My VERY first overclock ever.


I kinda cheated :P I used ATI's Overdrive to change my 2600xt.
But it is my very first.

Old: 800MHz(GPU)/700MHz(MEM)
New: 900/1050

Now if you asked me to explain it to you I would be lost. I DO notice about 10 more FPS in F.E.A.R. though. (more like 5-8)
From what I read, nobody can really get it too much higher than this. Some think it's due to the drivers.

I.M.O.G.: I'm sorry to inform you that your sig violates forum rules. Due to obscene, and frankly ugly, choices of colors you must change this. I suggest brown and orange perhaps.
lol JK... Congratulations on your season. Greetings from Cleveland, the home of "There's always next year".

im sure you can take that cpu to 3.0-3.2 atleast set it at stock volts and see how high it goes man just start ramping up the fsb and leave the ram at stock for now while you try to find the highest oc

I would be very satisfied with 3.0. I'll start looking into it though.
