I have and OCZ 8800GTX limited edition (Stock speed :575/900 )and began to OC it , no additional cooler , all of these tests are in XP 64
First i downloaded RivaTuner v2.03 , then i set the fan speed annd ..... then i began to OC , 10mhz increase in every step , first i tried :
1_590/910, it was stable
2_600/920 , again stable
6_i tried 640 for CoreClock , but it wasnt stable , so 630 is the last for core clock ,so : 630/960
lol i became tired and tried this :
9_ 630/1080 Stable , (didnt try more yet , but i think i shall keep that )
thats faster than a 8800ULTRA , , i am pretty happy with it its really very nice , i ran 3DMARK06 (with CPU tests ) and the max temp was 69 , and here is the result of 3dmark06 : 10379 (cpu @ stock) so what do u think ?
Sounds like a nice OC. Although I have no experience with Nvidia cards, your 3DMark06 score seems a tad low IMO. Are you running your 3DMark at standard settings? My rig (in my sig) using a 2.66 CPU OC (from 2.13) and my HD2900XT @ 833/888 in Vista Home scores 10837. Then again, I believe the HD2900XT does very well in 3Dmark. ANyhoo, looks good man.
thanx guys , well it was late when i posted it , it was about 11:05 PM in iran so i had to go to sleep , by the way i think my result is fine , as i said my cpu is @ stock , because some one with E6600 @ 3.4 and a 8800GTS @ 600/2000 got 10350 and mine is even higher than that
Rivatuner is definetley the way to go. I have a XFX 320mb 8800gts clocked at 650 core x 2030 mem idle 53c with a e6400 and benched 11249 in 3D Mark 06, was down around 10000 before using rivatuner so i would expect good results from the 8800gtx although i do think you should be about 1500 more than you have benched, although i know nothing of the 64 bit windows you are using so may be its only driver related. Either way you will have no problems showing games who the boss is.
