ASUS V8200 DeLuxe - ASUS V8200 DeLuxe
Mon Nov 05, 2001 | 1:05A| PermaLink
"Speeding up the clock of your memory or core has become very popular IT sports discipline. You are probably flooded with the various instructions on how to overclock your video card or the CPU. This is supported even by the video card manufacturers, who offer the already pre-set o/c modes (like Gainward does with its "Enhanced" operational mode) or the software which will allow you to set those modes yourself (together with the strong warning about what could happen to your card or system). ASUS has taken a step forward - it built in a thermal sonde under the memory and the cooler, as well as the rotation measurer on the fan. All these values are being tracked by a nice Windows application. So, the core temperature was 47°C in room temperature conditions and with the default clock values. Then we tried the standard 235/520 values, the temperature barely rose a degree. We've been trying higher and higher, with the 5MHz increments, and finally reached the unbelievable 260/560 values! This is 60MHz higher core clock and 50MHz (effectively 100MHz) higher memory clock. Our delight was even higher because we remembered how the other cards we reviewed got stuck already at 235/530. After some 20 minutes of torture, the 260/560 setting has produced the temperature you can see on the picture. For a completely stable work, we still recommend the 255/560 setting, on which our o/c results are based. We simply think that it would be a pity not to maintain the card on this overclock level, since it withstands it quite well. There is also an option to raise the voltage on the memory and the GPU, but the procedure was a bit complicated, so we didn't try this one out. After all, this card is too expensive piece of hardware to play with :)"
