Overclocking XFX 6800Ultra

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering about my XFX GeForce 6800Ultra (AGP 8x)
I'm overclocking it, and now I'm @ 444MHz Core/1230MHz Memory.
I can't up the memory any more, it fails in the test thing.. But when I up the Core, I get artifacts...
Is there some way I can OC more, and get rid of the artifacting? Or am I at the max on my card?
My GFX temps are 48 Idle and 69 Load.

You could try aftermarket cooling, this might help you get a bit further.
Zalman vf700-cu is always a good choice.

I'm thinking about it... Think that would do the job?
Atleast drop the temps a bit?

Btw, is there anything else I can do to my 6800Ultra???
Any volt-mod, or any bios change or something???
Do anyone know something to improve the performence on this card??

I have my BFG 6800U water cooled and it does 474/1.25 for 24/7 gaming. You need that if you want to take your chip any farther. And btw getting a better cpu would help a lot more than volt modding your card.

Yeah, I know. But I'm running on socket 478, and I dont want to waste money on a new processor, when I still can mod things... And I'm hoping to buy a new comp in a years time
Now I got Intel, and AGP 8x, but I want AMD and PCI-e... lol
So, I'm trying to squize out as much performance as I can from my comp

You could volt-mod by changing BIOS settings in nibitor, but make sure you have some good cooling, at least put some AS5 on with the stock fan and heatsink, but after-market cooling is recommended. I have 2 Artic Cooling NV Silencers for my 2 6800GT's and they work wonders. The voltage is currently at 1.4, so try 1.5, but don't go over that.

Can anyone explain this to me? I am fairly new to all this and better sockets and pci-e are supposed to be so much better than older stuff so why is it that my amd 939 with pci-e 6800u overclocked 429/1200 is just doing 5420 on '05? What is up with that?

You can also download different drivers, maybe older versions of forceware drivers or modded drivers on the internet. Sometime it helps.
