I recently bought a GeForce Fx5700 LE, but I can barely see the difference with my former GeForce MX440 except for pixel shaders and other new stuff.
I wanted to know if there was a way to overclock it or (as i heard it was sometimes possible) change it to a standard Fx5700.

Thanks.

Hmm...

Go to the control panel, then system, then hardware, and finally device manager.

Under Display Adapters, right click "GeForce FX5700LE" or whatever it shows, and go to UPDATE DRIVER.

Install from specific location, Don't Search, and uncheck "Show compatible hardware." Then you just have to pick the FX5700 (NOT THE ULTRA! Vanilla flavor please!) and let that update process go through.

If when you reboot the screen is garbled, very quickly hit the reset button and boot into safe mode, and revert back to the FX5700LE driver. Then come back here for instructions on how to OC the card. Otherwise, just use the FX5700 driver. It should work out.

Good luck!

Ok go to guru3d.com and download either coolbits rivatuner or hardpage to OC your card.And i m not sure but u could probably flash the bios to a regular FX5700 or maybe even the FX5700ultra.

You should be seeing a fair differance from that upgrade, try setting your card to 'performance' instead of quallity (its somewhere in your advanced display settings) and you should see better results.

If that doesnt work then do what mothow. said and download coolbits. BTW if you have a passivly cooled heatsink you might not want to push it too far.

I do have a passive heatsink cooling and no temperature monitoring.
I'll try something anyway.

Thanks for all your replies.
:)

I overclocked my PNY Verto GeForce 5700 LE video card to 375 MHz core and 610 MHz memory speed.

It is stable as a rock at that speed. That's a big performance boost from 250 MHz core and 500 MHz memory. I am using RivaTuner software to do it.

You probably wont see a difference anyway after you over clock, your processor is so far out of date. That is whats holding it back

After overclocking it you can get performance close to that of what a regular 5700 is capable of clocking to....

try to get active cooling for it, on a 5700LE the cooling is already quite stressed out.

Ive snapped:
An xbox360 and a 12" iBook....
And a kawasaki er-6n to mod instead

I also have a 5700LE. Mines a XFX model and I've managed to OC it to 440 core 600mem using the standard nVidea control pannel. Though I do have active cooling, I think your passsive cooling will hold you back.

This OC gives me a AquaMark score of 18,899, whihc is a large improvment over the score when GPU is at stock speeds.

I would be intreested if it is possible to do anything else to the card, such as flash the bios or unlock pipe lines ect????

After reading the previous, I tried cranking it up a bit more Using the nVidia driver alone I now overclocked it to 450 MHz clock and 640 MHz memory. I played Half Life 2 at that speed for about an hour.

That is the PNY "Verto" 5700LE Optima card. It does have a fan by the way not just a heat sink on the PNY card.

My system is a Dell Poweredge 400SC server running Windows Server 2003 with Pentium 2.8 GHz processor with Hyperthreading and a 1 GB of RAM

I've read some good reviews on the PNY 5700LE, particualy that it's a fantastic OC'er. It was a hard choice between the XFX and the PNY, in the end I choose the XFX. (due to previous good experince with XFX and on Supreets respected recomedation). ;)

So, anyone tried if flashing a normal 5700 or 5700 ultra bios on a 5700LE did any good to the preformence? since m having a 9800pro which runs way harder with an XT bios (when set to pro stock speeds). I hoped to get some kind of improvement also with the 5700LE, anyone tried yet?

Hello

What the difference between active cooling and passive cooling?
Just the fan or something else?

Olivier

Outch! I'm surprised some new cards can run well with just a heatsink on their CPU core.

Just a follow up I have been running my PNY Verto card at 450 MHz core, 640 MHz memory speed for several weeks now and it is rock solid at that level of overclocking. The PNY card has a fan and a heatsink.

Excellent bargain I got mine at Best Buy for $99 early in the year.

hello I've been trying to overclock my geforce FX 5700LE with cool bits and I just cant get it to go past 300MHz core and 500MHz for the ram and I'm really confused since you guys said you were getting your card to 500MHz core and 640MHz ram and its the same card I also have a 80mm fan on top of the card along with the stock fan on the card. Could someone help me out here?
