NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 (DDR5) Overclocking Guide

Posted on Sunday, December 13 2009 @ 04:15:55 CET by

Our review of the Galaxy GeForce GT 240 (DDR5) showed that it was as fast as the GeForce 9600 GT (96 W). This makes it a superior solution as it is cheaper and has a lower power consumption and thermal output. It also supports DirectX 10.1 (as little of a difference that makes), DirectCompute 1.2 (instead of DirectCompute 1.1 in the GeForce 9600 GT) and a newer version of the PureVideo HD video processor. Finally, it comes with a HD audio processor built-in, so it supports 8-channel LPCM right out of the box.

As it runs with such a low thermal output, it would be a sin not to exploit that and try overclocking it to the max. Of course, its overclockability would be limited by the fact that it is only powered by the PCI Express bus, limiting it to just 75 W of power. There's no way to know for sure without testing, and that's what we are going to do today. NVIDIA conveniently provides us with all the necessary tools for easy overclocking, with complete access to the core, shader and memory clock speeds. They even allow you to control the fan speed. All you have to do is install the overclocking tool and see how far it can go! Check it out at TechARP.
