INNO3D 7600GS memory frequency question... underclocked?

Why is Inno3d 7600GS' (256mb ddr2, 128-bit) stock memory clocked only 333mhz?
It's effective memory is 666mhz(333 x 2)
as seen on the image below






I checked inno3d's site and it says that their 7600GS are really clocked at

those memory frequencies..

BUT from what I've been hearing, the supposed frequency of a 7600GS should be

400 mhz, which should give an effective clock of 800mhz overall..

Also, I encountered a website who's 7600GS' stock memory frequency is 400mhz..




And just recently, I emailed Inno3d's tech support.. fortunately, they replied

for like a week after. They said that their previous 7600GS cards were at 800mhz

but they lowered it to 667 for some reason.. which goes back to my original

question- Why?

anyway I'm more concerned of its memory bandwidth.. the higher the frequencies,

the higher the bandwidth right?
But mine is currently @ 10.4 GB/s (as shown on the first pic) only, when the

real bandwidth according to Nvidia should be 12.4 GB/s



Thus, can it be concluded that Inno3d's 7600gs cards are underclocked in terms

of memory frequencies? If so, is it safe to "overclock" it to its normal

frequencies (from 333mhz to 400mhz)?





A little enlightenment would be help me here.. ty=)

Try overclocking the card. See if it is stable at 400 MHZ.

can i overclock this using stock fan?
btw, my temps read at 51C when idle and 59C when full load.. but thats for my GPU..

I wonder if there's a program that can read the temp of the whole card.. hehe

Yeap you can overclock safely becouse this chip has max temp of 120C mine 7600 GS silent version worked with 100 degrees while playing fear with absolutely no artifacts.

BTW Asus did the same thing with their version of 7600GS with active cooling, its memory clock is 250MHZ(500 effective) The interesting part is that Asus 7600GS Silent has ddr 400(800) mhz clock speed and when i bought it it was even cheaper than active cooled by 11$ :) .

@RuFuS

your can go up to 100C?? wow.

Is your vc ASUS?
But im only going to overclock my memory.. im presuming it will not affect my GPU's temps.. thats why I want to know if there are programs that monitor the whole board of the video card itself, or better, the RAM modules specifically..

I dunno if it can reach up to 400mhZ from 333mhZ

Has anyone tried this yet? overclock Inno3D's memory from 333 to 400?

I have my 7600 inno3d runs 530/410 from stock 400/333 no problems at all
