Ik zag op BXBoards wat handige info over TNT overclockers die niet willen overclocken met Powerstrip. Bij de Hercules Dynamite TNT wordt een overclock proggie meegeleverd (Hercumeter) en dat ding schijnt het ook op andere TNT kaarten te doen (in tegenstelling dat het overclock dingetje van Creative's TNT, want die doet het alleen met de Graphicsblaster TNT):
GO NOW!... and check out Planet RIVA if ya got a TNT based 2D/3D video accelerator.
...This just in from RAZOR. He has received and posted news that it appears as though the new Hercules 0.48 Dynamite TNT Drivers will work on other TNT based cards (Elsa Erazor II AGP, STB Velocity 4400 and now Canopus Spectra 2500 so far).
So what you say? Well it happens that Hercules has included a great little utility 'Hercumeter' for ajusting the TNT Core Clock as well as Memory Timeings. J
...So head on over to Planet RIVA for the rest of the story where Stefan Huber claims to be able to clock his Elsa Erazor II even higher than he could with his default driver and PowerStrip.
...I've been working the past couple days to see if I could crack the Creative "TNTClock.exe" utility or registry settings in an effort to try to overclock my Canopus Spectra 2500 TNT Drivers without the use of PowerStrip. Well now I have the Hercumeter to work with also and do intend on pursuing the idea further. However I did try these drivers on the Spectra and they do work as they should but without the TV out features. On my Spectra, BH6, 128, Celeron A@504mhz and the Hercules .048 driver. Useing a TNT clock of 108 x 117 I was able to get a 3D Mark 99 (800x600x16) score of 2389 and a Quake II (1024x768x16) Demo1 of 41.5 fps. Note tho, that I could not clock my Spectra and maintain stability any higher with Hercumeter than I could with PowerStrip : (
...Remember! If you decide to try this? You do it at yer own risk! So please be sure to proceed with caution! I'd recommend at least Safe Mode and a complete uninstall of your current video drivers. Also, when executing the driver install .exe file the auto install did not work for me. But it did unzip the drivers to the Windows & Windows\System folder and I was able to install them manually.
