Suggestions for best card for % OC:ing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm new here, although I've been a long time enthusiast and amateur overclocker I'm thinking about getting more serious with my OC'ing adventures...

I'm actually thinking about entering a competition with a friend that's an amateur as well.

It's a GPU overclocking competition.
You are only allowed to use air-cooling and the winner will be the one with the highest overclock in percent when you add both % on memory and gpu.

So do you guys got any good recommendations based on your experience on what card(s) to try that could potentially generate the highest percent-vise oc'ing result?

I've just heard someone suggest Geforce 210, what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance for all suggestions and help, cheers!

The Best ever overclocker I have seen is the Radeon 9550! I had a Sapphire with tweaked air cooling (stock sink + Pentium 4 fan)
It got from 250 to 520Mhz!! You do the math That's ~110% Should win with that GL

Wow!! That's awesome, great tip! Should be a real contender if we mod it with like a crazy Noctua NH-U12P/delta-fan combo.. I'll try to find one at once... =) Really appreciate it!
