Welcome to the Forums :D

Whats the manufactuar of your card? Gainward, Visiontek, Hercules, and PNY all seem to overclock VERY well with stock cooling. Do you happen to know what your video card memory is rated at in nanoseconds? Mine for instance is 4ns. Quick equation to find out what the memory is rated at after finding the ns rating... is 1000/Xns... eg. 1000/4ns=250... 250 DDR=500 MHz :D So I can EASILY run my memory at 500 MHz with stock cooling. What kind of cooling does your card have on the GPU? Mine (a gainward) has an orb looking fan. VERY effective... I'm able to push my GPU upto TI500 speeds with no problems (240 GPU and 500 mem)... try to figure out this stuff... if you need help finding it... let us know... we'll help ya out no problem ;)

Six inches to the right.
It would also be best to find out what your current temps are. No point in pushing it as far as you can, if you don't know where you already are.

I've had my Gainward at 225 core and 520 mem for about 2 weeks now without any problems. I do however have a driver problem. The only driver I can get to work with 3DMark2001se are the 21.81s from the gainward website. Otherwise the fps and other information doesn't show up while the benchmark is in progress. Does anybody else have this problem or does anybody have a fix. I'm using an Aopen AX34 mobo with Via chipset.

GeForce Ti200

I am also looking at a GFTi200, and the best deal I can find in my area is a leadtek, does anyone know about the overclockability of this brand?

Hi Ratty,

I assume you have a similar GF3ti200 I have (passive heatsink, no ramsinks). I am currently running this in 210/430 so you're not far off......I started a similar thread yesterday and got no real answers....guess we both need to buy new cooling for our new babies:p

greetings,

The answer is that noone knows. Every card will perform different. You could pick up two of the same cards from the same brand off of the same shelf at the same store and one might max at 190/480 and one might do 240/550. Its complete luck.

That being said, any of the Ti200 cards with active gpu cooling will pretty much hit the speeds of a regular gf3. Some people get lucky and their card will do the speed of a Ti500. My visiontek does 220/500 with no problems, now I need to get the time to install a tweak program that can take it higher than that and see what it does. From what I've read I think the max you will get with stock cooling is in the 240/550 range. I dont recall anyone saying they are running theirs faster than that with stability. Also Visiontek and Gainward are two of the brands people seem to consistently get good overclocking results with.

granted, every single card has its own will in terms of o/c:ing, but there is certainly of interest to compare your card to others with the same type of cooling.:rolleyes:

No kidding, I've never heard of that on a GF3. My GF2mx200 just had a heatsink on the gpu but then again that card sucked.

GF3Ti200

I was actually wondering if there are any brands that are better for overclocking. I am thinking that a Leadtek GF3TI200 128MB would be a good one, but i dont know of anyone who has used one or knows a brand that is good for OC'ing

My vote for that would be Gainward. Their Golden Sample cards are "guaranteed" to overclock and is covered by the warranty. The rules for a Golden Sample card with Gainward are VERY lineant (<-spelling?). Water from my watercooling setup dripped on mine and fried it and they replaced it no problem. :D

Other brands like PNY, Hercules, and Visiontek also overclock very well with stock cooling.

And Gainward is the only company I know for sure that has the 128 MB version. It comes as... <drumroll please>.... GOLDEN SAMPLE :D Someone here on the Forums has one... and is pleased with it.

ya, it is the card that came with my dell.....don't start picking on me know, I didn't pay for it:p Still if you guys check out either the dell homepage or nvidias you will find a gf3ti200 with passive cooling and no ramsinks. It sucks I know, but on the upside I can put exactly what I want there without having to remove anything first:D

Where can we pick up one of those golden sample cards? How much do they cost?

I got my 64 MB version from Newegg.com. I got it in December (so prices have dropped) for $194 which included Next day shipping :D

Just checked and Newegg.com also has the 128 MB version... $175 plus $6 Fedex saver shipping... in stock :D


Sorry... here's a link for newegg.com... both the 64 and 128 versions are about 2 or 3 up from the bottom of the page. The 128 is RIGHT after the 64.
