not if it's gonna fuck things up i'm not. i was just curious i guess. there really isn't any games i play (or intend to play) which will warrant overclocking the GPU.
It wont "fuck" things up unless you dont know what you are doing or you crank up the overclock to the max, which will heat the card up like hell.
If you download a GPU stress test program you could run that to check the temps at max load. Increase OC by 5% or less at the time and repeat test with temps to check. Time consuming business..
AzHthanks for that. . . . (that will be the prupose of the thread, yeah? to find out?)
Haha, sorry. I have a tool, but for ATI, that will steadely increase the core clock speed, then the memory clock until an artifact (error) comes up. Then the program will VERY slowely down the clock speeds untill a balance between speed and performance is met. I'll keep my eyes open for a tool that will work for nVidia.
i just use Coolbits. Its so easy.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Umm....DL a registry hack called coolbits. The instructions will be on the site, and it's integrated directly with nVidia's drivers....it has an autodetect function, I use it with stock cooling and all my 3d games work without any corruption.... I have my 3D settings as follow, and I dont even have a fan on my card..... 283 core 403 memory. Now, you'll know its fucked up when you see weird pink things and other anomalies.....

the coolbits registry hack is great... start atleast, but a while ago i found an article(on guru3d i beleive but not sure now) that showed how to jumper some power regulator circuits on the nvidia FX series cards to allow core voltage tweaking. im setting up a watercooling system soon and wish i knew where that article was so i could take the overclocking a little further. If anyone has seen this article or a similar one could you post a link plz.
