Hello guys, i am new in here ;]. Well i started enjoying overclocking after i bougt my athlon 2500xp barton AND then i said" i won't overclock it' 1,8 ghz is enough for me, but after a week, i overclocked it
... Hehe, now i i have 3200 xp.. But i didn't stop on that. And now i come to this part of overclocking, i WANNA boost up my granny, my old radeon 9000(128 mb, 128 bit, 250 core, 200 memo)... Well i tried to check max core, i used ati tool , and managed to boost it up to 310, but after then it could go on because of errors and artifacts (artifacts ar not visible), so i thought **** it, i need better cooling, well and today i bought "cooler master cool viva vga cooler", but i didn't attached it yet, i'll do it on saturday or sunday, but i am writting here to ask what should i expect from it?

p.s anyway i will use this cooler on the following cards, and hello to everyone

Welcome to the forums bro, as far as the cool master viva vga cooler i hope your gonna have enough room in your computer for it to fit thats gonna take up a pci slot, but i would say "ambient depending" that your temps should drop anywhere from 3-10 give or take with that vga cooler

Make sure to post back with results when you have hooked it up.

Welcome to the forum.

As far as what you should expect after installing the cooler, well you should be able to get a little more out of it, but I will not promise you. every card overclocks different. a cooler is going to help it, maybe not make it overclock more but will definitely make run more stable.

i would reccomend you up you AGP voltage up threw the bios to 1.6 and then use RivaTuner and up your core to 330 and your mem to 230 and try that!

the cooler will allow a better overclock i think you should get to 330/230 or a bit more, but if you dont have the cooler you gonna get artifacts quick becuase of over heating.

lol, when i was testing, its core, when there where ~300 mhz temp was much more then 50 because, when i put common termometer on it it raised to 42 very fast, and as it is elevtronic it show " high"
well, hope new cooler will make a change for it. Here is fotos of old one and new one coolers :

Ok, guys, i've put it on, well but that's not the problem
. When i turn my pc, while windows are loading, it shows me artifacts, the same is on bios. Hmm, what could it be? Well about overclocking max core 320~ and max mem 247, how far should i raise them? should i raise the power .. ?

P.s i bought it at pc store, for 20~ $
