There isn't much to introduce in a guide like this, but I'll tell you what's in this guide nevertheless. The two programs I used to overclock my video card were NVmax and Coolbits. Unfortunately, NVmax has become an unsupported product recently, but it still remains an extremely powerful tool. Coolbits on the other hand is nowhere near as powerful as NVmax, but at least it remains supported.


Anyway, in the guide I look at the simple overclocking in Coolbits and NVmax, and the much more complicated, and rather useful, extra features of NVmax. After that, we take a brief look at the BIOS and cooling and a few of the problems related to overclocking.


On with the show, lets take a look at what overclocking is.
