go to like he said guru3d and download atitool for ati vcards and if you vcard has a temp on it it will be on the attool also ..download it and overclock a little at a time until you see artifacts (white dots) on the 3d screen and ajust memery a liitle at a time also ...p.s be careful also ....go slowly since its your first time ocing a vcard...btw which 9600 pro you have brand ..

you will have to be careful, as soon as you see artifacts back it down ,,now on my vcard i dont have a probe on it so as the same i back it down . no problems with stock fan .. now thats my vcard each card is diff.. so when koolnace send me my screws for the wawa block it will be on water .. i would suggest in getting a better fan for your vcard.. to be safe..now you can go a little bit i dont think it would hurt..just be Careful.....:shades2:

ATI tool is def your best bet. It found the max of my 9600 pro whcih came out about 500 core and 1Ghz mem. Think i've got a high oc card though.

Yeh that is rather good, I thought I was doing ok overclocking my 128MB HIS Excalibur 9600pro to 450mhz core and 350mhz (700mhz effective) memory using a stock fan. Only thing is I dont have a GPU thermometer chip thingy on my card so I have to go by one thats near the card. Im upgrading my GFX card soon hopefully so doesn't matter too much if it burns but I hope not.

Hey guys....sorry for bringing this back from the dead but I did a serach and this is perfect. I have a Sapphire 9600 Pro 256MB. Why do I start getting artifacts when my Memory is at 250? And my core is at about 450? I thought I could do a little better...why does yours do so well and mine not?

How is that? They make cards differently? 9600 Pro A should = 9600 Pro B. Oh well...looks like I pulled the small straw on this one.

Just finished checking out the ATI tool...checked the MAX core and Mem. I got 50MhZ out of the Core and just over 15MhZ on the Mem! What is this? I got more overclocking out of my FX 5200!
