GeForce 8800 GS superclocked 384 mb

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I am running on a mobo that does not support O/C'ing. What is a good way I can pump a little more juice out of my card? Are there good nvidia control panel settings that I should know about? Also maybe third party software that can do the trick. I was just reading about different drivers and I didn't know you could download drivers that were not directly from the manufacturing company and have graphics card support them. What should I know? I am just looking for general knowledge on getting a little more from my 8800.

Thank you.
