He means about overclocking his vidoe card, there's not to much help on that thread for overclocking his video card.
I have an X700 as well, and I enjoy overclocking it when I'm playing something intensive like Oblivion. ATi tool is great.
To see you limits, open it up. Then open up the 3D view. Slowly crank up the core by 5 Mhz at a timeand test to see if there's any aritfacts, if there's just a few pixels that are yellow, it's fine. It's when you start seeing big splotches, you gotta' lower the frequency. Also wait a bit and see how much it heats up.
I have the basic X700, but with some extra slaped on memory. I can get my core and memory from 400(core)/275(memory) to a good 486/310 stable. For your memory, you may have more luck, but I really wouldn't reccomend going over a 486Mhz core for the X700. And don't lave it overclocked all night.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
