Fx5200 Overclock Problem


Recommended Posts

My system is:

DFI LanParty Rev. B

Athlon XP Barton 2600+ @ 2363mhz w/ Thermaltake Volcano 12

1x OCZ PC3200 512mb Enhanced Latency Platinum 2-3-2-5

Rosewill FX5200 128mb 64-bit

 

My problem is:

I just built this machine 3 days ago, and its the first time I've ever overclocked a video card. I've tried using nVidia's own menu in Advanced Options, and RivaTuner. The problem is that when I try to turn up the video card's memory speed, even one notch, it restarts the system when I hit Test. I've overclocked the core just fine and stable, but I can't figure out why it flips out when I try to overclock the memory. I even put Thermaltake RAMsinks on it. Maybe the card is too cheap? If anyone has any helpful hints I'd appreciate it. Here is the card I have: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc....-164-012&DEPA=1

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Yeah, I thought I was getting a good deal, I failed to research which other cards were out there before I completed the order. :( I plan on getting a new card by the end of next week, I just wanted to tinker around with this one for fun until then, just for educational purposes.
