i did the 300/450 route and it was unstable, crashed a few times my win2k, go with 290/420 MAX for decent gains and stability, ALso get the NEW NVIDIA drivers came out last week and hey rock!....about the sideband, i dont know what you mean.

Ive been messing around with the INNO version of this card 128 meg DDR for a while. The memory is crap at overclocking. However i took the crappy heat sink fan combo off and put an old AMD k6 2 heat sink on the GPU (needed a little alteration) so far i have managed to get the core clock up to 350mhz the problem is the memory. Ive got heat sinks on the top memory but nothing on the under side. Im gona engineer some later on if i get chance, see if i can get that memory up a bit more.

with the following speeds i got the following 3d mark score if anyone is interested.

core = 350
mem= 407

score = 5682
base score (no overclock) = 4984

(im not that well up on 3dmark , but i assume thats a good increase??)

on the following system

AMD xp 1900+ clocked to 2200+ @12.5*146
ga7dx+ motherboard
maxtor 80 gig 7200rpm
inno 3d gefore 4 400 128 meg ddr
512 meg 2100 ddr

Why don't you use PowerStrip? Or even better get a much better card like a 9600Pro or XT or a 9800. No speed increase can help the performance of that crappy card. No vertex & pixel shaders at any speed.

Have managed to get ASUS MX 420 64MB DDR (only 64bit memory bus though) to 332Mhz GPU and 442 Mhz on the RAM using powerstrip, up from 250Mhz GPU and 332Mhz RAM. This was with the standard passive heatsink but with a very large desk fan directed at the card. This was with the sliders at max and powerstrip wouldn't go any further.
Even though heatsink was cool because of the desk fan, the ram was quite warm and i would have doubts of long-term stability of this card at these settings, besides i hope to upgrade soon, but it would be interesting to strap a fast 80 or 92 mm fan with an adapter on it onto the card and see if it will still do it. I can send screenshots at request.

cheers

Sorry, forget to mention 3Dmark 2001 SE score went from 3917 to 4829. Think thats pretty good for a card of this age and a budget card at that (parents hell-bent on crap brand name computers. I need to build my own).

I have a Leadtek MX 440 - the best overclocking card I have ever owned!

Using just the Winfast utility supplied with the card, I took the core to 325 and the mem to 450. No problems, no crashes, nothing. After running the card at these settings for a couple of months, I replaced the HSF with an old P3 server heatsink, attaching the card's old fan. I added my own ramsinks bought from an electronics store. The Leadtek MX440 ram is rated at 4 ns, which gives you a max frequency of 250 single channel, thus 500MHz DDR. Sweet! I took the mem up to 500 and the core to 375. Remember, the stock settings are 275 core and 405 mem! The card runs just fine. If you increase either the core or the mem, artifacts appear, otherwise no problems. The card has been running at these settings for four months now. No problems.

Leadtek is the way to go for OC'ing 3D cards - they rate their components way above spec.

I've got an MSI GeForce MX 460

default core-275
mem-500(ddr 250)


I cranked it up to

core-372
mem-650(ddr 325)

seems to run stable so far, no extra cooling devices other than case fans.
played with the AGP drive strength in the bios though.

I would uninstall the drivers and reinstall the latest drivers and in future use coolbits to O/C the card if necessary. Really though that card is useless for gaming at any speed due to the fact their are no vertex & pixel shading support. Ugrade to at least a 5900FX or 9700Pro or 9800Pro. :P

Hey man, i have a MSI Geforce 4MX 440 and i´m able to run vertex e pixel shader´s games very well using 3D Analyze ;) . This is a good low price card, not everyone has $$$ to put on a Geforce FX 5900 ultra.

Yeh you can play those games but you won't have vertex & pixel shading in the game so it won't look as good. In think a good low price card is a 9700Pro or a 9600Pro or XT, anything less is unthinkable for gaming. I get 10600 on 3dmark2001se. Can a 440mx do that? :P

I have seen a mx440 get about 10,000 on 3dmark2001, it was at something like 420/620 with water cooling.
I have a leadtek mx440 and it gets 7000 at 340/510 up from 270/405.
I noticed a huge increase in performace putting the card in a barton 2500+ instead of a palomino 1600+.
the 1600+ only got 5800 at 350/515.
