    I think this guide misses something importante, what is the highest safe temperature we can have on a Graphic Card? This way together with the voltage we know if we are playing it safe or not.

    Ofcourse this depends on a lot of things but, what value can be considered safe in terms of temperature I think this number can be introduced in the guide? Or am I tottaly wrong since it depends too much on the Computer we have?

    For example in my x1950xt I managed after replacing the stock cooler for a zalman a temperature of 35º on idle, so now I know I can OC it safetely but... how far can I go? 60º? 70º?

    Thank you.

    I suppose you're right there, it was missed out.

    At stock you'd be ok at anything upto 90c, and even higher but i wouldn't recommend it. I would say anything below 80c load will do just fine if your overclocking, but obviously the lower the better, and to get the best out of it (if you start to add quite a bit of voltage) you'd want a third party air cooler or watercooling.

    you whent too far your memory clock needs to go down a bit or you need to tweek it with voltages

    don't think you can tweak the voltage for the 9000 pro

    Useful info.... as usual. Sorry I'm not experienced enough to make any more useful comment. Having bought a 1024meg 8800gt I played a little with the Nvidia control panel using your tecnique.... It has a test button...not great... because when you "apply" the setting that tested ok it all goes to ****.
    Also I have VDO control panel which also allows adjustment to the shader clock. This does seem to help the numbers.
    Thank you, contributors all, The simplest comment or reference to, for example, monitoring software. is of great help to me!!

    Off topic, I know, how can I read memory temp? (should I only ask this in the memory forum?)

    GPU-Z may be what you're looking for. Or a temperature gun.

    In the end I used thermal sensors that connect to optional temp on the maximus formula. I then taped these to the side of my ram sticks heatsinks directly over the chips. Not ideal I know but did prove that My ram was not overheating .

    Edit ....Back then I didn't have a temp gun
