so i took the plunge and got an eVGA 8800GT while on special, and she won't make any noticeable difference when i clock her!

i'm no pro with rivatuner, but at 700/whatever, i think 1750 (i linked the clocks), 3dmark06 crashed, and at 675/whatever (again with linked clocks), it went through most of the tests, but on one, the balloon one, it was showing two slightly fuzzy images of the screen, so i called it quits. Both sessions the fan was manually set to 50%, and the memory was left at stock

I did a manual runthrough using atitool to scan for artifacts and rivatuner to get the clocks up, but i can only hit the clocks in my sig... on a 60% fan. anyone know how i can get more performance? cos i was promised if i OC it, i get an 8800GTS basically...

Well to start, why not set the fan to 100%? That's how I clocked stable at 710 core clock linked in Rivatuner, and 1015 memory. Noticeable difference in crysis. I also rigged an 80mm spot fan blowing exhaust between my SLI cards out a gap in the PCI bay.

Yea set fans to 100% and use ATItool to scan for artifacts. Remember that all cards are different and an overclock on one 8800 may not be achievable on another 8800
