    Got my Voodoo-2 2000 PCI to 183MHz !!!!!!!!

    My voodoo-3 2000 pci is happly running
    at 183mhz. I have played Nascar Heat, Rainbow Six covert ops, and Hitman demo,
    all with no crashes. What is funny though
    is when I benchmark the card under Nascar heat, nomatter what speed or res the card is running at, I always get 22.1fps
    Next Im going for 200MHz. If the card goes
    I lost a card, but at least it won't be a 350$ video card I lost.

    I don't think it'll go that high. I have a SS7 HS/fan on the GPU, and I have cut apart a 1" tall PII HS and put one on each memory modle. I have a hole in the bottom of my case with a fan mounted over it. The fan is supporting the weight and cooling memory heatsinks. I can't get it a single MHz over 185 stably. I can run windows at 195, but what good is that? I can do everything at 185 though.

    Overclocking is like supercharging. It's not necessary, but it sure is fun to have the fastest in town!!

    Don't worry about losing your card, it won't happen. Have you removed the heatsink yet or just added a fan? They are glued on there for horrible thermal transfer so if you can get it off and put it back on with a nice thin coat of thermal paste, maybe some lapping, that should do ya nicely be careful tho... i killed my voodoo5 removing sinks

    Yeah... bout' the only thing you wouldn't want to overclock, would be your clock...
    Unless you just want to be early all the time..

    Bah,
    only 183Mhz, I got mine to 190 in games (although it did take a hefty bit of cooling). The main bar on high Mhz on the 2000 is the RAM type, I was lucky enough to have some pretty decent RAM.
    Still, 183Mhz isn't a bad OC, well done
