amd gpu clock tool pretty much will let you clock it to anything your risky fingers can type in

even though my clocks are high I wonder why Cirro's gtx still beats me by like 800 3dmarks, will it perform better in games?

 

 

I downloaded the file and installed and it won't let me open the file. Says to right click properties and run as administrator but doesn't seem to be an option.

Depends on the game.

 

Being a quad helps in vantage and 3dmark a lot, but being at 3.55ghz won't give the same increase in performance in games, which are usually only one or two threaded.

well luckily his quad is clocked at 3.6ghz also (but is a Q6600) and I get a solid 2000 more marks than him for CPU. Also I'm not done with the CPU yet, i just wanted to get the 4870 overclocking outta the way before I focused on the final objective :thumbs-up:

Vista Ultimate 64bit. I installed the 9.8 version and it installed okay but when I try to run it says I need admin priveladges and when I right click on the icon the admin priveladges don't show up and it proceeds to tell me that the drivers never installed.
