Cool Bits is another program for overclocking nVidia cards.

using Rivatuner:

then in the new window, check "enable driver-level hardware overclocking"

move up the sliders to increase speeds, test, then apply.
then test it in a game or benchmarking program
if it works fine, overclock some more.
once it starts to "artifact" (you'll know what I mean when it happens) then move the speeds down a bit.
check "apply overclocking at Windows startup"

ok, i have a problem OC'ing my Nvidia GeForce 6200 [GV-N62256D]
it doesnt matter if i use V-Tuner, Cool Bits or Riva Tuner, even if i OC by 2Mhz, the computer freezes for short periods of time..
could it be the drivers?
