Beginners Guides Cases and Access. It will do for any Middle-End computer. Besides, the GPUs are also overclocked. Overclocking is usually the quickest and most affordable route, and manufacturers motherboards to videocards and memory have certainly made things easier with custom utilities that support such tweaking. Even its retention module is old fashioned – two pins, while even Middle-End products have been using four-screw retention modules for a long time already, even for simple heatsinks. We are interested in these models, because both of them are based on the non-standard design. So, this company was born in , but the current status was obtained just a couple of years ago.

The card does not differ much from the usual GS in price. Above this speed the V-Ranger test tool complained of instability. The risk of damaging the product is much higher yet Biostar must offer that warranty and they can change the agreements on risks all they want. The memory handled this remarkably well, easily passing MHz and MHz before settling on a top speed of MHz.

Video 3Digests Video cards: Anyway, today we test an in-expensive GS, and BioStar is offering that voltage regulation on it. You see the problem here? Biostar does a decent job with biosfar user’s manual even though it’s fairly generic. There is enough room to manoeuvrer with the voltage values, that mainstream and hard core overclocking enthusiasts alike will be satisfied Please take a moment to look over PCSTATS test system configurations before moving on to the individual benchmark results on the next page.
Perhaps it’s not surprising, voltage options for videocards will probably dramatically decrease the lifespan of the components tuned to run together in harmony, and swapping out videocard heatsinks for custom coolers is tricky for those without much experience.
The card worked well, we had no gripes with it. No jacket here, the box itself is painted with bright colors.
We ran into a bit of a problem shortly thereafter because V-Ranger’s memory frequency maxes out at MHz, and the videocard GDDR3 had no problem whatsoever running at that speed with 1. Owing to the extra dimension in Biostar’s overclocking palate, we’ll first overclock the videocard using its stock memory and GPU voltages.
In both cases, the GPU and memory voltages remained at their stock values, 1. Dawn of a New Overclocking Era. Not bad at all.

For the budget minded people out there for not a lot of money they get to play games at 10×7 and even 12×10 at acceptable framerates. Besides, the cooler is not noisier than Zalman. While enthusiasts have been overclocking videocards for years now, one of the biggest limitations has been a lack of voltage controls. Even its retention module is old fashioned – two pins, while even Middle-End products have been using four-screw retention modules for a long time already, even for simple heatsinks.
It will be able to guide even novice computer users through installation and basic software set up. Typically a higher voltage could only be achieved by changing a resistor on the graphics card effectively losing warranty. Biostar’s two videocard overclocking programs allow you to not only tune the core and memory clock speed from within Windows XP, but also adjust the GPU core and memory voltages!
The video card is secured not to dangle inside. For gamers, there’s never such a thing as enough speed, or eye candy, or graphics details, or physics processing, or Dawn of a New Overclocking Era.
So I decided to squeeze in one more GS review for this one occasion only. Besides, the GPUs are also overclocked.
