Default OCing the 8800GTS 512 (G92)

Ok so I have a MSI 8800GTS 512 (G92) and it currently runs at about 52-54 idle and 65 max on Load

Would it be possible for me to OC this at all w/ the stock cooling or would it be too dangerous? And would I get a noticeable increase from it?

I have also considered getting an HR-03 VGA cooler for it to OC it more. Would it be worth getting or would I not notice an increase or anything at all?


anyone had any experience ocing this card?

You have a little headroom to overclock, but the temps would get higher with that stock cooler.

I'd say the HR-03 is worth it, if you're looking to overclock it. Definitely lowers the temperatures.

I think it's much more noticeable in benchmarks, than in frames. I could be wrong.

Your right about the benching over FPS big, atleast in my case with my stinky 320mb G80

However... try overclocking now before you invest a cooler, sometimes your card can't actually overclock anymore (even if temperatures are fine) without a volt mod which may or may not be something your willing to do

dl ATITool (if it supports the gts g92) and just raise the clock speed by 5-15mhz , then cehck max temp and check for artifacts (3d view) then raise the memory by 5-15 mhz and repeat the process

you can sacrifice some memory speed for some higher clock speeds, but its yoru choice

As far as I know, ATI Tool does not support the latest Nvidia cards. Most use Rivatuner for these cards.

why would it drop your fps? you will see a slight increase, but probably 10 at the most? maybe 20 if you get really far?
