Has Anybody done this? And How Much?

 

Please post your overclock and method.

 

I am getting one of these at the end of the week and wanted to see what others have done.

 

Thanks.

 

 

Mod's I didn't know where to post this, you can move it to where it fits best.

(You really need a Video Card Forum Section)

I'll let you know next week, I'm getting my Evga 7900GTX EGS through the step up program. Should be here by the end of next week.

 

I use Riva tuner to set my fan speed, and cool bits for my overclocking of my current card. I have heard that cool bits is no longer being supported and that NVtweak is the new overclocking tool to have for Nvidia cards.

 

3DGuru is the place to find all that good vid card stuff.

hey UPS actually came early! got the card last night. I've done some pre overclock benches and got 10,053 on 3dmark 05, as that good? I've set the card to 703/900 How high should I try to push this. Stock cooler is being used, but it's never goten above 45c.

 

Thanks.

For those of you that have been following my overclocking (all 2 of you). My max seems to be around

Thats about 45mhz on the core and 200mhz on the Memory! Not to bad.

 

Anything higher and the card starts to hang in 3dmark and i get like scores of 8000.

 

My highest 3dmark was 11301.

I probably wont get my 7900GTX till sometime next week, the wife sent my trade in Fedex's slowest mail! :confused:

 

As soon as I get it I will be posting some benchamarks as well....

 

Are you running stock cooling on that card?

I was thinking of throwing a Zalman VF900 on mine when I get it, should improve the overclock a bit.

I want to trade my 7800gt for a 7900gt but right now they are backordered.

 

If you purchased it within the past 90 days, sign up for the step up program now. It might take a while, but you will get a new card. Only took me 3 weeks to get my email from Evga and I was #61 in the que. But you need to sign up before the 90 days is up or your out of luck!
