    I have a Leadtek A250 TD and im thinking about how to clock it at really fast speeds. It has a huge HS and two 40mm HSF's and the memory is covered with the HS and HSF. In this book im reading called the The Extreme Gamer's PC by Loyd Case (or something)It says that Leadteks, Gainwards, and something else where ment for overclocking. Through Overclocking Speed Runner in WinFox (the control utility that cam w/ the card), I have it clocked to 310/590 MHz from its Default at like 275/570 (it uses a TI4400 which i personnaly thought was faster).Icant get it much higher than that. e.g. when i tried to play MOHAA (based on Quake 3 engine) at 330/610 it wouldn't go into the game playing part(I could go to the main menu, but i cound't actually play ) So is it a Temp problem or a issue with some component Im running this computer(i know its not too great, but dont worry im upgrading)

    I have like a HUGEASS heatsink on that thing. It is about 3x3 on the back and 4x3 on the front, and it has to tornado 40mm fans. I also just through one of my case fans (an 80mm) on the back of it, so it cant be a HS or HSF problem. But i have i about 35 MHz faster then clock so i guess it is alright. But if u have anyideas please tell still

    What program have you used to overclock:?: And if you want more speed go into your bios and increase the AGP slot voltage by 0.1 incraments until u get the speed you want from your card:devil:
    Don't do too much as we all know wot can happen.

    i use the winfox overclocking utility, which came with it and was meant for the board. And my motherboard cant do AGP voltage changes. but thanks anyways

    (p.s. when i said 3x4, 4x4, i meant inchs)

    Have you tried Powerstrip????? Its in my opinion the best overclocking utility and it might be able to unlock those extra mhz. As i can't give you a link to download the software i'll send u to my site which has links.:devil:

    Check to make sure that the heatsinks are contactin' the core and memory properly as some report this prob and fix it. But highend products don't overclock as well as the lower versions do. ;)
