i attached coolbits. just use that for driver-based overclocking. no reason to use anything else, imo.

start by moving the "core clock frequency" up by 5mhz and run a minute-long benchmark. look for artifacts, lock ups, or strange behavior. if everything looks okay, go up another 5mhz.

once something looks funny or acts different, back it down 5 or 10mhz. that's your core limit. next move on to memory. }:>

power strip is the most popular, coolbits is a little reg addon. i would reccomend powerstrip for any person who wants to overclock with a GeFroce card.

yes Gainward Golden Sample 4200 128meg ...i think Golden Sample is a kind of pick of the litter deal ...only the best chips get the GS stamp

i've had mine at 300/550 for over 24hrs and it was doing ok. I havent tried setting it higher than that, due to it is good to go at those settings. I maybe will try to increase some more and see what go from there. btw, mine isnt a gainward.

andre... if it really has 3.3ns memory, you're guaranteed to be able to push your memory to 600mhz. anything after that is experimental:

2000 / 3.3 = 600

and jz, my 3dmark project is in my sig if you want to compare.

what is the best program to do a benchmark and do i have to keep powerstrip running when i overclock my geforce 2 and go play games???

and what do you think is the maximum to go for a geforce 2 440mx 64 mb

if you have any nvidia-based card, use coolbits! i don't understand why people insist on using powerstrip because it's a third-party program that must remain running in the background. coolbits, on the other hand, is merely a simple registry key (104 bytes) that unlocks nvidia's own overclocking utility which is inside the drivers. no other programs running in the background.

just install the reg key, restart, and go into your driver settings and there will be a "clock frequencies" tab for your enjoyment. have fun.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
