Sqeak In my humble opinion (hah), unless you "need" to overclock to get enough frame rate to play a game at a particular setting, keep it conservative or don't overclock at all. I change the settings on my card several times a day. When I don't need speed, it's at stock settings. I want it to last.

ACK! What do you mean "keep it conservative or don't overclock at all"? How can anyone who considers themselves to be a true enthusiast have their video card and processor at stock speeds unless it's in the name of testing? And even then, you should do both stock and O/C values. Besides, it will be upgrade time long before you burn out a GF4 GPU even at overclocked speeds.


Sqeak,
As a general rule, increase the memory and GPU frequencies to a point where you begin seeing visual artifacts in intensive 3d titles. Once you start seeing them, back the speeds off by a hair and use this as your normal settings. This will give you the best performance on a regular basis. And since you stated that you had a GF4 cooler, you shouldn't have any real concerns about heat. :)

Keep on Tweakin'

I've got my MSI GeForce4-Ti4400 upto 330/630 very stabily. Most get even higher with the memory.:knife:
