View Full Version : my first overclock: geforce 4 mx440

11-26-2002, 06:01 PM
i changed the core to 300 and the memory to 490 without any additional cooling, only the standard cooling.

i have experienced no artifacts in games such as white sparkles.

is this overclock dangerous? if i play games for too long will it overheat to such an extent that it will burn?:(

in unreal tournament i get 75.666000 in flyby and 41.368793 in botmatch at 1024 x 768.

is my card nearly as fast as a mx460?

i'm kinda worried because i hav overclocked it very high and im worried something might go terribly wrong...

any suggestions pls???? :afro: :king:

Nah ya pretty safe with that as a few of us are much higher than that, I've got mine at 320/520 and others are higher again. :devil win

if i put the mem to 500 i get white sparkles and other artifacts in unreal tournament 2003. did u add any additional cooling to get it at 320/520?

what are ur 3dmarks?:angel:

No I havn't but then I was probably lucky though I know of even luckier ones but here's what it gets though an EPoX board I know would've scored higher again (poor memory control on the Gigabyte board, PC No.2 in sig). ;)

What make is the GeForce 4 440MX? I know that with MSI you can get 330/500 with very-high stability *It has been working like that on mine for a LONG time, and get a nice 17 extra frames a sec on UT2003 :D with everything on the highest detail and gets a higher benchmark than the 460MX*.

Usually how much it costs indicates how much it can go beyond it's default settings, but not always.

my sony vaio desktop pc came with a geforce 4 mx440 graphics card so i guess it was made by sony. :(

wen i play unreal tournament it says "cd key is invalid or in use by another player" is there a way to play online without this message?

Well, it depends on weither you're using a copied version of the game, if not, try re-installing it and use a UT2003 key generator *this usually makes a random key and (cross your fingers here) it may come up with a key that isn't being used*.

If this doesn't work, look in your UT2003 manual for a customer service phone line, and complain that your serial doesn't work.

If you have a copy of UT2003, goto...


and download the patch + cd crack, and it may work.... It does on mine :D but I'm going to buy UT2003 when I've got the money, because I do feel guilty using a copied version of the game, anyway, the Unreal team deserve it!

wish me luck

Well, if you click on that link I gave you, it should direct you to a patch for UT2003, then after that, there's a crack to apply after you have applied the patch, online-play works fine on my copy, but it didn't work before witout the patch+crack.

If that doesn't work, try re-installing it with a diffrent key by using a key-generator.

*note: if it has already been cracked without the patch, look on your UT2003 CDs, and search for UT2003.exe and copy it to your harddisk, replacing the cracked exe, then apply the patch and crack, but keep a back-up of the patched exe!! For later patch releases!!*

Good-Luck! :thumb:
