well i have MSI 5900 Ultra VTD256.
when i try to OC it via the MSI Clock control panel i dont see any differnece & when i reboot all the values return to default even that it already asked me if i want to values to stay as they are after rebooting the pc.(using 44.03 drivers btw)

i even tried OCing using riva tuner with 45.20 drivers but still i cant see any differnece !

I was just reading a MSI review online.
It seems they only got 2FPS higher when overclocked.
It was a 128mb I'm not sure on the 256.

I know OCing my 9800 Pro by only 40mhz core gave me about 20 FPS more.

What do you call normal? Can you give us some readings?

I have a ASUS V9950 Ultra here on 500/1000 clocks and that's is 49 degrees centigrade after some 2 days of non-stop computing (2D and 3D BTW) in an ill-ventilated case.
