Can I Overclock My 850XT PE?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an ATI Brand 850XT PE? I have a Zalman VF700-CU VGA Cooler installed on it. I have heard that I cannot overlclock this card? Can I overclock it using Overdrive in the Catalyst Control Center or ATI Tool?

Get the Omega drivers.

Are those drivers better than ATI Drivers?

Omega drivers aren't any good, no need to get them over the good ol Catalyst drivers, unless you really hate the CCC.

You can overclock your X850 XT PE, but the card is also clocked really really high, so you won't get much further.

X850 cores can reach 600mhz, even up to 650 with some EXCELLENT cooling, the memory can reach 650mhz with cooling, passive cooling will prob only allow it to get to 620mhz or so.

Before you do that though, check to see what your maximum core temperature is after gaming for a few hours, so you can see how much temperature over head you got.

Use ATI Tool to do all of these things btw.
