Anyone tried to overclock an XFX 9600GT from stock 650mhz core and 900mhz memory to the max ? I got up to 715mhz core and 1015mhz mem but never tried to go higher cause this is the only card I got for the next years on...
OC will differ from vidcard to vidcard, as with cpu, ram, etc. If you're wondering what is the highest OC ever achieved on a 9600GT, I bet it's 800MHz+ on core, speeds like that. They usually have WC and did a V-mod of some sort to get higher speeds.
I have had my Gigabyte 9600GT at 800mhz core, memory at 1,015mhz (2,030mhz effective), and shader clock at 1825mhz. 3DMark06 score of 12,726 with my E8500 overclocked to 3.8GHz. However, I hit 12,833 in 3DMark06 with my processor overclocked to 4.01GHz and my 9600GT at 785/1,020/1825. No volt-mod required, just got a good card...3DMark06 score with processor and graphic card at stock speeds is 10,799. The card is overclocked 24/7 at 750/1000/1750, and temps rarely exceed 56C while gaming. Idle is around 38C. Everything is air-cooled...
I also have an XFX 9600GT,
at stock its 650/1625/900 (core clock/shader/memory)
I overclocked using MSI afterburner to 755/1975/960. I used Unigine heaven to test the settings, at stock I was getting 42, overclocked i am getting 50.4 fps ~20% increase in performance
Unigine settings: dx10 medium 0AA 0AF 800x600
