i just bought a fx 5700 and was wondering if besides there is a program like ATI tool that will find the max speed for the card? also i have stock HSF on it but i have a pci fan below for extra cooling so how far do you think i can it?

looks like you can only overclock your geforce manually. with coolbits, and/or powerstrip, it should be easy.

i have little knowledge of the fx 5700 series, i really begin my knowledge of overclocking in the fx series at the fx 5800u.

there is a program like ati tool called coolbits. it's actually just a registry patch that enables features that are made by nvidia and come with the drivers (such as the ability to overclock, but certainly not limited to that).

you can find coolbits here:

http://oc3dmark.octeams.com/tip02.html <-- the manual "i'm a geek" way

http://www.nvnews.net/files/files.shtml <-- the automagic "i'm a lazy geek" way (my personal preference, lol) suggest this page for many other useful applications that go along with tweaking and overclocking your video card :).

good luck... the auto detect is only good for ballpark estimates; usually you can overclock higher than the auto detect thinks you can.

I have an eVGA FX 5700 Ultra card and I overclocked it really easily to 524/1060 stable with coolbits. Cool bits does have an automatic feature that will OC and verify stability until it finds the highest possible stable clock spped for it. I know the HSF on the eVGS card is very substantial and I experienced little trouble with heat on my OC

you should be able to get a 5700 oc'ed somewhere near midrange between a 5700 and a 5700 ultra. Stock cooling should be sufficient for light to moderate overclocking slightly above 10 percent. It really depends on what doesnt cause your card to artifact for your rig. I would start out slow though, overclock the card 10 percent and then maybe a little higher when you feel its running stable at those clocks. If something goes wrong, downclock a little and see if it does it again.

first would this work with my 5700 le or is it just for the ultra?http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/vid-40.html

second would that work better than this

or this

really there is no point to doing that to the 5700le, if anything if you dont have ramsinks installed that would be your best bet for getting more performance out of it.
