default setting for fx 5200 not working?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've overclocked my friends fx 5200, core from 270 to 291 mhz and mem from 332 to 380 mhz using coolbitz optimal frequency tab and tested it using the nfsmw game. After sometime, we restored it back to its default setting (he got worried about his gpu excessive heat generation) using coolbitz restore default tab. The sliders return back to 270/332 but i didn't observed any performance lost in comparison to the OCed setting nor a decrease in heat generation (this is more of a qualitative conclusion, we don't have any means of measuring the temperature accurately). is this just normal, any advice you folks can give?

sorry for my english.... thanks

The actual baseline for the FX 5200 is 250/300 -- Put a fan from a P2 on the heatsink if it doesn't have one. If you don't have a P2 to steal the fan from just go to your local computer store. You should be able to get one for less than $5 if it's used.
