Hey, I have been trying to oc my video card after ocing the rest of my system and it isn't ocing very well even tho I have been told that bfg's oc really well. I've pretty much maxed out at like 390 gpu core clock and I haven't even really touched the memory speed yet. Any suggestions of how I can get a better oc out of my card? I think that I should at least be able to get it into the 400's (gpu cc).

I've heard that it really doesn't help much at all in overclocking the 6800GT, it just increases the temps. But you can always flash it back

Couple questions:

1. Are you on stock cooling? If so then get something better, at least AS5 it'll make a difference.
2. Update your drivers to something new and install the coolbits registry crack so you can mod your clock speed.
3. Bios Flashing? Not necessary if you haven't even cracked the 400MHz mark. I'm running 450MHz on the stock bios. If you insist on it (remember it voids the warranty unless you can flash it back before RMAing) then check out my BFG flashing thread here. Read it thoroughly cuz it's something you don't wanna screw up on.

Good luck
