    Thanks guys for the replies.

    I'm a little afraid to overclock my cpu because at default clock when running full load the temperature can reach 60C. I think I need to get a better cpu cooler first.

    yea those pentiumd's run really hot and consumes much power since your board is msi 965 it should run core2duo i got e2180 for 55$ and the e4600 for 85$ you should buy one and oc it instead of buying a new cooler since these chips runs cool c2d @ 2.0ghz beats pd @ 4.0 !! so :) get one cheap ones and oc it to 3.0 or 3.2 worth it

    Hey...alright, so I was having issues with my frame rates dropping to like the low single digits when playing games such as CoD 4 and Crysis, and a friend suggested I get Riva Tuner and use it to check my core temp, and when the next time one of my games crashed out on me, my temperature was reading at about 125. Even now, after my computer was sitting in standby mode for a while, it's reading at 86. This is just a recent thing that it only started doing maybe a month ago, and i'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions about how I could try to fix this.

    fan speed

    Download Rivatuner from guru3d site.

    You can then adjust the fan speed.

    Why only move 5mz at a time? What about if you already know your cards potentiality speeds and underclocked it then put it back up?

    ...because every card is different and even though they might have the same chip on them, doesn't mean they have the same overclocking potential.

    If you overclock it too much at once you might also damage the card...

    Hi all!

    I'd like to ask some questions about troubleshooting. I've got a 8600GTS, and the card produces some errorneus phenomenon inordinately. Sometime right after startup the pictrue at the screen is fallen into pieces, some strange geometric forms like rainbowy rectangles are rendered( like an lsd trip or something) it looks like so, when a card is OC-d, and not stable, but not that much unstable, that the system should freeze or restart. So it wotks like this, BUT! only just restarting the computer seems to be solve the problem, cause right after the malfunciton dissapears, and looks so, if there didnt where any problem before, the card is fully stable, produces no error in any circumstances through a relalitvely long period of time, but randomly this phenomenon appears after a few days, and restarting again makes it disappear. What could be the problem source? I have misgivings, that something isnt right at loading the VGA BIOS, and if there is any wrong value loaded, then it reproduces this thing. I dont have any exact idea what it could be, but I thinking on such things, that the vram, or the gpu is undervolted or too high frequency is set...so such things like this. I tried to read BIOS data with Nibitor, but I couldnt, because it faild to start driver, as I wanted to select the device. ( error code 1275 )I dont know, if that is bacause of the x64 Vista( there is a x64 driver in Nibitors folder ), which I use, or just because Nibitor dosent support the latest nv driver. Someone help plz! Thnx!

    hey funkymonkey, great post, do you have any suggestions for me?? I have a GeForce 9600M GS card, and unfortunately I cannot find any Quadro compatible with it to overcloak the card, I use this video editing software called AVID, and unfortunately I cannot use it on a GeForce. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the guide i've overclocked my XFX 9600 GT

    Here are my results :)

    its stable with a 60c temperture

    GPU clock: default: 700 to 800MHz
    Memory: default: 1000 to 1100MHz
    Shader: default 1750 to 1900MHz

    but seriuosly... When i've overclocked it I don't see soooo many differents I must say...

    Welcome to Guru3D, rutgertje. :)

    Well, sometimes even 1 - 3 frames per second more in a game can make a noticeable difference. Also, you have to remember that it's about the knowledge and experience that you did push your card to its limit, and were able to squeeze that little extra performance out of it - which others don't have by just using the stock clocks...

    Hello Guys.
    I have NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT (1 GB) graphic card.
    I've read that it can be soft-modded to Quadro.
    Basically, I am a designer and now-a-days I've to work on 3DS Max. Anyone could please let me know how to do that? Please?

    An odd observation with overclocking

    If youre not looking for an extreme overclock, you might want to try a different angle.
    Clocks for a given chip vary by manufacturer, Try other manufacturers clock settings.
    I also found....
    i have a 6800xt(unlocked) and this clock setting seems to work well.. 401 core 441 mem.. why!?!?
    the ramdac is running at 400, so is my gpu... My system ram is running at 440, so is my video memory(hynix ddr1).
    if you overclock your gpu and Vram by different percentages, you can actually cause lower framerates, even though it is overclocked.
    I actually found overclocking everything, including cpu and system ram by the same percentage, Accentuates the overclock.
    the exception to this:
    Calculate ddr series as a multiplier.
    if you use ddr2 system ram @ 800mhz and ddr3 video ram, your video ram would want to be at 1200mhz.
