya :]
