on my ti200 i am at 200 core and 430 mem (cant go higher, at 443, the next option, i get these stretched out textures sometimes i guess cause of the too high mem speed.. i have ram sinks and a fan blowin over the vid card i guess its just the limit then :(
can someone confirm that this happens to them too at too high mem speeds? then ill leave my card alone :)

edit:
o ya btw when can i tell my core reaches the limit? i get garbled textures?

i got my core to 298 stable, a 19% o/c (250 stock). probly do better if i had stupid active cooling, all i have is passive...

p.s. my mem was at 407, a 22% o/c (333 stock)

I have oc'ed my GF4 MX440 from 270/400 to 320/480 and if I go much higher on the mem, I get ripping textures and flickering. As for the core going to high, I get artifacting, (white dots and such).

hmm.. i guess my memory just is unlucky :( but core seems good :) is it possible to kill the vid card tho if i put it to the limit where it starts artifacting?

If you have good cooling, and it sounds like you do, then you shouldn't have a problem.

If I'm wrong please tell me! :D
