    Hello y'all.
    Gotta a question. At what speed (in nano-seconds) does the memory on an GeForce II MX-400 64Mb SD-RAM run at? Thanks! :D

    i could only reccomend looking at tomshardware, or at the nvida web page.

    i have a similar card, and can only tell you the clock frequencies.

    it all depends on what speed of memory your manufacturer decided to put on that particular card. the only real way to find out is look on the memory chips, themselves. here is an example:

    http://www.overclockersonline.com/images/articles/aopen/gf4mx/large/420mem.jpg

    the "...-6" tells us those memory chips are rated at 6 nanoseconds (ns). on an sdram card like yours, this would mean 166mhz (1000/6=166.66). check your card to see what speed memory you have and you will be able to bump the memory speed up accordingly with no problem.

    :eek: PWOAR! That's more info then what I expected to get! :D
    Thanks for all ya help people!
    BTW, taurus, I got the "-6" on the end of my chips, which suggest that my ram chips should be running at a default of 166Mhz. But when I use overclocking programs such as NVMax and Geforce Tweaking Utility, my ram chips run at a default of 334Mhz. Any ideas why? (And I pretty sure I don't have DDR)

    hmm, i dunno. i think the mx 200 has 64-bit ddr (equal to 128-bit sd). maybe yours is like that? i'm not sure... but just treat the 333mhz like 166mhz x2.

    yeh desimatrix007, you can do 200/183 easy!
    I had mine on 240/190 once, and it worked like a breeze!
    Stable and everthing, ran 3dmark 2001, and didn't blow up! :D

    Are you guys kidding me? I was able to run my geforce2 mx 400 at 250Mhz core and 255Mhz memory. My card though was made by gainward with 4.8ns memory access time. And gainward is really known for the overclockablity of its video cards.

    Nothing special, I'm using the card's default fan/heatskin combo that came with it! :D
