    is there a guideline relationship for raising gpu core and cpu memory clock speeds?

    i.e. if you raise core from 250 to 280, is there a guide to how far you can raise gpu memory clock?

    i'm having trouble raising clock speeds inside Nvidia control panel. says it won't take any higher speed w/o testing first and ALL tests fail at any speed change. auto-detect just leaves settings at default. any suggestions here?

    how have you changed the clock speeds?

    and how much improvement do you get out of that?

    The reason your unable to change the clock settings in the driver just depends on the driver version. I know 44.03 driver allows me to test and save beyond what its capable when testing in benches/games. The new drivers will not, so you have to use coolbits or any other utilitiy that modifies the registry. I personally like NVHardpage adds more options in the driver.

    Its easy. Take off the stupid fun on your vga and change it with fun from old pentium, then stick it on the GPU with something so it dont fall down. same thig make with RAMs, then turn on The Riva Tuner or nVidiaHard and slowly change the frequencies. Dont change freqencies from 250/400 to 300/650 once!!!! your vga will burn. Make it slowly, frt 260/520 then 270/540 and so.

    Good luck :)

    not quite sure on overclocking these beasts. but start with a 5% increase than go out slowly and use caution wwhen you o/c by 10%. I cant wait to get my Prolink Fx5200. Its at 275/500 stock!!! But anyways, check the nanosecond rating on your memory as well.

    how are you guys getting into the xxx/500 ranges?

    my stock clock on my card is 250/400.

    that sound right?

    mine's a PNY FX 5200

    no idea why those are the clock settings...

    when i go into the clock adjustments in the 45.23 drivers (starstorm), that's what the default settings are at under the 'advanced 3D' drop down.

    what i'm trying to figure out is how some people on futuremark are showing clocks at 300/500-600 ...

    All the FX5200s will have the same GPU unless there's a few newer revisions but I don't think there are for the 5200. Anyways OEMs put different speed ramchips on their boards. Some have crappy 6ns while others 4ns or slightly faster on the 5200s. Even some have the really crappy 64bit bus instead of 128bit. Then you have options of 64/128/256M amount of onboard ram.

    Come to think of it I believe I answered this question once before!:rolleyes:
