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?
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.
Well my 9600SE dosent got a temp reader, whouldent that make overcloking dangerous?
ouch that card will not give u any good over clock.

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.
So I can just push that find max core/memory clock and dont worry?
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.
