Overclocking

Gainward Bliss 8800GT has proven to be a good overclocker; we managed to reach core 728MHz and memory 1020MHz.

Gainward Expertool is a tool that will make overclocking easier for inexperienced users.

Our first attempts at overclocking stopped at stable 690MHz core and 1020MHz for memory. The card ran quietly, but we realize that the core temperature presents a limiting factor. In dynamic work mode, core temperature went sky high – 86 degrees Celsius.


By using manual fan speed settings, we managed to raise the frequency up to 728MHz, and the memory to 1030Mhz. Temperature was acceptable – 65 degrees Celsius.

Overclocking results were good. Geforce 8800GTX was overshadowed after 3DMark 06.
