GeForce 2 GTS just that little further

I started a thread at another forum which got little response 'cos the kids were soldering iron scared !!!!
Here goes ...

I've got a waste of space Creative GF2GTS graphics card that just won't overclock - or at least I did have. I was reading this article over at XBit labs (http://www.xbitlabs.com/video/gefor...erclocking.html) and decided that since I couldn't overclock my core past 212MHz (default 200MHz) and memory past 350MHz (default 333MHz) there waere some drastic measures that needed to be taken.


All you need to do is shunt to ground resistor R811 with 180 Ohms to raise GPU voltage from 2.05 to 2.55v, and shunt R816 with 650Ohms to raise memory from 2.5 to 3.1v.

Simple - except I didn't have the resistors and had to do it with surface mounts in series !!

As I did mine with SMT's and wire my attempt was a little messier, but just as efective with me achieving 250MHz core and 410MHz memory !!! I've since got 5257 with default settings for 3Dmark 2001.

This is how neat xbits attempt was with proper resistors (much neater than mine above - but only as effective)

Remember that this can be done on any reference design card.

Following is an image of the whole thing.

Anyone have 3DMark2001 comparison URL's to post to compare FSB's, drivers, scores etc ? Here's mine -

Re: GeForce 2 GTS just that little further

Interesting... I've an MX that doesn't like overclocking. Adding extra cooling gets me an extra couple of percent, but no more.

Very nice and clean I see. When I get back from Edinburgh I might give it a try, as I've a GF2MX or two lying around. Seem to remember from a previous thread here that some of the GF2MX cards varied in the core supply voltage as manufactured. The GF2MX I'm running is a little on the low side, which might be why it doesn't like the overclocking...
