Is there a temp sensor on a geforce4 mx420? if there is, how can I access it? If not, recommendations for a cheap method of getting the temp would be helpful. :)

also, I want to get this card oc'ed a ton, but don't have my watercooling setup yet. (post in extreme cooling :D). How high do you all think I could get it on air cooling? I would experiment, but I don't have an extra hundred dollars to get a ti4200 if I blow it.:(

Oh, one more thing, Kinda a tangent but related...how much of a performance increase would I see by taking my sdram up to about 150mhz?

Thanks...

i had the mx440, u can see in my sig how far i got the core / mem, there is no temp monitor on your card, best bet is to see if u can get a cheap monitor, i got one for £20, dunno us prices, sdram.....not sure u will see too much performance boost and not even sure u will 150+ mhz on that card, thats quite alot to ask ! id estimate 80mhz tops. let us know how u get on and post some 3dmark results :D

My GeForce4 MX440 came stock @ 270/400 and I oc'ed to 320/480 so your MX should go up somewhat...depending on the ram quality and such.
