Default overclocking graphics cards

a simple program i have used to overclock graphics cards is PowerStrip. it can be used on virtually any graphics card including generic ones. a free evaluation copy can be downloaded. i thought id make this thread because id never heard anyone mention it here. it also has some useful tools for configuring your monitor precisely and you can set display profiles (various combinations of colour, resolution and clock speed) that start with different applications. for example you could set it to have your card underclocked so that it runs cool and stable for general running and then overclocks itself when you start a game.

warning: if you have a big name graphics card you should probably stick with the existing oc utilities. this is probably more useful for generic cards

edit: god looking back at this post it sounds like im spamming with an ad. im not this is just my opinion

I've used this program before and its quite good.

At the moment im using riviatuner for my nvidia card since it has more options than PowerStrip.

Another good program for ATI cards is ATI Tool which is great and easy to use.

well i have used powerstrip but i have to say that rivera tuner i found to be a sounder program with more options but just for the basics powerstrip is good. btw the nvidia drivers don't let you push your card to the limit. my drivers say i can't do anything past 580/1.9 but with rivera i can go 580/1.3 without to much trouble and thats with stock cooling. if you want basic go powerstrip if you want extra go rivera thats my advice
