<span style="font-family:System;">I am still learning about overclocking. So far I am only trying to get the vid card oc'ing down.</span> I have an ATI x700pro 128. Stock its 425/430 I O'ced it to about 445/450. I have NO heating issues. My temp pretty much didnt even change onced I oc'ed it. And I play BF2 with LOW settings on it almost everyday for hours at a time, and CounterStrike: Source on MAX settings. <span style="color:#FF0000;">So my question is if anyone knows what some of the clocks have been used on my card. And if that little Oc will do anything. I notice very little performance increase if any in BF2.</span>

i own the same card as you but i dont know about you but mines agp and has gddr3 ram, i also have installed a new zalman fan for higher overclocks. if you want to know what range your card can perform at then for stock cooling its 440 max maby a bit over or under for the core and 500 for the memory maby a bit over or under thats what i could hit without any artifacts but with zalman cooling i can reach 450 to 465 max for the core and 550 to 570 for the memory.<br />

if you just want a nice overclock that wont crash in games try setting your core to 430 or 435 and set your memory to 460 to 480 and you should have better performance in games and for your frames per second should go higher by around 10 to 20 frames<br />
<br />
if it crashes because of to high of an overclock then set both core and memory down by 5mhz eash time you crash intill you get a safe, cool and no artifact's overclock.<br />
<br />
if you are using ati overdrive to overclock your card then change to ati tools because overdrive loosens your memory timings which makes the card slower but i dont think that you have overdrive because i dont have it either, the best program is ati tool.<br />
<br />

hope i have helped you<img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />
