Anyone overclocked a Voodoo 3500? I just did it last night and got it running stable at 195 MHz. My 3Dmark2K give me a score of 3258. It was at 3112 before. Is that a big improvement? Anybody got it higher? Also i was wondering about cooling this thing. I guess I could buy a blue orb but i got a couple of old heat sink and fan from my K7 processor and a generic heat sink from my athlon 850. Can i use those some how? I don't want to overclock anymore until i get better cooling. It's just the generic heatsink on there now.

it would be "cool" to install a fan upper the GPU stock heatsink - i could say this is a general recommendation even if youre not planning to overclock it. the stock one is perhaps well effective (im not sure about this but a fan could surely improve its cooling better than the best heatsink). Installing heatsinks on the memory chips will not modify things too much (as it is most of the cases) - u can get here too many different opinions but the fact is the mem chips will never get high temperatures and dissipation is very low though.
