    I've seen some posts where folks get it up to 166 or so with no cooling. What program are you using (or plan to use) to o/c the card?

    I have mine at 175, but have the cardcooler to blow down on it, as well as using Petersens o/c program...

    I am also using Petersons overclocking program. When I go into Display Properties
    I get a message that says: Class not registered. It was been doing this since I put in the Voodoo 3 and loaded their driver. Does anyone know why it does that. I am overclocking at 153 for now may try pushing it to 166. Thanks KJ

    If you push it too far do you fry the card or does it just shut down? (before I start messing about).

    If you go too far, your system will crash, but you might get artifacts before so you know that something isn't right. It won't burn immediately. Maybe if you go WAY too far.

    I've got my V3 2000 AGP at 166 with no additional cooling. At 175, I noticed some graphical glitches in UT.

    ive got mine at 166, but i put on a s7 fan i runs up to approx 180, but i think that is pushing it too far, it will do approx 166 without any additional cooling, try it and you know, it wont burn in a second the system hangs or some strange markings will show on your screen, that gives you a sign and still time, to put the frequency lower.

    goto www.voodooextreme.com\3fingers and download the v3 patch it runs from the display properties, very nice!!!!

    Hey AMD 300! If I remember right we were overclocking our V3's at the same time with help off of this forum!

    BTW, that link you provided isn't quite right. "/" instead of "\" for starters...

    I used that link to help a guy with a new post on this forum (asking for V3 o/c util), but it turns out voodoo extreme are overhauling their file system...

    Yes 3finger's 2 page has disapeared. This is where I found the OCing utility.

    I played it safe with my card. I ran it at 150 untill I added a 486 fan. Then I bumped it to 155. Then I added a case fan, memory heatsinks and a fan/hs on the back of the core. Now I run it at 166. I have tested it at 183Mhz with no artifact or lock-ups, but it did start to get a little hot under heavy play. I like it running at room temp (case fans push through a lot of air).

    Hey Todd, I've been meaning to ask you a question for a looong time.

    Why do you run your vid cards so slow? I mean, yeah, you o/c them, but both AMD 300 and I run our V3's @ 166 with no additional cooling, but you ran yours @ 155 with a fan?

    You seem really knowledgable and all, Todd, but why do you keep doing this? It drives me nuts!
