Exclamation 9700 overclocking

I have an ati 9700 non pro (not mobility). It's clocked happily at 338mhz core (676) 300 memory (600) which is above pro speeds I think. This is upped from 1.5v to 1.6. I have an arctic cooler and ram sinks everywhere which seem to do a nice job, but I'm wandering if anyone knows if I can push it further??? If I push it any higher in clock speeds it either hangs or has serious artifacts. Do you think it could take a higher voltage? Has anyone had any experience with the 9700?

You can try upping the voltage, but don't kill it.

I had my AGP frequency at 68MHz (66 standard) once and got a major perfromance boost. However, I'm unable to get the system to do it again.

Maybe you can try.

some cards to compare against, your in the middle low range i think, how hot is the back of the card where the GPU is? more volts will give a little more speed but is the extra 0.2 fps worth the risk?

Standard speeds for a 9700 Pro is 325mhz core and 315mhz memory

I have this great card as well, running at 365/300. I take it you have the Infineon 3.3ns memory on your card, and unfourtenately it won´t go mutch higher. The core should however have a bit more to give. I doubt that you will gain mutch by upping the AGP voltage higher - the port is likely to become instable without giving any better overclocks. You should however double-check that the cooler is perfectly seated, and also see how the temps in your case are. I myself run a Zahlmman ZM80 with a 92mm fan attached to it. If I run the fan full speed I can get to about 395Mhz on the core, but any higher seems to be out of the question. Having a fairly quiet computer I usually run the fan mutch lower.
The memory is more problematic - I have the Infineon kind, and cannot get it stably over 300MHz. 303 is still ok, but looping the Nature test from 3Dmark 2k1 gives artifacts after a couple of runs. I did attach some heatsinks to it, but it makes a very small difference (3-4MHz). This memory gets very hot.
Anyhow the difference between 340 and 380 MHz on the core is fairly small - but there is of course allways the feeling that it isn´t really giving all it´s got...

I haven't actually checked what ram I have, I just stuck some ram sticks on it and then couldn't get them off to see! he he! If infineon memory won;t go much above 300 then it might not be what I have as I can get mine close to 320. I seem to remember someone saying it has samsung, what rating it is I have no idea.
I've put the voltage up to 1.7 with no bad effects and I'll eek it out a bit and see what I get.
