Does anybody know how to properly overclock a video card on windows vista? I tried Ati Tool that worked after installation but the restart dropped it. I also want to know a way to control the video card fan cause the stock settings dont do anything to it?

The question is, why do you have a need to overclock, and the second question is do you have enough cooling in your system to suffice an overclock?

Overclocking can be extremely distasterous with computer hardware. It can cause components in the power supply to become over stresses, which can degrade the system's reliability. It could cause excessive stress on the PCI-16x slot to the point it could fail, and it could cause a motherboard failure where it would not work anymore.


Please perform the following, so that we can get the exact specs of your computer. This will better assist us in helping you more.

Intersting didn't know that and also my cousin attempted to overclock his graphics, he had to make it at a stable point or else it will keep crashing. So it is pretty much experimenting.
