Overclocking an ASUS N6600 256MB PCI/E:
I used a program called coolbits to edit the registry (an nvid automatic overclock finder program + other unlocked advanced settings) to overclock my card. You do this by going to desktop>prop>disp>advanced>nvidtab>clock frequency>find optimal settings and apply.
However I'm not sure if this is the best solution. How do you do manual overclocking? Does automation do its job or is manual better? Would it be risky?

ok i will help you but im am not responible for that damage that you do to your card.
Ok so now we click on cool bits it will automaticly unlock the overclocking tab in an nvidia driver.
Next we click auto-overclocking mode to see how far our card will go. ok 450/1150
ok now we get ATI tools install it open up its artifact scanner it will work with nvidia cards beacuse it renders 3D.
click manual overclocking in the driver tab read terms and conditions.
Next you get the manual overclocking mode :D
adjust clocks 5mhz at a time until artifacts apper on ati.
apply your overclock run 3d mark 03 nature test
see any atifacts if so you downclock your card.
for best results i reccomend better cooling, hope this helps. Black

to answer your question, yes, manual ocing generally is better than using the auto detect. in most cases you can go quite a bit over what it autodetects at, without artefacts.
on a side/future note: there are wonderful stickies in the nvidia section (where this should be, i might add) that deal with this issue :) i suggest you check em out, they are really helpful, and give alternate ways to ocing the card. (Rivatuner, Powerstrip, etc)
