Amd 9500GT quadcore + geforce 8500gt

hi there i need help overclocking my computer and graphic card i did it in early days but im not sure how to do it now
both got stock cooler and im not planning on buying new hardware for this computer
hope it will last another year and then ill buy new computer

this is what need be overclocked and info supplyd hope its all you need

AMD phenom 9500gt 2,2ghz quadcore, 32bits , Vista service pack2
3gb RAM 2xsamsung 512mb pc2-5300 333mhz V1.80
and 2xqimonda 1024mb pc2-5300 333mhz V1.80

chipset: nvidia mcp61 a3
soutbridge: nvidia mcp61 a2
lpcio: fintek F8000

bios : pheonix technologys, LTD v5.05 DATE: 1-april-2008

graphic interface 16x link with & max

and i need grapich card overclocked

nvidia geforce 8500GT
dx10 support
kern klok 475mhz
shader klok 950mhz
512mb ddr2

hope i didnt miss any info
thnx in advance for replys

i could also use some info on what tools to use on quadcore
changing multiplier and voltage and stuff
stability test and max test
watching temperature?
and do i need to know anything more?

  1. I wish I could help you out man but I don't know a whole lot about that specific CPU and graphics card.

    For overclocking my graphics, I normally use MSI Afterburner. It doesn't allow upping the voltage most of the time, but you can adjust the core clock and memory clock. Typically with MSI Afterburner you can adjust it to the MAX and your GPU will be fine. I wouldn't worry too much about overclocking the graphics memory though. It doesn't help performance really at all and sometimes causes stability issues. So definitely try that. It'll probably work.

    Another program for Nvidia cards is Nvidia Inspector. Sometimes that'll allow you to overclock. You can also try EVGA's program if you have an EVGA version of a Nvidia card it works GREAT. It also works if it's not an EVGA version sometimes.

    As for the CPU. I don't know if that CPU requires a BCLK increase or a Multiplier increase. On my computer I just have to adjust the multiplier and the Vcore voltage. However, on yours you may have to adjust the BCLK and the Vcore voltage. Or a little of both. I would first try to search online for what to adjust on that specific CPU. Then go from there. Typically you can overclock a little without having to adjust the voltage at all. So if you don't want to do any research I would say just adjust the multiplier by .2-.3Ghz. If stock it's 20, then go up to 22 and see if your PC will boot. If it doesn't then bump up your Vcore voltage a little. If your Vcore is normally 1.15, go up to 1.2. If that doesn't work then go back to stock. Then try to adjust your BCLK by 2-3. If it's 100 stock. Go to 102 or 103 and see if it'll boot. If that doesn't work try upping your voltage a little. If nothing will get you to boot into Windows then you'll have to do some research.

    Well, I hope this helps you out a little. I see no one here's answered your question so I figured I would try and give you the best answer I could come up with. That's a shame too because I know someone here knows a lot more about your PC than I do.
