Unlikely. From memory, ATI cards are quite content at their stock voltage, as opposed to Nvidia cards which quite like an AGP voltage boost.

More voltage will result in more heat at the regulators, and its unlikely to do much at all.

I would consider some different drivers. Have you tried the Catalyst 5.7s? From memory, they benefit 64/128MB cards better than other drivers.

I would give it a go. It cant hurt to try different things, and I think this would be a good option as far as drivers go.

Uninstall the old ATI drivers, reboot into safe mode, use drivercleaner (www.drivercleaner.net) to remove all of the remains of your old ATI drivers, and install the Catalyst 5.7 set from AOAFiles

The only thing I noticed about your English is that it is markedly BETTER than that of most native English speakers... present company excepted, obviously

Where are you from, mate?

Ah sorry, I didn't realise you had a 256MB card. The 5.7s might still work well for you, as while you have the ram size, your ram bandwidth is somewhat limited.

If the 5.7s are not great, it might even be worth trying the ATI 6.2 Catalysts. They are just released and are on the AOA front page right now for download if you're interested.

The driver game is all about trying them all until you find one that gives you stability, with the best mixture of image quality and performance.

My best suggestion is what I just told him.

1: Get your drivers sorted, so that you have the best performance / quality mixture possible

2: Overclock hard using ATITool and its stress test.

3: Lower your temps, and overclock even more.

To lower your temps, new cooling is often the usual solution. However there are easier ways.

A) 90% of the time, the thermal goop between your GPU and your GPU HSF is complete rubbish. Get that crap off (carefully) and use an appropriate thickness (a thin haze, but evenly distributed, even thickness, and right to the very edges of the core).

B) Clean the dust off the HSF

C) Move your PCI cards away from it to give it more breathing room.

D) If you have an external power connector, make sure it is not shared with anything else, make sure its secures, and make sure the connection and voltages (particularly +5V for ATI cards) is good.

What is your current overclock?

My overclock is currently 300Mhz Core and 250Mhz Memory. This GPU only has a heatsink so i'll take your suggestion and buy something new for it.

Oh. Mate you are in an interesting position.

Now, do you have, a 40mm, or 50mm fan lying around? A 40mm fan or 50mm fan (they come on top of retail CPU heat sinks) is the best kind.

What you can do is use a pair of kitchen twist ties to tie the fan onto the passive heatsink, turning a passive heatsink into a very efficient active heatsink.

Do you have one of these fans spare?

As a matter of fact i do, 40mm i think. I'll give your mod a go

Plastic twist ties work best, you know the insulated ones that are metal wire with plastic around them for putting around the top of small bags of food / bread.

The GPU heatsink should be held on by two bolts, diagonally over the heatsink, one at the top right, one at the bottom left. Basically, on a diagonally bolted heatsink, you loop the twist tie, under the part of the heatsink that joins it to the mounting bolt, and then bring those two ends of the twist tie up through the screw holes of the fan.


Just looking at images of it, it looks to be a large rectangular silver thing without the diagonal mounts. So just position the fan the way you want it, and tie it onto the heatsink the way you want. In this case, even an 80mm fan might be a better option as its a big heatsink

It will half your temperatures probably.

I first came up with this 6 years ago with my Nvidia Riva TNT2 M64 passive cooled chip.

It overclocked by 10Mhz at stock, and ran at 70-80C from memory. After the fan, which was out of a router (medium speed 40mm fan) it went own to 40C fully loaded and overclocked like hell.

Do you think you could take some pictures of it while you do it, and before and after results? Would be well interesting.
