How do I get my 6600 to OC without Artifacting

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a xfx 6600 with ram Overclocked to 630 mhz, but my core only goes to about 304-305mhz then it starts to artifact. Is there any way stop that from happening or is my card just not that good?

Weird, i get those same temps at stock, but I'm running my core at 400. Could just be a bad chip.

Do you have slits on your case by your GPU?

That's pretty warm for stock, especialy with 10 fans...

I have vents next to it and 3 fans in close proximity, 1 intake 2 exaust. Nothing else gets hot in the case, my cpu usually 45c.

Is that idle or under load? That's not very cool at all.

well i would advise getting a better cooler, like an arctic cooler or a zalman zf700? and then try to oc some more, temps are a little high, no where near damage point but high for a stable OC...
