Can people post their OC results here for the 9800gx2, i want to see wat their capable off. Currently I got mine at (700/1650/2100) wat should i overclock if i want to play crysis at hacked very high settings? I can do about 20-30fps on hacked settings XP for 2 hours at 1680x1050 0/2xaa(this is without overclocking)

if you dont mind the fan running on FULL then you can overclock it to 750/1850/2200 should be fine from what i have seen.but you may get higher if you got a quality card under the hood.just watch out for any article and monitor the temp.

It's me again, the maximum over-clock I got out of 9800GX2 was 830/1150/2075. After that it becomes unstable and after 850mhz clock it crashes entirely. So.. overall that is a stable over-clock of about 35% from stock. Final note: I would have never made it this far with stock cooling.

Just a quick note: in 830/1150/2075, 830MHz iz the core clock, 1150MHz is the memory clock, 2075MHz is the shader clock. Just so there is no confusion...

A lot of it is based on luck of the draw, OP may have just had a good card. Cooling is usually a smaller issue and doesn't pose as big of a problem, that is assuming your case has decent airflow.
