View Full Version : 1.7 Ghz too high for a 7600GT mem clock??

I can run fine without problems @ 600/1700 but the memory is WAY over spec for 1.4ns chips.

even though its very happy do you guys think thats pushing it too high??

Two questions, are you running anything that is stressing the memory (and all of it), second, is it just a "vanity" overclock? Does that overclock gain you any real benefit?

hi mate,

Im running FEAR, Oblivion & BFME2 at the mo - all of which stress the card to max pretty much.

as for vanity, well I gain an extra 2-3 fps over the current clocks so its by no means a required overclock.

IIRC, the RAM on most(all?) of the 7900GTs is overvolted by default to get it to the higher speeds.

It was stable for me all the way up to 1820, but I didn't see enough of a performance delta to bother, so I keep it at 1700.

I LOVE this card :D

Is asking about the 7600 GT or the 7900 GT? I'm confused. :confused:

Sorry, I misread the title :retard:

I guess they could be doing the same thing with the 7600. I'll go crawl back under a rock now :D
