James Scholes: Hi, this is James and welcome to my RivaTuner Overclocking Guide. In this video, I am just going to take you through the simple steps of overclocking your graphics card using a free program called RivaTuner. Now the first thing you want to make sure is that your graphic card drive is up-to-date.
So go and update them or just make sure that it will update. After you've done that, you should be ready to overclock. Now the first thing that you want to be aware of is that one or two out of that we'll be able to say this customizes button here. Now if that's the case, there is two ways about it. You can either go into the power user section and activate it manually, which I'll show you how to do that in another video -- altogether or you can go and download another free program called ATITool. ATITool works in the very similar way to RivaTuner when it comes to overclocking. So if that's the case, if you can't find the customized button, go Google it right now and download it, and you can still use this video on how to overclock your graphics card.
Anyway, click on the customize tab, click on your system settings window and you should have your system tweaks window. Now click on this checklist and they should bring up this window. Basically what it does, it just detects all your overclock settings and it gives you permission to overclock manually. Now make sure that's on performance 3D. Your link clocks is unticked. If that's ticked, basically it moves your core clock and your shade clock in sync with each other. To get the most performance from your PC, you want that unticked because it may overclock further than the other. So make sure it's unticked. Now to overclock, I would recommend -- for the core clock. My current speed of my core clock is 576. Now to overclock it, I will just move it up 10 points, so that it moves from 576 to 586. So I'll move it up definitely, like so and then go down here and click apply. The graphics card is now overclocked.
Now I would recommend to benchmark every time you do this. It can get a bit tiresome but if you want the most performance out of your graphics card, you need to do this. The programs I would recommend on downloading, free by the way, is 3DMark05 or 3DMark06. There are usually versions of DX10 graphics card uses, but I would just recommend using these. Like I said, they are free, so go download that. Basically, you want to run those demos. If you can run those demos without your PC trashing without having the blue screen, which you see a lot when overclocking. If you don't see these rainbow big flashing colors while the demo is running, if you do see that, that called artifacts. Basically that means that your graphics card is getting a bit too hot and they're trying to malfunction and things like that. If you see that, you can probably play games with them flashing all day along but basically it's a sign that your graphics card is working a little too much and it's going to really bring down the last one -- of your graphics card, so it's worth bringing it back down.
Any way if you got it stable, the safer overclock, and the demo is running fine, you want to go down to your floppy disk, save overclocking profile and create a profile. For this one, I'll just call it one. Now that we've created a profile, that's just basically means that -- basically we got a nice safer overclock. So what do we do now if it's goes horribly wrong? We can always go back to that last stable safe overclock and then try something different.
Now once you've done that, you would bring some repair. So it's 586, I would move that up to 596 and then click apply, benchmark. If it's a safe stable overclock, I would save the game and keep doing, not moving up ten, I'll move it up ten. Eventually you'll get to the point where it will crash, all you will see those flashing artifacts that I mentioned earlier. Basically instead of move it down -- I may back to the last -- move it down five, if you want as much performance, and then move it up three. If you trying to, say move it down two, you know I am sure you can get to the peak of its performance, just as squeeze as much performance as possible. Then that's' said -- basically, that's just as far as you core clock saying it would go at those -- graphics cards configuration settings. Then basically you do the same again with the shader clock and then the memory clock.
Just one thing you should know that your shader clock, not everybody will have a shaded clock, it's only reserved for the DX10 graphics card owners only on outputs. If you've got DX9 graphics card, and you want to go shade -- you'll have a shader clock, so don't worry about if you got say, just you want that graphics card that can do shaders, and basically bring some repair. Then just keep creating profiles on your less stable overclocks and that's it.
Now if you want your graphics card to start overclocked every time you reboot the computer, you can just simply go to apply overclocking at window startup; just tick that box and it'll show you the overclock setting that your PC will startup with and just click apply and that's it. Now every time a PC boots, those overclock settings will startup and that's it. That is the basics of overclocking your graphics card. Now to get more performance to overclock even higher, what you can do is another little trick. I am basically going back to the main window, going to the top customize. I am going to this one here. Basically, you can actually speed up your graphics card fans. Now better remember that your graphics card needs a fan in the first place to speed it up. So if you have -- a fan-less graphics card, you won't be able to do this.
Now to do this, you want to make sure that's ticked, 'Enable low-level fan control' and put it also 'Fixed'. It should really be around the middle by default or something like that. Basically, if you are overclocking, I would turn it up to 100 percent to get as much performance out of your PC, out of your graphics card is possible. Then once again you click apply. Now, but the louder you go, the faster your fan spin, the louder it's going to be, but to me, it's only going to be a slide -- so it don't bother me, and when I am gaming, I've got the music up anyways. So I have it up as far as possible and that's it really. Once you've done that with your fans, you can go back to your original overclock settings and overclock and see how much more performance you can get.
Obviously, you can operate your fans, your -- things and things like that to allow you to overclock further in all out. We'll just -- and all of that, which I'll explain in other videos. That's it for this video really. I hope you've enjoyed the little video, and look out for more videos. If you want to learn a lot more about overclocking, it should be linked in the description boxes. This is James Scholes, and thanks for listening.
