Default Overclocking & Voltages.

I've OCed my card's clocks from 450/850 to 550/950 for quite some time now without any major problems so far. My question is is it necessary to adjust my AGP voltage settings when the card is OCed? If so, how do I calculate how much power increment per MHz increase & will it increase the card's temp coz its already idling at around 47 degrees. Thnx in advance for any help.

There is no need to change AGP voltage from its norm of 1.5v, unless you are overclocking the mobo AGP bus. So leave AGP voltage alone if only concerned with overclocking your vga card.

Punisher, I don't want to sound like an ass but... you put case fans on their own 350W PSU? Heck, your whole rig would do fine on a single 300W PSU...

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

I'm not using really killer PSUs so although its rated as 420 & 350 its actually a bit lower than that. Maybe around 390 & 320 only. So to keep my 420 from straining due to 6 case fans I added an old 350 just for them. I intend to upgrade to a killer 550w monster some day when I have the cash.
