    I love this thing, I just OCed it to 340/680 and its blazing! My 3dmark01 score is 17,980 with my system! Almost 18k! OCing is the best. Im gonna OC my CPU a little more once I get a new HS/F ( probably the SLK800u ) so what do you guys think?:cool:

    How are you getting such high scores with almost no overclock? Are you running all the tests at default settings? 6500 in 03 is not possible with that card clocked so low.

    Donno dude, but this card is rockin. I have it OCed a little over pro speeds, but im on my laptop right now, so i dont know exactly how much. I think its like 10mhz more for both. I just wish Half Life 2 would come out.....BTW, has anyone seen those screens at gamespot? They look like ****, i hope the real game doesnt look like that....:tears:

    FYI 9800 Pro clock speeds are 380/340, and can be taken upwards of 480/380 on air cooling. If your non pro can do that, that's one helluva deal. I'll stick with the Pro.

    Still think your 03 is bugged or wasnt run at defaults.

    How about a link to those scores man? Cause I only scored 6000 with my 9700 @ 450. Yours is running a full 32% slower.

    Actually 25%......but still you get the idea...your score should be closer to the 4500-5000 range.

    Sovereighty, is yours a 9700 non pro? If so which tweaking program do u use to oc it? And what can u oc it too without it getting unstable? I've just put a pci graphics card cooling fan on it. How much would you suggest i oc it too like it is, cos i only score 4776 in 3dmark03 with all ati control panel settings set to optimum performance.


    thx

    His is a bit different than your average 9700 non pro...click the links in his sig to find out why.

    the 6,100 mark is not hard for my system, so why are you guys saying it is impossible? My vid. card is at 390/700 running stable, but if i go like 10 more, its over. I have a thermaltake smartcase fan II blowing over my videocard at maxed RPM, so its keeping it really cool. I also turned everything off or low ( vsync, AA, minimap, etc.. ) and set everything to "preformance" rather than quality.
