    Can you recommend the BEST overclocking and tweaking utility for a LEADTEK WINFAST GEFORCE 2 Ti?

    Also whats the default clock speed setting on a GF 2 Ti and what can I overclock it to?

    The GFX card itself has a fan and heatsink on it (it came with it).

    Thx for any help :)

    go to this link
    it will dload the program it is off of xp-erience.org

    http://www.xp-erience.org/download.php?op=getit&lid=206

    then go into the properties (from desktop)>settings>advanced>GeForce Ti>additional properties>clock frequencies
    change them about 5 at a time...(higher)...start with the memory first...restart and test the settings using 3d mark 2k1 or somethin of that sort at

    www.madonion.com

    keep trying till u see the picture coming messed up...and the go down from there in increments of 1

    Just move both up a little bit, bench it.... if it runs smooth w/ no glitches or artifacts..... move it up..... bench it.... if it runs smooth w/ no glitches or artifacts .... move it up .... ad nauseum. :)

    If it glitches, locks or shows artifacts, move it down a notch, and bench again....

    Every (EVERY!) card is different and due to quality control some can handle higher speeds than others.... there is no perscription for overclocking.

    Find YOUR sweet spot....

    PS It'll glitch or lockup long before it fries.

    Coolbits as shown in the previous thread works well, but offers a finite range of adjustment. www.entechtaiwan.com has Powerstrip which offers a wider range of adjustment. I use coolbits and run my gf3 ti 200 at 220/500. What you can run the card at varies so much, that trial and error is the only way. Me and my friend bought same card side by side and mine runs faster. Luck of the batch so buy 6 test each, and return 5...hehehehe

    Is the cooling of the GFX card sufficient for stable overclocking i.e it has the stock fan and heatsink it came with.

    Yes the stock HSF is fine for average o'cing of a vid card. Should have front case and rear case fan below power supply to maintain good airflow. The quiet 3000 rpm jobs are fine.

    look at the memory chips on your video card. they'll have a series of letters/numbers on them... and the last couple pof these is the speed of the memory in nanoseconds (ns).

    for a gf2 ti, i'd imagine they'd be about 4ns, so you should see something like DFR5432I53-4 or -4.5 or something...

    take the number 2000... divide it by the speed (ns number) and you'll get the speed in mhz you can clock the memory to safely.

    for instance, 4ns memory will let you go to 500mhz (2000/4=500). some memory can go higher than it's designed, so try to slowly push them higher.

    I got Leadtek Winfast GF2 Ti 64MB 4ns DDR (VX Model). Haven't u got Winfox? I use that, it came with my Ti... it's primo.

    Defaults for mine are 225/400, I'd guess your are close if not the same
    Runs sweet as on 250/505 on standard cooling, no artifacts. Then again I have my agp voltage at 1.7. :D

    Use this to test for artifacts: http://www.majorgeeks.com/getfile.php?file=201&site=2

    I have a Gainward GF2 Ti, I am using the EXPERTool to OC to 251/451, those are the enhanced mode settings. The safe mode are 250/400
