i've never liked any software that came with graphics cards (or any hardware really) to overclock them. I'd download coolbits and use the clock frequency settings in the display panel.

for drivers to use, just download the latest driver from nVidia, uninstall your MSI drivers, reboot, and install the nVidia ones (best to leave it on your desktop so you don't have to search through your computer in low resolutions, )

i already tried that, the nvidia driver is giving me an error message. it says i miss something, i don't remember what. i don't know what i'm doing wrong


as for the overclocking, coolbits doesn't work, the tab do not appear in the setting screen.

but powerstrip and rivatuner works fine. which one is better?


thank you

p.s. yeah i know, another noob, sorry

um, between powerstrip and rivatuner, i don't think either one is necessarily better than the other. just go with whatever one is easiest for you to use.

try to find what error you're getting and post it so someone can try to help you get by it.

ok i found what is the error message. it may not be the exact word, the message is in french, so i have to translate

basically it says the installation software can't find the driver compatible with my material

what the hell does that mean, my material is fine, and it's the right driver i downloaded from nividia.com

ok, i feel kind of silly. i did not download the right driver. coolbits don't look like working, so i'll go with rivatuner, and now i'm trying ati tools. i heard it's good

sorry to have wasted your time, but thanks a lot for the help

ok, i'm back with some test result

driver version is 81.95 from nvidia.com

i overclocked at 505/1375 with rivatuner v2.0. and i can overclock the core a little bit more

i ran 3dmark05 and got 6400pts

when i had D.O.T, i had 6500+pts

what do you think of these results??

well, try to overclock your card manually a bit more until you get artifacting, "snow" like specs, or you run your card too hot. if that performance level still doesn't match what you can get using DOT then hell, use DOT.
