I got a geforce 2 GTS from creative labs, am using a blue orb on it and I have it sandwiched cooled with another heatsink/fan combo on the exact opposite side of the board. It makes contact withe the 3 metal thingies and it DRAMATICALLY helps cool the GPU. I am fixing to pus heatsinks on the ram. What do you all think is a safe overclocking frequency for the core and ram?? don't give me the actual speed just give me the PLUS MHZ, and keep in mind my AGP bus is at 81 already

just keep doing up untill the graphics get messed up, then go down till it is stable, some times a too hight speed will slow it down

What is your stock core/ram speeds? Are they 200/333? If so, I've seen cards (and am trying to get mine there) that have been clocked to 220/450. If you want to try this, remember to slowly bring your core/ram speeds up, by about 5 mhz increments. You can kill the card if you go too high too fast. I like the sound of your cooling setup, it would be difficult for me to do that to my Leadtek card; they've pop-rivuted the heatsink right to the board, and a freind cracked his core getting it off. What type of heat sinks are you putting on the ram? I was thinking of doing that, too.

I am cutting up my stock intel heatsink that came with my pentium 700 into 8 small heatsinks. Then I am using silver artic wpoxy to stick the sinks to the ram

I wouldn't even bother with OCing the core. Just up the RAM. That will make WAY more difference than OCing the core and without the unpleasant extra heat generated by a faster running core.

I didn't plan on bumping up the core much more only liek to 210 or 220. The RAM is the bottleneck on the geforce 2 not the GPU. I am pulling 138 FPS on high quality I think I am getting limited by my processor ([email protected])
