    GeForce owner click here

    I'm curious to know how far have you overclocked your GeForce. Please list your card and engine/clock speed.

    Hmmm, Siamese what's your processor speed, motherboard and memory?

    Thanks for your reply guys and gals. I'm currently doing a survey to find out how far all the GeForce can OC. I currently have an Asus V6800 DDR and my result are 150/350 rock stable. I think I can go a little higher on the core but the Asus Tweak utility max at 150. I'm very impress with the GeForce's. Kudos to Nvidia.

    Does overclocking a GeForce make much difference? I heard when they first came out that there was only about 2-3fps difference. What speed improvements are you all noticing?

    Thanks

    Ok here I come as usual to spoil the party

    I'm very unimpressed with the GeForce's. Nega Kudos to Nvidia.... it's Still Beta ......... ( I actually quite like it now but don't tell anyone )

    Overclocking the Geforce brings Smallish gains, but there is a link between core & memory speed. have a look here:- http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1216

    I've copied and pasted the below info from an earlier posting of mine, fingers are too tired to edit.......

    "Well I have the CLAP , and I got that to 82C once!, I think 60C is pretty normal, but it depends where you measure the temp.
    I have a tower case and measure the temp from the top of the card on the PCB the otherside of the GPU. I tried various heatsink and fan combos including a 120mm fan on it, no kidding.

    None of this really help alot as 40C was just about as low as it would go in non gaming use, I also have good case cooling (22C to 24C).

    I finally solved it with an ICE 71 peltier @ 7v on an Alpha 3125 heatsink, now running at 18C to 24C in most situations, though it will go up to 32C with FSSAA enabled. This is total overkill I know, and I only tried it as I had the peltier and alpha sitting here. I will be water cooling it soon as I'd really like some PCI slots back

    Motherboard: Abit BF6
    Front Side Bus: 140Mhz
    Processor: PIII Coppermine
    Speed: 700Mhz
    Overclocked to: 988Mhz
    Videocard: CLAP o/c'd 165/365
    GeForce Temperature: (Gaming) normally 24C (32 peak)
    GeForce Temperature: (Non-Gaming) around 18C

    Before cooling (standard card)

    GeForce Temperature: (Gaming) 68C, max 82C
    GeForce Temperature: (Non-Gaming)around 56C"

    Core will go to 185 but flakes out within 20mins of Q3.

    Ok can I have the finished product now the Geforce 2 please????????????

    OK I pushed a little. My 3D Prophet DDR-DVI is now running at 150/350. No problems, just a little faster.

    OK, now I pushed my 3D Prophet DDR-DVI to 165/350. No problems, just faster. But it looks like that's the limit. 165 MHz is the highest GPU setting available, and if I go higher than 350 on the memory clock, it gets slower. The 3DMark2000 score is up to 4826. Since it was scoring 4480 at the default 120/300, I've gotten a little under a 10% performance boost.

    Just got an Elsa Erazor X (SDR) yesterday and have been running it @ 150/180 right out of the box. No probs in 3DMark or UT yet. BTW - The graphics and speed are awesome on the SDR! I can't even imagine what the DDR would be like!

    OC'ing the Geforce really makes a difference in Q3A, and 3dmark 2000, but not at all in UT, which basically is a software game, even in D3D!

    3dmark 2000:

    120/300 : ~4600
    150/330 : ~5100

    Athlon 700 system, not OC

    Dave_B,

    What tweaking utility are you using? I need to find a new one cause my Asus utility max out at 150 core and I think it can go a little higher. Let me know where I can get an OC utility for the GeForce that can go higher than 150 core. Thanks.
