I wanted to overclock my GPU in my old computer a 9600SE but when I went into the catalyst control center i couldent find ATI overdrive. Isent there any overdrive possibility with 9600 series? If thats the case what other software can I use to overclock the GPU?

Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, I used "ATI Tool" to OC my old 9600XT.

Get it here: http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/

That app can be used with both ATI and Nvidia cards, btw.

Perhaps.

I like ATITool's artifact checker. It allows you to keep pushing the card until it artifacts, and then you can back it off a bit. I did so safely with mine, but your mileage may vary. It felt safe anyways... ;)

I think I only managed about a 10% OC on my old XT though.

ATI Tool is the best in my opinion.

I've used ATI Tool to overclock both of my old X800's, and my 7300GT. If your card don't have a temp sensor just watch out for any artifacting while your ingame, and when you run the Artifact scanner in ATI Tool, with my 7300 i had the problem of it not detecting a few artifacts that i could see.

ATI Tool will find the max stable overclock if you click where it says "Find Max Core" or "Find Max Memory". One thing i recommend with it is before you start overclocking, go into the artifact scanning settings and put the artifact detection on "Lower Overclock/More Artifacts Detected", IMO with that setting is a safer and more stable overclock.

I got a extra 150Mhz core and 113Mhz memory out of my 7300 with it. But don't expect results like that, how well the card handels overclocking is different for every card.
