I've got a retail 128MB Radeon8500LE and I had it clocked at 300/300 with stock cooling and no mods. I just slapped on a Crystal ORB and some tweakmonster BGA ramsinks, bumped the voltage on the core up from like 1.65 to 1.9v and the mem from 2.85 to 3.2v i can get the core up to 3.15, but using rage3d tweak, and the overclock option the max i can set my memory is 300..i want to put it at 315, how do i increase the range here? any help would be appreciated. thanks guys.

Just go to the rage3d forums and check in the tweaks section (i think) They explain how to change the max overclocking frequencies.

Sapphire 8500LE 128 mb

I just ordered a Sapphire ATI 8500 LE 128 mb. Are the latest drivers the best for windows xp the 6-13-10 6193. I also already downloaded the R3D Tweak 3.6. I am wondering how much of a performance increase everyone has got by overclocking. Such as how many points it raised 3D Mark scores from standard to overclocked. Dont know much about ATI cards. First one, have been dedicated to NVIDIA. Guess I'll find out the difference now.Good or bad


My System
Athlon Xp 2000 running at 1750
Shuttle AK32L
256 DDR 2100
Windows XP Pro
GeForce 4 mx 440 (until my 8500 LE 128 comes in)
Maxtor 60 gig 7200
