    Voltage mod for GT2xx cards with Riva Tuner

    Hi,
    I want some help in overclocking my Nvidia GT2xx series card. I am using first Nvidia tool for that where I noticed some instability and now I switched to RivaTuner. My voltage does stays stable here. I heard there is some voltage tweaks for the GT 2 series card by RivaTuner. What are they and how to apply the same to perform a much stable overclocking.

    Normally Riva is compatible with Windows 7 64 bit. For that you need to install the latest version of Nvidia driver which is 2.24c. If you installed the nvidia 196.21 driver, there is a bug in that. There is no issue of overclocking with RivaTuner or nvidia tool. The bug lies itself in the driver. For this I will recommend you to install the nvidia driver 197.13 beta.

    If the arrival of a new range of GPUs generally characterized a sudden urge to upgrade his machine is also an opportunity to make deals with the old lines of graphics cards. To recall, the Geforce GT 240 supports DirectX 10.1, has a fine engraving of 40 nm for a GPU clocked at 550 MHz, GDDR5 memory between 512 MB and 1024 to 1700 MHz. You must checkout your config first.

    GT 2xx series are low config cards which are most offere characterized by factory overclocking, a change in heat sink or a low profile format. The specifications are identical to the nVidia reference model, namely a GT215 GPU burned in 40 minutes, supports DirectX 10.1, and clocked at 550 MHz and 1340 MHz for the Shakers. But also a gigabyte of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1580 MHz on a 128-bit memory bus, VGA output, DVI and HDMI 1.3a from then complete the map which integrates a conventional active heatsink.

    GT 2xx series card are not so powerful to handle out extreme overclocking. It allows a processor to relieve overstretched or too small for watching movies in high definition. However, it is not perfect for equipping a computer dedicated to home cinema. Indeed, we were disappointed by the higher consumption on the Radeon HD 5450. In standby mode the display and GeForce 113 W 72 W cons on the competing model.

    They are low config cards and I will too also not recommend for overclocking them. Rivatuner can of course overclock GT285 cards, but the risk remain the same on them. They are not built for the same. I will too recommend you to not perform any steps on this otherwise you might damage the card and that can led you a permanent loss for your system.
