8600GT Overclocking help..

457 Views 11 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  PlUgOuT
I'm using 9800GTX+ and i'm very proud of it. I'm also using a 8600GT for Dedicated PhysX but i can't really say PhysX is it's thing! Can i overclock this card to get better performance? I'm downloading riva tuner v2.24 and although i'm a little familiar with overclocking , GPU ocing looks like it has nothing to do with fsb or etc. Can you help me?..

Do the desktop versions of the 8600 have the same fatal flaw as 8600m? If so don't OC.
What fatal flaw:|? I don't know about this. Where can i learn about it more?..
no they dont, also an 8600 on stock cooling can do about 600/1800/1700. Or my EVGA one did
But that's evga. I mean evga
. This is just a normal 8600GT. Should i go for it?..

yeah worst that can happen is it will go fussy on the screen and you will need to reboot!
Ok then what should i go for? any specific mhz or any speed relevant thing in your mind?..
lol with a good air system these things did 1000/2000/2000

but thats massive voltage

I don't trust my cooling so i don't wanna play with voltages. Any "safe" values in stock voltage maybe?..

Some of my previous 8600GT overclocking experiences -



Good luck with it!
Is there an 8600GT ocing guide? Where do i start? Is there anything special that i need to know?

I have to admit even though i love my 8600GT as a "card" , it kills me in mirror's edge as a physx card. I heard 9800GT is a perfect PPL and i was wondering if i oc my 8600GT , would it be as good as or almost good as 9800GT..
And another thing. Why does my temp always stays at 42c. It goes neither up nor down..
