View Full Version : Overclocking the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti 4200?
I was just wondering if anyone has this card and how high they got it to go? I got it to 300/600 and it was getting a little shaky.
Also bigger question. I just bought an Nforce2 board and was wondering if anyone knew how high the AGP bus clock speed could go up with this card? I recently fired an 440MX going to high with AGP bus speed on a KT333 MB.

You want your AGP bus speed as close to 66 MHz as possible. Most, if not all nForce2 boards have the option in the BIOS to lock the AGP/PCI speeds at 66/33. This will allow you to maximize the overclock of your CPU without touching other buses.
I was looking to OC the AGP bus if possible. I have heard however you really don't get that much of a perfomance boost from it.
If I do however, how much do you think I should go up.?
gf4's can't handle too much of a kick-up in AGP speed, but benifit still... Check out benchies of KT333's when they first came out; they were initially pitted against OC'ed kt266a's... The older boards whomped on kt333 somethin fierce.... cuz of the agp speed... If yer the modding type, a volt mod would get you a higher core/mem speed, and I do believe it would help your card withstand higher agp frequencies... Some don't really want their pci peripherals runnin @ 44mhz.
nforce2's have some sort of lock, don't they? ehhh... I wish you could maybe get agp @ 80mhz or so and keep pci between 32 and 37mhz... well, AND kick fsb up to 200 or so... :)
OFF TOPIC: ... sounds like you could get more use out of my tbredB than I could, ya bastard... Forgot to tell you that when you came over after work:).
With that cpu, you could run @ 10.5x200 (would 10.5 be accesible?) probably with good cooling and the right ram (twinmos, geil, crucial premium... etc...)
... oooog!! *jellus of your dual channel*
Back to the vidcard... Google "geforce 4 volt mod" and read up on what you get. You may get info on if actually the mod creates agp freq. headroom; as my statement had some speculation to it...
@ amdforums, check the posts of [OC]_This... he has an abit nforce2 board, and is using that instead of his trusty ol' kt266a (crazy bandwidth-ized) to get his world record gf3 scores (13K!! CRAZY!!)... yeh I know, he holds 3dmark scores in high regard... some say "bleh" to that, but I believe it has its credibility and uses as a measure of a card's perf....
If I was you, I'd lap the hsf down to copper and throw Zalmans on every chip... then volt mod it... Why not? You want stock to mild ti4200-ish perf in this day and age where 9500's are runnin rampant blabberin bout dx9 and AA/AF?
... hey, if you volt mod yers, then you can do mine too. Sounds fair, right? j/k... "we have the technology"
OR, you could sell that card for what you paid for it, kick down $10-$15 and get a well treated 128mb ti4400 from a heavy poster @ a fs/ft forum...
I had to say that simply cuz you gots only 64mb on that card. You wanna play doom3, right?
... enuff of my banter. See you tomorrow. More on this later.
