i have a Gforce FX5200 Ultra 128MB. and i tried using cool bits to overclock it but when i download and install it, I right click on my desktop and then the settings tab, then the advanced button but then i have not got the option to choose my card like the instructions say. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am new to this software (coolbits). I have an ASUS A7V8XX mobo w/ 1gb pc3200 ram 160 gb W/D HDD. and a AMD 2600+ processor w/300 watt PS. Thanks in advance. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

I avoid aginst OCing the 5200Ultra, I had one, and while they have headroom the coolers on them suck, and even with a 5mhz OC mine would over heat. I suggest a newer AGP card.

I,m not sure about getting into coolbits main menu,not really sure how to be honest, but dont see anywhere to do it. It was just a 0.1mb download and it made the changes to the reg. automatically. I have changed the fan and modified the cooling on it, right now it actually don't even get warm so it stays almost cold. Thanks in advance.

I have a VF900 and I feel it's a terrible waste on my FX5200.<br />

Stock cooling should do fine. Firstly, have you installed your graphics drivers correctly? <br />
Verify that you have by rightclicking your desktop, and if there is a nVidia menu, it is installed correctly.<br />
Now, if you run with the 9x.xx drivers, you would have lesser problems. Just go into one of the menus and select "Classic Control Panel"

Agreed I used to have a 5200 and it was a horrible overclocker. Get you self a better agp card you can get a decent one for pretty cheap these days on newegg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
