Ive got a XFX GeForce 8500GT; 256MB, 450MHz CoreClock, 400MHz Memory Clock. I need to over clock it a little (core clock to 509MHz, memory 480MHz),, i ve already tried using nTune, & works ok. GPU temperatures on default setting is about 65-70 C & after over clocking its about 70-75C. Im using default stock cooling systems, only fan air cooling.GPU fan is working @ max rpm i guess,gpu fan monitoring & intelligent controlling aint available, is it ok? im new to this overclocking stuff. please help.

My mainborad & processor are on default configurations, & its temp. are;

Cpu 45-55 C
Mainboard 45-50 C
ICH 70-75 C
MCH 65-70 C

Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 @ 2.33GHz 1333FSB
Intel DG33FB Mainboard; 1.2GB Kingston 667 RAM

The temps are fine for the the video card, the CPU/Mainboard are hot if that is idle, but if it is load temps, it is all fine. Is your GPU completely stable through an artifact scan at those temps? If you don't know, then try downloading ATI Tool(and yes, it works great with nVidia cards too, use it with my 7900GS) and run an artifact scan to see if you have a stable overclock.

Seriously, OC'ing a 8500 is 99% pointless. The gain will be absolutly not noticable.

@ Hatman;
Why do you say so?

---------------------

that CPU & Mainborad stats are on idling; but 100% load doesnt make a difference expet the fact 100% load for 5,6 Hours takes CPU to 55-60 C. thats all.

On abouve mentioned stats cpu rpm is about 900-1000RPM, & chasis outlet fan is about 1500-1700RPM.

Current GPU setting is Core 509MHZ; Memory 482MHz;
& i did artifact scan for about 10Minutes & GPU temperature reached 93 C max & stayed around 90-95C, but reported no errors. is that ok? over 90C means its bit hot; aint it? can boil water with few more C`s.. :D  .@ GPU Idle its about 65-75C.

hey, i ran Artifact test on default 450/400Mhz setting & after 10mins, it reached a max of 91 C & stayed around 85-90C...in about 10secs aftr aborting the test it cools down to about 65-70 C..

Ive changed Fan Configuration ;
Processor Fan 900-1000RPM
Chasis Rear Exhaust Outlet Fan: Processor Zone; @ Max RPM; Not monitored
Chasis Side Panel Bottom Intake Fan; 1600-2000RPM
Hard Drive Cooler Fan @ Max RPM Not Monitored ;
GPU Cooler Fan @ Max RPM; Not Monitored

i use riva tuner, and ive currently got an 8500 running at 690 MHZ (not sure about the memory clock im on a public comp :na:  ) with a stock soon to be overclocked e8400 and it runs almost flawlessly on high settings in gothic 3. tip, mount a fan on your gc (if it doesnt already have 1) it helps alot

"GPU fan is working at max I GUESS"?? use rivatuner or evga precision and increase fan speed.

TO HATMAN: i have a 7600GS that i overclocked 50% with no aftermarket coolers or fan speed modifications (adjusting the slider in rivatuner does nothing LOL) and the difference is most definitely noticeable! 15% increase in pcmarks... very noticeable in games.

i OC'd my 8500GT GPU at 760mhz and memory at 1650mhz and the temperature was at 65 C :bounce:  .good or bad?

had a bfg 8500 gt back in the day people will ride you about this card but mine was a great overclocker at least the core and shader clocks bumped core all the way up to 800 kept it and shader clocked linked memory clock seems to max out long before core only was able to increase memory to 521 before it started toartifact but was able to play gears farcry 2 and nba 2k9 on low setting temps maxed at 90 but i had this
card for over a year and never really missed out on playing any game the 90 c was a summertime temp with no ac so actually pretty good

it is may be bad us 1600 and 750 instead

Got my 8500GT Stable at 540MHz on the core and 497MHz on the memory with msi afterburner at idle on win7 desktop. Oh nearly forgot at 100% fan speed and at 1.32 volts.

My media pc:
Intel Celeron E1200@1.6GHz
MSI MS-7538 P35 Mobo
4GB's of DDR2 @ 333MHz Ram
