Default What is D.O.T?

Dynamic Overclocking Techonology.... i just bought a MSI 6600GT and it came with that.. should i use it? it seems like if i set it to *Commander* it gives me extra ten precent in 3D Mark 2003 or something... at least thats what it says at the back of the box.. use it or not?

if you are going to overclock a graphics card do it manually. look for nVIDIA overclocking programs

You can use it if you want but I dont trust dynamic overclocking software. Id use rivatuner or ATItool to overclock it manually and keep it there, changing clock settings constantly cant be good on its life.

eh, thats DOT stuff comes with the drivers you install from MSI. Go to Nvidia's website and install their drivers instead, then download coolbits and install that. Thats about the simplest over clocking there is.
