re
i have a sparkle fx 5600xt( :eek2: crappy,i know but it was a gift so...anyway was better than my ancient voodoo 3 3000) and i used to oc that card from 235/400 to 340/450....all worked just fine(using 56.72)
when the 6x.xx series was released i tried all drivers.....just can't oc memory :cry: ;gpu still works at 340
i've seen on other forums similar threads....and still i didn't find a solution


anyone......?
i would appreciate any ideea that does not involve flashing the card's bios.
tnx
