seems like i gotta stick a little heatsink n' fan to the memory to OC it....but how does the fan get powered up? or would heatsinks be enough?

well, how far up core/mem can you go up to without seeing any artifacts?
Just go up little by little (10 Mhz at a time) until you can see some artifacts (snow effect or irregular textures). Then wind it back a little. The GPU won't fry unless you put it through some extreme stress. I've had experience overclocking my videocard and it seems like a relatively safe procedure. Just make sure to test thoroughly.Originally posted by Shiori
I don't even wanna know that withour getting some insurance. Better to be safe than sorry....i won't have anything to replace a fried geforce.....and I certainly dont want to go back to ol' Pentium II 266!
If you can get over 60 fps at the normal settings you won't notice any difference. (Most benchmarks are just numbers anyways) It depends on how far you overclock but there isn't really that much of a difference. You might be able to gain several frames when running games at really higih resolutions but that's about it.Originally posted by Asfaloth
1) With a monster rig like that (yes, it is a monster rig ) will o/cing really make any visible difference?
2) If I don't add any cooling equipment, how much can I o/c the card without endangering it? The case is supposedly well-ventilated and cooled.
3) Which has more effect, o/cing memory or core?
