A topic that continuously pops up, I know.
I have been trying to overclock my 9700PRO and here is what i have come up with thus far:
I cant seem to get the memory to go any higher. If I do, I get some minor artifacting. I can get the core pretty damn high though for stock cooling. I've had it at 366 so far with stock cooling and have not tried higher. I'm willing to bet it will go pretty high. Once I get better cooling it willl be awesome.
Anyway, everyone seems to be having a little better luck with their memory speeds than me. Is there anything that I can do to get the memory to overclock higher? I was thinking of putting some good RAMSinks on it to help a bit. Can anyone suggest some good cooling and heatsinks to put on the memmory?
Also, I noticed a 500 point gain in 3DMark 01' from doing this overclock on the vid card. Not too bad, I guess....I just thought it would go higher than that. You guys think that this is about right? I went from 15,313 to 15,864.
Thanks for the help and any suggestions.
I have not done ANYTHING to this card yet, it's completely stock. so anything that will help the cooling will be greatly appreciated! Im open to all suggestions.
