Overclocking Geforce FX Go5200


Headshot

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I was getting some poor performance in Counter Strike Source, I would get this problem, well it's hard to explain so here is a picture:

This is a picture of the budget in CSS where it shows what resources are used, also my MS and fps.

This is a picture during the 2-3 second fps lag. (it only lags 1-4 seconds every 2 minuites or so.)

It's not my internet, though it says my ms goes higher, I used ping plotter and pinged a few places and I get no loss etc. I tweaked my system with turning off AA and all that, and it helped for awhile then it came back, I use the 67.66 drivers (they say there the fastest).

Here is a picture of my task manager.

Without Game open:

When game is open my CPU usage is about 350mb or so.

Oh and I have Direct X 9.0c installed but I run the game using Direct X 7 or 8. I run the game at 800x600 or at 1024x800 (or whatever the 1024 res is) I use Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 64mb

I would like to know how I could overclock my GPU to get most out of it, and what it should be set at, or any other things that could help.

Thanks,

Tim

Since you have a 5150, try using this inf (from this thread). Find the Coolbits line and set it to 3 before you install. That will give you an overclocking page.

I've found the 5150 can run with a core clock of 225 and a memory clock of 450 without overheating, as long as you keep your vents free of dust, and keep your main system power profile on "Laptop" and don't force the CPU to run at full speed all the time.

Let me know if it helps.

Ill try that, I'm not on my laptop right now so ill post when I get on it, and is there a way to find out what temp. my GPU and CPU is running at?

And is it a good idea to use a reg key entry to enable overclocking as in this thread:

Download I8KFanGUI from http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/index.html. The 5150 doesn't have a GPU temp sensor, but does have one for the CPU.

The registry link you found enables the same overclocking page as the inf, but the inf includes several other performance tweaks you probably need.

No, just leave your main power profile on "Laptop" and you'll be fine. It will bump the CPU up to full speed whenever needed, and drop down to half speed to cool off when CPU demand drops.

If you want to try SpeedSwitch, I believe it has a similar setting.
