Garandhero Posted November 7, 2007 Report Share Posted November 7, 2007 This was my first overclock Experiance ~ Firstly, after much self doubt I got 169.01 drivers..... I didnt do any unistall or anything to start it off, I just downloaded them and installed them with the "Have Disk" method for Vista.. Testing was as follows; 3dMark 06 Driver Version 156.69 Stock 475/400 Score: 3025 After Driver Update: Driver Version 169.01 Stock 475/400 Score: 3195 Anyway, im not sure if my results would be better with a clean install but maybe when the next good driver release comes out ill do a full clean install if someone can tell me the steps for that sort of thing? Anyway... After some deliberation I decided to try my first overclock ever... Using nTune I overclocked to 600/480 Score after Overclock Driver Version 169.01 OC'd 600/475 Score: 3866 As you can see it was quite a large jump after the Overclock... Temperatures seemed to remain very stable (My room was real cold at the time of testing though) I dont think the temps went over 55C. Certainly not over 60 and I saw no artifacting during the 3dmark 06 stress test. Anyway What do you all think? Should I push it more? Also, I noticed some people raise the Mem Clock above the core clock... is this advisable? is it more useful than raising the core clock? Thanks any advice or recommended freq. settings you think I ought to try let me know! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
