Here I am again, asking another n00b question... I know coolbits is designed to help your graphics card overclocking. My question is, what is the latest coolbits version (the best I've found on google were a couple of sites explaining the use of coolbits for the windows 2000 :eek: ) Or which version works best for my GeForce 7300 SE :confused: Thanks a lot anyway

Overclocking a 7300SE? Is that a joke?

The problem with trying to overclock the 7300SE is that the increase in performance would be so marginal/slight that it wouldn't be worth it.

Furthermore, the cooling solution that the 7300SE uses (probably just a stock heatsink) wouldn't be sufficient to keep the card cool if you tried to overclock it, and you would likely end up frying the card.

Not in nVidia's book (or BFG's for that matter, but that's for another topic) - seeing as the Go! 7400 is merely an overclocked Go! 7300...

Fair enough, they're mobile chips, but the core architecture is broadly the same as the standard 7300, with the addition of PowerMizer and a couple of other, ehm, "enhancements" such as TurboCache.

To answer your question, Coolbits is included in the Nvidia Forceware drivers but its a hidden "feature" by default. you don't download it seperately. However, what those site do offer to download is a automatic registry fix to enable it without having to manually edit the registry.

So in other words, if you have the latest drivers, you have the latest version of Coolbits.

Don't expect much out of a 7300SE though.

Hm. Just out of curiosity, how much would I be able to get out of a 7900GTX? Also, how stupid would it be to try and overclock stuff in a laptop?

You could probably over clock a 7900GTX a decent amount (maybe 10% or so). It probably isn't worth doing, the 7900 is already plenty powerful.

Overclocking on a laptop is a very bad idea. The laptop wouldn't be able to handle the extra heat, and you would either fry the video card, or some other part of your laptop.

Yes, that's what I was afraid of. Thanks.
