I have the above chipset, and I want to overclock it before I put it into a machine I am giving away.
I just want to check what the maximum overclock settings would be for it.
From what I read online, some releases of the 9600 GSO have
core clocked at 600Mhz while mine is clocked at 550Mhz,
Memory clocked to over 1000Mhz (I think) while mine is clocked to 800Mhz, and
Shaders clocked to 1600Mhz while mine is at 1375Mhz.
What I am wondering:
Do these lower factory setting values mean that I would have a lower overclock potential than the same chipset released by different manufacturers?
Also there is a tool in an updated nVidia driver that allows me to overclock there. Should I use the other software mentioned in this forum or is this updated driver sufficient?
