alright the question is: i have a Geforce4MX440 AGP8X (my mobo only support 4XAGP) the clock of the card is 275/300, how much can i raise this values by overclokig whitout a ((heat fan sink)) safely. and what can i spect from it

tanks.

Don't expect much. Even with my 5200 overclocked, I don't get much more performance. Think about getting a better card if you want more performance. If you do have to overclock, just use coolbits. It adds an overclocking section to your nVIDIA control panel.

Search for coolbits on Google.

Hi,

you need to have at least a fan/heatsink for gpu to prevent overheat before overclock. I think Geforce mx440 have a heatsink by card maker.

No it doesn't have fan heatsink, but i can get one, what i really want to know is how much you can overclock video cards, i'm using coolbits and the highest values are from gpu/mem 275/300 to 550/720, which are the best and safest values.

Eh, you can try increase it about 5% for safe one and don't try 10% up since it will over heat

but better buy a new card since o/c dangerous for your health(card) :nod:

How far you can overclock depends on the overall of ur system. Try 10mhz at a time untill you can see some bad image when you're in wins. Reduce clock speed slighty. This will be the max.

well i increase it about 10mhz each one gpu/mem and in some games the framerate increase about 2 - 3 frames, whit no glitches, does this mean i can increase even more ??

thanx everybody

It depends on how long you've been stressing the card with the overclock. I recommend either running a game for a couple of hours or let 3DMark (2001 would be best for your card) loop a few times. If there are no artifacts then increase it slightly.

Well it can run most of the stuff in 2001 but 2000 would work too :p. I forgot 2000 existed, I thought the next oldest one was 99 MAX, which is DX6.

2000 is great.. Love that helicopter bench.. Love running it on my current setup with 16xAA and 16x AF just to see it still go smoothly ^^

Ah, so that was the one with the helicopter test. I remember seeing pictures of it not too long ago and thinking it looked decent :p.

275/300mhz seem reasonable with ur mx440, anything higher is risky without cooling. You might also consider increase AGP/PCI ratio clock to get more frames if your mainboard allows manual increase in steps of 0.1mhz, but don't go more than 1mhz.

Heh, overclocking won't give you DX9 support,
gather some money and buy a Radeon 9x00 with a new mobo, 8x AGP will do it
and tell your parents you just fried your GF4MX (overclock it till you get the new stuff ;))

Not a 9x00. A 9500 or above. The 9000-9200 series are all Dx8.1 parts. The other option is to go for an FX 6200 or an ATi x300 (if it appears in AGP)

Right, if you can upgrade, I recommend a 9600 XT or better
and if you get a 9800 Pro, just beware of the 128 bit BUS version...
it's a big bottleneck for the card :(

the highest clock I can go with my MX440 is 285/440, above than that my PC goes HANG, that's already with extra heatsink.
