Does it give noticable results and what should I OC it to?
i got mine at 568/318 and yes it help alot, but not all ATI cards will run clocked that high and be stable. just useing the overdrive feature helps. it clocks your card up to 526 core or 513 depending on the tempature of the GPU

I've got an ATI 9600XT and I don't think I'm going to bother OC'ing. Last time I OC'd a card It just caused problems. I'd personally just leave it and enjoy it for what it is. People are always wanting bigger and better...
I've got an ATI 9600XT and am OC'ing at 600/625 with no problems whatsoever. Using Omega drivers and Rivatuner. 3DMark03 gets Single Texture fill rate at 1000MT, Multi Texture fill rate at 2117MT @1024x768 resolution.
i doubt seriously you hit 600 core clock on an ATI built card, other than heavy mods but you didn't mention any modding you've done
AIDA32 confirms it, and so do the fill rates on 3DMark03.
9600XT boards are seriously limited by the memory bandwith. I suggest you try to get the best out of the ram first.
i'd just turn on over drive and enjoy...
overlocking is great when you have not much to loose
but bricking my shiny new $200 videcard would not make me happy
I have a GeCube 9600xt Extreme and managed to overclock it with PowerStrip to 565/335 with stock cooling. But the heatsink on this thing is HUGE!!!
I've done no modding whatsoever. Also, the heatsink does not seem to get hot. I'm going to try out the 4.1's this weekend, and see what the temperature probe on Overdrive says. Right now I've upped the memory to 650, so it's running at 600/650.
Well, loaded up the 4.1 cats, then the Omega 4.1s. Everything is working fine so far. Here's how it went:
Card was overclocked via RivaTuner at 600/660.
Ran Aquamark3 on the 1.10 Omega's first:
UT2003 Benchmark: @800x600
Installed the ATI Cats 4.1. Turned off Rivatuner overclocking.
Overdrive showed card temp at 31C, 499Mhz. Enabled Overdrive, gauge showed 526Mhz. Ran tests:
Didn't run UT2003 Bench at this time, but right after Aquamark3, I displayed overdrive panel, it was now at 37C and still clocking at 526Mhz.
Installed the Omega 4.1's, left overdrive on, and ran Aquamark3:
score: 32,825 (nice improvement!)
Lastly, turned off overdrive, OC'd with Rivatuner back to 600/660. Aquamark 3 final results:
