NVIDIA 8800GT's starting to make an appearance

Even before the ink has dried on NVIDIA's NDA surrounding the 8800GT graphics card, we are starting to see images of the card starting to do the rounds on the www.

The first cab off the rank is MSI's variant of the 8800GT

Find out more from Donanimhaber (if you speak Turkish)

Secondly, FOXCONN made sure that people were aware that their 8800GT was ready to go by jumping the gun significantly. Blatantly ignoring the current NDA, someone at FOXCONN decided that it would be cool to post up a product page outlining all the details including an image of what the card will look like...Thank you FOXCONN.
NVIDIA soon got wind of the leak and promptly forced the removal of the page. Luckily for us, the lads at TechConnect made sure they got a screenshot of the product page before it was pulled.

It will be interesting to see if other VGA manufacturers continue with the reference cooler, or run with their own cooling solutions.

Wow very nice.

Go download coretemp, or everest, u need to no ur temps or else GG

how many volts?

nice work there
hopefully your temps aren't in the 50-60C range
I've only been able to get to about 2565 (270 x 9.5 @ 1.5V) on my x2 3800 s939
I've used both core temp and everest
core temp has a much smaller footprint, but everest tells you a lot more

right now everest seems to be reading temps a bit high compared to the other sensors I'm running (asus pc probe, AI booster and core temp)

Nice OC, I couldn't get more than 2.525 GHz out of my X2 4600. Probably because I had a dirt-cheap motherboard (ASUS M2NPV-VM) that wouldn't let me change the CPU voltage. That's what you get when you spend $102 on a motherboard...

Hi. Wonder if you could all help me. I have the 4200+ and being the n00b i am i downclocked it. i have a gigabyte m55S-S3 mobo and just wondered what i need to get the most i can out of my processor without oblitorating it. i have a
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro V2 On it atm


help would be much appreciated.

thanks guys.

Hey good to hear from you - I am by no means an expert - I suppose the OC you can achieve really is unique to each processor, as every one will clock differently. It seems I must have a pretty good chip to get up to 3GHz, but as I understand it the average OC for a 4200+ would be around the 2.6-2.7GHz mark.
The easiest way to do this would simply be to up the FSB (The HTT Link SPeed is the same thing) Leave the multiplier at 11x so you can achieve a higher clock with a lower FSB - Also I would suggest upping the voltage to around 1.45V or somewhere around that mark and up your case fans quite high to keep the chip cool.
If you want your memory running faster then drop the multi down to 10x and your RAM will get a larger dividend of the HTT speed and will run faster.
Tips basically are don't go too high if your hardware isn't up to the job (crap RAM will not OC well) and make sure you have enough airflow to keep it all cool.

Hope this helps.

1.576 Volts I believe.

All i can up is the mhz on the chip i cant seem to find out where the fsb is on my mobo. any ideas


thanks

To up the MHz on your chip then surely you are actually upping the FSB??
On most AM2 boards, if not all AM2 boards, the FSB will be called HTT, and you adjust the HTT link speed to increase the clock speed on your CPU and RAM.

I thought that too but all i have is htt vaultage control.


sorry im a n00b.

Perhaps it would be wise to invest in a better mainboard then perhaps if you are serious about overclocking. I aren't too sure on this, but I would have thought a fairly decent Gigabyte board like you have would allow at least some overclocking - try taking a look in the Cell Menu or a similar option tab in the bios. From there you should be able to up the HTT link speed / FSB
