I'm using Hercules drivers for my STB Velocity 4400! The latest drivers have an overclocking feature for the memory and core.
I have tried NVidia's reference drivers and
STB's latest drivers and the Hercules drivers
work best...plus no more Powerstrip [that I needed to OC with]. Just ran 3D Mark99 on my
system [AMD 400 @ 4.5X100/128mb RAM] and
got a 3D mark of 1940. I'll try a little more
OC now and see what it takes to freeze it up
what tpye of system are you running your STB 4400 on.....the reason i ask i'm in the market for a video card and an accelerator card. i read some reviews about the problems w/this card as far as overclocking and the heat sink not funtioning properly. Have you taken steps to prevent these problems ? and do you recommend a 4400....i would be running it on a 350mhz pii w/an AsusP2 b motherboard........thank you for your time!!!!
I like the 4400...but I use 2 extra fans in the case blowing on the video cards [1 case fan and 1 Radio Shack 273-260 blower] because I also OC the Voodoo2 with "Voodoo2
overclock" But the fact is there are better cards for OC'ing. The Asus V3400 TNT and the
Hercules Dynamite TNT to be specific.Go over to Tom's Hardware...
[http://www.tomshardware.com] and check out
his Jan 5th TNT card test. Looks like the Asus and the Hercules are clear cut winners.
But I'm happy with the 4400's video quality
and I got it running 1974 3DMark99 now.
BUT if I had to do it over again [and I probably will]...
Forgot sys details...
FIC 503+ 1.2/je1533BIOS/AMD K6-2 400mhz OC'd
to 450[4.5X100]@2.3V. It runs 500mhz [5X100]
and 4X112 too @2.4V but I backed it down...it is fast enough @450 for me. Want to keep it alive until K6-3's come out. GlobalWin fan and heatsink. Mushkin SamsungGH 128mb PC100 Cas2 SDRAM.
Quantum EX 6.4 & 3.2 gig HD's.32X CD Rom and LS-120.PCI 128 soundcard and ModemBlaster

HOwdy man, i was wondering, u said u used the herculese drivers to
use the hercumeter over clocking feature, and that u used the Nvidia
reference drivers. But when i installed the NVidia drivers, i lost the
hercumeter. Did u mean that herculese used the the nvidia reference
drivers or did u mean u installed them manually? if so how?
thanx, i got a CL tnt. werks awesome with tha herculese!
Terry> thanx for the info, i have the v4400 on my celery464a and it made quite a difference in the v4400's performance using the Hercules drivers. I was able to OC my card to 105 core/115 memory with no probs. or lockups. I do have one of those Radio Shack "squirrel cage" fans blowing across TnT's heatsink.
I bought a generic TNT. I downloaded the powerstrip software from www.entech.tw.com and I'm quite happy with it. I took the heatsink and fan from my old Pentium 200 setup and applied thermal compund to schtik the sink to the tnt chip. I also had to use rubberbands to hold it onto the board (hack). I'm still tweaking it, but it seems pretty cool. I'll let y'all know how much I am able to OC the core & mem clock.
