ok im planning on overclocking my 9400GT. it idles at around 35C-40C. and under load goes to around 55C-60C. is that cool enough to overclock?

ok next what is the best way to overclock it? i have Amd Overdrive and MSI Dual core Center. can i overclock with either of those? or is there some other program?


any help would be appreciated

Overclocking a 9400GT is like putting whipped cream on poop, i'm not trying to be a jerk here but the 9400 GT is not a gaming video card in a matter of speaking. It can handle some games at lower settings and such but since it is already not powerful, overclocking it would only yield about an average of a 3% gain in games.

Is it worth the prospect of burning out the video card for a 3% gain?

Well, just to let you know, i learned this the hard way, i overclocked my GeForce 8600 and it did not provide much of an increase in performance and i ended up frying it...

I bought it for $30.00 and kinda did this on purpose to see how far it could be pushed compared to what kind of increase in performance i could get...
