How far can I push my 9600GT?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey !

Just got an MSI 512 meg n9600gt 675/1650/900

cpu= e7200 2.53ghz 3mg cache
ram = standard kingston 2 gb
stock cooler

XP SP2 - using latest nvidia drivers 175.16.

I've already OC'd to 800.2000.1000 with minimal changes in temperature, I was just playing fearon max/crysis on high with a gpu of 53 celsius.

Interestingly it says "factory overclocked to 700/1900" yet it wasn't. but once I overclocked it to those stats and beyond there were no problems.

I used ati-tool to find max mem, it jumped up to 1262, screen flickered, artifacts everywhere and my PC froze ! so I won't be using that program again. =/

I'm wanting to overclock to the max using my stock cooler, any suggestions?

Just keep going!
DON'T use atitool to change your clocks, use rivatuner.
However, you should keep atitool running in the artifact scan as you make changes, that way you pick up on errors more quickly.

Change one clock at a time, in small increments. First raise your core to the highest itll go without artifacting, then raise your shaders the same way, then memory. If you find that one can't go as far as the others, try bumping one of the clocks back to see if it allows another to gain a significant lead (example: if your core tops out at 825, then your shaders top at 2100, try bumping core back to 810 and see if shaders go further)

No one can tell you what your individual card will get, so you just need to keep an eye on the temps and see what you can push it to.

Good luck and welcome to OCN
