    Probably not, SiS is geared more towards the OEM market, so they don't try and make it so overclocking can be easily done, as thats a big no-no in the OEM market.

    If your chip is a Palamino, that doesn't help things at all.

    Bump it up in 3-5mhz increments, core and memory, and run 3DMark2001SE after each bump-up to see if there's any artifacts, artifacrs are any visual discrepancies caused by overheating and/or overstressing of the components.
