    OK ive got a Asus V8420 (non deluxe), and am looking to overclock. At the moment, ive got Omegas tweaked detonator drivers installed along with coolbits reg hack.

    ive read that this card is a good overclocker (but most mention the deluxe version which has a higher clock frequency)


    Ive found a "guide" on the net that talks about this card http://www.lostcircuits.com/video/asus_v8460/13.shtml

    The stock frequency on the guide is 250/444 MHz , while mine was 250/446 MHZ, so im assuming this guide is mentioning the non-deluxe version.

    Ive pushed the clock to 310/552 MHZ - playing underground, i can run the game at pretty much full settings with good frame rates (which i couldnt do before) and have not noticed any artifacts or graphical errors - does this mean it is stable, and i can go ahead and check the "apply overclock at startup" or is there more i should look into before assuming it is OK ?

    If you're not getting any graphical artifacts, then you're off to a good start. Before telling it to always use this speed, though, try running a graphically intense game for about an hour or so. I've not played Underground before so I don't know if this title qualifies. If you can do this with no graphical problems, no getting kicked to desktop or random reboots (indicating a possible heat problem), then I'd say go for it. :D

    awesome, does the lack of graphical errors/artifacts also mean that the card is not overheating? I would hate to have it die on me without sign in the next few days or something.

    Yes if it was gettin' to hot then it'd either lock up or produce artifacts. The Leadtek Ti4200 I'm typin' this reply on runs at 320/560 and will run continuous loops of 3DMark'01 for hours without a glitch but if I increase either the core or the memory a bit more then it starts to show problems.

    ya actually im quite surprised how far this can go, Ive been playing NFS Underground for like 2 hours, and it hasnt froze once, even on its high settings with most of the eyecandy turned on. I will see if i can raise it a bit more!

    Man, maybe my card is different, but why do you boost your core so high and keep your memory so low? Memory boosts give me a lot more FPS than a core boost does. Am I missing something? Thx, : peace2: Mista K6

    Probably the fact that there are limits to how far a particular part can go? Mine bein' 128MB VIVO models likely has something to do with that as well.
