Overclocking 6150LE

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'll start off by saying that yes, I know it's a bad card, and yes, I know I probably shouldn't be overclocking and integrated GFX card. But I'm 16, and it's my parent's computer I'm messing with, and they won't let me make any hardware modifications.

OK, now that that's out of the way.
Which driver will allow overclocking via ATItool? I've recently downgraded (more like upgraded) drivers back to 169.25. The older drivers seem to provide better performance in Team Fortress 2.
I think I have tried 169.14 also, and to no avail.

I know it is a 169 driver, because I overclocked (not permanently) last summer on a 169 driver, I just don't know which one.

I'm running Vista 32 bit, with 1 gig of RAM and a crappy processor (stupid Best Buy sells you crappy premades) so I need all the power I can pull from my card. I know I can get it to almost 500 mHZ which is a HUGE improvement over the default 425.

Anyone know?


Edit: Also, in Riva Tuner there is no green PCI card icon when I click the customize tab. Only "low-level settings" which is not it.
When I try using CoolBits, I move the slider up, click apply, and the sliders go right back down to 425

Ok update here.
I uninstalled the driver and ran Driver Cleaner.
Then I installed 101.19, and was able to overclock using CoolBits.

However, neither RivaTuner nor ATItool were able to edit the core speed.


Somewhat off topic, but what is a decent core speed for a older card?
I got mine up to 500 from 425 before I stopped the test. I'm assuming it can go higher.

I'm pretty sure the 6150 isn't a card, but is integrated graphics

Don't push it too far.

Just keep pushing it slowly up while you have the artifact tester in ATiTool open. If your comp freezes or the cube starts to artifact, then go back down to when there was no errors and that will find the maximum it can go.

There was actually someone who overclocked their 6150LE on this site to 579MHz. But don't try jumping to that right away, because all chips are different.

Heres a link to that thread: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/1725...ed-6150le.html


Yes I've overclocked that integrated before.

Even though ATItool won't show the clock speed or memory speed, it will still test for artifacts fine?
'Cause I have to use CoolBits to OC it, I just happen to remember 500 from a working driver/ATItool combo test.
I stopped it before it finished, and it made it up to around 500.
I'm not going to push it anywhere near 579, because I highly doubt there is any cooling on that chip. (Though a dead card would be a nice excuse to have to purchase a new one )


Update:

I just went and tried pushing it further. I moved up 1 step in CoolBits, then scanned for artifacts for ~30 seconds in ATItool. Nothing showed up so I repeated. I got up to ~590 and wondered if something was reading wrong, and the clock really wasn't that high. So I bumped it all the way to 670, and sure enough, the computer froze up. After about 2 minutes, it unfroze itself, and it said it successfully restored the driver.

So I tested it at 650, and it works fine.

Does that seem like a unnaturally high number to you?

I dunno.

That's way higher core than I can get on my 6200, that's for sure.

Scan artifacts for about an hour and see (longer if possible)

Well then. I was just letting it run for 30 seconds.

So just go to ATItool and hit scan for artifacts right?

I've only watched it for ~1 minute, and the cube stops spinning after 10 seconds. Does that matter? It just says "no errors for X amount of time"
