yo man,

that card is a delight to overclock

i pushed mine VERY very hard, for over a year and its still working great.
I took it all apart, put arctic silver on all the contact point to the h/s and then put ram heat sinks on and put a vantec fan card under the vga slot and it worked fantastic.

you can push it to 400 /600 ... thats where mine was

cheers!

Youll know when you see them. There blocks that shoot around the screen and everything looks messed up. Turn one down and see if it helps (core, memory) get the artifacts to go away. Once your at the highest core/mem with no artifacts then youve the hit highest you can go with your stock cooling.

You put it in your registry files. Once you put it in you go to properties-advanced-settings-then your vid card-clock frequency settings. That should get you there if you have xp.

Yea. I'd go with Coolbits. I OC'd my crappy MX440 about 20MHz, But thats because I didn't get any stability over 30MHz. But I could have gone over 50MHz successfully.

The 2 frequencies you can adjust are the cards core frequencies (GPU) and the cards memory frequencies which are the memory modules on the card. To use coolbits, download the regiestry file or make one your self by getting the coolbits code and then saving the file as a .reg, then to open the frequency menu, right click your desktop then go analog display>>Frequencies (which you'll find on the left hand side.

When your in there do a auto detection then see if your card is stable by running a demanding game or benchmark and look for freezes and/or artifacts. Artifacts are usually caused by memory and freezing is usually caused by the GPU/Core.

When coolbits detects your maximum frequncies they ussually detect them to high becuase they havent stressed the card enough, but do a bunch of tests and keep adjusting till you get optimal settings.
