Opinions on OC/Cooling benefits Radeon 9550

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Right now I have my 9550 maxed out @ core 415 Mem 215. This is with the stock back HS and no fan. If I buy ramsinks and a new cooler how much higher do you guys think it will go?

I already have the core above that though... 415. So you don't think the core will go any higher?

I got my core stable at 445 my memory seems to have serious speed issues 209 is the fastest I could get it to go. hmmmmm haven't tried since I added that 80mm fan to cool it maybe that'll get it up
Good enough

Its impossible to say. Usually improving temps means a better oc but every cards different and half of ocing is just luck of the draw.

Well that sucks... Any truth to turning off fast write enhances overclockability?

Oddly enough I have the MSI 9550 and I got the lil **** up to 490 Core and 230 Memory. You may think im lying, but i tell you its up there. I can run HL2 on full graphics(everything is maxed) and i never drop below 30 including 10+ mob firefights.
