Overclocking 9500GT (is this good result?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have Zotac 9500GT graphics card (I know its a low end one.. :/) I wanted to overclock it to increase the performance little bit. so with rivatuner I overclocked it to...

core clock - 760MHz (stock 550MHz)
memory clock - 500MHz (stock 400MHz)
Shader clock - 1800MHz (stock 1350MHz)

now the temp is 55c idle (65c-75c full load)

and I've got 30-33 FPS max and about 22 FPS average with BFBC2. no noticeable 'effects'. smooth gameplay.
settings- high (AA- x4, 1360x768)

1) is this good result for this card? i couldn't go 'high' with bfbc2 with stock settings though.

2) and with this overclock, could it do any damage for the card?

Thank you!

First of all, is that overclock stable?

You won't damage the card if the temps aren't high and if you didn't overvolt (but I could be wrong).

And overclocking a 9500gt won't give you any noticeable dramatic increase

I think my max temp is under 75c. so its not 'high' i guess.

yeah i know. at least i could play BFBC with max settings..

You could overclock that card to the moon and it would still be sluggish.
