9800 Pro Will not overclock!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I bought this used card and stock AQ3 scores was 41,248. I ran ATI Tool for approx. 3 hrs (mem and core) each. My OC was 398/338. ***? The mem overclocked lower than stock! I also have this mod ( http://www.short-media.com/review.php?r=271&p=6 ) and replaced old thermal paste with AS5 !! I also have a 92mm fan blowing from the bottom of th card like a ghetto PCI Slot Fan. Would an actual aftermarket cooler help at this moment?

When i had my 9800XT i had the same problems overclocking as you are with your 9800 Pro, i would run ati tool and it would do exactly what you just said it underclocked itself, and when i overclocked it myself manually like maybe 5mhz higher it would severly artifact and the temps where outragous at stock temps, anyhow i never came up with a solution as to why it was doing that and sold it.

The 9800Pro series was a great card, but the 128MB versions are fairly old, while a good card stock, I jsut dont think the cooling capacity and chip can handle much more than maybe XT speeds.

I AGREE. It doesnt have very sufficient cooling. I also belive it depends on the momory chips on your card to how well it will oc.

Back when I had a 9800 pro I found that having motherboard monitor 5 installed would do this. Severe artifacting when OC and atitool would lower clocks lower than stock. Once I removed MB5 the card clocked up nicely. Ended up at 440/365 with a little bump in voltage and 420/365 with stock voltage. Note: I had to completely uninstall MB5. I think the driver probe was the problem.
