I recently purchased an XFX 9800GT and I installed the accelero Twin Turbo. I downloaded eVGA precision to overclock, however I can't seem to get the memory higher than 930. I am able to bring the core linked with the shaders to around 680/1700. Anytime I load a game like WoW or Crysis it jsut freezes but this only happens when the memory is overclocked. It's the 65nm G92 chip so I'm not sure if that would cause a dramatic change in overclocking potential.
Well this sucks... I read reviews on various sites on the card and even specifically on the XFX branded card and thier overclocking results were on par with other manufacturers. I've been messasging XFX's online support but it takes them 2 weeks to respond. I had the same issue as you zip so I thought an aftermarket cooler would fix it. However the temps are barely better than my friends eVGA 9800gt with the stock cooler. Hopefully I can RMA this piece of garbage.
i resentley hade just one xfx 9800 gt witch i overclocked all the time with my card i can run crysis at max resalution of 1680*1050 at 750/1822/1062 worked perfect you might want to get a new vga cooler a customer of mine hade the same problem as u r right now i got him at tigerdirect a blue ultra performance vga cooler and it made a world of diffrence i was able to overclock his to 760/1900/1072 mind he onley hade a 15 inch monitor i would deffenitley think about gitting a new cooler im running 2 xfx 9800gt in sli and there water cooled i have mine at 755/1890/1132 amd they are great cards for a budget buy if u need n e help email me at email@example.com
I'm having a similar problem. I tried to turn up the memory clock and all of a sudden I started getting these funky red squiggly lines on my screen. I quickly reset the card back to it's defaults, and they went away. I have an eVGA 9800 GT Superclocked, but I read that people were getting much higher clock speeds with the stock cooler. Is it just the 9800 GT`s or what.
i have a Gigabyte 9800gt 1gb and i have been able to get 800/1750/1000 with little to no work and it runs fun temps dont get above 75 (came with a zalman cooler but has no ramsinks) and i dont get any artifacts or problems in game.
Well that stinks I can't get mine on the mem with out the driver crashing max out at 1025 but unstable. Even re flashed the card with higher volts. 1.05 stock now its at 1.1v. Wants new card now perhaps a cheap 260 or a 5870.
