Default X800XL wanna go higher!

hi all,

I've got an X800XL and its been performing nicely for me so far. With ATi Tray tools I have got it to be 439/1104. But for some reason it has been flowing in my mind that I can increase the voltage by using ATi Tools. I don't know why maybe I had read it somewhere. Can someone please confirm this

As for those of you who have this card you probably know that overclocking this isn't too thrilling. To get a significant clock(Im talking about 530-600 core and around 630 memory, I have heard you have to voltmod it or increase its voltage. I don't want to mod it just yet so maybe, im hoping theres a software that does this virtually.

It seems the beta ati tools only has voltage support for the x1*** series cards, non other. Tried that with my x800 gto and even my 7900gs, no support for nvidia as well.

2x 750GB

What's the GPU temp? The ambient temp doesn't really matter.

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

gpu temp is prob higher

but our cards are lacking not because of heat but because of their architecture which is the 0.11 micron core which needs less volts to run. imo.

if temp was the prob i would have cranked it up to 600 + with dry ice on top lol.

but imo there is only a limit to how much OC you can do on specific volatages.

also i bet you can easily increase you memory clock.

try it out, i was stuck at the 510 range for a bit then for some reason it let me go to 552.

my gpu temp is around 41 idle with case closed and about 37 with case open. the environment temperature is a bit lower on both.
