can u overclock low profile cards?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ive had much trouble trying to get a low profile graphics card that will play games but i think this will hopefully. It arrives 2 days time
http://www.misco.co.uk/productinform...affiliate=2004
its basically the 6600 but in low profile (half height i think)
Will i be able to overclock this at all ive read the 6600 can be. + Will i need cooling.
i want to be able to play cod2 @ 1024*768 hopefully as long as my fps is good.
thx

Welcome to the forums
You'll definitely be able to overclcok that card. How far it will get I'm not sure as that will depend on your system and cooling.
You can use ATI Tool:

Just set "Find Max Core" leave for about an hour without any artifacts and then do the same for the memory.
Good luck with it

EDIT: You can also try unlocking from 4 Pixel Pipelines to 8 as well by using Rivatuner. Let me know if you need any help with this as there is an FAQ already written about doing this.

Oh right, sorry mate. It's essentially a 6200 dressed up with a different name. 4p and 3 VP. All isn't lost though as there's a chance of unlocking still. Hope it goes okay
