o/c my gf4ti 4200

hay i have used both the coolbits hack and the current rivatuner and to no such avail

i run 3dmarkse2001 at like 10167.... which is good mind you

but the card i'm using is capable of well over 13000

yet no matter if i o/c it it makes very little improvement ?

and ideas as to what is going on?

i have a gigabyte 7vrxp v1.1 mobo

512 ddr 333

and my card is an albatron gf4 ti 4680 turbo (4200gpu)

and ideas as to what the hell i'm doing wrong?

Make sure you are not using FSAA and AF. Also you can lower the mip-map levels to highes performance. How high have you  overclocked your card? I know that your card can go to 320/710. Here is this review of your card compared to others: http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/...4ti4200-7.html

You know what?, I think it's the desert that is making you get low overclocks.I know how it feels . What's your room temp right now? It might affect the heat inside the PC making the heat go to the 3d card making it hot. Mine room temps are at 92 F.

3dm2001 depends a lot on cpu speed and bandwidth. If you can drop the multi and up the fsb you should get some improvement for the same cpu speed. Also, if its just for benchies get rid of as many desktop icons as you can, close down running processes in the background, get rid of any wallpapers.
