Settle down, no need for vulgarity. Try NVclock. As always, this is dangerous and can cause all sorts of funky errors, blah blah blah decreased stability blah use at your own risk blah void your warranty blah. Have fun!

I have used NvClock 6.2 for my GeForce FX 5200 card. You will have to modify the source and add the values for your card info to
"nvclock0.6.2/src/backend/info.c"

{ pci_id, "Name of card", mem_min, mem_max, core_min, core_max, supported? (1,0)},

Example:

{ 0x322, "nVidia GeforceFX 5200", 400, 500, 250, 333, 1 },

then build the source.
I got 300 core and 418 mem easy. You really can't get the mem very far because most of the 5200 cards don't have any cooling heatsink.

Wait!

I'm the author of nvclock, nv30 based boards work different related to overclocking. Nvclock 0.7 will contain nv3x support but no overclocking yet since I don't have access to a nv3x based card

Hmm .. didn't read the second post ..
Did changing that make nvclock work on a FX5200?? Since I need a totally different algorithm for the other nv3x boards (FX5600/5800/5900). Did it see everything correctly at startup?

Please try to email me too, I'm not allways on this forum and I need more info.

Yes, NvClock seemed to setup the regs correctly.... or so I think. I have a evga 5200 board.
NvClock starts with the correct values for the core and mem speeds. Tests indicate that NvClock changes the core and mem. But if I run a intense 3D game and a high core clock of 300 (based on NvClocks settings) after running the game the clock seems to reset to 250 Mhz. Might be the board thottling?
If need any testing I'm willing to help.

Can you contact me by email, look for the email inside nvclock. If you are willing to help I need some more test info and will give you a test version.

Thanks in advance.
