its supposed to be 'safe auto-overclock'
thats ********, it automatically saves the settings to your drivers and you gotta remove them completely=/
pain in the *** to say the least
oh and by the way-
overclocking your GPU is fine if u want that max benchmark score or whatever,
but in real gaming its only going to make a 2-3% difference (at best) with a modest overclock
u REALLY gotta push them to get more power out of them, and you have to have excellent cooling
an example is my buddies 8800gts, he got a waterblock and everything just so he could get better framerates in crysis
on average it was a 3-8fps difference
.. not worth it IMHO, unless your card is the system bottleneck and u just want to squeeze those extra 3fps out for shts and giggles
ive been hearing that too but i got to at least give it a try.
i am ****ed right now that i am not getting a consistent rate of frame rate in fallout 3 right now. with everything set up high, the game has occasional spikes which is really ****ing me off.
but i hear the MSI ATI 4850 series has a pretty good cooler so i am thinking maybe it will be a bit better then 3 fps? we will see
