I just overclocked my BFG 7600gt from:

Memory Clock Frq: 1450mh
3d clock Frq: 580Mhz

to:

"""": 1550MH
"""": 630mhz

After doing the overclock, the card is fine, temps about 45* idle and 55* load, however whenever i open up a game E.g. BF2 or NFSC, the card seems to hang.
For example, i will be playing and then all of a sudden everything will freeze incl. the music. The music then stops for about a second and then everything is back to normal and i carry on playing. I sometimes see textures turning black in game and when i return to Nvidia control panel afterwards to look at temps, it shows a huge drop at the exact time the hang happened.

My specs are:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
1GB OCZ Gold
Hiper 580W GT-R
Asus P5B Deluxe
Antec Nine Hundred
Stock 7600gt cooling

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Go to your user CP and put your specs in there.

Simply put: Not getting the voltage it needs for those speeds.
method: look in my sig, the XFX one has a link to the reference one.

Edit: damn, he beat me D';

So by shading those two resistors, it gives me a greater voltage?

Is there any chance that the voltage could be too high and wreck the card or does it rise in proportion to the OC?

The reason i am being so careful is that i have just spent £600 on new parts and i cannae afford a new Graphics card!
