Question Overclocked 6600GT


Is this a good overclock for a PCI-E Geforce 6600GT ?

Core = 567MHz
Mem = 1.22GHz

My load temp at these settings is 70 degress celcius and my idle temp is 53 degress celcius.

yea but your 7900 has 24 pipe lines. which inturn means your getting 13,200 fill rate persecond.. and he is getting 4,560 fill rate per second. but your overclock is average for a 6600gt.. and watch the heat! them cards get hott

As long as you arnt getting artifacts keep pushing it until you do, then back down a bit. Also make sure you have good cooling though, sometimes artifacts dont happen until about 5 loops through 3dmark 05.
A+ certified.
