Does this driver or utility let me to overclock the vram to 200MHz instead of 183MHz? The vram is Samsung 5ns, full 128bits.
The Geforce2 MX400 with vram faster than 6ns SDRAM is incredibly hard to find especially 128bits. Only one MX400 I found is 64 bit DDR with 4ns.
Keeping in mind to use much older drivers if needed would it?
This got me wondering if the MXR's are good overclockers, or at least better then the MX's.
So i dug out my 2 cards and started playing.
Used whatever was in the testbench:
ABIT KT7A v1.1 with an AXP 1800+, all performance related settings enabled and or maxed out in BIOS.
Card's have 6ns Winbond memory chips.
OS = W2K SP4, driver 71.89.
Regular old "coolbits" applied and sure enough the overclocking features show up.
Added an MX style passive heatsink to the card (mine are the heatsink less slower clocked variant from MSI) with a slow 120mm casefan blowing on it.
First tests shows 225 core and 225 mem is stable for 3DMark 2000 (and everything else i could find to torture it with).
Results are 4602 3D Marks at standard clocks (175 core, 166 mem).
And overclocked results a really nice 5676 3D Marks.
Not enough dethrone my 2 ASUS V7100's who manages about 250 core and the same mem.
Well atleast the MXR's are a good alternative to our lovely MX's.
Geforce drivers install WO issue and gaming performance is identical at the same clocks.
Neither cards are expensive, but its still nice to have options =)
