I use ATI tool. Default core is 325 and mem is 310. On air cooling I am overclocking it to 366/331. I think it's unfair to push it beyond that. My fans are screaming bloody murder! Is that a good oc? Lastnight I left the find max core one! would you believe it?! but I think it has a failsafe (that can be overidden) to stop there. I can run BF2 at nearly max settings fine. Ofcourse, I don't have AA on.

lol

I'd forgotten how slow graphics memory used to be only two years ago! I have sytem RAM that's faster!

it has ram sinks. I could push it farther, BUT, here's the big "BUT", since it is an All In Wonder card, I have hardly any good aftermarket fans I can use with it. The stock fan on the 9700 pro is kinda crappy. It's those RAM heat sinks which have gotten me this far, but that graphics card could OC even better if I could use some of those after market cooling fan/heat pipe solutions. I won't get another AIW card because of this.

LOL, d00d, newer All-In-Wonder cards support nearly any cooler you'd like! You just happened to get one with an oversized tuner, the new tuners are tiny!

that's good news. But I still won't buy an AIW card because I never liked watching TV on my computer nor taping it on my computer. Sure, I watched Cinemax movies and made my own montage of naked chicks, but that got old after a while . . . .esp. when the goal of the card was to get Hi8 family videos into the computer to make DVD's. Well, once I upgrade my system (crosses fingers on home equity loan) I will use the current one just to get the rest of the tapes onto the computer for later editing.

My RAM might be able to go higher, but I can nearly fry eggs on the aftermarket heatsinks I put on them. If pushing that RAM higher increases that heat then I'm in trouble.
