Overclocking the GPU a bit.

Just figured out how to make my old Arctic Cooling Silencer Rev. 3 work on my X800. I figure now I can hit some sort of decent overclock. I've got ATI tool version .24 and it's monitering my temperatures and my overclocking for now. Is this a good program for temp monitoring? Or is there something more precise? My current temps hover around 40c idle and 45-50c load. Is that normal? How far should I be able to push this card? Thanks in advance.

Yeah you are safe at those temps and much more, above 70°C is when I would be uncomfortable about temps.

You are safe clocking it until it affects stablity, atitool has a handy artifact detector so you know when you've gone too far

Rage3D has a nice overclocking tool, you can use it in co-op with ATI tool too.
I use the Rage for overclocking, and the Tool for temperature monitoring.

By the way - is your card an "x800" or x800-pro?

An X800 unfortunately. PCI-E at that. I think I read somewhere you have an incredible unlocked X800 series card. Mind sharing the details?

the newer cards are pcb locked. the old AGP pcb was good for any series of x800, and they used bios locks to disable functionality. In the new PCI-e version they actual disable the power going to certain parts of the gpu/pcb, and hence prevent bios-mods unless you change some of the hardware.
