    Ciao,
    I would like to overclock a little bit my Sapphire ATI Radeon 9700 atlantis pro....

    I am newbie so I would like to know the easiest way to do it...
    Program to use.... where to find it... ecc.

    Also would like to have a better cooling sistem on it... (not liquid one..) where to find it?

    The best program that I have found so far to overclock the ATI boards is called PowerStrip. It can be found here.

    As to a new cooler, there has been a lot of promise shown with the new variety of Heatpipe coolers that are hitting the streets. They cool effectively and they are also completely silent since there is no fan used. It is also the same cooling solution used on the Ultimate Edition of the Sapphire board you use. It is made by Zalman and is available at a large number of online stores. Just make sure to pick up some RAM sinks to go with it for any uncovered modules you will have after removing the factory cooler.

    Good luck. :D

    Well you can always up the agp voltage by small incraments. that'll help a bit but the best would be powerstrip by far the best overclocking utility available for graphics cards.:thumb:

    No, the PowerStrip utility does not require any BIOS adjustments.

    Nice setup Hawks. :D

    You should be able to get a bit more out of the memory though. On my Sapphire card and passive cooling I was able to get 350MHz on the DDR (700MHz effective) with no problems. Just some food for thought. ;)
