Default 6800xt AGP OVERCLOCK!

Despite having a crap mobo wich i will upgrade to a asus mobo later i just recently purchased a 6800xt agp card and was wanting to overclock it as i heard u can, i am running on an old agp system that i wanted to extend the life out of.

My question is this, is it okay for me to overclock this thing without anything but a stock air cooler that comes on it? im not talking huge overclocking but enough to unlock soem more pipelines and take the gpu core a bit higher. I dont no exaclty how to do this as far as gpu overclocking goes. Does anyone have good details or a link to send me in the right direction?

Ive overclocked before with processors is it the same thing with gpu's?

You might not be able to unlock the pipe's,Not too many people have had luck with them,Lot's are just damaged GT's or GS's that had screwed pipe's so they will just lock them and sell them as lower branded card's,But if you want to give it a shot check this out http://firingsquad.com/hardware/gefo...king/page2.asp
