I know its an old card, but its what i've got for now :) Anyone have some safe overclocking levels for it? I am using RivaTuner to do the OC'ing. This is with the stock heatsink and fan, nothing fancy here.

Thanks guys :)

Every card is different. Start going up in 5 MHz increments then run 3DMark (2003 or 2001, doesn't matter). If it locks up, back down on the core. If it artifacts (you'll know when you see) then the memory is too high.

Thanks for the tip, I will do that :) Hope to be getting one of the new NV40's very soon and not have to worry about all this ruckus ;)

safely expect 210/480

Some get 215/500

Some even get 220/515

/me personally likeys gainward golden sample 128mb ti200's that do ~240/~550 :p:p

I notched it up to 210/480, and in the first Dragoithic game I saw a bit of scanline tearing, which I hadn't seen before. All the other bench's ran just fine. Think I should stick to 210/480, or notch it down a bit?

Mine peaks out at 220/520. After that, it starts showing artifacts.

I had a palit Daytona ti200 and it reached 215/510 with stock cooling

I currently have it at 215/500, and it seems to be running well, I think I will leave it there. I saw about a 1500 point jump in 3DMark 2K1, so I am happy :)
