I currently have an eVGA GeForce 6800GS AGP 256MB card (core clock 350Mhz), and nVidia Control Panel thing reports my temps at GPU core 57C and Ambient 37C. I assume those are safe values. It has 4 pipelines that are unlockable, but they aren't unlocked on it, I figured I'd try that later. I read the ForceWare tweakguide @ tweakguides.com, but it mentioned three or four different tweaks and alternate applications I could install for tweaking, and that's a lot to manage.
How far would you guys (knowing much more than me) think I could overclock this card safely (and with what program), with and without the 4 extra pipelines.
Oh, and here
is a page with a lot of information about my card, in case it helps.
Earlier, I ran 3dMark06 and got a score of 2204 or so. Just now, I unlocked my pipelines, rebooted, and ran 3dMark06 again and got 2522 without artifacting, so I guess my unlock went ok. I'm still looking to overclock it a bit. Any help?
