Has anyone been able to overclock their card to meet equivalent
speed to a Utra Leadtek Geforce 2 with no problems such as atrifacts on the screen when playing games. I am thinking about buying either a GTS,PRO and i am just wondering since the speed is 200mhz for the GTS pro , is it possible to overclock these cards higher to say 250mhz core speed? I had a few things in mind like buying some artic silver and then overclocking it.
THanks

I will be attempting my first geforce 2 overclock tonight. I think the only limitations on the card is the memory bandwidth, which (I believe) for the GTS is 350mhz. With some additional cooling the geforce MX cards can do 200-220 mhz without breaking a sweat, I can't say for the GTS -- but apparently they use DDR memory with is much more overclock friendly.

also be sure that it comes with the good stock hsf. The cheaper models (non-pro) come with a shotty hsf combo that will limit your overclocking results.

Well the PRo GTS with 5.5ns 64meg DDR runs at 200/366mhz core. And the ultra run at 250/460 core 64meg DDR 4ns ram.
So you think its possible to achieve the same speed or faster than a ultra card that run 275 with a geforce mx card with 64meg 6ns sdram

What is your proccesor speed?
And what program do you use to overclock the video card
also you get no artifacts on the screen at all?

My Leadtek GeForce2 Ultra runs awesome @ 300/500 with stock HSF!

I thought 500 Mhz was normal for 4ns DDR. Isn't the formula 1000/memory speed * 2 (if DDR). So, 1000/4=250 * 2 = 500.

To summarize:
4.0ns = 500 Mhz DDR
4.5ns = 445 Mhz DDR
5.0ns = 400 Mhz DDR
5.5ns = 366 Mhz DDR
6.0ns = 333 Mhz DDR

Is this the correct calculation?

I recently got a Leadtek Geforce pro to replace my problomatic Radeon 64.

As far as O/c it I am going to try soon, but one of the easiest ways to improve the cooling is to add a Sunon 40 millimeter X 20 Mill. fan to the ducted air system. I did this and the temps shot down 12-15*f

Just a tip.....

The fan Im talking about is listed below found at Nerdsbyte

Does anyone know if it is possible that if you were to install a high performance fan on top of the fan already installed on the leadtech ultra would that improve cool more so you could overclock to a higher cache MHZ

The problem with installing one fan on to of the other is getting the fans to work togeather and infact the additional fan may disrupt airflow, this action i would not advice and would suggest just replacing the fan with a more powerfull option
