    Default OC'ing ATI 9600

    I have an ATI 9600 XT 256MB Engine Clock:500Mhz, Memory Clock:300Mhz
    4 parallel rendering pipelines and 4 parallel geometry engines.
    I need a start to overclock thise, I've read some threads but I need more basic stuff, I'm really beginner in thise OC...any helps will be good...

    Use ATI tray tools, you can get it from Guru3d.com. Just bring up your clocks in small incriments until it becomes unstable. Then set it back a few MHz. It seems you have addiquate cooling so you should be alright heat wise. ATI tray tools will also automatically find the best reference divider so it will keep everything pretty stable. You can always set it back to default. It's pretty easy to figure out though.

    Long story made short: Just do it until it doesn't do it anymore.

    It won't be stable... It'll crash, freeze, lock up, or whatever you want to call it. More importantly, it will do it for no reason whatsoever, meaning Windows is not at fault.

    watch out on the overclocking on the 9600.........i have one........dont recomend it...........its a fair card for what it is.............low price and 256 megs .........it will lock up the pc.........................it causes everything to shut down...............so if you try it........remember what your best performance setttings were............i had to de-clock mine to get a stable card and still have good fps............i shoulda bought a 9800

    I've never had an stability problems associated with any of the 9550/9600 family. In fact, most of them make excellent overclockers.

    That said, the fact that you are seeing artifacts at such low speeds is a problem. I would think you either have major cooling issues, or the memory on the video card simply can't handle higher speeds, in which case you should leave memory on stock and OC the core only. Also, don't simply leave ATI Tool auto-overclock function running unless you have a lot of time on your hands. It's usually best to simply take small jumps on your own until you start seeing artifacts, then take it back a notch and turn the auto function on. After it has found a max setting, it's usualy best to set the speed back by about 5MHz to ensure you don't get in-game artifacts.
